Home Organization: Using Shelves to Organize Your Home

Is your home a storage nightmare?

Is your home a storage nightmare? Not all homes were designed with busy modern people in mind. From a lack of closets to lack of shelving, if your home is lacking in the storage space department, it’s likely that you’ll find yourself in an organizational crisis. When you only have so much space, it becomes challenging to ensure that every object has its perfect place. Unique shelving might be the solution to your problem!

Over Bathroom Door Shelving

Bathrooms are one of the many places in your home that likely doesn’t have enough space. Not only are they small, but the layout often is not conducive to adding additional storage. Making space overhead is often the only way to improve storage without reducing your foot space. Over door storage, in particular, is a great way to add subtle storage to your small bathroom. While you won’t want to store bulky items in these as they can be difficult to access without a stool, it’s the perfect place for extra towels and toilet paper.

Adding To Windows

Gaining storage space while keeping your access to natural light is easy when you add glass shelving! Glass shelves along your windows make the perfect place for light safe tchotchkes and plants; along with allowing for more storage for smaller items, glass window shelves are a unique and stunning look that will make your home feel more luxurious.

Between Wall Studs

While it is a little more invasive, making use of the space between your studs is a great way to gain much needed and creative space without losing floor space. Most studs are 16” apart and will allow you to obtain a significant depth of space. Not only is a space saver, but it also looks great too.

Make The Most Of Your Kitchen

When you start using the stud space as a primer, it’s possible to get the most out of your kitchen! A mix of over door and overhead shelving, as well as built-in shelves using the studs, can help you create beautiful, functional storage space for your home!
