Does your laundry room need some organization? For all you DIYers out there, try this simple and affordable storage solution from Remodelaholic to get your space looking neat and tidy.

We love the practicality and charm of this metal and wood wall piece. Wall shelves like this are great because they provide storage space while still allowing for another piece of furniture to be placed underneath them. Featuring two shelves and hooks underneath, this unit can maximize your storage space in your kitchen or mudroom. In the kitchen, use it for cookbooks or coffee accessories. In your mudroom, use the hooks for jackets or bags.

Here’s another one for you DIYers that was featured in Domino Magazine’s list of DIY storage solutions for organizing small spaces. This blanket ladder from Francois et Moi is perfect for the winter. Use it in your living room or bedroom not only to get blankets up off the floor but also as a lovely accent piece for the space. Alternatively, try it in the bathroom for towels!

P.S. For you non-DIYers, you can buy a similar one here.

Tuck away the remotes, blankets, and other living room clutter out of sight with this coffee table with a lifting top. We love that this table can also double as a workspace when it’s in the raised position.

Ladder shelves are often popular for displaying books and other decorative trinkets. However, they can become a practical storage solution just by adding some lined bins or baskets, enabling you to store the mess out of sight. This is great for your bathroom, as pictured, in kids’ rooms, offices, and more. And you can get creative on your choice of bins and baskets depending on the room you’re using them in and the look you’re going for!

We hope these suggestions are a helpful starting point as you seek to get organized this new year. Happy de-cluttering!
