I Want to Get Organized

Do you dream of having a closet, pantry, garage, home office or studio where there is “a place for everything and everything in its place”? Did you know that 80% of the clutter in most homes is a result of disorganization, not lack of space? There are many compelling reasons to invest in custom closets and organizational systems.

Top 7 Reasons to Consider a Custom Closet or Organizational System:

Save Time and Money: There is nothing worse than climbing over clutter or searching for something at the last minute. The National Association of Professional Organizers says that we spend one entire year of our lives looking for lost items. With an organized gift closet and gift-wrap station you save gift buying; with an organized pantry you save on last-minute grocery trips or accidentally buying multiples of the same item. Need another example? Harris Interactive reports that 23% of adults pay bills late and incur fees because they can’t find their bills! Being able to find things easily and quickly saves both time and money.

Increase Your Resale Value: Studies have shown that an organized walk-in closet adjacent to a master bedroom can contribute up to a 70 percent return on investment at resale! Buyers love seeing great storage spaces, whether it’s a coat closet, a linen closet, a utility closet, or a professionally designed garage. Where else do you see such big returns for organizing a small amount of square footage?

Reduce Housework: According to the National Soap and Detergent Association, getting rid of clutter eliminates 40 percent of housework in the average home

Showcase Your Style: Your clothes reflect your style, but what about your closet? Beyond being a necessary storage space, a custom closet can be designed to showcase your wardrobe and reflect your lifestyle. By customizing a closet, a homeowner can create a storage environment that caters to her specific needs. For example, if you have a large shoe or purse collection, you may want to look into customized cabinetry with shelving. An executive with lots of neckties may want add a valet rod for better organization of his wardrobe. Everything can be customized, from drawers with jewelry trays to crown molding to cabinetry finishes.

Reclaim Your Garage: The U.S. Department of Energy reports that 25% of people with two-car garages fill them with so much stuff, they can’t actually park a car inside! 50% of homeowners rate their garage as the most disorganized room in the house, yet the area of the house most frequently used by family members.

Improve the View:  Let’s be honest; organized custom closets look fantastic! There is a reason why you’ll never see piles of clothing and overstuffed closets in shelter magazines like House Beautiful: clutter is unattractive.  Professionally designed closets also look bigger and are easier to maintain.  Best of all, they will increase pride in your home.

Improve Your Life Balance: Conquering clutter with a great organizational system provides a wonderful sense of control. Not having to battle clutter or search for lost items, creates more physical and more mental space. You will have more time for yourself, your loved ones and the activities you want to do.
