Charging drawer | Kitchen Studio of NaplesIf you don’t have one of these charging drawers in your home office or kitchen you probably have to deal with a lot of cables sitting around.

The biggest problem with loose cables is that they are tend to move around, get tangled and mixed up at times. If you mix up the charger intended with for your tablet with on meant for a cell phone if will not draw as much amperage and it will take a lot longer to charge.

Fortunately, there are some easy fixes for keeping your cables organized and this little DIY project is very affordable since you might have some of these items already on hand.

The Binder Clip

Clamping a binder clip to the edge of a table or shelf is a super quick and easy way to organize your charging cables. There are no holes to be drilled and they can be adjusted at any time.

Pen Holder

My favorite postal station used to use this to keep a pen handy for customers signatures. A great alternative use is for keeping cables and chargers organized and in place. This type of holder comes with either a magnetic or adhesive back.

The hands on LEGO Minifigures are the perfect size for holding the cables for your cellphone or tablet devices. Thicker cables such as the charger for a MacBook Pro will expand the hands of your figures but it should hold.

Sugru, a self-setting silicone rubber, seems to be a favorite choice for mounting the LEGO Minifigures.

This hole is fairly small but I like the idea of the standing LEGO for keeping charging cables from slipping through bigger grommet openings in desks – plus you can see your cute desk buddy more easily.

I’ve always credited playing with LEGO blocks as the start to my interest in Interior Design and Architecture. I still love them and find it hard to keep my hands off when I help the nieces and nephew put together their sets.

They include tips on organizing various types of spaces from a small hall closet to a craft room.

Many readers will find the Frequently Asked Questions area helpful. Topics range from how to hire the right designer to how long installation might take.

The online photo gallery has some very nice images but many categories have no photos at all. Hopefully this will change soon.

Vance indicates that they will soon be adding links to help consumer’s find closet design professionals.

Example of tip:
*Use pull-out shelves for easy access. Otherwise, narrow depth shelves should be used so things are not hiding in the back. You will never use them!

For many of my clients the closet is no longer a dark cluttered area behind closed doors.  It’s a showplace.
