Command hooks truly are the answer when it comes to decluttering your home in an effective and inexpensive manner. These hanging solutions can be stuck anywhere, and can be removed without causing any damage to the surface, thus making them perfect for those of you who are renting and want to bypass the drill. And with all the varying sizes and weight capabilities, the possibilities feel endless.
A quick tip before you start…
Before using these, though, make sure that you get good quality hooks, and make sure to follow the instructions carefully so that they adhere well and won’t harm the surface when finally removed.
As much as I love using command hooks, sometimes, the white plastic makes my fantastic organizational solution look a little… tacky. A great way to fix this problem is just to paint the hook. You can choose a color that blends into the surface, go for something bright and bold, glitter it up, or even go for a faux metal look.
It seems that it’s rather commonplace for us to have that one chaotic drawer in the kitchen that’s full of utensils – doesn’t it just take forever to find what you need? Use command hooks on the inside of cabinet doors to hang all your baking and cooking utensils, neatly.
