Tips To Be More Organized This Year

We all know the saying, “When one door closes, another one opens.” Although this mantra is usually offered as a sort of condolence from loved ones when one of your goals doesn’t go exactly as planned, choosing to see the potential for a positive outcome within every situation is a perfect way to start the new year.

We’ve given you basement storage ideas, but what about the rest of the house? Here are some tips for how to make the most out of unused space behind your cabinet, closet and bedroom doors. So open all those closed doors and start getting organized.

Kitchen

How many times have you lost that ¼ measuring cup and had to try and fill a ½ cup halfway to compensate? With this Cabinet Door Measuring Cup Holder, you’ll never have to worry about guessing the teaspoon equivalent for three and a half tablespoons. You can also organize your pantry with this Shoe Organizer Pantry Storage idea.

Rec Room

Not only is the rec room used for family game night, but it’s also used for play dates, hobby space, and more. For this reason, this versatile room can start to look cluttered pretty quickly. Something as simple as adding pegboard to the back of your door like this Pegboard Craft Room Organizer can create designated spaces for each of your rec room uses.

Bathroom

Without proper organization, getting ready in the morning can leave your bathroom covered in wet towels, toothpaste, and other hygienic products. Try adding this Mason Jar Organizer to the back of your bathroom door, or this Magnetic Strip Storage for bobby pins and small cosmetic tools to the inside of your bathroom cabinet door.

Bedroom

Sometimes you have to get creative in order to squeeze a little more storage room out of a small space, like this Over The Door Shelf.

And other times, your storage solution is hanging on the back of your bedroom door, like these DIY Clothes Hanger Jewelry Organizers.

What Does It Look Like To Lower Your Basement Floor?


We understand the importance of transparency when it comes to explaining our processes to homeowners. That’s why we’ve compiled these images from one of our basement floor lowering projects to help you better understand our process, and what it takes to lower your floor.

First, We Inspect

Our Keystone Basement Systems team performs an initial inspection to evaluate the condition of your floor and speaks with you to discuss how basement lowering can increase the value of your home.
