Closet organizers don’t have to be used just for clothing. If you find yourself struggling with storage space all over your home, a closet organizer may be the solution. There are a number of ways they can make storage easier for you. So, let’s take a look at 6 uses for your new closet organizer that can save you space elsewhere in your home.
If you have a lot of files and documents to keep track of, a closet organizer is a great place for them. Deep drawers can be fitted with file bars, or you can use shelving to store existing file boxes.
If your home desk has a filing cabinet built into it, you may find that it gets overfull and hard to look through. Take some time to go through the contents and remove anything you’re not likely to need. Shred unneeded documents and archive anything you don’t foresee needing anytime soon. Then, put your little archive of old documents into a filing space in your closet organizer.
Most people who own books already have a bookshelf in their home. However, if you enjoy buying new books (whether you read them all or not) your bookshelf will eventually fill up. Use some of the shelving on a closet organizer to retire the books that you don’t care for or that don’t look very nice. You’ll be so excited to see your bookshelf with some more space on it!
If you’re like most families, you probably have a huge stash of photos. Some may be from your own family, while many may have been passed down from parents and grandparents. These priceless relics should be stored properly, or they can fade or get damaged. Store photos in albums or photo boxes and stack or line them neatly on the shelves of your storage organizer.
If you enjoy board games or card games, you probably have one of those familiar game stashes somewhere in your home. Many of us do. If you’re like most people, you struggle to find a place for them that works nicely. Free up some actual closet space and move them into a storage area with a wooden organizer. Here, they can be easily looked through and won’t crowd the space intended for storing clothes.
Bedding is everyone’s worst nightmare when it comes to storage. I know I’m not the only one who’s spent years struggling to fit a folded comforter into the top of a linen closet without it falling or preventing the door from sliding closed. If you, too, struggle with storing bedding, a closet organizer is a great solution. With more space, better-fitted shelving alcoves, and easier access, storing bedding in a wooden organizer is much easier.
Finally, we can’t leave out utilities. What exactly do we mean by that? Well, how about a stool? Some people opt for foldable step stools, but not everyone does. If you have an old fashioned plastic or wooden stool that prioritizes stability over space efficiency, a closet organizer is a great place to store it. Simple fit it neatly into one of the smaller, vertical, shelf cubbies and it will no longer get in your way.
