An organized home is a happy home, or one would think anyway. You have fewer distractions in a clean and organized home, which means you can focus on other things, like friends and family. If you work from home you probably know that clutter can be a huge distraction from work and can make it hard to focus.
Organizing for a whole family can be even more difficult. Especially when it’s usually one person in the home that is responsible for most of the cleaning and organizing. Here are a few ways you can get a little simple home improvement done by having a more organized home.
Bedrooms should be a place for rest, and if yours is full of clutter you may not get much rest. Sleep is important for health, and if you aren’t getting enough sleep it can cause problems at work and at home. It can make you irritable and drain your energy.
To organize your bedroom you need to have a dresser for foldable clothing, hangers for things you don’t want to get wrinkled, and the drive to put these things where they belong each time you do laundry, rather than ending up with a giant pile of clothes that could be clean or dirty.
But storage containers that can fit under your bed to store out of season clothing in. Consider investing in something to organize shoes in as well. And, do this for all of the bedrooms in your home (although kids rooms, with toys and art supplies, may need a few more organizational tools).
An Organized Kitchen
Kitchens are busy places in your home, so you want to not just keep them organized but also safe. If you have kids in the home you want cupboards to be made safe, and things that could cut them put up and away so they can’t get to them.
If you don’t have a ton of cupboard space you should consider getting a wall or ceiling rack for pots and pans. If you have a pantry that space doesn’t have to be saved strictly for food, you can use it for overflow of kitchen items, like your blender.
In the fridge and in the pantry keep newer items to the back and older items to the front so that you use everything up before it goes bad. Not only does this keep you organized, but it also helps you waste less.
Keeping The Garage Organized
A big step in home improvement is to convert your garage into a place to do more than park your car. Make a workspace in your garage and use it as more of a space that you can do things in. Clean up the floors and put some mats down, and buy some storage containers to sort tools and more in.
You can also put up peg board on the walls of your garage, making it easier to hang things up and away. There are plenty of things in the garage that can get hung, from rakes to power tools.
