7 ideas for organizing your home to curb the chaos

The best way to keep small items organized at home is to have a designated place for each and every one. If you seem to be short of storage space, various boxes, shelves, and racks will come in handy. Beautiful storage items can be left visible and they can hold a good amount of stuff.

Ferm Living Paper Pulp Boxes

An ecological option

Made from recycled paper pulp, Ferm Living’s storage boxes are ideal for any type of storage, either in cabinets or in sight. The boxes with lids are easy to stack and are lightweight for easy handling. The rough-looking paper pulp boxes also provide a fun solution for interior design: an open-minded decorator can stack the boxes to make for example a convenient side table or bedside table. The size of the boxes is 30 x 40 cm and height 15 cm.

Woud O&O clothes rack, large, black

Extra space in the wardrobe

If your wardrobe is full to bursting point, why not arrange extra space outside it?

The simple, sleek rack made from metal is ideal for hanging clothes you’ve worn but don’t need washing yet, or the absolute beauties of your wardrobe, but it also adapts well to the storage needs of your hallway.
