Organizing Ideas for Every Room
My posts about storage and organizing ideas for your home are hugely popular — I guess many of you either need ideas or love organizing as much as I do.
The coffee table you see in the above picture is perfect for storing Landon’s many Playmobil and LEGO toys, and I was able to find it in the As Is section at IKEA.
Here are more organizing ideas I’ve found for every room in the house that might help you to organize your home more efficiently.
My dream home would have all of these — wouldn’t that be amazing?
Organizing Ideas for Every Room in Your Home
You can add a bench with storage basket in the smallest entry hall to maximize space — something we never have enough of in the Blue Cottage because we don’t have a basement or a garage.
Living or dining room:
Yes, please: extra storage in a basket right under the table! I use baskets a lot in our home.
Kids room or craft room:
Organizing toys or art and craft supplies becomes so much easier when you have the right storage for them!
I love this idea of using vintage crates to take advantage of wall space. I have several crates I use for craft supplies and to display small vintage collections.
I like using shoe organizers in several rooms in my house. The one behind our pantry door is where I store my many scarves.
Wooden magazine holders screwed to the wall and topped with a shelf create clever and unique storage.
Living room, bedroom, or reading nook:
Stack two inexpensive box shelves on top of each other and offset them for visual interest.
Kitchen, home office, or craft room:
Repurpose a plate rack to store folders, cook books, or magazines.
A small tension rod can do wonders for storage, here for spices in the kitchen.
I love this hidden headboard storage! IKEA sells one for one of their beds (we bought it for Landon), or your can build your own. You could do this with any short headboard by just moving it off the wall a bit and adding a shelf.
Don’t have room for a library in your home? But you do have closets…
Just hang crown molding in a closet and you have instant storage space for all of your shoes. Genius!
