Bathroom medicine cabinets can be a terribly misused storage cabinet. These cabinets are full of cold medications, pill samples, sun screens, bug repellents, allergy medications, etc, etc. I bet that half the over the counter medications found in most bathroom storage cabinets is outdated. Empty that cabinet. Check the dates on everything and dispose of all outdated medications. Some medications are important to have on hand like Ibuprofen and anti-histamines. Make sure you have a new supply of these and get rid of everything old.
If you organize your storage systems, I guarantee that your house will quickly look less cluttered. Not only will your house be less cluttered but it will feel lighter. Organization systems are easy to put in place but first you must purge and rid yourself of old unused items. Use your cabinet storage capacity wisely and you will be happy that you did. The use of closet organizer systems and cabinet organizer systems will save you a lot of hassle.
For reasons I could never understand some rooms were built without closets or storage cabinets. In the case of such rooms storage options will have to be added. The choice of added storage will depend on your tastes and budget. There are fabulous antique armoires and storage cabinets that can be picked up from boutique antique collections. Check your Yellow Pages for the contact information of antique dealers in your area. Equally functional and much less expensive options can be found at stores like Ikea or Home Depot or Lowes.
Storage cabinets are quite handy when it comes to needing extra storage space. They can come in many forms, such as for DVD storage or anything that could help you organize your things and help clear away clutter. There are storage units for hazardous materials as well. You can have them installed as wall fixtures or let them stand on their own so that they can be easily repositioned.
Offices also use metal storage cabinets in many different applications. There is, of course, the basic filing cabinet, either 2 drawer or 4 drawer. The modern office, however, has many more options available. Everyone has seen the huge filing system in their doctors offices; long lines of open or closed shelf space, operated by a hand wheel to get to one shelf or another. If every shelf were stationary, they would take up too much floor space, which is often limited. By using cabinets that are moveable in this way, precious floor space is conserved. There is also a storage cabinet that is ubiquitous but not necessarily obvious: the mail cart. Some are made of wire baskets, but others are fully cabinets that are capable of being locked.
