Who doesn’t love a good before and after gallery?
Below are before and after photos of various projects I’ve worked on for my clients.
We transformed this master bathroom drawer by ensuring that everyday essentials were easy to see and access. Things that are used everyday should be placed in the top drawer – hence the toothpaste, floss sticks, deodorant, and cotton swabs. Things that aren’t used daily like backup razors, cuticle oil, and travel sized toiletries were moved to a different a lower drawer.
A little cable management goes a long way. We organized this office by cleaning up the cords and cables, and moving the paper clutter to the file cabinet. Rather than having multiple piles of paper around the house, designate one place for all paper. Sort your paper into three main sections: 1) to be dealt with (like utility bills); 2) to be filed (think birth certificates); and 3) to be referenced (for example, rental agreements).
We transformed this miscellaneous storage my designating a home for each item on the shelf. In the upper left hand, additional string light bulbs and smart sockets. Below that tech related gear like a dj board, headphones, a projector, and the white sheet (used for outdoor projecting). Board games on the row below that. And barbeque related things below that. On the righthand side, there’s tools, hardware, and a first-aid kit. Below that, larger items like the drill, Theragun and electrode machine. The idea here, with most organizing projects, is to group like with like, or at least similar items togethers.
Almost everyone I come across complains about their under the sink situation. It’s always a situation.
Trust me when I say: invest in felt hangers. And if you don’t trust me when I say that, at least invest in matching hangers. For this master closer refresh, I helped my client purge (and donate) clothes she no longer wears or that no longer with her current lifestyles. I color coded the remaining clothes that she truly loves. The hangers and color coding make this master closet pleasing to the eye.
