Practical Yet Pretty

First ImageThe key to a nicely organized home is pretty simple: keep it functional without sacrificing design. By this, I mean that you don’t want things to look cluttered but you also don’t want to have to travel to your basement every time you want to vacuum the rug.

Take my kitchen as an example – it is fairly small, but it’s also a space in which I need several things to be easily accessible. My solution? Keep the pretty, functional things in plain sight and hide the less attractive items. Items like my sponge are hidden in a bowl at the top of my sink, while my drying rack are placed in a cabinet below the sink. When I am doing dishes, I whip out both of these items and when the dishes are done drying, they both go away.

This strategy can be applied to absolutely every room in the house so go ahead and give it a try!
