Lasting organization

Easy organization solutions for every home

To keep bathroom and kitchen cabinetry tidy and accessible, this professional organizer uses various sizes of turntables and drawer organizers.

In larger rooms like the kitchen, break the re-organizing project into bite-sized pieces—like one or two drawers.

Shelving, drawers and baskets combine to provide a highly functional storage system in this walk-in pantry.

This handsome mudroom design provides lots of options including a convenient built-in bench for putting on footwear.

Consider creating a "household landing zone" at the door your family uses most often, recommends professional organizer Julie Riber. You might want to include organization ideas like hooks for backpacks and purses, a small shelf for keys and phones, a few file holders for school papers, the grocery list, etc., and a tray or bin to temporarily house shoes.

An abundance of light makes it easier to tackle almost any organization project, as evidenced by this massive walk-in closet.

To utilize vertical space in a closet, some professional organizers like to use hanging systems for belts, scarves, jewelry, hats and ties.

Ideal for storing trays, serving platters and barware, or setting up for buffets, this multifunctional storage space encourages entertaining.

Simple things like an organized bulletin board, a clean work space and a desk that's not cluttered with papers help to improve productivity.

A spacious desk really lets you get down to business at home, but make sure that paperwork doesn't clutter up the whole surface.
