Any relationship requires hard work to keep love strong and true. Loving where you live isn’t any different – an organized and happy home needs to be maintained! Fall back in love with your home this Valentine’s Day with our five organization and home improvement tips:
Tackle your “problem” room.
We all have that one room that is the unofficial “catch-all” for clutter. Instead of allowing this area to cause you any more stress, clear a day or weekend on your calendar, and start getting organized!
Dress up your space with a fresh coat of paint.
Wall color can make all the difference in your space. According to Behr paint, color trends in 2017 can be categorized as Confident, Composed, or Comfortable. Consider bold blues and yellows for a confident look, earthy greens and grays for a composed atmosphere, or light pastels for a comfortable setting.
A composed, natural gray paint might be just what your space needs!
It’s often the smaller things that are the most meaningful in life, and the same can be said about organization. If you don’t have the time or budget to take on a whole organization renovation, invest in some of our Grab-and-Go options, such as a Cubeicals system, or one of our new Storage Furniture products!
Sort and discard.
Did you know the average woman has 103 items in her closet and has never worn 12 percent of her clothes? If you haven’t worn an item in over six months because it’s either too small or too large, it’s likely you won’t wear it again.
Keep it up!
Once you’ve given your home’s organization some love, don’t fall back into bad habits. Spend a few extra minutes putting things back in their places, and always discard an old item when bringing in a new one.
From all of us at ClosetMaid, we hope you have a Happy Valentine’s Day, and don’t forget to show your home some love this year! For more lifestyle and organization tips, visit ClosetMaid.com and all of our other channels: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Houzz and Flickr.
