Sometimes you need a little kick in the pants to do something you don’t want to do.
For me, Home Organization Projects are one of those things I just don’t feel like doing without some outside force telling me I really should.
Sometimes that outside force is some beautiful inspiration from Pinterest.
Sometimes it’s all the sheets falling on top of me when I open the linen closet.
Today it was Pinterest inspiration. So I thought I’d share.
11 Home Organization Projects I Should Be Doing at My Own House
These projects span almost the whole house. The idea is if you can do one project at a time, it’s less overwhelming and you’ll eventually have it all done!
One caution! Do NOT. I repeat, DO NOT start a project before you finish the first project. It doesn’t matter where you start, but two organization projects happening at once will devolve into chaos.
I love this basement. Mine does not look like this.
It’s still basement-y, which is fine, it is a basement, but it looks like a well cared for store room for your things that happen to not be out on display right now.
You can find the full project at So Much Better With Age.
Any one of us with children knows this playroom doesn’t look like this all the time.
You wouldn’t even want it to. You want your kids to play and make messes.
But when you have organization like this, clean up is SO much easier and looks beautiful when the play is done. If playing ever gets “done”.
You can find this project on Chesapeake Chic.
Bathroom Linen Shelves
I love when form and function come together in a beautiful way like these linen shelves.
The shelves are beautiful to look and they are housing all of your “Stuff”.
That bathroom is unique because usually most of that stuff is put away OR it is OUT and looking very messy. Here it all feels cozy and homey.
You can find this bathroom organization project on Elle Claire Inspired.
Glasses are a problem in my house. There is never enough room for all of the receptacles for drinking liquids from.
Coffee mugs. Glasses. Tea cup. Wine glasses. Plastic cups.
This solution isn’t exactly right for my home, but it’s great inspiration.
You can check out the Glasses Cupboard organization on The Inspired Home.
Tidy Family Room
The family room is where you do family things. It’s about being together.
No one likes being together in a cluttered, messy family room. They want to be in a family room like this one. With plenty of room and storage for all the fun family things you want to do.
You can find this organized Family Room project on Chris Loves Julia.
What I love about this organized office is the different options for organization.
There’s a super cool tall cork wall. There’s a rolling cart. There are drawers. There are baskets.
Organizing doesn’t have to be boring. Find the receptacle that makes for what needs to be organized and go for it!
You can find the details of this Organized Office on One Crazy House.
Do you think it might be possible that if your cleaning supplies were not only this organized but also this pretty to look at that you might enjoy cleaning just a molecule more?
So therefore, since I will take every sniff of enjoyment I can get out of cleaning, this project makes perfect sense.
You can see more of these organized, beautiful cleaning supplies on I Spy DIY.
I am not embarrassed to tell you that my linen closet is an unmitigated disaster.
I don’t fold sheets. I just SHOVE them into the closet because I don’t want to deal with them.
If I had this set up, I could at least shove them into baskets.
You can find the details of this project on a Bird and Bean.
Organized Craft Supplies
I don’t think I’ve ever known a crafter who was a natural organizer.
And that’s ok. It doesn’t have to come naturally for you to become good at it.
A simple set of bins like this one will motivate you to get and stay organized.
You can find the details of this project on Unskinny Bop.
Coffee Station Love
If you love coffee and tea and you are a grown adult then you should have a place that is like this coffee station in your home.
It’s kind of like an organized altar to coffee. You want that, right? It’s a ritual more than just a drink, your coffee.
It deserves something special like this.
You can find the details of this Coffee Station project on I Heart Organizing.
A command center is a brilliant idea if you want an organized home. There are so many things that come in and out of the house each day and so many dates and projects to stay on top of.
The command center is the place to do that.
This one is my favorite, beautiful and functional.
You can find the details of this command center on At Charlotte’s House.

Remember my warning before you get started.
ONE organization project at a time.
