Hey friend! I am over-the-moon excited for today’s post! A rep from Wayfair reached out to me this month and asked if I would be interested in joining the “Clever Closet Makeover” campaign to work with them on a post about closet organization and creative storage solutions.
If you’ve been around long, you’ve probably figured out that I love Wayfair! All of our dining room chairs came from Wayfair (you can check them out here) as well as the antique brass vanity light in our guest bathroom.
Creative Storage Solutions
So I jumped at the opportunity to be featured on their site! The timing was perfect with the start of the new year and wanting to declutter and get organized. I don’t know about you but all of our closets could use some help!
I love the huge variety Wayfair offers for storage solutions on any budget. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to get those unruly spaces whipped into shape!
So let’s take a look at some different ways to straighten out those closets and find creative storage solutions for other areas, as well!
One way to make the most of your closet space is to install a closet system or shelving unit. There are so many different units available to fit any space. If you’re on a budget, choosing a wire shelf system will be affordable and easy to install.
You may decide you would prefer one with solid shelves and some drawers to store things like socks, scarves and other necessities.
There are systems for any size closet you have whether it’s the walk-in closet in your master bedroom or the small closet in your nursery. You can go as simple or as elaborate as you prefer!
The best thing about closet systems is that you’re able to adjust them to fit your needs. Maybe you just hang shirts and pants and can have them stacked on top of one another. Or maybe you wear more dresses and need a longer space for them to hang. You can adjust the system to your specific desire.
Shoe Storage Racks
Anyone else go crazy when they see ALL THE SHOES piled by the door or scattered throughout the house? There’s an easy solution! Shoe storage racks are perfect for keeping shoes out of the way. And they come in a range of sizes and styles. If you’re short on space you can choose one that fits in the bottom of your closet underneath your clothes.
You can also choose a compact sectioned bin that fits under your bed. This works especially well if you have different shoes you wear for different seasons.
You may have a designated space like a mudroom where you hang coats, backpacks, etc. In this case, you could purchase a stylish rack for your family to store their shoes when they walk in the door.
Storage bins are so convenient and come in many different forms to fit your everyday needs!
If you’re short on space you can use plastic tubs to store your seasonal clothes in and keep them under your bed.
Maybe you need something to keep extra towels and toiletries in for your guest bathroom. Wicker baskets easily accessed on a shelf are a great solution to this.
Large baskets are great for storing pillows and blankets and look beautiful next to your couch or loveseat or tucked under a decorative table.
Cube storage shelves with cloth baskets are perfect for kids’ bedrooms and playrooms to hide the toys and keep games neat and organized.
Last year we gave our laundry room a makeover so it was more user-friendly. We had to maximize each area because it’s a small room that you enter directly from the garage. That meant coming up with creative storage solutions!
We stacked the washer and dryer for maximum space and kept the center cabinet to store our detergent, dryer balls, and other laundry needs.
My husband built a folding table and we purchased a drying rack to fit underneath to hang pants. We can use the tabletop to store laundry baskets when they’re not in use and we installed a hanging bar equipped with hangers for drying our shirts.
If you don’t have a ton of space you can install a pull-down drying rack that attaches to the door.
In our previous home, the laundry room was in the basement and we had tons more space. We kept a laundry sorter which is so convenient when separating towels from clothes and keeping your darks and lights from mixing!
Hampers are also a must to keep dirty clothes in their place!
I had a blast working with Wayfair on their “Clever Closet Makeover” campaign. They make it so easy to come up with creative storage solutions for all needs and budgets. If this is an area you’ve been struggling in, I hope you’ve found some helpful ideas in this post. Be sure to visit Wayfair for the latest in closet storage solutions and go get organized!
