Feeling a little disorganized? It’s probably time to tackle a couple of home projects. Every now and then life gets super busy and we find all those little clean-up or reorganization projects we’ve been putting off have accumulated into one big mess. If you’re hoping to get things back in order, but aren’t quite sure where to start, here are just a few areas you should focus on to start.
The Family Room
Depending on how you use them, media centers can a source of constant disorder, or they can be your saving grace. If you’re looking to shape up the family room, start there. Your media center is the root of all organization in the room. It’s likely where all of your DVDs, CDs, controllers, electronic systems, and other items that don’t fit anywhere else go. How do we organize this area? Opting for a custom-built, custom-fit media center is a great place to begin. A well-designed entertainment center can be an elegant solution to staying organized and providing a level of functionality that quiets the disorder once and for all.
The laundry room is often an afterthought when getting your home organized, which is precisely the reason it should be one of the first areas you give attention to. It might seem like an easy room to make adjustments in later on, but oftentimes, the smaller sources of disorganization or discomfort are the ones we passively let slide into disarray. Don’t let your laundry room sit on the back burner! Set yourself up for success with custom storage solutions like pullout shelving, cabinets, dividers, and baskets to make the laundry room a place of calm and motivation to get organized elsewhere.
Mudrooms & Entryways
The entrance to your home is always a great place to start when getting organized in a big way. Consider how you’d like to feel when you step through the front door after a long day. It should feel inviting, welcoming—anything but another source of stress. Custom shelving is also super helpful in this area of the home. A shelving unit or storage space in the entryway can provide the perfect housing for shoe storage, coat or bag hanger systems, and a drop zone.
