At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we want to help you and your home get organized this season! In combination with bringing things in from the outside and taking out boots and heavier coats for the colder weather, we tend to get a bit messy. You may not feel you have time to waste arranging this season with the previous, but it could be easier than you think. At Sturbridge we have many ways to get your country home back on track.
Let’s first start with the entryway, as this is likely to be in some need. Get those coats off the bench and up on to a strong and sturdy coat rack. Try our Coat Hook Shelf that offers both a place to hang your hat and a display space on top; decorative, yet functional! Or for a smaller statement, consider our Shaker Peg Rack that offers options of 4, 6 or 8 pegs to suit your individual needs. Now what about shoes, scarves, dog leashes and umbrellas? Make the entrance to you home simple and clutter free with Sturbridge’s Wicker & Wood Totes. Our totes are made of rattan material and are then woven in a herringbone pattern, followed by a framing of lined wood for a durable and attractive storage solution.
Moving on to the kitchen, we all know your trash can is overflowing! Save space and time by choosing a large Utility Bin that you won’t have to empty every day. Our Utility bin is sturdy with a tight fitting lid to contain odors. The bin holds 13 gallon kitchen bags and could also be used as a handy recycling bin. Oh P.S. it’s also made right here in Maine! Other kitchen organization solutions include our Boothbay Votive Baskets that have a simple design and come in various shapes to display fruit, bread or decoratives. And who could be without a Key & Letter Rack to get unwanted mail and bulky keys off the counter? Our Key and Letter Rack comes in your choice of black, red or stain.
Other areas of the house can always use a little sprucing up too and simple furniture solutions can make a big difference. For example our Catalog End Table that’s perfect for storing various items and also offers a quality table surface. Store all of your media in one designated area with Sturbridge’s Mission Media Storage Cabinet. A solution for every room would be our Simplify Basket Set (as seen above) that comes with four sizes to store everything from your favorite blankets to your current reading materials.
And we couldn’t forget about the bathroom! To condense items in a room that for most is the smallest room in the house, we offer a couple of answers. Sturbridge’s Enamelware Tank Topper offers tissue storage as well as room for two rolls of toilet tissue; giving you a clean vintage look. The Iron Towel Wall Rack will coordinate nicely with your tank topper as it offers the same antique appeal, coming in your choice of black or white.
We hope these ideas are helpful for you, your home and your family in creating an open and welcoming space, as autumn quickly approaches.
