We all love home decor that looks like it came out of a magazine. But, with kids and pets, some designs are not functional or realistic. That’s why we have compiled a list of tips to help you decorate your home in a stylish and functional way. You and your family are sure to love these home organization tips.

Use Cabinet Dividers

The kitchen is easily one of the rooms that quickly gets out of order. Piled pots and pans and thrown about kitchen utensils can make cooking an overwhelming task. Cabinet dividers are a great way to organize your kitchen space and make cooking more efficient. Spice holders, pots and pan racks, and rotating kitchen ingredient carousels are all some of our favorite products.

Try Recessed Curtain Tracks

If you dread opening and closing your curtains in the morning, you’ll love recessed curtain tracks. A recessed curtain track offers a perfect fit and makes adjusting your curtains easier than ever. Easily take a mid-afternoon nap by sliding closed the window shades. Since the track is completely built into the ceiling, it gives you full floor-to-ceiling coverage, making the room look bigger. Use a neutral-colored shade for a minimalist look that will stay in style for many years.

Home Stylish

Use Your Wall Space

If storage space is limited in your home and there’s simply no room left over for another dresser or storage compartment, consider using wall space. Floating shelves offer a modern touch to your home while increasing your living room storage. Adding cubbies to your nursery wall gives you more space for children’s toys and games. Even adding a few hooks below shelves gives you and your guests a place to hang your coats and umbrellas.

Make the Entryway the Focal Point

Making your entryway the focal point of your home offers a few benefits. For one, the entryway serves as your family’s home base. It’s where everyone will look for their shoes, backpacks, and other belongings as they head out the door each morning. Designing a well-organized space will make your day-to-day more functional. This is also the room that visitors first see, making it a great place to put coat hooks, an umbrella rack, and a place for shoes. Add a favorite family photograph to the wall, and you set the tone for a modern, visually appealing home.

Remember – Less is More

Less is more when it comes to home design. Too many photographs or paintings on the wall or wall-to-wall storage can make your home feel and look smaller. Any time you’re considering adding a new piece of furniture or storage container to your home, consider exactly where it will go. Take the measurements and lay them out in that space to see how they fit in with your current room size.

Designate a Place for Everything

Following along with the idea that less is more, you should designate a place for everything in the home. Ensure each kitchen utensil, home decor item, or clothing accessory has a place. Once you assign a place for each item in the household, you’ll find that you’re more likely to put it away after use.

Otherwise, items get left on the kitchen table, counter, or that one catch-all chair. The hardest part about this tip is when you live in an area with changing seasons. You may fall out of the habit of putting your winter coat away each time you return home if you don’t wear a coat all year long.

Design Rooms Around Functionality

Try to keep functionality in mind when designing or renovating rooms. For example, if you’re remodeling the laundry room, make sure you have a place for laundry detergent and fabric softener nearby the washer and dryer. A garbage can placed in an easy-to-reach location also minimizes the mess as you carry washed receipts or dryer sheets from the appliances to the garbage can.

Plan for Multi-Purpose Rooms

Living in a smaller home may make you feel like you don’t have enough rooms. Multi-purpose spaces allow you to efficiently use each room while meeting your family’s unique needs. Add a small desk to a home office for a quiet study spot for children. Store your craft items in a roll-away storage cabinet in your bedroom for a tidy space.

The best-looking homes aren’t always the most functional, and the best-functioning homes aren’t always aesthetically pleasing. We’re here to solve that problem for you. With a little planning and a careful selection of home decor, it’s possible to enjoy a stylish and functional home.
