Now is the time to start thinking about ways to live life organized in 2021. We all need a positive change for the new year, so make sure your home is decluttered and organized for a calm and peaceful start in January.
With custom organization solutions, tons of accessories, and creative storage hacks, Tailored Living can help you maximize storage in crucial areas of the home, making it easy to stay organized!
Working from Home
Many, if not most, of us have had to work from home for a large portion of this year as one of the many unexpected challenges in the “new normal” of our day-to-day lives. Creating a productive work environment is critical to your overall success.
Select the right space — If the space in your home is limited, you may need to get creative. Try to identify space that is infrequently used, such as a guest room or dining area. Even a walk-in closet can serve as a highly functional office space by removing the hanger rod and installing electrical connections. Placing a working desk at the top of some stairs is a good option. Here at Tailored Living, we specialize in creating custom home offices with organization solutions built to meet your needs.
Optimize your workspace for storage and organization — A successful work from home experience depends, in part, on ensuring your workspace is thoughtfully designed. Tailored Living can design a home office space with plenty of storage and organization tools so you can spend more time being productive. And for those with busy schedules, we can even conduct a virtual design consultation that reflects your own tastes and sense of style.
Make Your Closets More Efficient
All closets have one thing in common: They are supposed to keep the contents accessible and organized. This includes clothes closets, utility closets, craft closets, hall closets, and linen closets.
Remove anything that doesn’t belong in the closet — Items can travel from room to room with incredible ease and end up in the wrong closet. By removing everything from a closet that should not be there, you’ll free up closet space for what needs to be in the closet, and your items will become useful again since you can now find them all.
Only keep and store what you actually use — Go closet by closet and get rid of anything that you don’t use or need, including clothes, appliances, sports equipment, games, linens, and cleaning supplies. It’s amazing how many cleaners can be ineffective or have spray bottles that refuse to spray, yet they move to the back of the closet and take up valuable storage space. Purge, purge, purge.
Customize the storage to fit the contents — Tailored Living’s custom closet organization systems will outfit each individual closet with appropriate storage options like cabinets, drawers, adjustable shelves, decorative hooks, pullout bins, baskets, and specialty racks, so every closet becomes user-friendly storage space.
Tackling the Garage
If the house is feeling maxed out on space with everyone wanting to do their own thing, your garage could be a viable option to create a dedicated “fun zone.” With a few garage organization tips, your garage can become the land of creativity once you free up some functional space!
Hide the clutter — A cluttered garage is not very inviting, even if some space is available to move around. Custom garage storage cabinets or Slatwall panels will let you calm the chaos and organize and store everything you have and do it beautifully behind closed doors. Create a clean, uniform look, making your garage as stylish and functional as the rest of your home.
Install a custom garage floor — A bare concrete floor will tend to hold moisture, dirt, and spills, contributing to an unhealthy and unsightly garage. A durable, low-maintenance garage floor from Tailored Living will create a clean and safe environment for your family. With our PremierOne® epoxy floor coatings, nothing sticks to the surface, so no matter the activity level, spills wipe right up, and the fun can continue without a pause.
