Tips: Home Organization for 2018

We’re beginning a fresh new year, which makes it the perfect time to tackle home organization!  As a Philadelphia interior designer, we’ve got tips to help you ditch the clutter and start off 2018 on the right foot.  Take it one room at at time and you’ll feel less overwhelmed!

Living Rooms

Living rooms are a hub for most of us, so it makes sense that we accumulate stuff here.  Books, papers, and blankets seem to multiply in the blink of an eye.  Luckily, smart storage options offer organization and order while remaining stylish.  Built ins are perfect for displaying art and collectibles, while closed cabinetry at the bottom makes it easy to tuck seldom-used items away.  Storage ottomans also double as seating.  A coffee table with room for remotes, throws, and extra pillows make straightening up a breeze!

Bathrooms also see a lot of use and easily become disorganized.  Custom vanities can be tailored directly to your needs, like the design we created for a Main Line client’s master bath renovation.  In any bathroom, a built in or bookcase makes a great organization solution and can double as a beautiful linen closet.  Baskets and boxes are ideal for hand towels and washcloths.  Hide extra toiletries and cleaning supplies in a cabinet!

Your bedroom is your sanctuary, so you want it to have an uncluttered, relaxed vibe.  Furniture that is both functional and beautiful maintains that feeling of serenity.  Dressers and chests keep clothing out of sight and provide a place for jewelry boxes and valet trays.  Nightstands offer open and closed storage perfect for lamps, books, and glasses.  Most of all, a well-designed closet like this system from Elfa provides organization for your clothing, shoes, and accessories at your fingertips!
