How to Get Your Whole Home Organized with Open Shelving

Posted by: Storganization Staff Tags: How TO, Home Organization, Wood Shelving

Open shelving is a must-have for all the problem areas of our homes. Not only can it drastically add storage space, but it can also add character and depth to a previously unused wall. Here are some ideas on how to organize and style your shelving for every room in the home.

Incorporating additional shelving in the kitchen is always a good idea, especially if you’re limited on cabinet space. Instead of shoving your pretty china and cute coffee mugs behind closed doors, use open shelving to store and display your favorite dinnerware and larger serving trays and dishes.

It’s safe to say gallery walls in the living room are here to stay, and with so many unique configurations for displaying your favorite photos and decorations, why not consider making yours beautiful and practical? Mix shelving with your artwork to add more charm and function to your space.

Open shelving by the front door is the perfect solution to stopping clutter from taking over the rest of the house, especially if you don’t have a mudroom or entryway closet.

Use wood shelves to store scarves, blankets, and larger purses and bags, and don’t forget to add a hang rod to hold jackets and coats during the colder months.


Laundry Room

If your laundry room is on the smaller side or has limited storage space, extra shelving is the way to go. Store cleaners and detergents up and away from small hands, or use this space to keep seasonal or less-frequently used items.
