New Home Design Hacks

After you’ve completed the change of address cards, making your home unique ranks high on the to-do list. Make the most of your new space with these smart ideas.

Label Everything
Having a label maker during the unpacking process will help you establish an allocated place for every item in your new home and keep everyone in the know on what goes where. The latest generation of label makers has a wide array of colors, fonts, patterns, sizes and tapes to choose from. Label your electronics, cords, cabinets, boxes and more.

Corral Your Cords
Hide unsightly cords to your chargers, lamp, TV and other electronics by hanging a basket under a table or desk. All you’ll need is an inexpensive wire basket, a few cup hooks and clear cord organizing clips!

Line Your Shelves
Add a splash of style to your storage space (and prevent small items from falling through gaps if you have wire shelves) with shelf liners. Available in a wide variety of colors, patterns and even scents, you’re sure to find one that matches your personal style.

Create a Pet Organization Station
Help your pets get settled into their new home and help yourself stay organized by creating a station to house their toys, treats and other necessities.
