4 Ways to Prep Your Home for a Stress-Free Summer

May 13, 2024 | Closet,Garage,Holidays & Seasonal |

Tis the season for garden parties, bathing suits, and outdoor activities! Whether you’re planning on hosting or just enjoying the warm weather, Horderly is here to help get you set up for a successfully organized summer.

Get Party Ready

To prepare for the outdoor festivities, we love organizing our disposable entertaining items into these wooden ribbed bins. Not only are they super cute for the season but they get bonus points for being made with a sustainable material! These are great for storing disposable plates, bowls, cups, napkins, and even disposable cutlery sorted into these tall bin inserts!

Time for A Closet Swap!

Whether you have a second closet for season swaps or you’re working with one space, you can easily rearrange your closet based on the season. Season swaps are a great way to make what you’re currently using easy to see and access! Switch around your hanging rod by swapping heavier outerwear, like cardigans and jackets, to the back so you can bring skirts, shorts, and dresses forward. Save space in your closet using slim hangers and don’t forget to label your categories with rod dividers! This is especially helpful when you are making seasonal changes that shift the layout of your closet. We also recommend swapping your winter accessories or scarf drawer for bathing suits. If you are storing these on shelves, contain them in a bin to create a drawer effect for easy access. Lastly, swap out your winter hats for beach hats using hooks, and your booties for sandals on stackable shoe racks.

Organize Your Bar Area

There’s never been a better time to transform your bar area into a refreshing oasis! We love displaying glassware on open shelves or in cabinets. We typically will store heavy items like liquors in lower cabinets. These stackable wine organizers are wonderful for maximizing the height of your cabinets and can double as water bottle storage in your kitchen! Store bar accessories in drawers using dividers and organizers to make finding what you need quick and easy!

Having a functionally organized garage can help reduce stress and save time for enjoying outdoor activities this season. Weathertight bins are a great option for storing categories on shelves. We love building custom Elfa storage to maximize tricky garage spaces. If you are looking for a custom build-out, reach out and one of our designers will make your organizing dreams a reality! Metro shelves are a great option if you do not want to build out but still want to add shelving. For our sports lovers, checkout this heavy duty sports storage rack for sorting gear. This ceiling mount lift is great for kayaks and bikes. For boards and skis checkout these two wall mounts.
