Who wouldn’t benefit from eliminating a little clutter? Unfortunately, it’s a resolution that often goes unmet because it can be hard to know where to begin. Be it the living room, bathroom, garage – especially the closet – there is always going to be room to organize. All of our projects at Strobel Design Build take convenience and order into account early on in the planning process. A room can be visually stunning but lack the functionality needed to fit your personal lifestyle. It is important to assess your needs and plan a remodel around what you require of your home.
Let’s start with the closet – a part of the home that’s likely to be in a state of dismay if organization is not your strong suit. At Strobel Design Build, we’re a big proponent of Wellborn Cabinetry. They provide an array of options for the closet that can help turn a cluttered mess into an aesthetically pleasing and easily accessible storage space. Wellborn offers over 600 door styles and finish combinations to give your closet a nice look from the rest of the room. The inside can include solid wood or metal drawers to accommodate smaller items like shoes and jewelry. Before you face the day, you face your closet. There’s no need to start your morning with a cluttered closet starring back at you. If overall organization is your goal this year, this would be a great place to start.
Next on the list of likely suspects for disorganization is the garage. It is the perfect place for storage – short and long term – because it is not a living space. You keep your car in there. Everyone’s got lawn care equipment that needs a place to stay. Do you have kids who enjoy sports? Then you’ll also have two dozen different footballs, basketballs, tennis rackets and hockey sticks! Next thing you know, the garage is overflowing with junk and you park your car in the driveway because there’s no room inside. This is a recipe for disorganization, and talk about stress! People enjoy order, especially in their own homes. You shouldn’t have to come home to a messy garage. Start the year with a remodel that you and your car will be thankful for!
Third on the list is the bathroom. Coupling frequent use and a large number of items (brushes, pastes, creams, etc.), it’s no surprise that things in here can get out of hand. It’s a shame too because the bathroom has the potential to be a therapeutic getaway – if approached properly. Wellborn offers countless cabinet and drawer options, including the new Aspire collection, that provide a home for things you might otherwise find laying around on the counter while not in use. When designing a bathroom, it’s important to assess your living situation to meet the needs of those who will be using it.
A new year provides a new opportunity to better yourself! The home is a great place to start – and eliminating clutter in an effort to organize will have 2017 off to a great start. Call us today to let the Strobel Design Build team help you meet this year’s goals!
