Outdoor Organization Tips
You certainly do not want to spend the entire summer organizing your outdoor spaces, but rather enjoying them. The Shelving Store has a variety of outdoor storage options to make the most of your backyard.
One area that often needs organization is your deck. A simple way to add style and organization to your deck or patio is to add a Epoxy Coated Chrome Wire Shelving Unit. Our Epoxy coated chrome wire shelves are available in black and white to match your patio set. The epoxy coating is ideal for outdoor use, preventing the chrome from scratching your wooden deck. Plus the epoxy coating is weather resistant and wont rust during rain storms.
Your Epoxy Chrome Shelving Unit is perfect for storing patio furniture cushions, grilling supplies, beach towels, sunscreen and other summertime essentials. It will quickly clean up your patio area by offering one place for all outdoor supplies. This means more room for extra chairs, coolers and walking space for your guests.
Another common area of disorganization in your yard is the pool area. Pool areas can be quickly cleaned up to prevent falling and tripping accidents by using our bright, colorful lockers. Bright lockers are perfect for poolside storage, offering a secure way to store hazardous pool chemicals, pool cleaning tools, and of course guest towels, beach bags, and pool toys. The bright colors will add a summery feel to your pool area too!
Garage Organization Tips
When we clean and organize other areas of our homes, we often toss items we don't know what to do with or items to be donated out in the garage. Once items are in the garage, often called "the black hole," we forget items are there and our garage becomes messy very quickly.
Additionally, garages house all sorts of things from bikes, sporting equipment, our summer boat, chemicals and yard supplies, tools and our cars. With so much stuff, it's important to clean your garage to ensure everything will still fit year after year.
The first step in organizing your garage is the most difficult. You'll need to sort through your clutter and decide what actually belongs in the garage and what does not. Once this task is complete, the next steps are easy.
Divide the items you will be storing in your garage into categories such as yard tools, chemicals, sporting goods, and any other categories that you deem necessary. Next you'll need to section off your garage and store the appropriate items in the appropriate section.
If you need garage storage products, The Shelving Store has a variety of products designed especially for your garage. The Schulte Garage Line contains specialty storage products designed to store heavy, bulky and obscure items found in your garage.
GO Garage Boxes can be installed to store chemicals, hand tools and other items that need to be kept out of reach of children. GO Boxes can also be used to store sporting equipment, such as gloves, pads and other smaller protective gear. If you need to store sports balls and keep them from rolling around, invest in our inexpensive ball claws, which will store any sports balls right on the wall.
If you have several lawn and garden tools, utilize the wall space on your garage and invest in a garage grid with various hooks and racks to store these items. Hanging shovels, rakes and other tools will keep the tools from being damaged, and will keep children from accidentally hurting themselves on sharp edges.
Chrome wire shelving, and Schulte Garage Worktops also help create flat storage areas in your garage where storage boxes and bins can be easily stored. Sturdy, Chrome Wire Shelving is great for holding to tool boxes, tackle boxes and any other item that can fit atop a shelf. The Garage Worktop creates a flat storage space, and can double as a work area for any small repair job.
Cleaning and organizing your garage is easy with the right products from The Shelving Store.

Kitchen Organization Tips
Kitchens are often one of the most disorganized rooms in the house, because they are constantly getting messed up. Consider the following: You use the kitchen to prepare 3 or more meals each day, you probably wash your dishes several times per week, if not per day, plus you re stock your kitchen with groceries at least once a week. All these tasks require something to be cleaned or organized. If you are cooking for large parties it can be even more cluttered as you try and make room for over-sized serving pieces and extra food items.
Luckily, The Shelving Store has a variety of products to help you maximize the space in your kitchen and help keep your kitchen as organized as possible as you utilize it throughout the day.
If you are a frequent entertainer or have a large family, consider purchasing a Linon Kitchen Island. The Linon Kitchen Island has many uses throughout the kitchen. Kitchen Islands can serve as a counter add on, as they have a flat top surface along with drawers and storage shelves to store kitchen items. All kitchen islands have wheels, so they can easily be moved around your kitchen as you prepare a meal. You can also use them as a serving tray, stacking food atop the flat top then wheeling it to the room where your guests are. Kitchen Islands can be stored in pantries, or other areas of your home when not in use.
Another great way to free up counter space in your kitchen is to purchase a wine rack! Small counter top wine racks take up valuable storage space on your counter, and then you can purchase more wine when it's on sale, and have a place to put it! We have a variety of wine racks to choose from, including popular Chrome Wire Wine Racks, and stylish Linon Wine Racks and solid wood Catskill Wine Racks.

Place your chrome wire wine rack in your basement or pantry area, where you can store bulk food and other items. Store anything from extra canned goods to serving platters and other large kitchen gadgets that you do not use on a daily basis. If you have items that you feel will fall through the vents, add a chrome wire shelf liner to your unit. These are inexpensive accessories that can help versify your storage space.
Dorm Room Organization Tips
In small spaces such as college dorm rooms, organization is key in making the most of your living area. With several college students sharing a living area with such an abundance of belongings, it's important to keep possessions organized.
