3 Ways To Organize Around Your Staircase

It’s very likely there are a few places around your home that collect clutter including the stairs. Since stairs are a high-traffic spot, you can easily nix this area as a dump-zone and create an organized space for important things when running out the door. I have 3 ways to organize around your staircase you’ll want to try!

Add A Table

A simple console table or small table at the bottom of the stairs is a great way to corral go-to necessities in one place. Use things like small baskets for keys and wallets. You can also use decorative paper trays for homework or mail. You can also try bins underneath to store scarves, purses and even pet leashes and clothing.

Add A Bench

Benches come in various sizes and will fit great against the railings for extra storage. They can also add a convenient place to take off shoes. Storage benches with bins or drawers are a great option to store backpacks, purses, and other outdoor gear. If you’re not sure whether or not a bench will fit, mark the size of your area with painter’s tape. This will help to ensure that it won’t be in the way because great organizing solutions only work if they’re functional in everyday living.

Organize with Baskets

If you’re tight on space and don’t have the option to add an extra piece of furniture, try adding a basket. A simple basket or two on the stairs will not only remind you and your family of important things they’ll need when they leave, but they will also serve as a reminder of things that need to be put away.

The staircase in your home is just one spot where things can build up with clutter. These 3 ways to organize around your staircase are quick and simple so you can be organized in no time!

We have a bench near our staircase but I should add a basket instead of throwing things that need to go up on the first landing.

That’s a good idea and it removes the opportunity for someone tripping, too!

My staircase becomes a cluttered mess. When I clean the rest of the house what needs to go upstairs gets put on the stairs and stays there until I MAKE my kids take it to their rooms. I really need to put baskets there. I love that idea!
