At home with Whitmor.
As you may have seen, back in December P and I moved into our very own place. Its hard to believe that it’s been five months already but between all the packing, unpacking and arranging, it’s finally starting to feel like home. From the kitchen to the bedroom (of which we have two), there’s a lot more space to decorate and keep tidy. Having never been the kind of person that considers myself to be meticulous, it has been quite the personal experiment to notice myself wanting a place for everything and everything in its place.
Enter Whitmor, the storage solution for all your needs from clothes to closet and shoes to shelving. The product offering of hangers, totes, and garment racks actually had me daydreaming about using Whitmor products in every corner of my home. They have laundry solutions for small spaces, mobile carts that would be just as cute in a closet as they would be as a bar cart, and storage organizers that bring an industrial look in an organized way. The possibilities are truly endless!
In exchange for a review, I was gifted two pieces, the Supreme Stacking Shelf and the Wood 3-Drawer Chest, and they couldn’t possibly fit in any better with our biggest need: organizing P’s closet. He’s a guy so, predictably, closet tidiness is less important to him whereas I like to see everything and ensure it isn’t getting wrinkled. I have an advantage with a bigger closet so there’s more room and options for organizational strategy but with P, it’s just one closet and everything in one space. Unless you can get creative with products like those that Whitmor creates.
Review: The Supreme Stacking Shelf is super industrial. With its chrome finish, it fits right into the masculine vibe of a man’s closet. From start to finish, it took about 15 minutes to assemble with all the necessary tools included. I found the instructions to be so clear that aside from my initial. read-through, I only had to go look over as I was assembling a few times which made for a very efficient process. It’s also entirely. customizable which means that there’s flexibility in regards to what height you set the levels for. Additionally, it clears up floor space and holds something as large as a duffel on top which allows for ampler items to be tucked underneath.
If the Supreme Stacking Shelf is an industrial organizing dream, the Wood 3-Drawer Chest is its slightly lumberjack-y cousin, made for keeping smaller items tidy and secure. Once again, assembly was quick and easy and took about 15 minutes (with breaks for wine because at this point, I was eating dinner while I put everything together). The instructions for this piece were also pretty fool-proof and well-labeled so I hardly ever reached for the wrong tool. While this piece wasn’t customizable, I absolutely love how versatile it is with the soft drawers and flat top. Alternatively, it would make for a cute nightstand or end table. I decided to organize P’s snapbacks (by color, of course) in each of the three drawers but they would also work well for socks, underwear, small toys, toiletries or other similar items around that size.
I am really excited to have these pieces, not just for a more stress-free browsing experience for P’s closet but because they are totally versatile pieces we could use in other ways if we wanted to. I’m glad I know about Whitmor’s product line for when we decide to attack organization in other spaces, rooms and closets and am so thankful they let me take these products for a spin!
Have you seen Whitmor on Amazon? The price points on their organization solutions are right on for novices with knick-knacks to Marie Kondo. A huge thank you to the Whitmor team for sending me these products in exchange for a review.
