Everyone has that one friend or family member whose house is always tidy. What’s their secret? Do they have superpowers? It’s possible, but more likely, they’ve just discovered storage solutions that work. Adequate storage is the real secret for a tidy home. So here are some storage solutions for each room in the house.
Bathrooms tend to be small so it can feel like there’s never enough space there. Create more space by installing an over-the-toilet storage rack. An over-the-door hanging rack for towels and a magazine rack for bathroom reading are also good ideas.
A kitchen, no matter how big never has enough storage space but you can create a little more space by installing double cabinet shelves to double the surface area in each cupboard without physically adding any space.
Use a stackable can rack or other food storage organizer to make things easier on your pantry. You may not be able to add space but by being creative about how you store things, you can fit a lot more into the space.
The laundry room
Install a wall-mounted storage unit that can hold your ironing board, mops, and brooms. Here they’ll be easily accessible while still out of the way. It might also free up some space in a utility closet elsewhere in your home.
The entryway is the biggest clutter culprit because it’s where everyone drops their things when they come in. Get a shoe bench to store all those pairs of shoes and it’s a place for people to sit to put on shoes as well. Hang some coat hooks on the wall if you don’t have a coat closet by the entryway.
The master bedroom
There’s plenty of unused space under the bed so why not make use of it? You can spend some money on a bed with built-in storage where you can store spare sheets or other bedding. If you don’t want to replace your bed, you can get some long, but not too tall plastic bins to slide under the bed.
The master closet
Invest in some closet organizers and additional rods and shelves to make more room in your master closet. Don’t feel like you’re stuck with the closet your home came with. Who knows, it might save your marriage.
The kids’ rooms
Go with a multi-bin toy organizer rather than a chest that your children will have to dig through to find what they’re looking for. Installing some floating shelves is a great way to add space by storing some of their toys and books on the walls.
The living room
The living room is where all the belongings that people forgot to put away end up. So have a bin for each family member where miscellaneous items can pile up until it’s full and the owner must put things in their proper place.
The home office
A home office, especially a shared one, can become cluttered quickly with hastily scrawled notes, unfiled papers, and pens that don’t even work (it’s amazing how they multiply). So organize important papers in a desktop file sorter and purchase some inexpensive desk drawer organizers.

Measure the height from the floor to the top of the metal wall plate.
Follow our guide for baseboard heater cover measurement:
Any baseboard larger than 7 3/8" (188 mm) will be compatible with our standard cover.
Any measurement greater than 9 3/8" (238 mm) will fit our tall cover.
Measure from the bottom of the finned tube heating element to the top of the metal wall plate,
A measurement of 5 1/2" to 6 3/4" (140 mm – 172 mm) will fit our standard cover.
A measurement of 7 1/2" to 8 3/4" (191 mm – 222 mm) will fit our tall cover.
Measure the distance from the wall or the metal wall plate attached to the wall, to the outside of the finned tube heating element.
Any measurement of less than 3 1/8" (76 mm) inches from the wall will fit our
Any measurement of less than 3 1/8" (76 mm) inches from the wall will fit our tall cover.
EZ Snap™ Wall Widgets are used when your old or existing wall back plate has been removed or if you have to hang your new cover 1 inch or higher to bring them up to a height that will fit our installation guidelines. Just measure your overall desired height, subtract 1", drill a hole, preferably in a stud and attach it to the wall with the included screw.
EZ Snap™ Floor Fidgets easily raise your new covers ¾ inch to compensate for any ¾ inch floor (wood, tile, or other) that has been installed any time since your baseboard heater was originally installed. May be used for any reason when the overall height has been shortened and the total height is less than 7-½ inches for standard height or 9-½ inches for the TALL height EZ Snap™ BaseBoard Covers. Just use the self-tapping screws to secure them to the top of your existing wallplate.
EZ Snap™ Wall Contraptions are used when your wall back plate has been completely removed. EZ Snap™ Wall Contraptions receives your EZ Snap™ BaseBoard Cover and keeps your aluminum fin tube from sagging. These completely replace your wall back plate. To install, slide up from the bottom and make sure the top is at your desired height. Screw to the wall, then bend the front finger up to hold the fin tube in place.
Measure from wall to wall and subtract ½ inch (to allow for wiggle room when installing your new covers.) The endcaps can be pulled or slid ½ inch outward on either end to fit your existing length requirements. Choose 2 flush to wall end caps.
Measure the overall length of the existing unit with ends attached then subtract ½ inch (to allow for wiggle room when installing your new covers.) The endcaps can be pulled or slid ½ inch outward on either end to fit your existing length requirements. Choose 2 Closed or Open-end caps.
Measure from the corner to the end of the unit with ends attached then subtract ½ inch (to allow for wiggle room when installing your new covers.) The endcaps can be pulled or slid ½ inch outward on either end to fit your existing length requirements. Choose 1 Closed or Open-end & 1 flush to wall end cap.
Measure the left side from corner A to corner B (see diagram). Then subtract 3 inches for the 90 degree inside corner, then subtract another ½ inch (to allow for wiggle room when installing your new covers.) Repeat for the right side if also wall to wall. You need to subtract a total of 3½ inches from each side that is wall to wall. Choose your end caps.
Measure the left side from the corner of the wall to the end of the unit with ends caps. Then subtract 3 inches for the 90 degree inside corner, then subtract another ½ inch (to allow for wiggle room when installing your new covers.) Repeat for the right side. You need to subtract a total of 3½ inches from both left and right sides. Choose your end caps.
L-Shaped outside radiators ending in the middle of the wall:
Measure from outside corner of the wall A to the end of the radiator unit with end caps attached B, then subtract ½" (to allow for wiggle room when installing your new covers.)
Measure from outside corner of the wall to the corner of the wall, then subtract 1/2" (to allow for wiggle room when installing your new covers.)
Left leg - measure from the corner out to the end of the radiator subtract 3" for the corner and ½ (to allow for wiggle room when installing your new covers.)
Center leg - measure from corner to corner and subtract 3" for each corner a total of 6"
Right leg - measure from the corner out to the end of the radiator subtract 3" for the corner and ½" (to allow for wiggle room when installing your new covers.).
We recommend that you order covers a little longer than normal and cut them on site, as there are many opportunities for mistakes in measuring and installation. By cutting on site you can fit and cut to fit. The covers can be cut with a good quality jigsaw and a fine metal cutting blade.
Now that you’ve learned how to measure baseboard heaters,
you’re ready to order.
