Stylish Ways To Organize Your Home

January 6th, 2011

Keeping your home organized is one of the greatest challenges for homeowners. Even those with the best intentions often find that daily life gets in the way. If you are living with other people and everyone is leading busy, happy lives, clutter will build up and you may find yourself overwhelmed with your disorganized environment. Some people are reluctant to bring organization to their homes because it makes them think of bulky plastic tubs or unsightly cardboard boxes. If your idea of organization does not extend beyond milk crates, it may be time to do a little shopping. There are plenty of organization products now on the market that are stylish and effective. Those with a music room can store their items in piano benches or sheet music cabinet. You may even find a piano bench is a great solution for organization even if you do not have an instrument.

Material goes a long way in turning an organized space into a stylish one. If you hang curtains to hide unsightly storage areas, you can brighten the space and keep it looking great. Shelves filled with boxes and containers can look utilitarian and unattractive. Hanging a few curtains to block the area makes things look a lot better. You can use the curtains to create additional walls in your space that are as colorful and stylish as wallpaper.

There are pieces of furniture that serve equally as storage pieces. You can furnish your home and leave people guessing how you stay so organized. Pieces like storage chests, ottomans and cabinets all make for great organization and look great too. Most of the time, these pieces can be used as furniture and for storage. With ottomans, you can put your feet up on your storage and with shelving; you can place accessories on top of the piece, bringing style and personalization to your storage unit.

If your home is just too crowded, take your storage outside. There are pieces that are weather resistant that can be placed on patios and in sunrooms, creating storage space where you least expect it. This is especially useful if the items you need to store are garden or outdoor items to begin with. Whenever possible, store items in the place they are most frequently used, like keeping barbecue equipment outside instead of bringing it into the kitchen or dining area. There is no reason to add clutter to your indoor space with items that you will just need to carry outdoors when putting them into use.

Lastly, personalize your storage items in creative ways. You can turn basic storage containers into decorative, stylish pieces with paint, decoupage or fabric. Even the most unsightly storage can become decorative furniture pieces with a little creativity. Best of all, you do not need to rely on the storage industry to create something that will complement your personal style. If you are the one decorating your storage, you can choose any color or style you want. This means you will get exactly what you want with just a little additional effort.
