Drawers, no matter where they are in your home, can certainly get messy from time to time. It’s so easy to throw something in a drawer, close it, and then forget about it. Out of sight out of mind…right?
Well, before you know it, your drawers can become cluttered and completely unorganised. They’ll be so full that you won’t be able to shut them properly, or so messy that you can’t find anything you actually need!
It’s important to know how to organise drawers properly so that mess doesn’t become a recurring problem. An organised home will make you feel more in control and much more relaxed. From drawers in your kitchen to tool boxes in your workshop or garage, here are a few top tips on how you can keep everything neat, tidy, and well organised.
How to organise drawers in your house
What might seem like a daunting task can be pretty straightforward with these simple organisation and storage hacks.
How to organise drawers in the bedroom
The bedroom tends to be where most people keep their clothes, shoes and jewellery, so it’s no surprise that bedroom drawers can get so messy. If you need to know how to organise clothes in your drawers and wardrobe, here’s what we’d recommend.
One of the most effective methods is a folding practice made popular by Netflix’s Marie Kondo. The ‘KonMari Method’ consists of a simple folding and rolling technique that will keep your drawers organised and uncluttered, making it much easier to find what you need.
Another popular storage option for bedrooms is drawer dividers, which can also be used alongside the Marie Kondo drawers method. Dividers are a great way to separate the space in your drawers, providing individual compartments for your clothes and any accessories.
If you’re unsure on how to organise a drawer for jewellery, watches and other accessories, a great storage solution could be custom foam inserts. Foam inserts are a fantastic choice when it comes to storing watches and jewellery pieces – and they make your drawers look pretty stylish too!
Kitchen drawer organising
The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house, so having organised drawers is a must! With so many cooking utensils and kitchen supplies in the same room, it can be tough to keep them organised and stored correctly.
The best place to start is taking the time to clear out your cupboards and drawers, one at a time. You can then use one of these kitchen drawer hacks to organise them:
- Draw dividers: Like in the bedroom, you can use drawer dividers to keep your knives, forks, spoons and other utensils neatly organised. Though perhaps in the kitchen, you should opt for drawer dividers made from plastic or another durable material, as opposed to fabric dividers typically used in bedroom drawers. You can even use custom fit dividers to split up the space into the exact dimensions needed.
- Small boxes: Sort your kitchen pans, pots and other tools into their own separate small boxes. Not only will this speed up the time it takes you to put clean items away, it also means you can just pull out one box at a time.
- Deep drawers for dishes: If you have deep drawers in your kitchen, consider using them to store plates, bowls or even containers. Use dividers here as well, so that they don’t become cluttered.
Garage storage drawers
If you’re not one of these people who applies military-grade precision to your garage organisation, then it can be pretty easy to end up with cluttered tool drawers. One of the best ways to organise your garage drawers and tool boxes is with your own DIY custom tool storage method.
Custom foam inserts are a great way to make better use of the space you have, while ensuring your tools are easy to find. With Easy Peel, you can use our online calculator to create and order a foam insert that will fit perfectly into your garage drawers or toolbox.
