If you're in the market for a low cost but effective way to organize your closet then you don't have to deal with anymore. Wire closet organization products are an easy answer and a wire closet storage system is also a great choice if you don't plan to live in your current location for a long period of time. They are super for apartments and college dorms. The pieces can also be easily reconfigured and reassembled without harming them. As a matter of fact, a wire closet storage system is the least costly custom closet organizing option you can buy.
Even though these systems are not costly at all there are still very long lasting and are able to store heavy books and other items with very little difficulty. Just be sure to check the weight limits as some of the products sold have load limits that can end up failing under the weight. In addition you also want to consider the exact items you will store, for example when storing sweaters you will want to place something between the wire and the sweaters to avoid the lines they create as well as snags.
The main purpose of the wire storage kits is to help you maximize the space you have available for storage. Buying actual kits as opposed to individual components will save you even more. Many of these kits also have racks that you can install and adjust as well as add sliding drawers. This is much more affordable than regular wooden drawers. If you opt for the type with drawers and you intend to use them for small things like socks or even thong undies then you need to get the type that have the wires close together to prevent the items from slipping through them.
As far as the actual systems go, there are basically two types of storage systems. The first type is the kind that attaches a track to the wall and you then place the wire shelves or baskets at different locations on the track. These are very easy to adjust and customize for anyone. This type of system also reduces the amount of cutting and drilling that one must do.
The second style of wire closet storage kit actually attaches each portion of the system to the wall which is done with anchors, screws, clips, and braces. These accessories will be available at the same locations as the systems themselves.
Wire closet storage systems will help you to organize all of your clutter and make it seem as if you have a lot more room. There is no need to wait or put this off, get organized now by investing in one of these systems.
It is really easy for a kitchen to get disorganized and if we let it go to far it can become a huge job to put together. Read on for a few tips that can help you put things back together and keep your kitchen orderly.
The first thing that you should do is to get a picture in your mind for what should be there and what does not belong so that you can organize what should be there and get rid of what shouldn't be.
Remove everything that you have in your cabinets and clean them. Make sure that when you put everything back into the cabinets in specific categories like plates, bowls, glasses, cups, etc. Not only does this make it easier to find everything but it will help you get around easier in the kitchen.
I know everyone has a junk drawer but it doesn't have to be a huge mess. There is always stuff in that drawer that doesn't need to be there and you need to throw it out. Get small organizational dividers or baskets that you can place miscellaneous items in so that they aren't just floundering around in the drawer.
Another area that is prone to clutter is the pantry. It never ceases to amaze me what you will find in some pantries, including my own. Sometimes we have multiple items of the same condiment just because we have gone to the store and bought more only to find that we already had two unopened jars that we didn't know were there. Separate your shelves into categories so that you have canned goods on one, things like cereal and pasta on another, etc. I also have baskets in my pantry to keep things like gravy mixes, chili mix and so on.
Keep your refrigerator cleaned out on a regular basis. The easiest way to do this is to just clean it out every time you go grocery shopping. If you do it any less often not only are you going to have a fridge full of clutter but you are also going to find things you can't even identify. Make sure you throw the old stuff out and wipe the shelves down to prevent bacteria from forming.
If you don't have a spice rack get one. I love to cook and nothing is more aggravating than looking all over for spices when you are trying to cook. Be sure to keep all of the spices you use on a regular basis at the front of the rack and be sure that everything is labeled clearly.
Keep your counter tops clear of clutter and clean them after every time you cook or use them to prepare anything. If you have items that you don't use on a regular basis find another place to keep them.
If you look around you will find all sorts of things that you can buy to help you organize your kitchen. There are online stores that not only offer everything you could need for your kitchen, but also items that will help you keep it clutter free.
You know, I've installed plenty of wall shelves in my time. For one reason or another, the convenience of having more space to place things in a room in an orderly fashion will bring about a feeling of peaceful bliss. Your surroundings will be so well organized that you will want to jump up for joy!
What I am going to do here is give you examples of what people I know have done with wall shelf to take advantage of limited space. I'm hoping this will give you some ideas of the useful intentions of wall shelving.
My first example is what my friend Tony did with wall shelf in his living room. Tony and his wife Jennifer own a home in upstate New York. This three bedroom, two and one half bath ranch home has a living room with a fireplace in the middle of the wall on the far end of the room. Tony and Jennifer have been collecting limited edition crystal figurines for the last 15 years.
At first, when the collection was small, they displayed them on the coffee table and end tables in their living room. As time went on and the collection got larger and larger, these beautiful crystals needed a place dedicated to this collection.
With no room for a large curio cabinet, Tony had an idea. He took one look at the wall space above the fireplace and right away he thought of wall shelves.
After searching all over online, Tony and Jennifer decided to go with a floating glass shelf system called the "Wave." This curved glass comes in sections 24 inches wide by 8 inches deep. With these wavy glass shelves you can assemble them in a wave for as wide as you want to go by adding another 24 inch shelf side by side.
Tony and Jennifer decided to go with two six foot long shelves above the fireplace. The shelves were about 18 inches above each other. They were able to display their entire collection of crystal figurines and the living room looked spectacular.
My other friends John and Gina turned their family room into their entertainment room. On one wall they had a 60 inch flat panel TV. Below the TV was a solid oak wall mount shelf open cabinet. The cabinet itself had two shelves to accommodate their CD and DVD collection.
Sitting on top of this shelving cabinet was the receiver/amplifier for their home theater along with the subwoofer of the audio system. In all four corners of the room are Architectural Elements corner wall shelves of honey oak. These corner wall shelves are about 2/3 of the way up the wall corners with the other speakers of the home theater system sitting on them. When I watched a movie with them, it was like being in a movie theater.
My last example for making more room with wall shelves is over at the home of my neighbor down the street. This is the home of Bruce and Maurine. They have a recreation room in their basement. On one side of the room is a pool table. On the other side of the room is a ping pong table.
Along with their two children, Shauna 12 years old and Michael 14 years old, Bruce and Maurine are very much into sports. Shauna is on the figure skating team at the local rink. Michael plays on the local little league baseball team in the summer and on the hockey team at the local rink during the winter. Both Bruce and Maurine are on separate bowling leagues.
To say the least, over the past few years, trophies have accumulated in their home. It got to the point that there was no place designated to display all their trophies.
Maurine had an idea. There was a lot of open wall space in the basement recreation room. Why not put up a large shelf on each wall? So after searching online for a little while, Maurine found the perfect solution to their trophy displaying problem.
What Maurine did was to install the Vertigo 4 piece shelf set in Java which is a dark coffee colored wood. This 4 piece set added enough room to all four walls of the recreation room to more than adequately supply space for the entire family's trophy collection.
Wall shelf not only provides more space to display your prized possessions, you will also enjoy a form of wall furniture that provides a comfortable warm feeling inside. Take a look at all the artful styles of wall shelves and you are sure to find a style that will make you feel good inside.
