Keeping your jewelry organized will ensure that you can always find the pieces that you want to wear quickly and easily. There are many options when it comes to organizing jewelry, but creating custom jewelry organization in the drawers of a small dresser or nightstand can make organizing large quantities of jewelry quick and easy. The guide below walks you through a few things to take into consideration when choosing the jewelry drawer inserts you want to use in your dresser or nightstand.

Consider the Size of the Drawers

The first thing you need to do is to consider how large the drawers of the dresser or nightstand are. You need to be sure that you can make the most of the drawer space by choosing inserts that will take up a majority of the space in the most efficient way possible. Measure the length, width, and depth of the drawers you plan to use to organize your jewelry so you can easily determine the size inserts you can use.

Consider the Jewelry You Need to Store

Next, you need to consider the jewelry that you plan to store in the drawers so that you can know what type of inserts to get. There are inserts available that are designed with slots in them for rings, some for bracelets, and some that even have small slots built into them for storing earrings with ease. Determine how many of each type of jewelry you have so that you can know if you need more of one type of insert than another. You can then use pieces of cardboard to cut out the dimensions of each type of insert you need to buy to see how you can arrange them in each drawer to ensure that they will fit into the available space nicely.

Consider the Type of Insert You Want to Use

Finally, you need to consider the type of insert that you want to use for your jewelry organization. There are some inserts that are made from plastic that allow you to store a lot of jewelry at one time but do not necessarily store the jewelry in a stylish way. If you want to be able to open each drawer and have the jewelry be stored in a visually appealing way, you may want to choose plush organizers that are lined with velvet. The velvet keeps the jewelry from being scratched, while the plush padding of the organizers keeps each piece on display until you are ready to wear it. The plush organizers are great for storing rings and bangles because you can store them upright rather than lying on their side.

After ordering the organizers, you should be able to start using them as soon as they arrive to your home. Having all of the jewelry organized will also allow you to keep better track of it because you can look in the drawers and easily notice if a piece is missing.
