If you’re short on pantry space and have a counter or two to spare, there are plenty of clear storage solutions that will look cool to boot. Take your nuts, dried fruit, rice cakes, chocolate chips, cereal, baking goods and display them. You can also find storage solutions that fit nicely inside cupboards if you don’t fancy having everything out.
I learned a trick from a friend. If you buy your spices and seasonings in bulk, or large quantities, you can buy clear jars/containers with chalk markers and just fill the smaller containers up and hide the large, ugly containers somewhere safe. There are shelves you can attach near your cooking station and you can display your spices and yes, spices can look cool too….
All of these containers were purchased on Amazon but you can also go to The Container Store for a slightly higher price, you’ll find glass containers that are pretty enough to display if you choose to.
Entryway & Bedroom Clothing Racks
If you live in an older home then I feel your pain! Many of the older homes have little to no closet space. Let’s move on to ways you can add closet space to your home. My niece had one armoire in my sister’s older home so they went to Ikea and bought a modern, black hanging rack. Much like myself, she loves fashion and pretty things so she hung all her pretty clothes on the rack by color and with new wood hangers. There are ways of using racks that can look really chic!
I think you have enough to get yourself on your way to a fresh start in your kitchen and home! One thing I find is that when my home is organized and neat, I feel content and can easily get on with my day knowing that when I get home, things are in order.
