Tips for Designing and Organizing Your Closet

One of my favorite things to do for my clients is to design their closets. Recently, my team and I had the opportunity to design and organize multiple closets in our clients’ new home.

Client Before and After: How to Stretch Storage Space In A Laundry Room

Last week my washer was acting up, and it wasn’t until the moment when I couldn’t do laundry that I realized just how much time I spend in my laundry room.

The thing is, not all closets are created equal. Some closets have a combination of long hang and short hang, shelves and shoe racks, but more often than not is a closet perfect for your needs without a little bit of tweaking.

Spring Organizing Series: Garages + Storage Rooms

Basements, garages, and attics can quickly become full of clutter because of how much can be packed inside and the lack of upkeep that it requires (function definitely trumps design in these areas so it's easy to make excuses for their disorganized state). Think of each of these spaces as another room in your house--a place where everything should be purposeful, visible, and where you can still walk around to access everything. At least once every year pull every content out of the storage area and review what should stay and what should go.
