Bring on spring: stunning solutions for organised living

Spring has finally sprung, which means we can look forward to warmer weather, lighter evenings and beautiful blossoms.

It’s also that time of year when a good ol’ spring clean is in order. Love it or loathe it, a spring clean is a great way to freshen up your space, declutter your home and get yourself organised. It’s a job that simply needs doing, and you always feel so good afterwards.

To help you keep your home neat and tidy, we’ve put together a handy list of some smart storage solutions.

Shelf life

Shelving is a great way to free up floor space. Whether freestanding, wall-hung or modular, shelves can help you find a place for everything, and can be adapted to suit the way you live and the space you have.

Gridy Funghi Shelf

The Gridy Funghi Shelf is a stunning floating unit from Norwegian designers Gridy. Inspired by the ‘shelf fungus’ that grows horizontally out of trees in the woods, these playful shelves look great in many rooms around the home, whether it’s storing books in the living room or displaying spices in the kitchen.

String Pocket Shelving

For something a little more versatile, you can’t go wrong with String Pocket Shelving. Designed by Nils Strinning in the 1950s, this shelf was built specifically for paperback books, but it can be used to store almost anything. The Spring Pocket Shelf mounts easily to the wall and can also be purchased in modular elements to create a larger compositions, making it a clever, expandable small-space solution.

Cubist Shelf

If you’re looking for a modern and stylish shelving solution, the Cubist Shelf from Umbra is a great option. Inspired by Mondrian’s iconic compositions, this hanging shelf visually floats your favorite objects, and even includes a cute little cup for holding potted plants, pens and whatever else you need.

Hang loose

Another great way to save room is by bringing awkward corners and ‘dead’ space’ into use with smart storage solutions that hang from rails, on the back of doors, or in your wardrobe.

If space is at a premium, one way to keep your bedroom clutter-free is by using a hanging organiser, such as the Pocketa Hanging Organiser, which neatly and discreetly stores anything from towels to t-shirts.


You can also free-up some much-needed draw space by hanging scarves, belts or any other accessories on the Pendant Scarf Holder, which can be hung on the wall or in your wardrobe.Pendant Scarf Holder

Store more

It isn’t just the major rooms in your home that can be decluttered; you can organise everything from your desk to your vanity table.

Wheelie Bin Desk Tidy

As the saying goes, ‘tidy desk, tidy mind’, and a fun and quirky way to keep your desk organised is with our Liverpool Wheelie Bin Desk Tidy - a miniature version of the unmistakable purple wheelie bins you find throughout the city.

Loose change is often among the clutter found around the home. However, our Pineapple Money Box is a funky way to store your spare change, and also happens to be bang on trend this season.



With these great solutions, you’ll have your home looking spick and span in no time. What are your secrets to an organised home?

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.

Comment: I just wanted to say that Esther on the checkout in the L1 store made my day today she was so friendly
