If you are still using storage items that you have had since college, raise your hand… or at least, some that look like they should be in a dorm space. They did a fantastic job of fulfilling their purpose, but you don’t have to hang onto them forever.
Even the slightest organizational change in your storage systems can often have a major positive influence on the function and the style of your home, and you owe it to yourself to have organized storage solutions that are as beautiful as it they are practical.
Ready for some minor organized storage solutions updates that will still make a totally major difference? Here are some suggestions to get you started.
If you cram all your expensive cosmetics in a cluttered makeup bag and can never find anything try an acrylic makeup organizer instead. They are inexpensive, will look stylish and tidy on your counter or vanity, and you’ll never have to search through a packed makeup bag again. And if you own a lot of makeup, try a similar option with drawers, or use matching storage jars for neatly storing all of your products in one spot.
Speaking of cluttered, how is your closet looking? If it’s overstuffed, messy, and you are not even sure what’s in there a when it comes to organized storage solutions, custom closet solution will be a life changer (really!) Stores like IKEA and Home Depot offer custom closet storage solutions at a more affordable than you might imagine cost and they will even come and install them for you if need.
Instead of using plastic storage cabinets like those from your dorm room past, try using a cube storage cabinet decked out with stylish baskets. If you love the roll feature of your old ones you can still find that, like the unit seen above, just in a far more efficient and stylish option.
If your towels tend to be stuffed everywhere in the bathroom, or your bathroom space is so small one cluttered towel rack is your only option then try a stylish over the door towel rack instead. They save space, are sturdier and your towels will look a lot neater (and dry faster too.)
Basic plastic laundry baskets may get the job done, but if you want a laundry solution that you won’t want to hide in your closet, consider investing in a lidded hamper with dividers, It’ll look more stylish wherever you keep it in your home, and the dividers make it easier to separate clothes from the get-go. When it’s time to do the wash, just pull out the cloth totes from the bin—a sleeker look and an easy laundry routine, what’s not to love?
Still have all those plastic storage boxes stuffed under your bed? Those plastic lidded bins from your college dorm have served their purpose, and you owe it to yourself to retire them and upgrade. You can DIY roll-out drawers to fit and match your bed like the ones or you can purchase drawers—or even an under bed trunk—to keep your things organized and out of sight but still easily accessible.
Having odd storage jars and bins in your pantry makes it easy to put mismatched containers away and keep them out of sight, out of mind, but you’ll appreciate your pantry a lot more if it’s easier to see and find exactly what you need when you need it, and it will look stylish, too. Matching, stackable containers can help you achieve exactly that. Along with a good pantry organization session that is.
