Keeping your home organized doesn’t have to be a chore. With the right focus, and with the right tips, it can actually be easy and painless. Here are some home organizing tips – DIY style!
Color Code + Sort!
Color coding can be particularly handy. If you need to store documents, for instance, you can use color schemes as a way to improve the way you archive physical files. Imagine you had an archive, where you store personal documents (such as family photos) as well as legal documents (passports, birth certificates…) – You can color code your personal documents in blue, and the legal documents in green. This way, it will be much easier to navigate your files and find what you need!
In addition to that, you can also try color sorting. This is particularly handy if you have a rather large wardrobe. For instance, you can store all your black socks in one drawer and keep your other colors in another. You could do the same for dresses, shirts, etc. This could be a very practical tip to navigate a large wardrobe with many items of clothing!
Ordering items alphabetically is quite common in working environments and office spaces. However, homeowners can also benefit from it in many applications. If you collect vinyl records or CDs, it will be much easier to organize the music alphabetically! In addition to that, even book lovers might find it more useful to store their books in alphabetical order, rather than by size, as it’s sometimes customary.
Most of us completely forget that there’s plenty of usable space under our beds. Instead of letting it collect dust, make sure you take advantage of it! There are many under-bed organizers that are quite flat, yet enjoy a rather large capacity, so they can fit under most beds, even if your space is quite narrow. This is a great opportunity to store various small items, which would otherwise be hard to locate or store. Some people love to use under-bed organizers for their shoes or socks, as well as other items that are often kept out of sight, such as cash, personal documents, and more.
Kitchen Overhead Hanging
In most kitchens, pots and pans might take up a lot of space, and often prevent you from taking advantage of the full capacity of your cupboard. To prevent such a situation, another home organizing tip is to try hanging your cooking tools, pots, and pans instead.
In addition to being practical, hanging pans and other items can add a charming rustic feel to your kitchen, giving it a more authentic feel. This is a perfect example of an organizational tip that’s also going to contribute to the great look of your home!
