We all need functional pieces to control the clutter that inevitably accumulates at home. And when you find something that’s functional as well as pleasing to the eye, that’s a bonus. These are some very unique storage options that would serve the purpose and still look great in any room.
This wall organizer from Pottery Barn with 25 individual cubbies could be used to store or display useful or decorative items. Each of the 5” square cubbies is numbered, a great detail.
The distressed finish makes this new piece look like it has a lot of history. You could change the look of this cubby in a hundred different ways.
Here’s a simple option for some wall organization that won’t take up much space. This wire mesh wall-mount rack is large enough for magazines, but I could see this in a kitchen holding some of your favorite cookbooks, or hung above a kitchen desk to catch the mail and all those papers that come home from school.
If you’ve visited me before, you know I appreciate all kinds of galvanized containers. This galvanized wall mount trough with a wire back attached, could be used in a kitchen, office, laundry room or garage. I could see several small pots of herbs in the kitchen, or jars of nails, screws, nuts and bolts, etc., in the garage. Or how about as a unique holder for rolls of toilet paper in the bathroom?
These wire baskets remind me of the old locker room baskets we used to use after gym class iin high school. I wish now I had a couple of those. These from PB are deep enough, but not too high. You could store table linens, napkins and silverware in these for easy table-setting. Rubber feet keep the basket stable and keeps it from scratching a table or buffet top. Labels tucked into the label holders on the front and back would help to stay organized.
Here’s a nifty solution for a coffee station right in your kitchen. Open stainless steel shelves for storing cups and dishes hang above a basket with a lid for keeping your favorite coffees, teas and sweeteners handy.
Don’t these storage solutions make you just want to dig in and start organizing in your home? The options for unique and stylish storage are endless. I know I need to dig into a few drawers and closets around here. It’s never fun to do, but always such a good feeling when you finish. Maybe the next rainy day . . .
