To avoid feeling overwhelmed, we highly recommend planning and breaking down organization projects into manageable and actionable tasks. Assign yourself tasks that are clear, concrete and can be finished in a set amount of time. It is tempting to want to take on a large amount of organizing at once. For example, instead of setting a goal such as “organize the garage and laundry room”, it can be more helpful to pick a smaller and more specific task related goal. A more manageable goal could be “organize the tools and building supplies I have in the garage”. Then, this task can be divided into sub-tasks. You might realize that you need to get rid of certain supplies or that you don’t have adequate storage space. Our experienced designers can help you strategize solutions like a customized garage workbench or countertop.
When you choose a new space to work on, imagine yourself going to that area of your home and how you would like things to be. Think about the steps you take when you do laundry in the laundry room, work in the garage or even when you get dressed. Which items do you use most often? What needs to stay out of reach of children and pets, like cleaning supplies or delicate jewelry? Which items need a specific hook or rod? It is helpful to keep items you use frequently at eye- or waist-level (such as bed linens on the middle shelves of your linen closet). Storage in this area is the easiest to reach and see.
Once you have a system, it can help you develop a routine, which will dictate how you organize your space. Then, the space will be more consistently neat and orderly. Continual upkeep will prevent the need for another heavy-duty organizational overhaul.
Storage systems aren’t set in stone and take time to develop. Be prepared to change and adapt your system as you use it. Many aspects of our organization solutions are modular and adjustable for this very reason. Contact us today so you can simplify, organize and enjoy your home in the new year!
