What Houzz contributors are saying:
Grab a basket. Granted, there are times when you just need to get things picked up. Torey teaches out of her home, and because of the layout, the kitchen, the dining room, the upstairs hall, her daughters' bedroom, the family room and the bathroom all have the possibility of being viewed by clients. She has a couple baskets where she can quickly stash her family's belongings, which they can then put away at their leisure.
Hooks are an oldie but a goody and cannot be used enough in my opinion. I love the classic look of hooks and their ability to be placed just about anywhere.Notice the high shelf in this image. Not only is it functional, but the items placed on it make the space feel cozy — score!
A mudroom is a savior when it comes to managing kids with dirty boots, school bags and wet coats.Install hooks to hang jackets and dog leashes for easy access. Woven baskets with labels make it easy for children to store and organize their outdoor gear.If you do not currently have a mudroom, you can buy an indoor entryway bench for storing umbrellas, mittens and scarves that children usually throw around.
