Is your room feeling crowded or busy? Have you recently moved away for college or into a new home and don’t know where to place things? Your room might just need some TLC and a little storage face-lift. Today we will be sharing some of our favorite ways to reach that designer showroom feel right at home with simple storage options. First we will share a few inspiration photos and then some pieces that can help you pull it off at home!
Having clutter on your shelves and tabletops is always an eye-sore, so tidying up and throwing out old or unused items is a good place to start. Some things to think about are old magazines, old bills, unused jewelry, makeup, and old clothes.
Trying out some new shelf styling designs can revamp a room almost instantly. When adding new pieces and even when mixing new with old, try to style shelf décor with various heights on each shelf. This will help to keep the shelf balanced and interesting.
After tidying up and throwing things out, keeping things clean sounds easy right?! We all know we have that one catch off spot in our home that is a task to keep clean. A simple fix to keeping valuables while at the same time, keep things nice and tidy, is to invest in storage bins and baskets. Staying organized is a huge part of keeping your home clean and almost every room can be accompanied by a basket to toss blankets, pillows, or toys into. Keeping things off of the floor will help your space feel more like a showroom.
We love these pieces that can be used in various rooms of the house. They prove how easy it can be to stay organized and stylish in your home.
Hall trees are a great use of space in a large entry hall or mudroom and are also convenient because you can grab and go. If you don’t have a mudroom or a large entry hall, try adding in a standing or wall hanging coat rack and maybe a storage bench. Like the hall tree, storage benches are great because they have multiple functions, like supplying a seating area and storage space underneath. If you live somewhere where it rains or snows a lot, it’s nice having one of these pieces where you walk in to place wet or dirty shoes and clothes.
Having a kitchen or bar cart in your home will save more space for cabinet and countertop use. You can place bar carts almost anywhere in the home such as an office, dining room, or bedroom; but remember to play with bar cart styling. Again keeping countertops and tables cleared off will create the idea of a clean and sophisticated space.
Serving trays are another simple way you can add definition to a room with little effort. Trays can be used on kitchen counters, dining tables, coffee tables, end tables, ottomans, used for breakfast in bed, bar cart styling, and much more. All of these organization tips will really pull together to show you that you can have that showroom feel right at home. It just takes some TLC and a leap of faith to rearrange your most loved spaces sometimes.
