Clothes + Closets
It’s all about working with square spaces and utilizing your folding space to the max. Boxes are great for creating support for small items such as socks. Drawers dividers also work well to create clean lines inside the drawers and they give support to slinkier items like active wear. Don’t underestimate the beauty of matching hangers — they seriously cut down on visual clutter in the closet. For darker closet, the white color will add brightness. When selecting products, keep in mind natural fibers, like bamboo or cloth, will allow clothes to breath better.

When it comes to organizing a bathroom drawer, it’s all about finding the right size containers. Often times, small boxes from previous purchases (such as jewelry or electronics) can be repurposed to collect small items. If you don’t already have the right size box on hand, look for some simple containers and trays that will fit in your space. Keep in mind the materials of the containers should compliment the items that will be contained — meaning liquid items should be in containers you can clean, like plastic or bamboo. Paper or cloth containers could work those for items that won’t spill.

Kitchen + Pantry Komono
Of all the komono categories, the kitchen and pantry items are the place where acquiring the right containers makes a big difference to maintaining a tidy space. There are lots of “sub-categories” when it comes to organizing the kitchen and a wide range of items — small, medium, and large miscellaneous things like utensils and gadgets, bigger appliances like blenders and mixers, and don’t even get us started on the pantry! Depending on the area you are trying to sort, you will want to switch up the containers. Decide whether or not decanting (emptying the food into clear containers) works for your situation — sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. If it doesn’t matching containers can cut down on the visible clutter to help group like items. Again, aim to work with square spaces, match the material to what it’s containing, measure first, and make it fun! !
