Inspiring Ideas for Getting Organized at Home

Organized Living shares a series of photos to get your organizational juices flowing.

Turn an ordinary closet into a dressing room with upgraded touches like inset panel doors, crown molding, and an elegant light fixture.

Wire shelving, though useful, isn't the only option for linen closets. Solid shelving and pull-out baskets are desirable upgrades for all types of storage areas.

Make laundry rooms easy spaces to accomplish all things neat and tidy. Cabinets and wall shelving keep detergent bottles and other supplies out of the way but still within reach, and free up space for folding tables and other work surfaces. Consider adding a hanging rod to air-dry delicate clothing.

Tired of tripping over boots and backpacks when you walk in the door? Give each family member a personalized drop zone with durable storage in the mudroom or garage.

Working out how much space you need for your client's master closet? Professional organizers have plenty of guidelines, including at least 1 inch of linear hanging space per shirt, 2 inches per pair of pants, and 7 to 9 inches per pair of shoes.

A well designed pantry makes even essentials like extra paper towel rolls a pleasure to store. Beyond wire racks, outfit your next walk- or reach-in pantry with solid shelving for small appliances, drawers for table linens and dish towels, and pull-out baskets for dry goods.
