Going into the new year there are many things that are always on my list to revisit. I try to stay on top of my tasks for around the house, but days get busy and those things get pushed down the list. One of those things, which I actually enjoy doing, is home organization.

5 Ways to Use a Credenza

When it comes to home organization, the right furniture in the right place is essential. Over the weekend, my husband and I were discussing things that still need a place to go and how to organize it. No matter what room we were talking about, getting a new piece of furniture seemed like the solution.

That got me thinking about ways we can use furniture we already have. A few months ago, we got a Credenza from Sauder. With all the adjustable shelves, doors, and drawer, there are many ways it can be used for organized around the house.

1. Entryway or foyer: We first set up the credenza in our home entryway. The space was in need of something, and the piece fit perfect. It is a great place to display pictures, hold a few kids games (hidden in the drawers), and a ‘catch-all’ can me added to the top to hold keys, glasses, etc.

2. Buffet Table: Placed in a dining room, the credenza can hold numerous dishes, trays, and food accessories. When guests are over, a dinner spread or appetizers can easily be placed on the top for easy access.

3. Beverage Bar: This would be great also in a dining room, bar area, game room, or kitchen to hold beverages and glasses. I think it is best to take out most shelves and place different pitches, ice buckets, jars, and more. There is plenty of ways to set it up for a self-serve area for guests.

4. Toy Storage / Playroom: If we had a play room (besides the kids’ rooms) I would consider using the credenza there. Puzzles, bins, books, and more could fit on the piece and displayed nicely. The kids could easily access all of it and I wouldn’t have to worry about the quality of the furniture getting ruined from the kids.

5. Home Office: This was what I originally got the credenza for, as I ordered it at the time of our office remodel. From notebooks to binders to tablets to decor, there is a spot for everything. The bottom right drawer can also hold hanging files (which is essential in my office organization).

As the credenza is still in our entryway, I am still considering moving it. There are just so many great ways to use it. Or maybe I should just order a new one?
