A good time for organization is when you first move into a home. This way you can go through all of your things and toss the stuff you no longer need. You can also evaluate your new home for organizational needs. If you have a garage, you will want to keep it neat so the car will always fit inside.
There are so many types of shelves for home storage needs, you will not have any problems getting what you need. Perhaps a few garage storage racks and a metal locker will be all you will need to keep this space neat as a pin.
Next, you might consider your basement and outside areas. Perhaps you have no storage under the house, and few nice backyard sheds could do the trick. Keep size in mind if you are going to store a mower in it, and check with your township to see how large of a shed you can have without causing your taxes to rise.
You could then install a few of those shelves for home storage use on the inside of your shed. Possibly a garden tool organizer and some wood shelving might be more your style.
Then you need to consider your home food storage needs. You could use nice shiny chrome wire shelving for your pantry or kitchen needs. This allows you to store anything you bring home from the discount club.
You can decide what matches your decor best when you are choosing all of your shelves for home use. Shopping online can give you many choices not found in the local home improvement stores. It is worth a look. Consider wire shelving in closets and bathrooms if your space is limited in those areas.
Now all that is left is the living and office areas. Always pick something, which will complement your furniture such as neutral colors or wood. You do not want to change furniture and have to change all of the shelves for home storage you have previously installed.
If you do not have bookshelves available, then some nice wood or even corner shelving can give you a bit more room. Also next to televisions, and computers there should be a CD or DVD storage rack handy to keep the empty box syndrome to a minimum. After installing everything securely, you are ready to put away all of those things you own that had no home of their own before. You will be so proud of how neat it all looks now.
