My Better Homes and Gardens Dream Home
Organized garage - Everything is in easy reach, and off the floor! From Better Homes and Gardens.
Organization Operating System A lack of proper filing space can put you on the fast track to piles of paper that require a Herculean effort to tackle. On the other hand, the right number of file sleeves make it easy to keep up with incoming bills and receipts sans overstuffing. Serve up generous file storage in style by pushing together a series of two-drawer filing cabinets to form a credenza. Unite the units with a matching coat of paint and top with a bulletin board to make light work of ...
Functional and calm filing system. From Better Homes and Gardens.
"Divide & Conquer: While big open spaces are important in the office, little nooks to cozy up in define the rest of the house. Bookcases serve as open dividers between rooms while still providing those comfy nooks with lots of shelf space for storage. Organizing books by color adds an interesting decorative touch."
Clever use of bookshelf as partial wall divider. This will look perfect in the basement bedroom! From Better Homes and Gardens.

This bathroom is a lot like the one in our Tippah Ave house in Charlotte; it too was small with: a window above the tub; a pedestal sink; and the commode was between the sink and the tub. There was one small medicine cabinet, so the three of us (J, G, and me) kept our personal toiletries in little handled bins we took into the bathroom with us. The medicine cabinet held the things we all used: aspirin, etc. This system actually worked quite well for us. I installed glass shelves above the commode which held soap, cotton balls, etc. and I stored extra folded towels on the back of the commode. This was the best tub I've ever used in my life, and I loved my little bathroom.
Impress Your Guests Here's another stylish, storage-savvy entry cozy recessed niche that offers a place to kick off shoes or drop off a bag. A coat closet on each side ensures clutter stays hidden from sight, maintaining the clean look of the entry. Dark slate tile provides a nice contrast to the white woodwork, boasts ample traction, and conceals any dirt left behind from shoes. Undercover, out of sight storage and classy look.
I would feel like a princes putting my shoes on here, and I love the tucked away closet to keep clutter at a minimum. From Better Homes and Gardens.
