How Getting Organized Can Give You More Space

getting organizedThere are many, many reasons for getting organized. Whether you are a young couple recently married and combining belongings or a parent trying to streamline the process for constantly cleaning up your kids’ messes, an organized living space can make life easier. Another reason to “get organized” is that you’ll discover you have more usable space than you once realized. Organizing your home, one room at a time, will turn your frustration into celebration! At Garage Décor and More, we can show you how.

Kitchen Organization

The pantry is an important space to organize. Especially if you have teenagers, you’ll notice that mere hours can go by after a shopping trip and the pantry will look almost completely bare again! When you have a well-organized pantry, it’s easier to know what groceries are needed, making shopping a breeze. Grocery stores have been doing things right for decades, organizing their shelves so that the newest boxes and products are behind the older items. Keeping cereals and baking goods in labeled containers can also be helpful when organizing.

At Garage Décor and More, we have a knack for pantry organization! We are able to help design and build pantries of all sizes, creating more usable space for homeowners who need it.

Household Closets

Homeowners with plenty of closet space typically don’t take it for granted; having a “place for everything” is a homeowner’s dream! Unfortunately, as our families grow and our possessions increase, finding enough closet space can often be a problem. Garage Décor and More can maximize your existing closet space with ease! For example, we can create more room in the bottom of your closet with the use of storage bins and stackable cabinets or drawers. One handy tip is if you find yourself reaching for items in your closet often, it’s best to put them in a spot that’s easy to find. Keep your everyday essentials in sight and easy-to-reach. It may take some planning on your part to figure out where commonly used items should go, but in the long run it will be well worth it.

An organized linen closet is another key place to store useful household items. Think beach towels, sheets and holiday-themed towels for every bathroom and bedroom! If your linen closet is overflowing, it’s time to give us a call. First and foremost, go through all of those sheets and towels and repurpose any that are old, torn and tattered. Once you’ve decluttered your linens, fold and store the items you want to keep. Store sheet sets within pillowcases to help the clutter. We can show you sample photos of linen closets we have designed, also offering recommendations on the best solution for your particular closet.

If your master bedroom closet needs some TLC, we can redesign that, too. We help homeowners think about their closet space in a more logical, organized way. For instance, it’s best to organize certain clothes and accessories in the closet together if you often wear them as a set. Our high-quality closets are from Redline Closet Systems, offering custom solutions for any size of closet. With Redline, options include 16 shelf and cabinet depths in any height, as well as eight exterior color combinations.

Garage Organization

Having a well-organized garage offers many benefits. Even though the main function of a garage is for storing your vehicles, homeowners appreciate the fact that this extra room in the home can also be used for storing other items. In the garage, ideal storage space can be achieved by going vertical with HandiWALL and Slatwall systems. This wall storage system offers an open design, making it easier to find what you are looking for while staying organized. There are a variety of products that we can incorporate into your home’s organizational scheme that are affordable, convenient and smart.
