Do you feel like you’re constantly fighting a losing battle against clutter and chaos in your home? Are you tired of not being able to find anything when you need it? Home organization can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. In this blog post, we will discuss 4 great DIY home organization tips that will help you get your house under control!
Organization is most certainly something we all struggle with and it can overwhelm us if we are not careful. Having a DIY spirit and investing some creativity and time in your home, however, can certainly make it better.
DIY organization is all about finding new and creative ways of making your life easier and there are no shortages of ideas out there. Here are four of the very best DIY organization tips for your home to get you started:
Utilize your up space
Vertical space is your number one ally when it comes to organization and the majority of homes completely ignore it as an option. This is great news! Adding shelves, elevating things, and using the space up above will almost certainly be an option for you.
Look around your home and create space by DIY projects that can be done up high. My favorite places to look are in the kitchen and bathroom. The cabinet over your toilet is a great place to install a shelf for extra towels or even storage containers for things like Q-tips, cotton balls, and other small items.
In the kitchen, installing shelves on top of cabinets is an oldie but goody! Not only does this give you more space to store things, but it can also brighten up the space.
Add some life to your storage
If you’re like me, sometimes you just don’t want to look at things that are stored away. This is where adding plants and other decorative items to storage containers comes in handy. It’s a great way to add some personality and style to an otherwise dreary space.
Not only will this make your storage nicer to look at, but it can also help you remember what is inside each container. For example, if I have a container of holiday decorations that I want to put away, adding a little spruce up with some fake greenery will help me remember what’s inside when I go to take it out again next year.
Create revolving options
Another unused option for DIY organizing is those cabinets that are only using a part of their empty space. Adding circular revolving shelves will double and sometimes triple your cabinet space in the kitchen, living room, bathrooms, and bedrooms. That is a ton of extra space!
All you need for this project is a drill, the shelves, and some screws. Measure the space where you want your shelves to go and mark it off. Then use your drill to make pilot holes in each spot that you marked. Screw-in the shelves using the included screws and viola! You now have extra storage space that is both beautiful and functional.
Make a place for everything
Create a space for every single thing in your home. If it has no home, you are not going to be organized. This state of mind is a must for all DIY organizers. Every item that comes into your home should have a spot so get creative!
One of my favorite ways to create a space for everything is by using baskets. Baskets are so versatile and can be used in any room of the house. They are perfect for organizing small items like socks, ties, and scarves. You can also use them to store larger items like blankets and pillows.
The options really are endless when it comes to baskets and they are a great way to add some color and style to your home.
My favorite place to shop? The Dollar Tree! You can even order online and have them shipped right to your door! I know, they just raised their prices, but $1.25 for a stylish bin or basket is still an amazing deal.
Use the oddities in your home
Odd areas are those spots that go to waste. The cute little cubby hole over in the corner of the living room, the nook in the bathroom, and pretty much any other area that goes completely to waste. Look at them in a DIY light and try to figure out how to use that space. You might be surprised at the projects that are waiting there.
Start by taking measurements of the space and see what will fit. If you can’t find anything that is the right size, get creative! Maybe a small bookshelf or even some floating shelves could work in that odd spot. Home improvement stores always have great ideas for these kinds of things.
Another option is to add an extra cabinet or shelf. This is a great way to utilize that space and get your home organized at the same time.
Organization requires that we use our space wisely and that means no wasted space. Always be looking and creating new ways of maximizing your space and organizing your home. It is not nearly as tough as it seems!
