Closet Storage Bins and Boxes
Closets can become a catch-all for clothes, toys, shoes and all the random things that float around the house. When planning a closet, keep in mind that you can use storage bins and boxes to tame the clutter and make storing items, such as seasonal clothes, hassle-free. Speaking of clothes, vacuum bags are a great way to seal and protect them from damage while maximizing space.
Need to keep folded clothes neat and make the trip from laundry room to closet easy for everyone? Try a storage bin. Open plastic, mesh or metal storage bins are also terrific for taming toys, keeping sports equipment together and fit nicely under hanging clothes in children's closets.
Plastic boxes with lids, cardboard boxes and reinforced fabric boxes are useful for storing seasonal clothes and bulky items, protecting them from dust and making good use of high shelves above rods and those floor spaces under hanging clothes. Clear boxes are great for organizing closets because they allow you to assess their contents from a distance, protect clothes from moisture and deter bugs.
Boxes come in such a wide variety of sizes that they can accommodate any item you might need to store and the variety of colors and styles can turn storage into a decorative element. Create labels with words and pictures to turn a child's closet into a fun learning area. Your kids will love learning to read the labels on the boxes of their favorite toys.
