Organization tools are essential in every home, no matter its size. And as you make your way from room to room, you can incorporate these utilitarian pieces to streamline your space. "If it's an area that traditionally necessitates organization—like a playroom, kitchen, or office—organizational opportunities should be top of mind," Hattie Collins, the owner and creator of Hattie Sparks and Hattie Sparks Interiors, says. "The addition of a built-in or simple cabinetry goes a long way in helping keep these rooms organized and looking intentional, as opposed to an afterthought." In addition to other built-in designs, like open shelving, Marissa Hagmeyer, the co-founder of NEAT Method, suggests buying pieces that double as décor and storage solutions in your home. Ahead, discover some of our favorite aesthetically-pleasing, storage-maximizing options on the market today.
