How to Organize Five Rooms in Your Home with Storage Systems

When you have a home, you must have storage systems that work in each room. While it might take some time to choose storage devices, you will appreciate having things organized so that your home looks clutter-free. Here are a few great ideas for creating storage systems that are appropriate for your needs.


Storage Systems 1: Organizing Children's Rooms

Children need storage systems that they can reach and that are simple to use. You should also think carefully about the safety of any storage devices in a child's bedroom or other areas of a home to avoid accidents. Inexpensive plastic baskets are an excellent choice for children because the items won't break easily, and you can wash the items. In many cases, you can find inexpensive laundry or sorting baskets that are in bright colors. These items are easy for a child to store in a closet in a bedroom, but you can also use simple metal shelves to hold the items.


Storage Systems 2: Hobby Areas of Your Home

If you enjoy sewing or other hobbies that require numerous small tools, then you can have storage systems such as sewing boxes that sit on a shelf or that have legs for placing on the floor. Pegboards that are attached to the wall are great for storing hobby supplies such as paintbrushes or tiny tools. One of the benefits from pegboards is that the tools are separated, making the items easy to see and find when you are ready to make a craft. Remember that if you have any hobby supplies that are dangerous or toxic, placing the items in a locked cabinet is essential when you have children.


Storage Systems 3: Entranceway Storage Devices

When you have an entranceway where your family keeps their outerwear such as jackets and coats along with boots, gloves, hats and umbrellas, it can become a huge mess. Rather than having a pile of wet and muddy items on the floor, you can create storage cubbies that are similar to what students have in schools. You can label each cubby with a family member's name so that the items are organized carefully. The cubby spaces at the bottom of the storage system are perfect for younger children while teenagers can place their items toward the top of the item.


Storage Systems 4: Living Room Storage Systems

If you have children, then your living room is often an entertainment and play area. When you have electronic equipment such as televisions, DVD players and game machines, you need an entertainment center that has shelves that are the proper sizes for the devices. It is a good idea to choose an entertainment center with spaces that have doors or drawers to store smaller items such as board games, CDs or game cartridges. With this type of storage system, you will have a living room that looks clutter-free when guests arrive at your home.


Storage Systems 5: Organize Bathrooms

When it takes an hour to clean the bathrooms in your home, it is probably disorganized with piles of towels along with an assortment of bottles and jars on the countertops. You can improve a bathroom’s appearance along with making it easier to clean with the right storage systems. Look for cabinets that you can install above the toilet or along the walls so that you can store bathroom linens and beauty care products. You can also use metal or wooden fixtures such as towel bars, toothbrush holders and soap dishes to make a bathroom look better.
