Not since Marie Kondo hit our screens a couple of years ago have we felt quite so excited about tidying up and storage. Yes, the decluttering queen might have (somewhat) faded from our memories, but the craze for home organisation has never been so keen (or chic).
The source of the latest craze? A brand new range by iDesign and The Home Edit at John Lewis has (and we quote), 'elevated organisation to an art form'. It's transparent, it calls for colour coding, and it's selling out fast (again). No wonder – prices start at £5, and there's nothing more expensive than £28 in the range. Read on to find out more... and where to use it.
Ooooh, who doesn't dream of kitchen storage this organised (above)? The range includes new spins on old favorites, such as divided turntables, clear modular canisters, bins, and labels.

Perfect in a children's bedroom, too, colour coding and clear storage can look good, and can help your child find everything quickly and easily (which should help with tidying up, too).
But don't just limit it to kitchens and kids' rooms: think your bedroom and bathroom (see below), too. But be prepared to do some maintenance for this range to stay looking neat.

‘The easiest way to maintain a space is by following the system on a daily basis,’ says Joanna of The Home Edit. ‘If you’ve done it right, you should have a system that works not only for the size of your space and amount of things but the function of that particular space. This means that any upkeep should be minimal and as simple as putting things back where they belong, or what we sometimes refer to as a “mini-edit” every few weeks.’
