“Chaos was the law of nature;
order was the dream of man.”
— Henry Adams
Organizing and putting things away in their proper place may not sound like a fun pursuit. Perhaps this stems from when we were young and were told to put our toys away. The fun was over. It was time for a bath or homework or — heaven forbid — bedtime. Adulthood brings with it many more things to put away, so the art of making order out of chaos can seem daunting at times. But that does not mean it cannot be rewarding.
The reward of making order out of our daily chaos comes in the form of a proper place to put our things. When the receiving space is well planned, of good quality, and even beautiful, it transforms a chore to a joy.
Tailored Living featuring Premier Garage is a one-stop shop for making the special spaces in your home functional and beautiful. Best of all, the shop comes to you. Husband and wife team Robin and Robin Carruthers are the local owners of Tailored Living, serving Columbia, Greenville, and Spartanburg.
Closets often top the list of places where chaos reigns. Added to clothes — those that fit and those that might one day — and shoes are all the miscellaneous items like belts, hats, sunglasses, jewelry, and scarves that conspire to create havoc. The Carruthers couple takes time to understand how you use your space and what you need to store and then advise you on the best storage solutions to keep chaos at bay. Special accessories help as well, like pullout shoe racks, stowaway ironing boards, and jewelry trays. Retractable valet rods hold dry cleaning or clothes to pack for a trip. With Tailored Living’s many choices of finishes and hardware, the result is as beautiful as it is functional.
Tailored Living has solutions for home storage beyond the mere closet. Pantries fall neatly in order with the addition of fruit and vegetable baskets, spice racks, and pullout drawers for linens and cooking staples. Hooks for book bags, shelves for shoes, cabinets for cleaning supplies, laundry hampers, and holders for frequently needed items like scissors, paper towels, and keys make mudrooms and laundry rooms places of beauty. Home offices and hobby areas get their own unique touches from the dynamic Robin duo as well by eliminating distracting clutter and making it easier to get work done.
The garage is certainly not last nor least when it comes to making order where chaos once reigned. Tailored Living offers numerous solutions for storing yard tools, bicycles, and even kayaks. DIYers can have their dream workbench with drawers and cabinet storage above and below and cleverly hung tools on the wall. Finish it off with beautiful epoxy flooring that is both attractive and easily cleaned. When the yard tools are on their designated hooks and golf clubs are stored away, you may be tempted to actually park in your garage, or at least leave it open for your neighbors to admire. Functional, beautiful, well-designed home spaces make putting things away in their proper place a pleasure. Order, that freedom from chaos, is a dream of calm easily realized thanks to Tailored Living.
