When a good part of your life is focused on cleaning up after yourself and your family members it is time to evaluate your household's function and organization, or lack there of. Creating and setting up a system for long-term organization takes some effort, time and an understanding of what you value most in your life currently. Having a home system and an aesthetic environment is key to having the motivation to keep your space free of clutter and perpetual disorganization.
Sometimes our spaces reflect a past part of our life. For instance a whole cabinet of crafts, old exercise equipment, torn and tattered furniture, or old stuff that is not serving a purpose. Understanding what you actually use in your space and how often, and where you use it, understanding what in your space serves a purpose, and what is sentimental or you what you love to have around is the key to having an organized self and space.
Envisioning a space that you love can be as simple as identifying which store is your favorite store for furniture and design. Is it pottery barn, crate and barrel, z gallerie, or traditional or modern furniture stores? Are you seeking something ultra modern or boho circus? Do you like rustic, or country fixins? Whatever your dream style is, define it. Get it crystal clear in your mind. This will lead you to an organized lifestyle.
Working with a professional organizer to help you determine how to set up the space, where to put cabinets, furniture, countertops, amenities is crucial from the beginning of building or renovating a space. Professional organizers will help measure the space, and get the space decorated. Organizers help you pick out items that fit your taste, help get things delivered and put the whole home together from start to finish. Organizers will help you organize your schedule, teach you how to stay focused and become more productive.
Organizers take a look at what you do on a daily, weekly, monthly basis to determine the best way to set up and stock your home. You don't have to rack your brain to figure out a good kitchen and or bathroom layout, or how the furniture will be placed in each room. Organizers do all of that for you. They even will help pack and unpack, organize furniture placement, decorate and create an organized space system for the entire home or office.
Going out to different luxury and boutique hotels can be helpful for you to know what kind of decor creates energy and calm. Visiting google images, model homes, or scourging estate sales, consignment shops, or shopping on-line can also help define your true taste and what you truly desire to be in your space. Getting a clear idea on your current taste is where is all begins.
