In this handy guide, we’ve outlined how to organize your home and start 2018 on the right foot! January 14th is Organize Your Home Day, and it’s the perfect time to get a jumpstart on your spring cleaning. At Seville Classics, we firmly believe in expandable and customizable storage solutions. With these home organizing ideas, you can make the most of your available space, and feel less cluttered at the same time.

Downsize for Good

First, we recommend going through your closets, pantry, and garage, pulling everything off the shelves and seeing what you can throw out. This is a perfect activity for after the holidays, when you’ve accumulated more stuff and need to consolidate. As a general rule, for every new box that you add to your home, you should try to donate two bags to a local charity. Downsizing feels cathartic, like you’re shedding a layer and creating more breathing room.

Transform Your Storage

Once you’ve consolidated your things, it’s time to makeover your storage areas. For example, you can place new wallpaper in your pantry, clean up your shelves, and stick a cleaning schedule on your fridge so that the house stays spotless. Then, you can start labeling every storage container and cardboard box, so that it’s easy to locate anything in the house.

Add Tiers to Your Shelves

After cleaning and organizing your home, you can maximize vertical storage space with the Expandable Kitchen Cabinet Shelf Organizer. This heavy-duty iron shelf can expand from 15.75” to 30” wide, so it fits a wide variety of cabinets. It’s the perfect solution for your plates, bowls, and cups, taking advantage of your existing space, without adding clutter.

Invest in Expandable Solutions

Meanwhile, if you’re looking to boost storage space under the sink, the Expandable Sink Shelf with Mesh Panels can help you stay organized. With snap-on mesh panels that fit around existing drain pipes, and an expandable base that ranges from 18” to 30” wide, this unit works wonders under almost any sink.

Dedicate a Space for Your Shoes

Expandable storage is ideal for cabinets, but it also makes sense in the closet, where shoes can quickly pile up. With the 3-Tier Expandable Shoe Rack, you can stash shoes on the epoxy-coated steel poles and not worry about them slipping. When fully extended at 46.6” wide, you can store up to 21 pairs of shoes comfortably. Assembly is easy, and the steel frame is designed to last.
