Organize Your New Home With These Storage Solutions

Organize Your New Home With These Storage Solutions

The general rule for unpacking your new home is to make sure there is a place for everything. It is best to start creating storage solutions as soon as you are ready to unpack your belongings. Whether you are buying double-duty furniture or maximizing your cabinets, you can organize each room with the following storage solutions.


Living Room

It is easy for a living room to become flooded with chargers, remote controls and magazines. You can easily stash these items in your storage ottoman or console coffee table. If you have extra throw pillows and blankets, hide them in a storage bench by the window. Organize your books, DVDs and frames on a shelving unit or built-in bookcase.



The kitchen is a high traffic area that needs to be organized to avoid chaos. Start by investing in a drawer divider for your utensils and cookware. You can also put the corner cabinet to use with a two or three tiered lazy Susan, which is perfect for your non-perishable food. If you are tired of sorting through a pile of pots in your cabinet, invest in a drawer with two sections to organize your pots and lids.



You never want to find a mess when you walk in your bathroom, and you can avoid the frustration by organizing your toiletries into labeled containers. Another idea is to make the most of your wall space with a floating shelf, which can be used for towels or toiletries. Why not use your cabinet doors as a storage solution? A cabinet organizer is a great spot for hair care products.



It is hard to relax when your belongings are scattered all over your bedroom. Start organizing your bedroom by investing in a nightstand with storage space for your tablet, chargers and books. A basket on top of the nightstand can be used for your phone or jewelry. Use the space under your bed for shoes, luggage or seasonal items. You can also create storage space on your wall with floating shelves or built-in cabinets.



You are going to keep your seasonal decor, outdoor gear and unpacked items in your basement, so it will be easy for this space to become cluttered over time. Use a pegboard and shelving unit for the items you use often. The items you only use several times a year can be placed in storage bins, and the bins can be placed on a tote storage unit to free up floor space.

It is best to buy your organizers, shelves and cabinetry after you move into your new home. This way, you can take measurements and make sure the pieces fit in your space. Your REALTOR® can point you in the direction of the furniture and home stores in your new neighbourhood.

If you need help coming up with storage solutions for your new home, you can always ask your REALTOR® for ideas. Your REALTOR® has experience with different types of homes, and they may have their own ideas for making the most of your storage space.
