You can transform and organize your utility closet too! I’m sharing my 7 how to tips for a total utility closet transformation with you below:
7 Tips to Organize Your Utility Closet
- Eye level access for frequently used items is key – Place the cleaning solutions and tools you use everyday or frequently at eye level so you can easily access them.
- Stash extras up high – Extra supplies like paper towels, tissue, and other pantry items that you rarely use should go up on the higher shelves.
- Utilize your corner space – I know baby should never go in the corner, but this is not the case with cleaning supplies and other pantry items. Build corner shelves to maximize storage space and leave vertical space open for long handled mops, vacuums, etc.
- Leave space for future additions – Try not to max out your space, so that you have room for future purchases.
- Plan floor space for the vacuum – Chances are it won’t fit on a shelf, so leave it some wiggle room on the floor.
- Hang it up – use hanging broom organizers and hooks to maximize space.
- Bins are your friend. Label them – Use bins to group cleaning supplies and create order.
