Have you made your new year’s resolutions yet? Make 2022 the year you resolve to get – and keep – your home organized! Here are some of our favorite resolutions to help you tackle your home organization projects this year.
Utilize “dead space”
In the home organization world, “dead space” is what we use to refer to the space in a room that isn’t being utilized. For example, if you have a small room and feel cramped with the amount of floor space, consider installing a Murphy bed! A Murphy bed folds right back into the wall so you can take it out when you need it, and store it to maximize your living space throughout the day. Here at Closet & Storage Concepts, we consider every empty space an opportunity. If you have space underneath your stairs, above door frames, or under desks, we guarantee our designers can help you find the perfect solution to maximize storage space and help you beautify your home.
Reduce, Reduce, Reduce
You might have heard of the 3R’s of Sustainability: reduce, reuse, and recycle, and we’re here to emphasize how important that first step of reducing is. A clean home environment’s number one enemy is clutter. In 2022, do your part to reduce as much clutter as you can. To not overwhelm yourself, try to divide up rooms in your house and prioritize what needs to be addressed first. If you start small, you can slowly build your way up to bigger items as you get into a routine. And if you have some items that are still in good condition, consider donating them to your local donation center!
Create a System
After you’ve reduced your things, you should establish a system for keeping that area free of clutter. Now that you’ve seen how much and the type of clutter you have, you can probably guess how quickly it can build up again. To combat this, try to create dedicated spots to put things away. For example, using a basket for your tv remotes, a bin for snacks to save counter space, or hooks for accessories, can all help reduce clutter.
