The kitchen (aka. The heart of our home)
Drawer organisers in the fridge are a great idea to keep your fridge neat and tidy and stop clutter creep. It’s also a cheap way to go from chaos to calmness. Side storage shelves in the fridge are another great idea to help organise your beverages, as well as sauces and other necessities. Pantries can be another place of chaos but we there are now pull-out pantries that are the stuff of dreams.
Pull-out pantries maximise the amount of space you have, especially when you put them in corners. It also looks aesthetically pleasing. How about a labelled spice drawer? Labelling your spices can help you organise your kitchen, but it also makes it much easier to find the correct one when it’s time to use them. And on the topic of cooking, a slide-out food prep station near a bin is absolutely genius. You can cook without having mountains of food scraps building up.
The bathroom can be a tricky one to organise. However, to make it a little easier, implementing a storage ladder for towels is a great start. Not only does it take up little space for multiple towels, it also looks aesthetically pleasing. Another tip would be to choose clear drawers and shelf organisers. Clear drawers have the clever knack of acting as a mental trick; we don’t like looking at a mess so this is a good visual prompt to keep your drawers neat and tidy. If you’re looking for a quick and easy fix, consider bathroom mirrors with cupboards. It’s a 2-in-1 solution for maximising storage!
It’s our sanctuary, but also the place that can get very messy, very quickly. Having a built-in wardrobe is a great way to maximise space. Drawers and stand-alone wardrobes take up a lot of acreage, so having a built-in wardrobe can optimise space, while also providing a neat home for your clothes. Under-bed storage is also another winner. Having baskets or sliding drawers with shoes, electronics, and other random bits and bobs can help make your room feel bigger and tidier. A decorative laundry hamper is also a good way to go. Not only does it look good, but it also provides a space (which isn’t the floor) for your dirty clothes to hang out before making it to the laundry.
Those are our tips and tricks to maximise your storage space in your Jindowie home. Which ones will you try and what others would you add to the list?
