Feeling Unorganized? Tips to Help You Manage Your Residential Space

Most of have a junk room or a closet in our home that’s in desperate need of some organization. The summer months present a great opportunity to tackle this project! Organizing different areas of your house will not only make you feel better, but it can also greatly improve your home’s functionality and aesthetics. However, this task can also feel very overwhelming, so how do you get started?

Here are some tips for organizing the bedrooms, closets, cabinets, garage, and basement in your home.


It can be easy for things to pile up in a bedroom because most people never see it. The key to keeping this space organized is to try to declutter it regularly by removing items that you no longer need or use. Here are some more specific tips to organize this space:

  • Use storage bins and cabinets: Invest in storage bins for your closet or under your bed. Nightstands with drawers and multi-functional furniture can also help you get organized.
  • Maximize Closet Space: Use shelf dividers, hanging organizers, and double rods to increase storage capacity.
  • Keep Surfaces Clear: Limit items on dressers and nightstands to essentials.
  • Organize your room by zones: Create specific areas for sleeping, dressing, and working if space allows.


Many people get into the habit of shoving things into a closet, so they are out of sight. This is a bad habit and can create more problems if it’s not organized! You can help to overcome closet clutter by:

  • Categorizing Your items: Group similar items together (e.g., all shirts, pants, shoes).
  • Use Uniform Hangers: This not only looks neater but also saves space.
  • Add Shelving: Install additional shelves to use vertical space efficiently.
  • Incorporate Drawers or Bins: Use them for smaller items like accessories or seasonal clothes.
  • Label Everything: Make it easy to find and return items to their designated spots.


Cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms can also get unruly if they’re not maintained properly. You can keep them organized by:

  • Keeping Frequently Used Items Front and Center: Keep items that you use regularly at eye level or within easy reach.
  • Use Clear Containers: In addition to helping group like things together, clear containers also display contents, making them easier to find.
  • Adjust Shelf Heights: Customize shelves to fit the items you need to organize.
  • Install Pull-Out Drawers: These make it easier to access items at the back of the cabinet.
  • Utilize Door Space: Add racks or hooks on the inside of cabinet doors for extra storage.


Nowadays, garages house a lot more than just cars. They usually also contain things like tools, yard equipment, toys, games, and sports equipment. In order to keep all of these items in check, it’s a good idea to implement a floor plan to designate specific spots for each type of item. Other ideas to help you organize this space include:

  • Use Wall Space: Install pegboards, shelves, and hooks to keep items off the floor.
  • Invest in Heavy-Duty Shelving: Shelves are ideal for storing all types of items and are a good place to keep containers.
  • Label and Categorize: Keep similar items together and clearly label storage bins.


If you basement isn’t finished it can also become a deposit point for things you are no longer using regularly. Rather than letting things pile up, you should take the opportunity to organize them:

  • Create Zones: Just like the garage, designate specific areas for different categories of items.
  • Use Sturdy Shelving Units: Metal or plastic shelves are ideal for basements, due to potential moisture issues. By stacking items on a shelf, you can categorize things and make them more accessible.
  • Group Together Seasonal Items: Keep holiday decorations in one place and organize them by season.
  • Use Clear Plastic Bins: They protect against moisture and pests while making it easy to see the contents.

By implementing these strategies, you can create a more organized and functional living space, making it easier to find your things and maintain order in your home! If you need more help organizing your residential space, contact us, so we can assist you.
