Finally, here’s something you can do to any room in your home: organize it. No matter if it’s the kitchen, bedroom, basement, or spare room, decluttering could be the key to a whole new room. Start by taking everything up off the floor, on top of tables, or just anything randomly hanging around the room. Next, make sure you need it. Make your piles of need, want, and donate or discard. Needs are essential items that are used most every day. Wants are things you would like to keep but are used less often. The donate or discard pile is exactly that – items you just don’t need any more.
Next, decide if you have the space for new shelving, storage towers, baskets, or containers and which storage container fits your room. Pick the style, color, and size that makes sense for you. Our storage towers from mDesign include three to eight drawers, perfect for clothes, linens, and more. Need to organize the kids’ toys, or arts and crafts, you can try our assortment of multi-tiered toy boxes. If it’s a bathroom cabinet you seek, we’ve got that, too. You’ll be amazed at what a few short hours of sorting and pairing that will ultimately result in things being put away and your room opening up to more possibilities. One final tip: categorize while you sort and store to make things easier moving forward. Our Sterilite® latch top storage boxes can help you do that. Ranging from 2 to 120 quarts in size, their clear look lets you easily see what’s in them and some even have wheels for easy movement in and out of storage.
As with any DIY project, it’s all about the planning that makes all the difference. Make sure that you have a goal in mind for each project. Things could change along the way, so there will be plenty of decisions to make. Always keep your end goal in mind when you think about those changes. When your project is complete, you will feel empowered and proud of your new look. Who knows, your success may just spur you on to more projects in the future.
Good luck and happy improving!
