How to Organize When Downsizing

roll out drawers

Whether you want to make your life simpler and streamlined or you are a new empty-nester, downsizing can be both exciting and daunting. You might find that the biggest issue is how to purge the things you no longer need and organize the things you do need in your new, smaller home. ShelfGenie of Alberta in Edmonton offers unique storage solutions that will make your home more functional and organized room by room.


A smaller home likely means a smaller kitchen and less drawer and cabinet space. This is where custom roll out drawers can really come in handy. Everything you have stored in your drawers and cabinets can be easily accessed by sliding out the shelf or drawer to reach the items in the back. That means less stacking, moving things around and reaching while trying to find things in the kitchen. Plus, having pull-out shelving on your lower cabinets will also reduce the strain of bending over to get to the back of the cupboard, making your kitchen safer to use while maximizing its storage space.


Having a custom closet in the bedroom will allow you to better store and more easily access your day-to-day items. You’ll always be able to find that favourite pair of shoes and at the end of the day, know exactly where everything gets neatly put away. Custom closet solutions allow you to get creative with small spaces and you’ll be amazed at how much extra storage you will have after working with ShelfGenie.


Now that the kids have flown the nest, you probably don’t need to store as much food in the pantry! Where you used to need ample space for cereal boxes and lunch snacks, you can now organize the pantry to suit your new, downsized life. With pull-out shelves and handy storage bins, you can access everything in the pantry easily.

Entry Way

Whether your downsized home has a mud room or a simple entry way, keeping this area organized and functional will reduce clutter and stress. Install a few hooks for your jackets and bags or customize your entry way closet with roll out drawers and shelving to hide your personal items and other supplies.
