Often a neglected part of the home, the storeroom tends to be almost like a dumping ground. You use it to store unwanted items, items you hardly use or just things you don't know what to do with!

If it gives you a headache every time you go to find and retrieve something, here are 4 essential components to organise your storeroom with, to save you time and energy in future:

1. Clear containers

Clear boxes make looking for that elusive item so much easier, and you won’t have to comb through boxes and boxes of things to find the one you’re looking for!

2. Adjustable shelves

These are ideal for small spaces, as you can adjust the shelves’ heights to suit different storage needs and wants. It’ll make the space look more presentable and organized!

3. Pegboards

Easily reach for your tools, craft supplies or even toys with pegboards that can also double up as a nice display in the storeroom. While less easy to find in shops here, try apps like Gumtree and Carousell.

4. Labelled baskets

If clear containers look too messy for you, try wicker or linen baskets and label them clearly.
