Are Storage Solutions the Unsung Heroes of Organized Homes?


We’ve all been there. Gazing at a room filled with clutter and wondering how it all could have possibly piled up. But don’t worry; you're not alone! Just about everyone has dealt with overwhelming clutter at one point or another. Sometimes organization and decluttering are the last things on our minds when life gets busy. 

Ultimately, simple and effective storage ideas are at the heart of every organized home. Let this blog be your sign to dive into home organization. With so many strategies and resources to get you started, your home can be beautiful, functional, and organized in no time. In this blog, we will explore some of the best ways to get started in your home organization journey and detail several storage solutions you may not have considered. 

Tired of the Clutter? Start Organizing

The weight of clutter is more than just physical. They say that the state of our spaces reflects the state of our minds, and we’ve been there! Clutter and mess can make you feel overwhelmed and stressed, but it doesn’t have to be that way! 

Getting started with an organizational project might initially feel overwhelming, but all it takes is your commitment to start. Break down your home into small spaces and chip away at your goal day by day. Consider organizing one room — even one shelf, basket, or drawer — at a time until you have made significant progress. It doesn’t have to be a daunting process, and before you know it, you will have completely transformed your chaotic and messy space into an organized oasis that you enjoy spending time in. 

Dive in with the Basics

Begin your journey with the essentials. Storage containers, bins, and totes are your best friends as you start to declutter. So much of the stress of messy and disorganized spaces is due to the visible chaos around the room. When you can wrangle those items into bins and baskets, the room will almost immediately feel tidier. By neatly stowing away the clutter, not only will your home’s interior get the spotlight it deserves, but you'll also have the satisfaction of knowing everything's right where it should be. The beauty? When it's time for a cleanup, pop items into these containers, and you’re all set. Cleaning becomes a breeze when everything has a place to go. 

Continue to Expand Your Storage

The further you get into organizing your belongings, you may find that you simply need more space to store everything. Whether you need to rearrange existing spaces or find a new creative way to store different categories of clothing, games, family mementos, or otherwise, sometimes your existing storage area is just too small for what you want to store. Maybe you need to use an extra closet, a dedicated room, or even a storage unit to spread out your organization. When you can create some breathing room for your stored items, the clutter feels less overwhelming, and it becomes much easier to find what you’re looking for or put things away quickly. 

From Storage to a Workspace: More Than One Use

Have you ever considered a storage shed for extra storage space? This is an often overlooked tool in your organization game that can completely level up your home storage. This isn't just a place to shove things you don’t need immediately; it's an extension of your home. From safely storing tools and equipment that would otherwise clutter your garage to serving as a backyard home office, the possibilities with a shed are boundless.

Our Top 5 Home Storage Solutions

Home organization doesn’t have to feel overwhelming. Get started with some of our favorite organizational solutions for any space!

1. Shelving

One of the biggest mistakes we often make in our homes is neglecting the vertical real estate we have at our disposal. We can capitalize on the unused air space by integrating diverse shelving units — from floating shelves to sturdy bookcases. This maximizes the storage potential and creates an aesthetic dimension to our walls. Think of them as functional art, where both form and function come together. Whether for books, plants, or decorative items, shelves can transform the dynamics of any room.

2. Pegboards

Pegboards are no longer relegated to the confines of your garage or workshop. Their versatility has found utility in kitchens, craft rooms, and even kids' play areas. With customizable hooks and shelves, pegboards offer a dynamic storage solution that can adapt to your evolving needs. Whether it's hanging pots and pans, organizing craft supplies, or even showcasing jewelry, the humble pegboard is a modern-day hero in home organization.

3. Decluttering

Marie Kondo took the world by storm with her unique philosophy on tidying up. At the core of her method lies a simple question: Does it spark joy? By evaluating our possessions with this lens, we can sift through the clutter and curate a collection of items that truly matter and that we want to continue to manage in our homes. 

4. Nooks and Crannies

It's easy to overlook the small, inconspicuous spaces in our homes, but these nooks and crannies can be organizational goldmines. Think under the stairs, the space above doorways, or even the gaps between appliances. These can be transformed into clever storage solutions with a bit of creativity. From pull-out drawers beneath staircases to narrow shelving units fitting into tight spaces, there's always a way to make these overlooked spaces work in your favor.

5. Storage Containers

Beyond their obvious utility, storage containers can be beautiful decorative elements in a room. Rustic wooden crates can complement a farmhouse chic decor, while woven baskets bring a touch of boho flair. Even simple plastic bins can be jazzed up with labels and decals to make them a key part of the room's aesthetic.
