Kitchen efficiency is crucial:

In your kitchen do you find it difficult to find what you need while cooking, preparing, or sitting down for a meal? Try taking stock in your kitchen cabinets and finding what needs an organization overhaul. Throw out old food, boxes, and food storage ware that is old and cluttering your cabinets.

Consider installing drawer, shelf and cabinet organizers to help stack vertically and optimize your storage space in your kitchen. If you need help, hire a kitchen designer who can help you assess your kitchen lifestyle and assess how you can be more productive without sacrificing time in your kitchen.

Create a closet that you aren’t afraid of: 

Many people think your closets are supposed to be a place to hide your junk! On the contrary, if you have an efficient closet to store your items your time looking for stored items will be cut down; in turn helping you become more productive when searching in your home for shoes, clothes, pantry items and more. If you have a tall closet or pantry consider using clear storage bins and drawers to see what you are storing and label each container if necessary. This works well for seasonal clothing, home decorations, and children’s and garage items that are small. Use these tips to create a storage area that is organized and is easy to navigate, instead of run out of!

Organization as decor:

While you may think of organization for its utilitarian purposes, organization can also be beautiful! Whether you are using a modern decorative bookshelf to organize your small knick-knacks and favorite book collections, or you’re making an architectural statement, organization, as decor is a wonderful design feature. Consider changing your family hallway into an organized mudroom with seating, shelving, and handy area for everyone to leave their backpacks, coats and shoes. You will love how the organization feature can look great and still help your family stay organized and productive on busy mornings.

Your productive home shouldn’t be a challenge to live in if you stay organized and keep an order to your rooms. Evaluate your home and if you have kids, pets, work at home, have elders living with you, and other lifestyle circumstances can affect your organization layout. Determine what works best for your comfortable and productive home.
