Organizing Shelves So They Are Neater And More Functional
Don’t you just it love when you walk into a store or see one on TV and all the things on the shelves look so neat? You go home and refold and neatly stack the things on your shelves and they look better but still not quite the same.
What is their secret?
They leave at least a couple of inches of space between their stacks of items. Not only do they leave space between their stacks but also from the top of the stack to the top of the next shelf.
You may say, “This is nice but aren’t you wasting a lot of space at home?”
Yes and no. You do lose some inches but at the same time organizing your stacks this way on your shelves makes it so much easier to get things in and out. Not only does it look nicer but is easier to use and keep neat.
This same principle works with other things like your desktop, tools or furniture. Have you every noticed something is wrong with the furniture in a room. It looks cluttered but it doesn’t have that much in it. Sometimes that is a result of not leaving enough space in between the pieces of furniture or items.
If something looks off in your room, try pulling things apart or away from the walls and see what a difference it makes.
