If there's ever a time to Marie Kondo your home, it's during lockdown. From decluttering to putting things in order, it can give you something to focus on - and deliver some very satisfying results.
There are plenty of options out there - here are some of the cleverest storage solutions around:
The first step is to get rid of crumpled packets and half empty boxes in your kitchen cupboards. Then you can get organised. Choosing a range of containers that fit on your shelves, stack if needed, and are easy to open can be a great way of cleaning up your pantry, and allowing you easy access to whatever you're cooking with.
The ClickClack 10-Piece Pantry Cube Starter Set, $131.50 is a great start to making your kitchen cupboards look presentable. They are BPA free, airtight so food stays fresh, are clear so you can see what's inside, and are able to be stacked too.
Make it easy to see spices and herbs with the Box Sweden Crystal 3 Tier Shelf Organiser, $16. Made from a durable BPA plastic, this small shelf is great to allow easy access to different jars without having to rummage around in the cupboard.
If you want to make a statement with your kitchen storage, the Scullery Bamboo & Glass Canisters come in a range of shapes and sizes, starting from $16.99. With an air-tight seal, the eco-friendly bamboo lid brings a touch of interest to your food storage.
Storage for kids
Childrens' toys can quickly spread through the house - particularly when they're at home all day. Quick, easy storage - that children can use too - is the key to making toys disappear at the end of the day.
There's plenty of opportunity to be creative here too; we love this clever hack from @thefestiveco, who has used sturdy hooks and 2 KOMPLEMENT multi-use hangers from IKEA side by side to store cuddly toys.
Other great options include the Kids House Shelf, $49.95 from Mocka which looks like a decorative addition to a room, the cute Wilbur Kids Storage Shelf, 69.95 from Mocka, and the Mia Kids Table and Chair Set, $139, that contains hidden away storage boxes underneath.
With everyone at home, the laundry can quickly turn into a dumping ground; piles of clothes, unwashed towels and all the household items you don't know what else to do with.
The Laundry Basket Clothes Storage Shelf, $56.95, is a practical and convenient way to store laundry.
Either have dirty laundry in the bottom and washing powder in the top, or put clean dry laundry in when you're ready to put it away.
Clear out your cupboards, and make brooms and mops easy to reach with the Ortega Home Multi-Purpose Mop & Broom Hanging Organiser, $7.99. It screws on the wall or back of a door and is designed to hold up to five items.
If you're short on space and don't have room for a full-sized laundry basket, the Sherwood Rectangular Linen & Bamboo Laundry Hamper, $31.95, is a foldable hamper that can sit on a shelf or washing machine.
Made from bamboo and a woven fabric blend, it conceals odours, and has handles for easy lifting.
Clever storage around the home
If you're lacking in permanent shelving space or cupboards, that doesn't mean you can't put things away. There are plenty of inventive storage solutions which are designed to be used in small or awkward spaces.
Typo's Small Foldable Storage Crates, $9.99 are a brilliant solution that can help with storage - and bring some colour to your room.
Pack them with books, trinkets, or use them as shelves. They're a great space saver and designed to flat pack away when they're not being used.
If your bedside table is cluttered with essential - but not pretty - items, Home Republic's Vintage Washed Linen Nude Pink Bedside Organiser, $49.99, is a good option.
Just tuck it under your mattress, and store small items such as your phone, glasses or a book inside it. It's available in a range of colours.
Adairs Natural Gingham Storage Bags, from $24.99, are a great way of storing away clothes or linen you don't use regularly, while keeping them in good condition.
They're functional and flexible with a clear window so you can label what's inside each one. They all have a zip, handles, and come in a range of sizes from small to extra large. Fit them in the bottom or your wardrobe, or under your bed.
