Great Storage to Keep our Homes Organized

Great Storage to Keep our Homes Organized

As the end of summer approaches and fall is in the near future we will be spending more time indoors, and this being a busy time of year we need to be as organized as possible. The first step to organization is removing the unnecessary or surplus items we all accumulate over the years. Maybe you took advantage of the lazy days of summer to do some purging and may have even started a plan to be more organized.

Having appropriate storage solutions available is essential. I personally started this task and adopted the idea ‘what if I was moving’ and downsizing. This really made it clear what should go and how I would store what I retained. If you go room by room it makes this a much more tolerable job and once a room is organized you'll want to keep going.

Colourful Storage BasketsThere are a myriad of stores offering many different and creative ways to organize our homes. Anyone can check the internet or walk through a mall and find all types of storage and organizational items. I dropped into my local Wicker Emporium and immediately became inspired.

They have many different baskets, cabinets and furniture pieces suited to all décor styles and even for small spaces. Many of us do not have the space for huge storage cabinets but by using some of the many offerings from Wicker Emporium, you can create a functional and organized home. There are colourful pieces as well as those more natural & simple.

Bench with HooksOne item I fell in love with was the combination bench, hooks and drawers which would be fabulous in a mudroom, or a home with no front entry closet.

While browsing I found some great storage benches which would be lovely in an entrance hall to offer both seating and storage. The green fabric bench with legs offers a lighter look to keep the space feeling open as well as offering a lift up seat for storage. It is a more contemporary look while the dark wood with rattan basket storage offers a more casual look. Both are great options.green fabric bench

It is definitely worth a visit to Wicker Emporium for all your storage needs. They offer a wide range of pieces suited to both large and smaller homes.
