Ways You’ve Been Wasting Space All Along

Keeping your home organized is no simple task. That’s why it’s so important to do it right. All too often, homeowners make simple organizing mistakes that end up costing them a lot of space. Turning these problems around is easy with a little effort and some professional remodeling help.

If You’re Organizing like This, You’re Losing Space

When it comes to home organizing, it’s easy to make mistakes that can wind up taking up space. One of the biggest is collecting storage containers instead of making a comprehensive storage plan. Trendy boxes and baskets might look cool sitting around your house, but they can contribute to clutter if they’re not right for your needs.

It’s also important to avoid putting everything you have on display. You might have dozens of items out on your kitchen counter. Maybe your bathroom counter is littered with countless beauty products.

In the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, you may be losing precious space to unorganized drawers. Out-of-control drawer clutter takes up space and causes annoying drawer jams. Visible debris can cause problems in other rooms too. DVDs, games and remotes can overtake your living room if they’re stored in open media stacks or kept on the coffee table.

The costliest mistake you can make when organizing, though, is not thinking a project through completely. You need to know your exact plan and make sure that your family knows it too.

Making Over Your Organizing Mistakes

Keep purpose in mind when you’re addressing your organizing problems and you’ll find the right solutions. To start, break up with cute containers that aren’t useful. Choose organizing products that meet your exact needs.

Incorporate space-saving appliances during a kitchen remodel to make clearing the counters easier. If you just can’t resist displaying some of your great beauty finds in the bathroom, put them on a pretty tray and keep the selection to a maximum of five items. If you don’t have ample cabinet or shelf space, consider remodeling to include more storage space.

Use organizing trays in drawers to keep contents in order. Get creative and use silverware or jewelry organizers to sort other items. In your living room, consider using built-in cabinets or streamlined shelving to store items. Designate a place for everything and help your family members remember where to store things.
