Has anyone noticed tiny houses popping up around town? Do you ever wonder how people can survive to live in a small space with very little room for anything? Despite the smaller area, these people find clever ways to maximize their space while staying extremely organized.
I am not blessed with a strong sense of organization. Like most people, I have a “closet of many things” that has collected over time. I grew up with junk drawers and a multitude of catch-all places in my home. As I’ve grown, I’ve started finding ways to maximize small spaces and get re-organized. Additionally, I have found some impressive products The Hardware Hut offers to help you get your life back in order.
Drawers seem to be everyone’s favorite collection place. Most of my guilt comes from our kitchen utensil drawer, combining all of the bigger utensils together, slipping and sliding everywhere. You can easily help yourself out by looking into drawer trays like our Rev-A-Shelf Utility Tray (GUT-10W-52), used for more than just whisks and slotted spoons. These trays are extremely versatile. Also, you could use them in your bathroom for things like toothbrushes, hairbrushes, and combs.
We offer adjustable silverware trays made to fit the size of your drawer without sliding around. Hafele sells a Trimmable Cutlery Tray Insert (556-53-400) that can be made to fit your drawer properly. There are even trays made for your kitchen spices, cosmetics, and more, which frees up space on counters and in cupboards and pantries.
My favorite and most helpful item became the Tiered Drawer Organizers that Rev-A-Shelf offers (4VDOT-FF), which helps you take advantage of deep drawers. As with many people, these tend to store all kinds of things our bathrooms collect. I love the idea behind these because I’ve always ended up collecting too much in deep drawers and can’t seem to figure out how to organize it and optimize the space.
Add Space with Cabinet Options
If you’re like me, the cabinet under the kitchen sink never seems to stay organized. It’s often tough to reach items way in the back, and smaller objects like sponges and gloves get lost and smashed under other things. Nevertheless, we offer some great ways to help access all of your cabinets and keep them organized.
For lower cabinets like the one under the kitchen sink, Knape and Vogt offer a Wire Under Sink Basket (USB11TM-W) that is easy to install and will help you pull out those pesky cleaning products that get stuck in the back with ease. We have a wide variety of different sized, pull out base organizers for cabinets, which make life easier, on our Base Organizers and Pull Out Baskets page.
For cabinet doors, we offer great door-mounted storage options, like the Rev-A-Shelf Wood Wall Door Mount Spice Rack (4SR-15) and the Wide Sink Base Door Storage (4SBSU-15), which make quite a bit of room once installed. You could even combine the base organizer with the door mounted storage to optimize space and functionality.
While corner cabinets contain awkward space and provide limited access, we have a few solutions. You can access the unused or unreachable space with our Lazy Susans. We have some for simple corner cabinets like the Rev-A-Shelf (6012-18-11-52) Full Circle Lazy Susan 2-Shelf Set, and we carry a variety of options for pesky blind corners such as the Salice Vibo Fly Moon Corner Pullout 2-Shelf Set (QFLY40DXM20MVCH), which has two independently moving shelves.
Coming from someone who is not very tall, upper cabinets tend to be a struggle. Rev-A-Shelf Wide Pull-Down Shelving System (5PD-24CRN) is a great piece to add to any upper cabinet that you or your loved ones struggle to reach.
