Storage and Organisation

Organising your home (and in particular your wardrobe) with the right storage solutions and products can make life infinitely easier (and tidier), and it needn't be the overwhelming and time-consuming task you thought it was. Even if your wardrobe or chest of drawers doesn't have built-in compartments, storage baskets, boxes, hooks and shelving are just as effective for ensuring everything has its place. Here are some clever ideas for organising your wardrobe and other storage solutions — and ways to save time, money and space doing it.

Use baskets, storage boxes and bins to store small accessories


If you have plenty of shelves but no built-in drawers, why not create your own storage by placing hats, scarves, belts and purses into storage boxes? Wardrobe organisers and small storage products come in a variety of sizes and materials — including wicker, metal, wire, plastic and fabric — so they can even add some personality and decor to your wardrobe or bedroom.

Save space by opting for hanging organisers


When wardrobe space is limited, going vertical with hanging organisers or hooks is a space-efficient solution. Shoe storage can be tricky, however hanging shoe racks with square compartments are popular and affordable ways to group your shoes, while organisers with large compartments work well for jumpers and tops. If you're lucky enough to have a walk-in wardrobe, save room on your clothes rail by adding door and coat hooks to store bulky coats or bags. Finally, multi-tier hangers are inexpensive storage and organisation products for trousers, jeans and ties.

Add drawer dividers for easy organising


Avoid jumbled, cluttered drawers by using plastic or metal dividers to compartmentalise space. By having specific sections for smaller bits such as underwear and socks or even larger items like shoes and handbags, you might just save yourself time while you’re getting dressed in the morning.

Don't forget underbed storage


If your wardrobe space just isn't enough, there is a great storage space under the bed. Some convenient storage products, such as large underbed storage boxes, even include wheels to make them easy to move in and out. They can be an ideal way to store bulky seasonal items, including wooly jumpers, coats, boots and extra blankets.

Don’t forget storage and organisation solutions for the rest of your home


While the majority of your storage-focus may go on your wardrobe and bedroom, don’t forget the rest of the home – the right storage boxes, shelving and decorative storage around the house will help you keep things tidy and stylish. Garden storage products will help you to maintain your outdoor space – storage for tools, garden furniture that needs to be kept dry and all the other bits and bobs that accumulate when you have a garden, terrace or courtyard. Then there’s all the kitchen storage products for a neat and organised cooking space, office storage for a decluttered and zen-like working space and storage furniture and decorative storage for all areas of the house.
