Americans are growing more and more dissatisfied with the way material possessions are overtaking their lives. You don’t have to become a minimalist to get things under control, though. All you have to do is make a conscious effort to rethink the storage space you already have and target a few areas in the house for redesign and remodel. At Closet & Storage Concepts Colorado, we can build custom solutions to help you organize, maximize space, and improve the functionality of your home. Here are some suggestions for New Year’s resolutions you might actually keep.
1. Get Your Spice Rack Back in Order
Did you know that spices lose a lot of their potency after a year on the rack? Start your New Year’s resolutions here and dump all your old dried herbs and spices. And while you’re at it, build a spice rack in your custom pantry that makes you passionate about cooking and baking with all those fresh new flavors.
2. Find a Spot for all Those Shoes
How many times have you tripped over shoes in the entryway? It might be time to reconsider the storage options in your mudroom. A combination of open shelving and closed cabinets lets you store out-of-season foot ware and gives every member of the family a pace to put the shoes they wear most often. Not only will this make it easier for you to find the shoes or coats you’re looking for when you’re heading out the door, but it will make your entryway more inviting if there isn’t a pile of shoes by the door.
3. Update Your Teenager’s “Little Kid” Closet
There’s a transition in every child’s life from toys and games to electronics and maybe a heightened sense of style. At some point, their storage space needs to reflect these changing priorities. They want more space for the new clothes they purchase at the mall and less space for those toys they no longer play with. This New Year, surprise them with a complete custom closet makeover. With features like adjustable shelving and closed storage, their closet can adapt year-round as well as grow with their changing style.
4. Declutter the Garage
It’s not for the faint of heart, but let’s face it: this chore probably needs to be checked off your list. The smart way to go about it is to think about what design features you want in the garage once you’re sorted through the clutter. Are you mostly storing tools and outdoor equipment. Do you also want to create a mudroom or laundry area? Knowing what you want the end result to be may just motivate you to see the job through. Talk to us about the wide variety of storage options you have when it comes to designing a custom garage space.
Let 2019 be the year you finally follow through on those New Year’s Resolutions. With storage specialists at Closet & Storage Concepts Colorado, we are ready to help you meet your organizational goals and gain the peace of mind that comes from a house where everything has a place.
