The New Year is well underway and many of us are still trying to keep all of our New Year’s Resolutions including ones to organize your home.  A common resolution for many was to become more organized in their home. If this was one of your resolutions, have you made steps to reach your goal? Are you still finding yourself spending too much time in your closet searching for something to wear or standing in front of your pantry wondering where an ingredient for dinner disappeared? If you have not started on your organization project yet due to concerns over time and money, there are many solutions that are available.

Many storage options were on display at the International Builders Show with budget, easy installation and convenience in mind. Several shelving products include shelves that are easy to install, affordably priced and with convenient movable shelves. Movable shelves can be ideal for children’s closets allowing shelves to move up as your children grow. Movable shelves offer homeowners amazing flexibility to update their storage areas as their needs change.

Two products on display featuring these flexible options were ClosetMaid®’s adjustable ShelfTrack™ system and Rubbermaid®’s FastTrack™ design with Free Slide shelving.  Both systems are available in white wire shelving and the ShelfTrack™ system is available in a Satin Chrome finish while the FastTrack™ design is available in a Satin Nickel finish. Both systems allow for easy installation with limited required tools with most projects easily completed over a single weekend.

If wire shelving is not what you are looking for, wood storage systems with a variety of finishes are also available offering much more custom options for your home. Wood systems may require professional installation, longer installation time and a larger monetary investment.
