5 Key Organizational Tips for Beautiful Small Spaces

If both living space and storage space is tight at your home, one of two things usually happens: either you simply aren’t able to have all of the things you want to have or you do and they are strewn about haphazardly. While many homeowners don’t think it’s possible to organize a small space in a beautiful, functional way, it is! Here are some tips.

Go Vertical

This might be the king of all small space organizational tips. When in doubt, look upward. The majority of homeowners leave a lot of wall space unused, and that’s fine if you have a lot of square footage. However, it’s certainly not ok for someone trying to pack a life into a small house. While there are plenty of creative ideas for maximizing vertical storage, the easiest and most common are shelves, hooks, and hanging baskets.

Maximize Storage Inside Furniture

As a rule, you should try to limit furniture that doesn’t contain extra storage. For example, opt for a coffee table that’s hollow inside instead of one made of solid material. Your side tables should have drawers, as well. Your ottoman, bed frame, entertainment center, etc, should be full of nooks and crannies for extra storage. And if you think functionality means ugly, think again! Also, remember this: you'll need storage solutions for any outdoor stuff. You can use deck boxes and benches in the same way to store thing like cushions, pool supplies, and outdoor toys.

Say No to Unitaskers

When you’re trying to create space and organization in a small house, the fewer actual items you can have, the better. That’s why it’s vital that you cut unitaskers from your life as often as you can. Most things in your house should be able to perform more than one task and be a true multitasker. Get a washer/dryer combo unit instead of two separate machines. Buy a small toaster oven that has multiple functions. Make sure your nightstand doubles as an organizational tool, complete with storage. This rule also applies to kitchen items.

Get Very Creative with Space

You must use every bit of space you have. This means more than simply making sure every drawer, cabinet, and closet is filled to the brim (in a non-chaotic manner, of course). This means maximizing these small space even more. As Apartment Therapy suggests, “add hooks [under kitchen shelves] to hang towels and pot holders … use the inside of cabinet doors to hang up cleaning supplies, and consider expandable [drawer] racks or slide out entries.” You can also use thin, vertical slide-out spice racks from The Container Store to use between your fridge and wall space. Also, make use the of the space under your bed.

Just Get Rid of Some Stuff

Downsize lately? If not, it is time. All the creative storage space in the world won’t make up for a pack rat mentality. The best way to make a small space more beautiful, organized, and spacious is to cut the clutter. To kickstart your decluttering efforts, play the 10/10/10 game. Find 10 items you want to keep, 10 you want to donate, and 10 you can throw away. After you’ve accomplished that goal, move on to some of these quick tasks.

If there’s one main takeaway it is this: in a small home, any living space that isn’t primed for storage and organizational space is wasted space. Start by cutting down on the stuff you already have, get rid of single-purpose items, and then move on to finding creative ways to store your pared-down possessions.

7 Ways To Use Silk Flowers

Below are some creative ideas that many are using silk flowers for. Take a look at the images below to spark some ideas for your next project, wedding or special event. 

Decorate your hats with silk flowers.  

Take an otherwise boring summer hat and decorate it with a silk flower head or two. You can even go all the way around with the flowers to really give it some pop. Sunflowers and daisies seem to be the most popular during the summer but you can choose whichever flower catches your eye.  

Silk flower wreaths for your wall or door.  

By taking some twigs and tying them together you can weave the flower stems to them to create a beautiful wall or door piece.  

Silk flower headbands for birthdays or weddings.  

Similar to making a wreath you can do the same with a headband. Just measure the twigs around the persons head to give it the right fit and intertwine some flower stems to decorate. Once again your imagination is your only limit.  

Wrist Corsages.  

This is great for matching dresses on those special occasions such as weddings, proms, or a quinceanera. Just attach some silk flowers in a small bouquet to some ribbon and tie them on the wrist. It's as simple as that.  

Making silk flower arrangements and Art.  

Like the pictures above show how you can be as creative as you like with this use. Create your own special arrangement or purchase one for your home or office. Some creations are considered works of art and can be displayed in creative ways. It's as simple as inserting flower stems and greenery into a vase just like you would real flowers or being extremely creative like the silk flower dress for a storefront window display.  

Silk rose petals as wedding isle runners.  

Many indoor venues no longer allow real rose petals as they will stain carpets. This is where realistic looking silk rose petals come into play. Like the picture above they are most popular in an outdoor setting and can be use as a full runner or in conjunction with a traditional runner. Some even go as far as making intricate designs with different color rose petals for the most dramatic effect.  

I'm sure there are many more uses you can think of for silk flowers and we would love to here from you. Feel free to leave a comment with some of your ideas or projects you've done with artificial flowers.

Uses For Artificial Palm Trees

If you're like me then you hate to read through all the fluff of an article so let’s get right to the main point. What are some of the uses for artificial palm trees? Look at the images below to see some creative uses for fake palm trees.  

The obvious use is for home decor. Using something like this in your home or office can make your home a tropical paradise, soften the edges and give your room a total makeover without the high costs of a complete overhaul.  

Turn your living room or porch into a tropical oasis like above. this will make you feel like you never left the Bahamas. Watch out for the falling coconuts.  

Looking for a low maintenance solution to give your pool a tropical "resort" look? Our extensive collection of UV rated outdoor palm trees are perfect for this application. Plant them right into the ground or use a decorative planter and they will last you for years.  

Create a relaxing place to unwind with your favorite cocktail and a book with an artificial palm tree hammock. This is great for a sandy beach area next to your pool or next to the water if you happen to live on a lake. This person looks like they thought it would go well next to a highway. Oh well, to each his own.  

Turnign a fake palm tree into a post swim shower by the pool is a great way to give your yard a tropical twist. Kids love it and it also serves a dual purpose keeping the salt water or chlorine off your skin.
