Creating order in your home has never looked so good

Cf 59

Nothing is more frustrating and time-consuming than rummaging through drawers, cabinets or closets trying to find that one item you need (and you know is in there!). This goes for every room in the house; from the kitchen, bathroom and the laundry room to the bedroom closet, home office and even the garage. 

All it takes to minimize the wild goose chase is a little organization. Luckily, there is an abundance of clever, attractive accessories on the market to help you tame the clutter, organize your collections and keep your work flow flowing.

Here are a few of our favorite accessories that make life easier in every room of your house.

In the bedroom closet:

Belt racks, tie racks and slanted and flat shoe shelves help keep accessories tidy and visible.  And a jewelry drawer provides a place to keep all your baubles tucked away, but at the ready. 

In the home office:

In the home office, file drawers tucked away into an attractive credenza provide paperwork organization at your fingertips. Binning strips make it easy to divide drawers into custom compartments to organize everything from paper clips and pushpins to post-it notes and extra staples. Additional accessories like pencil trays,  keyboard trays and power/data centers keep clutter to a minimum and provide you with a clean, calm work space. 

In the pantry:

In the kitchen, clear lucite tray dividers above, and drawers below, provide easy access and high visibility for kitchen items. Drawer dividers and silverware trays help keep utensils and accessories neat, tidy and accessible. A counter- or table-top Lazy Susan can attractively keep everyday items like salt and pepper shakers, napkin holders and popular condiments at the ready. 

In the laundry room:

To keep your laundry room organized, install a fold-away drying rack, sturdy hanging rod or slide-out valet rod to assist with clothing management. Install a drop-down ironing board hidden tidily behind a cabinet door. Add a broom hook to keep your sweeper off the floor and multiple hooks for bags, dog leashes, hats or other necessities.

Keeping your home attractively organized is a cinch with these practical accessories. Invest in a few and before you know it, you’ll have all those whosits and whatsits under control.
