In a very crowded house, the only thing that can help you is having a lot of pieces of wooden storage furniture, so you can organize lots of stuff. All the things can find their place in a storage furniture if the compartments are perfectly calculated on the required sizes.
All you have to do is to design your storage organizer according to your needs and taking into account the space where you want to put it. You have to choose the right wood (you have a lot of alternatives: pine, fir, oak, beech, ash, walnut and so on).
You can easily build the wood panels using some 4-way panel clamps. Then, cut the panels to the needed dimensions and then assemble them like a lego game. Everything can be a child’s play. The only thing you have to do to look perfect is to sand the joints, to beveled the edges and to protect the wood with water based primer and varnish. If you choose to color them, you can stain them with water based colored stain before applying primer and varnish, or you can just paint them.
And here are some examples of pine wood cabinets with a lot of shelves and drawers which will store as many things in a relatively small space.
