Start getting organized in the spaces that bug you the most!
If you’re like most people, some areas of your home are organized enough for comfort, while other areas seem to be perpetual stress generators. It’s possible that there’s an impossible amount of stuff in the offending room, or it could be that clutter results from inadequate storage. Custom storage solutions from a custom closet company can eliminate clutter and restore claim using three easy steps.
1. Enhance existing storage
Clothes closets, hall closets, pantries, cabinets, and linen closets are all there for a reason: to store stuff. Unfortunately, often the space is configured in a way that makes it only marginally effective. Custom closet storage systems can transform any closet into a fully functional space with cabinets, shelves, drawers, shoe racks, and accessories. You’ll love an organized closet with a place for everything, eliminating closet clutter.
A pantry of just rows of shelves can become a jumbled mess of cans, boxes, bottles, and bags. Organizing with a combination of enclosed cabinets, drawers, adjustable shelves, and pull-out bins will turn a challenging pantry into highly efficient storage for food and supplies.
2. Implement new storage options
Once you’ve maximized the storage you have, it’s time to decide where additional storage is needed. Built-in cabinetry is becoming more popular to provide storage where there was none and for a clean and modern aesthetic. Garages, empty hallways, under-stair alcoves, entryways, laundry rooms, and great rooms can all have unstructured space when it comes to functional storage. Custom cabinets and floating shelves will perfectly fit the space you have and provide more storage in less space than bulky furniture.
You may find this step unnecessary if the first two have solved your cluttered home problem. But once you’ve maximized space and implemented additional storage options, if you’re still plagued with unwanted clutter and excess, it’s time to declutter. There are many views on clutter and decluttering, but for an easy solution, label boxes: “Sell,” “Trash,” and “Donate.” Go room by room, sorting out any items that you don’t want to keep. If a garage sale or eBay listing isn’t your thing, just focus on donating or trash and you’ll make a clean sweep of clutter and your favorite charity very happy.
