Go In­dus­trial

You can find old, in­dus­trial pieces from ware­houses, such as lock­ers, stor­age racks and cab­i­nets, at any flea mar­ket. It seems like there’s never enough counter space for bath­room stor­age, so a cab­i­net with glass doors would come in handy for toi­letries and tow­els.

IT SEEMS LIKE NO HOME IS EVER EQUIPPED WITH ENOUGH STOR­AGE to keep things or­ga­nized and out of the way. Sure, your garage, at­tic and clos­ets pro­vide space for keep­ing stor­age hid­den, but what about the things you want to keep nearby for fre­quent use?

It’s im­por­tant to keep those items close and eas­ily found to keep your life run­ning smoothly. That’s when vin­tage finds can help you get the mess-free home you want with­out los­ing all the charm you’ve worked so hard to build. We’ve put to­gether a gallery of our fa­vorite vin­tage pieces for or­ga­ni­za­tion that won’t com­pro­mise the char­ac­ter of your home.

Tried and True

Noth­ing quite beats a vin­tage cab­i­net for stor­ing your prized pos­ses­sions. Be cog­nizant of what the doors are made of when choos­ing the right stor­age piece. Glass doors will high­light what you put in­side, while wooden doors can hide what’s stored in­side.

Da­m­age Con­trol

You don’t have to worry about mak­ing holes in your walls if you hang dé­cor from a door in­stead. Bas­kets, trays, hooks, clip­boards and more can all be hung from an up­right door to keep your space or­ga­nized and save your walls from da­m­age.

Cubby Co­or­di­nated

If you have sev­eral smaller trea­sures that aren’t part of a col­lec­tion, putting them to­gether on an open shelf can look eclec­tic and dis­jointed. In­stead, it can be visu­ally pleas­ing to give them each their own cubby hole to show­case them in­di­vid­u­ally while tech­ni­cally they’re grouped to­gether.

Hidey Holes

For the craft en­thu­si­ast and col­lec­tor, small col­lec­tions can be tricky to main­tain in an or­derly fash­ion. To keep your sup­plies vis­i­ble and within reach, store like ob­jects in clear jars and line them up on a shelf or table. For ob­jects not wor­thy of dis­play, you can hide them in pots and la­bel them.
