I love finding organizers and storage things that aren’t only functional, but beautiful, too! Over the years, I’ve found so many great products on Amazon that have slowly taken my home to a beautiful aesthetic but also have allowed me to keep things so much more organized. Let’s be honest, the packaging that you get from the store usually isn’t cute, but you can’t put everything you buy into a pretty jar all at once. There are small ways you can incorporate this into your space though, so try out these 4 ways to elevate packaged items in your house! They’re simple, easy to do, and won’t break the bank. 

Elevate Your Coffee (or Tea) Bar

Instead of leaving all of my coffee products shoved in the pantry and my coffee maker in the corner, I created a coffee bar in my kitchen. Spending a little extra money on a coffee machine that I thought was beautiful has definitely been worth it since it ties in with all of my kitchen decor. I also grabbed some cute glass bottles and labels to add my coffee syrups into since the original packaging is SUCH an eye sore. Making these small changes and adding a coffee bar to our kitchen made such a huge difference in the organization, plus, it’s essentially kitchen decor!

Add Pretty Details to Your Bathroom

I think bathrooms are the place that can get most cluttered, it’s so easy to have random products everywhere on the counter. I definitely have dealt with this, so I added a few pretty details to my bathroom to keep it organized and to keep me motivated to keep it clean! I used refillable bathroom bottles to add all of my shampoo, soap, conditioner, and more that have matching labels you can customize. I also found things like a tissue box cover, and a ceramic canister to hold my bathroom products while making them look bright and beautiful.

Update Your Spice Containers

It may seem small, but it makes a huge difference! When I put together our DIY spice wall, I couldn’t imagine how much it elevated our kitchen and pantry. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to go back to having a ton of random spices shoved in my cabinet! This keeps things beautiful and organized so you’re not dealing with spices falling every time you grab for one. For everything I used for our DIY spice wall, check out this blog post.

Give Your Pantry a Refresh

Out of all of the ways to elevate packaged items, I think this one makes the biggest difference. It’s a bigger project so you’ll have to be ready to tackle it, but it is a game-changer. Take the time to organize your pantry and put food in different storage containers for a total pantry refresh! Last year I did this and it has made such a difference in storage, keeping things organized, and overall it’s so much prettier to look at. Add some glass containers, rattan baskets, and whatever else you like to really give it that elevated look. Here’s how I redid my pantry and everything I used!
