5 Easy Organization Ideas to Get You Ready for the Winter

5 Easy Organization Ideas to Get You Ready for the WinterAs the winter months are approaching, it’s the perfect time to get your home in order before the icy cold weather sets in and holiday festivities begin. There is plenty of time to update and organize your home to prep for the upcoming season change. We rounded up five helpful organization tips from the Garage Décor and More team to help you along the way!

Tidy up the kitchen.

If you typically host your family’s holiday celebrations, an organized kitchen is a must. We can create custom shelving for your pantry to store a multitude of items you no longer want to see gathering dust on your counter spaces. The best part? You can choose from woodgrain finishes to solid colors for your pantry shelving, creating a beautiful, custom space that’s also highly functional. Once you find a “spot” for all your baking items, cookie cutters, and kitchen appliances, you’ll be ready for all the holiday cooking and family gatherings!

Pare down your closet.

As the seasons are changing, it’s an ideal time to take a good look at your closet. If you’re limited on closet space, we highly recommend organizing your closet seasonally. Gather your shorts, tank tops, flips flops, and any other summer attire to put in storage shelves, drawers, or labeled bins. While you’re at it, consider donating or purging any clothes you haven’t worn in two years. Garage Décor and More can create additional shelving and storage for those overflow items, whether it’s creating usable storage space in the unfinished section of a basement or better utilizing that spare bedroom closet.

Winterize your garage.

Temperatures will start dropping before you know it. Be ahead of the game and neatly store flowerpots, yard gear, cleaning tools, and other outdoor equipment in the garage. While you’re organizing everything, be sure to place any snow shovels, snowblowers, gloves, and any winter tools in a place where they’re easy to find. Our Statwall system is perfect for hanging items (like shovels) you use regularly. If you prefer enclosed cabinets, check out our RedLine Design Systems that are built to last, accommodating sports equipment, carpentry tools and anything in between. Garage Décor and More can create a garage space that your neighbors will envy! Just give us a call to learn more.

Create custom mudroom and laundry storage.

With winter comes intense weather. Mudrooms and laundry rooms are a great space to keep the rest of the home free of your heavy winter gear. If your laundry or mudroom is disorganized and lacking its full potential, Garage Décor and More offers free consultations for homeowners wanting to create a more organized storage space. Before the wintery slush and mud “hits”, contact us for a no hassle consultation. We can transform your mudroom or laundry room, adding additional storage that makes good sense.

Organize your home office.

You’ve likely been working from home more often. In some cases, many of our clients have transitioned to a home office permanently.  It can be challenging to be productive without an appropriate workspace. If you’re considering a home office or improving your current one, you should have one that’s organized, comfortable, and looks great to maintain an effective work environment. Consider our custom storage options for offices, big and small, to keep everything in order. It’s not only an investment towards your home but an investment in yourself. Once you have an organized home office, imagine the increased productivity you’ll find having everything is in its rightful place.

Garage Décor and More offers many suggestions for custom designed storage solutions that can improve any room of the home. We offer free consultations to help you decide what option is best for you. Fall and winter is the best time to get organized! If you’d like to learn more, visit our website at https://www.garagedecorandmore.com/ or call us at (618) 408-1690.
