In this episode of Home Trends with Ken, I discuss my 3 Top Home Organization Tips to add enjoyment and value to your home. Watch the video by clicking on the link below. A synopsis of the tips is also included below.
Here are 3 of my favorite home organization tips that will help you get more enjoyment out of your home and - should you decide to sell - will help your home sell quicker and for more money.
Tip 1: It’s may be time to declutter. If so, create three “Go Away” boxes - labeled “donate” “recycle” “sell.” Take a first look around your house - and place items you no longer want into one of these three boxes. Keep the boxes for a few days and repeat the process until you feel you need or love everything that remains in your house!
Tip 2: You and your family come in and out of the house every day with keys, bags, umbrellas, and more. Design an area near the entry that I like to call the “Command Center.” The Command Center has space for all the coming-and-going essentials. Add hooks for coats, a basket for keys, and somewhere to put wet shoes and umbrellas! Here’s a photo where one of my clients created a great “command center” between the garage and kitchen. It’s both attractive and functional!
Tip 3: Go through your closet. If it doesn't fit, get rid of it! Then, switch your remaining clothes over to slimmer, uniform, textured hangers that will help keep your clothes off the floor, and open up a little more space. At my own home, I was thinking, wow, I need a new home or a home renovation because my closet is so tiny! Then, I went through my closet and got rid of items that no longer fit or were out of style. Yep - I got rid of those college era sweatshirts and size 30 jeans! Suddenly, I had the perfect place to keep all my clothes.
If you undertake these three simple home organization tips, your day-to-day life will run much smoother and efficiently too. And, you will increase your home value if you decide to sell because buyers will be able to see a well-organized and efficient home!
