Tired of looking at a disorganized bookshelf? First, remove everything from the shelf. Then try these ideas to make it look neat and organized again:
- Create little vignettes by grouping books and objects together. Remember that books can be stacked horizontally as well as vertically.
- Empty space is important. If one shelf is full, create a spot near it that has more breathing room. This will make things appear less cluttered.
- You don’t have to organize all your books by color, but try to do some groupings where the book hues match. It will give an overall look of organization.
The bathroom. This is one of those rooms where items tend to congregate on countertops and shower ledges, but good storage options can eliminate that clutter.
- Give each member of the family a caddy for their products. It can be pulled out when they are in the bathroom, and tucked back into the cabinets when they leave.
- Drawer dividers will keep products from moving around as you open and close the drawer (keeping your makeup in the same place all the time).
- Using a hanging shower caddy not only gets products off the shower ledge, but it prevents mildew buildup at the bottles’ bases.
