7 Space Saving Tips

Find new ways to organize your space!

When thinking of cleaning your house, do you ever wish you could just start over? I mean, buy a new house start over? Or is that just me? Even though, every time I have searched for a new apartment or bought a home, I’ve always had the best intentions of thinking of every little detail I need, I somehow still end up needing more room.

Well, I might not be able to convince you that you need a new house, but I can show you some clever tricks to find and create extra space in your home.

First, go vertical. I know I have said this again and again, but it’s true! Adding a second layer of space to any unused area instantly adds additional organization. Our 2-tiered Lazy Susans are perfect for kitchens to organize spices, cans, pantry items or to put in the fridge if there is room!

So, hear me out on this one: I am channeling my inner Kardashian here. If you follow these icons on social media, you know that organization is key in their homes. During their social media show-and-tells, we learned a fascinating organizational hack: smaller bins inside larger bins. One way to put this into practice is with cubby bins. I have these at home to hold all of my kid’s coloring supplies. Inside the bin, I use smaller lidded bins to keep all the crayons, markers, and writing utensils together. Try adding labels to each of the small boxes to elevate your storage game even more. Now, everything is in one place! This method is also great for kids’ toys, making clean up easier when you know exactly where everything should go!

mDesign’s storage caddies and totes do the trick for all those small items that have no home. Clean off those messy counters, tables and drawers and take advantage of the divided compartments in these totes – everything has its place. You can use them to store craft supplies, bathroom essentials, cleaning supplies, and more. They have an easy-carry handle so you can take them from room to room, and they come in a variety of sizes to match any needs!

When organizing your kitchen, we all know to store items near where they’ll be used most, like plates and dishes above the dishwasher, spices near the stove, etc. But have you ever wished that you could squeeze a bit more space out of your cabinets? By adding a storage shelf you create an extra tier to truly maximize the vertical space. You can also create an extra layer of space under a shelf with these hanging baskets that slip onto most cabinet shelves to hold extra mugs, snack bags, even food! The great part is the baskets slide out for easy access to all contents.

Sometimes you must think outside the box - or cabinet in this instance. Wall mounted magazine holders make an excellent dry storage organizer that easily mounts to the side of your cabinet. You can put in potatoes or onions and have them handy for the next time you need them! Or if you don’t want your food out in the open, store cookbooks for easy access.

When you think of adding extra space to your home, don’t forget the backs of doors. This space is usually untouched but can store lots of essentials. In the kitchen, use this wall mount spice rack on the inside of your pantry door. In your closet or bedroom, add an over door shoe rack to keep your most worn shoes ready to grab-and-go. On the entryway door, hang this storage rack with hooks for coats, scarves, and purses. To utilize more space under your sink, include a wall mount bag holder to keep all those reusable bags in their place.

Adding functional items that not only look good but hide extra storage are fundamentals for an organized home. When everything has a place, it’s easy to put things back where they belong. Try adding a storage side table to your living room or bedroom. You can store blankets, magazines, books, tablets, and lots of other goodies on the bottom while keeping the clutter off your floor.
