Organize with These Simple Storage Hacks

When it comes to rearranging storage areas, you can never have too many tricks up your sleeve. Thanks to Taylor Morrison Phoenix homeowner and home décor blogger Stephanie at Somewhat Simple, here are 10 easy organization hacks to make more room out of less space!

Get Down the Basics

Don’t fall victim to paralysis by analysis. There are 4 easy steps to organizing any space:

  • Clear – Empty the space completely to start over with a clean slate.
  • Clean – Scrub away dirt & grime with a bucket of soapy water.
  • Sort – Figure out what’s staying, what’s going and what’s headed to the trash.
  • Style – Put everything back and make it pretty!

Baskets ‘o Linen

Organizing your linen closet is as simple as buying a collection of baskets. Plastic, wicker, metal? Whatever floats your boat!

Toss or donate sheets & towels you no longer use and arrange your baskets by room and type. Many Taylor Morrison floor plans, like the Courbet, feature convenient linen closets in the first floor.

Say “Yes” to a Sewing Room

Some new construction homes offer a dedicated bonus room for arts & crafts. Other floor plans require your sewing table be part of a multi-use space.

Whatever your set up, this post is jam packed with exciting ideas to cleverly arrange your creative arena.

Declutter Your Paperwork

Purchase a new Charlotte home like the Southport and you’ll enjoy a quiet study to stash away all those manuals & warranties you never know what to do with.

It’s a piece of cake:

  • Pick up a few 3-ring binders filled with plastic sheet protectors.
  • Organize your documents with one category per binder (electronics, kitchen gadgets, tools, etc.)
  • Slap a label on the spine and voila!


Esplanade floor plans like Pallazio in Palmetto, FL are renowned for their sumptuous owner’s suites with luxurious master bath. Nip that cluttered vanity in the bud by assembling this nifty make-up organizer.

A More Efficient Bathroom Cleaning Strategy

Whether you’re looking for a new Colorado home in the mountains or a luxury beachside retreat like a Lighthouse floor plan home, cleaning the bathroom is a fact of life.

Somewhat Simple recommends putting together a cleaning caddy to keep all your supplies in one place.
