My favorite spaces are those in which everything has a place.
Unfortunately, we haven’t totally mastered that in my house yet, but this post is full of awesome and creative ideas that I’m sure will help us get there.
Vertical space is really valuable and frequently underutilized. These shelves provide a ton of storage space while still looking pretty and presentable.
I’m sorry towel bar, but I’m breaking up with you. With four kids in our house, towel bars are just a nuisance I don’t want to bother with anymore. Hooks are much easier for kids to manage so towels may finally stay off the floor.
Hooks and hidden storage, now we’re talking! The plans for creating this beautiful piece are in The Idea Room’s original post so be sure to click the link to check those out.
Under the cabinet storage can be a really scary place in our house. It’s as if opening the door is an invitation to toss anything and everything inside, which is why I’m digging these containers as an alternative. Just because something’s going to be hidden doesn’t mean it can’t be cute.
I love this magnetic organizer. Everything’s visible, available, and pretty too because of the frame. So creative!
Another great way to use wall space is attach containers directly to the wall.
As much as I love an uncluttered counter, some things are best kept there. Using a pretty tray or display piece can help to keep things under control.
Baskets are always a good choice for corralling clutter in a pretty way, but they can take up a lot of valuable shelf and cabinet space, which is why I love this idea. Hanging them on the wall, above the toilet or maybe near a bathtub, is a great way to use space that would probably otherwise go neglected.
Pull out Drawers
Being able to pull drawers out from the dark recesses of a linen closet or cabinet makes the entire space user friendly.
Behind Cabinet Doors
Storing items behind cabinet doors is a great way to keep them accessible while still being hidden. It’s also a great way to declutter the countertop. Ingenious!
My hair dryer, curling iron, and straightener are all throw into a drawer at this moment, which means I spend a few minutes everyday wrestling wires in a never-ending detangling battle. Getting ready takes long enough with that extra headache, which is why I love these ideas.
This behind the cabinet door storage area is so pretty I just might leave my doors open all the time to see it!
Behind the Mirror
I need this in my house along with a bookshelf door that leads to a secret passage.
