Use the height in your home to your advantage: Pile books high on tower shelves to use otherwise unused space.
Do Double Duty
Room dividing shelves neatly separate one area from another, but also provide storage.
The Drawers Have It
Keep laundry supplies and clothes waiting to be ironed and mended neatly tucked away in storage drawers adjacent to your washer and dryer.
Keep It Logical

Make an Everyday Rule
If you don't use an appliance or tool in your kitchen every day, remove it from your countertops. Only pull it out when you need it.DK - House Works © 2010 Dorling Kindersley Limited
A Well-Stocked Pantry
Organize your pantry items by category. Keep vegetables, grains, fruits, condiments and baking items with each other.
Make it Beautiful
Create a closet that is not only functional but is beautiful! You'll naturally want to maintain a space that's lovely to look at more than you will want to keep up an unattractive one.
Consider using glass-door shelving to keep your shelves under control, and free of dust.
