Most of us have been spending a lot of time at home these past few months. For many of us, that has led to the desire to get rid of unnecessary clutter and create a cozy refuge where we can feel safe and recharge. Getting rid of clutter is an essential first step, but we can’t get rid of everything! From the clothes and shoes we wear every day to off-season gear and cleaning products, figuring out where to put everything is the key to realizing your dream of a clean, organized home.
Looking around your house, even after decluttering, you may realize that you don’t have enough storage to keep up with your home’s needs. Creating custom storage solutions to work in your unique spaces might be the solution you’ve been looking for. Laminate shelving and cabinets can be configured to perfectly suit your closet, laundry room, mudroom, and more.
Closets are the workhorse of any home storage system. You can pack them full and close the door and forget about the clutter until, one day, you can’t find your left shoe. Or, you buy new winter coats for the kids because the one that would fit was buried behind golf clubs and last season’s rain jacket. Opening a closet should not cause anxiety! Custom closet storage using laminate cabinets and shelving creates the storage you need by allowing you to customize your system. Maximize hanging space if you hang most of your clothes or install drawers and shelves and hooks if you like to corral little things like kid-sized socks or your collection of clutches.
The mudroom is the drop zone that keeps your entire house cleaner and more organized. If everyone enters the house through the mudroom and takes off their slushy shoes or hangs up their backpack, your home stays cleaner. Make your mudroom work harder by creating custom storage that works exactly as your family needs.
Laminate cabinets and shelving are an ideal solution for a mudroom or entryway because they can be customized to match existing fixtures or woodwork. Customized systems can include benches, cubbies, lockers, and hooks so that there’s a place for everything in your mudroom, and everything can find its place. Laminate systems are easy to keep clean in this hard-working room, and they become a part of your decor in this public-facing part of the house while creating the storage you need.
Whether your laundry room is a sleek main floor extension of your living space or a room tucked away on the lower level, it’s a room that works hard, and it’s probably a room that gets used every day. Imagine if your laundry room had space to store detergent and laundry baskets or pull out bins for sorting laundry. What if you had a work surface for folding laundry right as it came out of the dryer or a place to hang delicate items. You know how you use your laundry room, and you probably know how it could work better. Custom cabinets and shelving can remake your laundry room into precisely the space you need. Whether it’s located where only you can see it or it’s part of the entry, laminate systems look good enough to show off in any room.
Kids, let’s face it, are probably one primary source of the clutter that creeps into every room of your house. Kids are not known for remembering to put their little things away! Whether in a playroom or their bedroom, creating a system for toys and clothes where everything has a spot where it belongs can go a long way toward getting kids involved in taking care of their own stuff.
Closets in kids’ bedrooms are typically outfitted, just like any other bedroom closet in the house, but that doesn’t always work. Reconfigure a kid’s closet with a customized laminate system to take advantage of the unique storage needs of little family members. Double up on hanging rods because kids have smaller clothes or create cubbies or drawers for the little socks that always seem to be on the floor. Carry the system into the bedroom to create matching shelving for books and boys. Incorporate pull out bins for legos or mini work stations for arts and crafts to create a place where kids can have fun and corral the clutter when it’s time to clean up.
Laminate cabinets and shelving systems are worth considering for any room in your home that needs a custom storage system. Laminate comes in a variety of colors and finishes and can be configured and installed to meet your family’s needs. Your laminate system will look and feel custom because it will be designed for you.
