Creating storage and organization options does not have to take away from the style of a home.
Home organization and storage is one of the biggest complaints that people have with their homes. Most people feel that their home is not organized well and that there are not enough storage options for them to use, additionally, they think that this is a problem that everyone deals with, so they think it is just something they have to live with. Many people blame their homes, blame their lack of time, or simply admit to lack of effort, but organization and storage still continues to be a common problem in a lot of homes.
Fortunately, there is a way out of the organization and storage trap. There are a lot of easily adaptable, stylish and affordable ways to make a home more organized and find a way to create the perfect storage area for every corner of the home. A lot of these methods are easy for anyone to utilize, and best of all, they add to the style and design of the home instead of distracting from it. Here are a few stylish storage and organization options for any home.
An under-the-bed basket
The space underneath the bed is on of the most commonly underutilized spaces in the home. This is a great space for storing things that are not often used or that simply need to be out of sight. Under-the-bed storage can be made to match the bed frame or match the rest of the bedroom décor. Instead of settling for plastic totes on wheels, opt for something more original like a wicker basket or a painted metal tray to store things underneath the bed easily and stylishly.
A modern bedroom wardrobe
Closet space seems to run out all too quickly in a family home, and everyone ends up piling things on top of each other in the closet. This not only makes things difficult to find, it is incredibly embarrassing to look at. Instead, opt for a floor to ceiling closet that gives the room a modern and contemporary look. This is a great way to add dimension to the room and add more space where it’s needed most. This can be an expensive addition to the room, or a cheap fix by using curtains.
A multitasking entertainment center
Every new piece of technology and every new gadget adds a few more wires and buttons to the collection. These items may improve other aspects of life, but they can make organization and design difficult. It is easy for an entertainment center to look cluttered because of this. Instead of starting at wires and buttons, make the TV and Cable Vision the center of attention in the entertainment room. Hide wires simply in decorated boxes and bins places on the entertainment center, or even build an entertainment center with this storage available.
A sleek desk cabinet system
The home office desk is another spot in the home that seems to get easily cluttered. All of the tasks and to-do lists seem to pile up on it with no sense of schedule or direction. Have a system in place for each item that gets thrown onto the desk. Glass cabinets are a great way to skim the desk for what is needed while still keeping it all hidden away. Additionally, hang corkboards to place inspiration and to-do lists for the family. These ideas keep everyone on task while still maintaining a fun and stylish home.
A blend-in bookcase
For any other place in the home that needs more storage and organization, a bookcase is always a safe and easily adaptable option. There are a lot of great ways to create a bookcase that is anything but an eyesore for the home. Some ideas that have worked well in the past include installing a fake bookcase made out of cheap shelving, offset bookcases and bookcases that contain items that are anything but books. New modern ideas include painting a bookcase to blend in with the wall it sits against. This is a very sleek look that makes the entire room flow evenly.
