When it comes to succeeding in life, organization is often key. If we stop to think about it, we’ve been rehearsing and performing this activity all our lives. As toddlers we organized our toys, games and stuffed animals, as youngsters and adolescence we kept track of homework, sports gear and our ever growing list of friends. Seemingly, the skill of sorting, arranging, and maintaining our lives has been years in the making. So, now that we’re all grown up and in total acceptance of this lifelong task, why not look good in the process? Check out these smart and decorative ways we can all stay neat and tidy in every room of our house….oh, and you can now check this off your list of to-dos.

Metal Baskets-Living Room Storage
Living rooms are often multifunctional and this fun and quirky steampunk TV stand certainly fits that description. Metal baskets not only keep items neatly sorted, they also blend in seamlessly.

Classic Lockers-Dining Room Storage
Storage systems can also be unexpected…in a really good way. Take these dynamic green lockers used as a credenza in this easy-going dining room. With so many home makers transforming this underused space, other items like crafts and books can be placed here as well.
Galvanized Trunk-Bedroom Storage
What could be smarter than a dual-purposed piece of furniture in the bedroom, typically a space hungry room in our home and always in need of extra storage. This current and attractive galvanized trunk plays to parts: storage for blankets and pillows and a seat for putting on shoes in the morning…intelligent, indeed. *HomeJelly found this galvanized-finish wooden trunk for less.
Vintage Wooden Tool Box-Bathroom Storage
Smart storage can also have a sense of humor, like this fun vintage tool box turned towel rack. Talk about adding instant personality, you’ll have guests definitely commenting on how fantastic an idea this is.
Vintage Wash Tub-Guest Room Storage
The one room in the house we’d love to always be guest-ready is, of course, our guest room! Hospitality should also be apparent, so why not house extra blankets, towels, bathrobes, and slippers in a character-filled vintage wash tub? It will add a sense of comfort and welcome, all the while containing your niceties with decor panache. *HomeJelly found these vintage style wash tubs for less.
