reduce clutterIf you are looking to reduce clutter and reduce stress, start with a home organization plan. By implementing an organizational system, you’ll be amazed at how stress-free a home can become. Today’s home interior design elements are typically focused on clean lines and less clutter, with a modern vibe of low profile furniture and fewer accessories. If you’re looking to reduce clutter, here are 5 of the main spaces to focus on using Garage Décor and More solutions.

Laundry rooms. The laundry room can be an organized homeowner’s dream…or a clutter-filled nightmare! Some easy to implement shelving ideas to reduce clutter includes using open shelving for your linens and cleaning supplies. Open shelving, with a variety of styles from StoreWall, also forces us to place items in smart and attractive groupings, adding a chic look to the laundry room when used in conjunction with wire or wicker baskets. If you’re looking to add more elegance to your laundry room, enclosing the cabinets by using our Redline Series offers the ultimate in storage and attractiveness. Typically, adding the shelving and storage over the washer and dryer helps keep cleaning supplies in their spot, gives the homeowner the ability to add a rod for hanging clothes to dry, and keeps random socks from falling behind the washer and dryer.

The garage. Organizing the garage is one of the best ways to reduce clutter in the rest of the home. Many of our clients install a backpack station within the garage or a hallway adjacent to the garage door. Our team at Garage Décor and More can offer the best solution for your particular situation. As kids come home from school, they can leave their backpacks, shoes and jackets before entering the home. Even if homework needs to be tackled, the backpacks and other supplies go back into their designated spot before the next school day. Another tip? Tidying the house for a mere 15 minutes each night, placing things where they belong, can make the morning routine so much easier on the whole family.

When closets in the home are organized, you’ll begin to see the rest of the home’s organizational system fall neatly into place. So many of us spend time on organizing the living spaces in the home, but what if we devoted a little more time to closet organization, making items easier to find and offering more usable space? Even the smallest closets can be configured so that the homeowner has more room for storage. Whether it’s seasonal clothing like winter coats and hats to items like eveningwear that you only occasionally use, organizing the closet will make you want to leave the door open for guests to see!

We can create a spot for folded sweaters, shoes and more with a custom design. With Redline cabinets, you’re not limited to standard off-the-shelf solutions. Since your needs and closet requirements are unique, we offer 16 shelf and cabinet depths in practically any height. With a new Redline Closet Storage System, it will be easier than ever to reduce any clutter in your bedroom because every piece of clothing will be stored conveniently and properly.

The pantry. We offer a variety of solutions for the kitchen pantry. Whether you need open shelving in a closet or have a walk-in storage room for groceries, we have many options available to organize your food items. Because our systems are fully customizable, we can create the pantry of your dreams! An organized pantry makes it so much easier to know what groceries you need and what may be overstocked. You may even discover your pantry offers more usable space for extra items like holiday tablecloths, linens, and more.

Once you get organized, here’s a tip for homes with little ones: Put all of your child’s dishes, cups and snacks in one spot and in a location that they can easily reach in the pantry. As they get a little bit older, they will love this newfound independence and learn the importance of helping out earlier, by setting their dishes on the table for dinner or by cleaning up afterwards. Time to unload the dishwasher? They will know exactly where their kitchen plates and utensils need to go.

Home office. If you organize your home office, you’ll love that the bills and invoices once stacked on the breakfast bar now have an ideal spot in the home. Know what else? You’ll spend less time searching for that bill that will soon be past due. An organized home office is one of the most important rooms of the home, and keeping it tidy can be done with some forethought and planning. If you only have room for a small office/work center, install a small cabinet under a floating shelf for the important notes and calendars to keep everyone organized. Let us help you get creative with your home office space!
