It doesn’t take long to notice that the kitchen or the living room is in desperate need of cleaning. Other spaces in the house are easier to overlook and yet, still have a big impact on your day-to-day life. Check out our guide below on tackling areas in your home that are probably in urgent need of tidying up.
Is it often difficult to find what you’re looking for in the pantry? Are you storing items that are expired or that no one in your household likes? If so, your pantry is probably slowing you down when you’re cooking or looking for a snack. It’s time to reorganize.
Take everything out and sort foods into logical groups. Discard expired food and donate items your family doesn’t use. Put everything back in groups, with older items near the front. If your pantry is still too full or hard to navigate, it might be time to upgrade your pantry. With a custom pantry, shelves and other storage solutions are tailored specifically to your needs, so you have the perfect place to store all of your items.
It’s easy to forget about the guest room when you have no plans for visitors and that’s why it sometimes turns into a dumping ground for miscellaneous items. Even if the room isn’t cluttered, you might find that the closet is jam-packed. To save yourself the stress of having to tidy up on short notice, tackle the guest room and its closet this week.
If the guest room is full of items that are no longer in use, like old toys or old devices, determine what you can donate, recycle, or dump. If the guest room is being used for overflow for another part of the house like the linen closet, figure out how to reorganize, declutter, or upgrade those storage areas to prevent this.
If you’ve decluttered the guest room and still need more storage, consider remodeling the closet. Or maybe you’ve realized the guest room is full of items because it doubles as a playroom, home gym, or something else. If that’s the case, think about replacing the existing bed with a wall bed to maximize space.
If your tools are stored in the garage, it’s easy not to notice that they’ve become disorganized. But it’s very frustrating when you have to fix something and can’t find the tools you need. So, go assess your tool storage system and come up with a plan.
Slatwall and pegboard storage are great options because everything is visible and easy to grab. For maximum convenience, plan out what you want to store and where in advance so you add the perfect hooks and bins for each item in the right places. If you’re someone who loves to work on projects, maybe you also need a workbench and some additional storage space for tools and materials. Look into a custom garage storage system to suit your needs.
