You can disguise small objects in bins and baskets to keep them from making the shelves look cluttered. You can also turn shelves on their side or back to make them useful in other ways. Read on to learn how you might could use your shelves to organize just about anywhere in the house.

Using shelves horizontally may not be the first thing that comes to your mind, but if they’re sturdy enough to use this way, they can be a great addition to any room. Use them as a window seat.
