How to Keep Your Shelves Tidy (And Pretty)

September  3, 2015

It's Storage & Organization Week here at Food52! We're sharing our best tips for keeping your home in tip-top shape.

Today: Make your shelves shine.

You have some empty shelves and some things to store. But how to make it look nice? Arrange items thoughtfully: Fold linens carefully, mix tall objects like pitchers or vases with small objects or trinkets like this oyster salt cellar, and place flatter objects (like a pretty print or trivet) behind other items. Work with like colors and you'll avoid having a too-busy hodgepodge.
