Closet and Pantry Organization Hacks

Organization is key to a functional home. Spaces like closets and pantries can easily become overcrowded and hard to navigate. How can you maximize your closet and pantry space to make your day-to-day life easier?  Here are a few clever hacks to help.

 

Drawers

Putting a small dresser or drawer unit in your pantry or closet is a great way to put your floor space to use. In a closet, they make so much sense under your hanging clothes. Use the drawers to store pants or folded tops in your closet, or to store snacks in your pantry.

 

Lazy Susan

A Lazy Susan in your pantry is a quick way to easily see everything in the space. Instead of pulling out cans and bottles one by one to view what’s tucked in the back of the shelf, place the items onto a Lazy Susan and simply rotate to find what you need.

 

Hanging Organizers

Use hanging organizers in your closet or your pantry!  In closets, use them to store shoes, accessories, or winter gear. Add a hanging organizer on the back of your pantry door to make spices, snacks or bottled drinks easy to access.

 

Hooks

Hooks are your friend! Hang belts, scarves, jewelry, and hats on small hooks in your closet, and use larger hooks to hang hoodies or jackets. Hooks can be added to wall space or the back of doors for easy access.  In the pantry, hang pots, lids, and utensils from hooks. You can even hang a caddy with hooks and fill it with spices, condiments, or other items.

 

Drawer Organizers

In the kitchen, place dividers and smaller bins into your drawers to separate your utensils, lids, or spices. In closets, use drawer organizers to separate underwear and socks.

 

Clear Containers and Bins

Investing in uniform containers for storage will make your life easier. Instead of trying to fit boxes and cartons that are all different sizes into your pantry space, invest in clear containers that are all the same size, which will stack easily and line up perfectly. This also makes it easier to tell when you’re running low on any pantry staples! Airtight storage containers will also keep your food fresher for longer.

Clear bins and containers can be helpful in closets, too.  Use them for easy viewing of supplies or to rotate seasonal clothing or other items. They make it easy to grab what you need quickly.

Meet the Magnolia Ridge

The Magnolia Ridge is a split floorplan offering both privacy for living quarters and abundant open space for family time and entertaining friends.  Upon entering the home from the covered porch, you find yourself in a large, open concept living space. This great family and entertainment space includes a large living room, dining room and kitchen combination.  Windows and doorways allow for ample natural lighting in addition to lighting fixtures throughout. The open kitchen features stainless steel appliances, countertop space and room for an island.

 

 

The floorplan offers a large master suite at the rear of the home that includes a spacious walk-in closet. You’ll also find a luxurious master suite featuring double vanities, a linen closet, and both a bathtub and shower.

 

 

 

A two-car garage and mudroom/laundry complete the lower level of this end of the house, giving you ample space for vehicles and storage.  Over the garage, an option for a generously sized utility space gives you space for a man-cave, playroom, office or guest room.

 

At the opposite end of the lower floor, two bedrooms flank a bath with a tub/shower, double vanities and linen closet.  Perfect for the kids or grandkids, this arrangement provides privacy for the master suite and space for the entire family.  With lots of upgrade options, you can truly make it your own!
