There are some basic, traditional, organisational methods, like labeling plastic boxes and shoving items into drawers. However, these methods don't work for everyone, and they often simply don't look very nice.
The good news is, there are innovative ways to stay organised that can look seamless, and Innovative Interiors can help.
Colour-coding your clothes
Bedrooms are comfort. Bedrooms are relaxation. Bedrooms are a place of composure. Bedrooms are also a mess. Clothes, shoes, jackets are thrown about like a material disaster zone. But, it doesn't have to be such a clothing catastrophe.
Storage for this room should not only be effective, but it should also be aesthetically pleasing.
Colour-coding your clothes is the best weapon you can use against your battle to stay organised. It's a quick and easy system that lets you find exactly what you're looking for, all while making your wardrobe look beautifully coordinated.
Start with your whites, then follow the order of the colours in the rainbow, ending with your black clothes. For patterned or multi-coloured items, keep them separate in their own special section.
Colour-coding works for drawers and shoes as well. This is a technique that can't easily be disrupted as it is simply so easy to keep your pinks with your pinks and your blacks with your blacks.
You can take colour coding a step further with custom wardrobes. Wardrobes can be tailored made to fit your organisational style and your personal style. Try creating specific units within your wardrobe to separate out your different colours and patterns.
Kids' rooms are always a difficult space to wrangle. Clothes, toys, and a hoard of TV remotes you thought had been lost forever seem to be everywhere. It isn't easy to keep a space tidy when the person occupying that space doesn't understand the meaning of the word.
The most effective storage solution for kids' rooms is to find a system that not only works but also works specifically for them.
Baskets are a great, kid-friendly solution. Throwing toys into a basket makes the dreaded clean-up time go faster, and they're a good height for young children. You can select sizes based on their storage purposes, like toys, shoes, etc., and the range of baskets out there means you're sure to find one that fits your child's style.
The baskets themselves are also easy to store. They can be tucked away under beds, put up on shelves, or lined up in a wardrobe. You can design your child's wardrobe to accommodate the number of baskets you plan on using.
Zoning your living room
The living room has the very difficult task of trying to incorporate many different things. Before trying to figure out the best solution, divide up everything in your living space into zones.
Have one zone for entertainment, like books and board games. Another zone can be for electronics, cords, tablets, and TVs. You could also have a zone for things like extra cushions and throw blankets.
Once you understand your different collection of items, you can start to think about how you want to organise them.
Storage ottomans are great for blankets and pillows or any extra bedding you can't find room for in your linen closet. You can take the colour-coding approach to books for a more conforming look, and electronics can be stored away in drawers (or even baskets if you have any leftover!)
Dedicating a wall space to custom shelving is a simple way to keep everything in one organised place.
Whether you're colour-coding your clothes, getting your child's room under control, or trying to sort out your living space, custom design wardrobes are the best solution to fit your unique needs.
