16 Ways to Get Your Home Organized in 2016

It’s a new year and you’ve resolved to tackle some organizational issues in your home for 2016.

But when you look around, all you feel is overwhelmed and it all needs work.

Give yourself a break

Just pick one room or space in your home. Fulfill a New Year’s resolution by organizing that space.

By focusing in on one manageable project, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment and that may be enough.

After all, the worst thing that could happen is you get the energy and initiative to do more organizing in your home.

Which space will you organize this year?

Listed below are some spaces in your home that often have organizational issues. We have design solutions for each of them but you have to decide which space to tackle first.

Custom closet for master bedroom with pitched roof line.


Do you have to slowly open your closet door just in case something is about to fall out on you? Is there a knee-deep pile of clothing on your floor?

It’s time to look at some solutions to keeping your closet organized. From simple to extravagant, discover how closet organizers can maximize your storage space.

Bed surrounds

If the last thing you look at before closing your eyes each night is a tabletop of clutter, you might want to think beyond replacing your nightstand.

Bed surrounds are custom-designed for your space and offer a stylish solution to a good night’s sleep.

laundry room storage

Laundry room

Do you dread doing laundry? It may feel like it’s a chore because its buried deep in the bowels of your home, or it’s just a dreary process. It doesn’t have to be.

Treat your laundry room like any decorated room that can use a designer’s flare. From simple solutions to high quality custom solutions just look at what’s available to transform that space.

Home office

Paper isn’t going away anytime soon and home offices still need filing space to store your hard copies.

Whether it’s a corner carved out under a staircase or a full-sized room in your home, treat yourself to a home office with function and style.

Entertainment unit

As our home screens become bigger, we seem to be plugging more and more devices into our TVs – AppleTV, Google Chromecast, Roku Media Players and more.

Keeping all of these devices and cables organized requires more than a sturdy shelf. Choosing a custom entertainment unit solution over a prefab unit has many advantages.


The layout works, the fixtures are fine, but your bathroom cabinets are showing their age. Changing moisture levels and wear from dampness can make cabinets look dingy and worn.

If it’s time for an upgrade, replace them with long-lasting, beautiful cabinets. Learn more about our custom bathroom cabinetry.

Wall bed in a condo.

Wall bed

If your holiday guests looked tired when they woke up, maybe its time to get rid of that lumpy, bulky futon. But where can you put a mattress that’s not used everyday without taking up precious space?

You won’t believe how a wall bed helped a small condo add a whole guest room without adding square footage!

Kitchen cabinetry

Your kitchen is the hardest working room in your home. It also demands the most organization to function properly.

You can achieve the most efficient space when you are part of planning the solution. Take a look at some of the latest innovations in our kitchen cabinetry.

Dressing room

You’ve been eyeing that spare room, contemplating its next incarnation, plotting the take over, and this is the year.

Transform a whole room into a dressing room or large walk-in closet.

Imagine wall-to-wall cabinetry for clothing and accessories, a make up area complete with vanity and even a lounging space because dressing can be so exhausting. Prepare to drool.

wine storage

Wine storage

Collecting wine is more popular and we now see the value of devoting more space in our home to fit it into our lifestyle. Wine requires ideal conditions: a space that is dry, dark and away from movement.

A rack wedged under a staircase just won’t do. Here are some wine storage ideas to help keep your collection organized.


Are all your closets bulging with too much stuff? If you’re not ready to reduce clutter, redistribute it.

Instead of buying a pre-finished, assemble-it-yourself wardrobe unit from a big box store, take a look at a custom solution.

You choose the finish, the interior layout, and the size to suit you, not the other way around. Here are some wardrobe examples.

bar cabinetry

Bar cabinetry

Aside from a wet bar requiring running water, you can set up a bar in almost any room in your home.

All you need is a little imagination, inspiration, and customization. Have a look at some of these bar ideas from Organized Interiors.

Upgrade your closet with accessories

Sometimes it’s the smallest projects that give us the greatest sense of satisfaction. Keeping everything in your closet organized starts your day and ends it on a good note.

From shoe racks to jewelry drawers, there are many options to get you organized. A valet rod is one of our most popular closet accessories.

The garage

Do you see your garage as one big storage container? When it comes to attention to detail for organizing solutions the garage is the new laundry room.

This could be your one big project of 2016. From flooring to overhead storage, Garage Living has everything to keep your garage looking pristine and organized.
