Closet Organization Made Easy

July 15th, 2013 | Posted by MattY in Home Furniture - (0 Comments)

Organizing your home can be a stressful endeavor. The best way to orchestrate this organization effort is by breaking it down room by room. Plan out the organization for each room and then spread them out over the summer. Taking on an entire home’s organization in one weekend can become too big of a project very quickly. A great place to start is your bedroom.

Closet organization has been a hot topic in recent years and there are solutions that range from do-it-yourself hangers and shoe racks to professionally designed and custom-built closets. Where your closet organizing options fall in this spectrum is largely up to your budget. A great compromise is using closet storage units that can be fitted to any closet and don’t involve and home renovations to install. Sauder Furniture‘s Closet In A Box kit is an easy and effective way to start your organization efforts. These pieces will fit into most standard-sized closets and in addition to looking great, they feature cabinets, drawers, racks and multiple adjustable rods for hanging clothing.

The thing to remember when organizing a closet are that anything you do to organize items needs to be easy and repeatable. Unless you like spending ten minutes sorting shoes and placing them back in a nicely made pile, something like a rack or shelf that gives you easy access to all of your shoes is a much better solution.

Whether you are looking to make a light and airy design to combat the summer heat, create simple elegance, or simply update some of your home furnishings, summer is a great time to decorate with a white theme. White furniture can be used in many ways to change the feel of a room. Here are a few of One Way Furniture’s favorite monochromatic decorating tips for this season!

Use white to soften and lighten dark and bold color themes. White furniture can be used to brighten up a room that features a predominately dark color palate. Adding white sofas or chairs will soften to create large textile visuals in the space will also help to soften a room that feels edgy.

Go all out! Creating a space that is composed of entirely white is a classic décor style that can be applied to any decorating theme, especially classical and modern themes. By using only white in a decorating theme, it gives the room an artistic feel, with only the edges and details of objects distinguishable from the walls. Coordinated color accents can also be used to give the room patterns, focal points and intrigue.

White accents for simple elegance. Utilizing white trim, cabinets, tables or other stationary pieces like these Sauder furniture pieces at One Way Furniture, can give a room a stately and elegant feel, especially when paired with a solid color on the walls and major furniture pieces.

Dining Room FurnitureThe Turino Dining set is the perfect centerpiece for a summer dining area. This set features modern styling of a rustic, hand-made look and comes in a grey oak stain finish.

The large table for this set provides ample surface area for six diners that can be comfortably seated on the four padded chairs and one padded bench that is large enough for two people.

A popular trend in country-styled dining areas is to mix and match seating options with various designs and styles and coordinate them by matching upholstery or colors. This collection of dining room furniture is an ideal way to easily incorporate this trend into your home.

This set will look perfect with a similarly rustic-themed room or a modern space full of fun, antique accents. To keep your vintage decor from becoming dull and looking too worn-out, makes sure to add bright colors, florals and plants, and patterns through textile updates such as rugs, table clothes and window dressings.

Rustic rooms can often become cluttered with large collections of small pieces. Instead, keep your space feeling open and airy.  Utilize large statement pieces to create the desired feel of the room and leave the rest up to the imagination. For storing antique collections, try using a curio cabinet to reduce clutter and display your collection with visibility and lighting.

Sauder FurnitureWhile you probably don’t have much of a need to store vast hordes of treasure or safeguard a priceless collection of silver dining pieces, chests still make excellent additions to home decorating.

Traditionally, chests have been used to safely store valuable items; utilizing heavy wood frames and strong locks. Today, chests with details like that are sought after for their aesthetic appeal more than their security features. With a more visual role in mind, uses for chests have become more creative and are often featured as great accent pieces to a seating or bedroom area.

In a living room, chests, such as the pictured Shoal Creek Storage Chest from Sauder furniture, make for excellent replacements for traditional coffee tables. Their low profile often creates an ideal height for use as a coffee table and their design makes them unique and interesting. Chests also work great as end tables if used next to large pieces of furniture. These living room tables are also practical as places for extra pillow, blanket, or DVD storage.

Another traditional use of chests is as a storage space at the foot of a bed. Similar to a seating area, you can also use a chest as a nightstand or accent table near your bed depending on the height. Make sure to add some great decorations to the top of them!

Creative and space saving designs for jewelry armoires are a great twist on a storage staple. Now, jewelry armoires are being designed to fit any space, to serve multiple purposes, and match the décor of any room or home. Here are three of our favorite creative pieces:

First, the Powell Walnut Cheval Jewelry Wardrobe with Mirrored Front outwardly appears to be a streamlined floor mirror with a rich walnut finish. Upon further inspection, the front of this secretive storage piece swings open to reveal a large area for your entire jewelry collection. We love the practicality of this elegant mirror and its clever design.

Next, the Holly & Martin Stella Photo Display Wall Mount Jewelry Armoire is a smaller piece, measuring 12” by 22”. As a wall-mounted unit, it is perfect for freeing up space in any room. At first glance, it looks like a handsome photo frame that can hold up to three 5”x7” photos. Inside, six cubby holes and two earring racks offer a great amount of storage.

Our last selection combines features from both of our previous picks. The Proman Mahogany Venice Bellisimo Wall Mount Jewelry Armoire is a wall-mounted piece that features both a mirrored front, and space for six photographs alongside the mirror.

End tables and accent tables are the perfect addition to any living room or dining room furniture set. These small surfaces are a great way to tie seating areas together and provide space to showcase decorative items, incorporate subtle lighting through lamps and providing functional surfaces for storage.

In addition to placing end tables between chairs or couches in a living room space, they can be creatively used in any room of the house.  Here’s a short list of easy end table solutions:

  • Extra surface area for appliances in the kitchen
  • Nightstands next to a bed
  • Break up a long hallway with an accent table full of interesting decorations
  • Arrange two or three together for a unique coffee table replacement
  • Place over an extension cord or mobile device chargers for a more decorative charging station solution

Accent tables are also great for creating a rhythm to a room and continuity in a space. By using identical tables that stand out because of their distinctive design, eyes in the space will follow them around the room and tie it all together.

Make sure to take advantage of our great sales going on, including our Clearance Sale! Buy any 2 items and get the 3rd at 25% off, plus additional saving depending on order size. This is a great way to fill up your space with elegant end tables from brands like Sauder furniture.

Patio Furniture SetsDeck and patio season is finally here! Summer is the perfect time to enjoy dining outdoors, barbecue, pool parties, and relaxing afternoons in the sun. Make sure you get the most out of your deck or patio this summer with beautiful and comfortable patio furniture sets from One Way Furniture.

A perennial favorite of our patio patrons is our teak outdoor furniture collection. Teak is an excellent option for patio and deck furniture because of its appealing aesthetic and natural durability. Found mainly in South and Southeast Asia, the natural oils in teak give this fantastic wood a natural resistance to water and pests such as termites.

Our outdoor teak furniture collection features a large variety of pieces for any outdoor space. If you’re planning on entertaining guests outside this summer, a striking and durable outdoor table and chair set is just as important as quality dining room furniture. No matter how big or small your crowd is, the Hamburg Nine-piece Teak Dining Set pictured here will be the perfect fit. This rectangular dining centerpiece is expandable so its size can adjust to accommodate a romantic dinner party of two, or the easy-to-store folding arm chairs can be brought out and the table expanded to fit nine people for a fun summer barbecue!

 

 

Curio CabinetsEverybody has a collection of some sort. If left unattended, these vast stockpiles of stuff will become not much more than that: piles of stuff. If you’ve worked hard on amassing a collection worthy of admiration, then you are going to need a place to display it!

Curio cabinets are a perfect solution for this. There are a wide variety of shapes, sizes and materials that are combined to stunningly showcase your hard work and dedication. Curio cabinets are cabinets with walls and doors made out of glass that allow people to look from multiple directions at decorative or valuable pieces inside. These capital cabinets create the feeling of admiring priceless pieces of artwork at a museum by properly illuminating and displaying the items inside.

In most homes, they work superbly to store items vertically, thus alleviating the need for table top space and piles. Curio Cabinets can be used for anything from DVD storage to crystal collections or children’s artwork. Anything that you feel like displaying will become a center of attention in your home.

The curio cabinet featured here is a half round style. Other options include rectangular or full circle cabinets. The shape and size depend entirely on the room or space in which you have for the curio cabinet.
