Home Storage Solutions and Organization Ideas by Room
Kitchen: Food storage containers such as glass jars and ceramic canisters are ideal kitchen storage solutions. Use glass or plastic jars to store a variety of dried goods, such as flour, rice, pasta, lentils, beans, nuts and more. Bread boxes, another countertop or shelf kitchen organizer, are proven to keep loaves soft and fresh longer. Keep your refrigerator tidy with coordinating produce keepers, specifically designed to preserve fresh fruit and vegetables.
Dining Room: Buffets and sideboards stylishly store dinnerware, serveware and special-occasion flatware when not in use. Nestled against a wall, dining room storage furniture also offers extra tabletop space to house a table lamp, candles, framed photos and other decor. If you prefer to keep the surface sparse but still want room for display, consider floating wall shelves. Organize barware, cocktail glasses and your staple liquors in a bar cart, bar cabinet or wine rack.
Living Room: Make the most of what is likely one of the largest and most well-used spaces in your home, and invest in a media console. Extra shelving and drawers give the space purpose outside of housing the TV and save room for other living room furniture like chairs, tables, ottomans and more. Beautifully-textured woven baskets can collect anything from magazines and books to extra decorative pillows and throw blankets. Hidden compartments in storage ottomans and benches organize on the sly and out of sight.
Home Office: Filing cabinets help keep your home office desk clutter-free and keep important documents, files, bills and the like organized and out of sight. Credenzas are typically bigger than filing cabinets and offer both shelving and drawers for anything from books to shoes. Your office bookcase needn't only be used for books—display collectibles, or get creative and make bookends out of bud vases or decorative bowls. Leaning bookshelves save floor space and add dimension by making use of a wall instead.
Bathroom: Bath towers, a necessary home storage solution, can be used as the keeper of all extra towels, bath sheets and washcloths. Keep track of bath linens in need of a wash, too, with lined rattan hampers, which can be coordinated with other rattan bathroom counter storage accessories such as tissue box covers and vanity trays.
Bedroom: Chests and dressers are classic home storage solutions for the bedroom. Perfect for all casual clothing that doesn't need to be hung like jeans and pajamas, they can also be used to organize extra blankets, bedding and other linens. Armoires and wardrobes, bigger pieces of furniture, have enough space to hang formal wear such as dresses and jackets, as well as room to store shoes and other miscellaneous wardrobe items.
