Spring is the Perfect Time to Organize Your Closets


Spring is almost here. It’s the perfect time to spring clean your home, specifically your closets. Kansas City CLOSET Company has some tips to make getting your closets in order easy and painless.

Just getting started can be overwhelming. Tackle one closet at a time. If that’s still too much to try and accomplish, break it down into separate tasks or areas. For example, tackle shoes one day, hanging items another day, and so on.

The first thing to do is completely empty your closet. Pull everything out. This lets you see the space you have to work with. While it is empty, give it a good cleaning. Dust the shelves and vacuum or mop the floor. Continue reading

Organize Your Craft Room

Whether you have a dedicated craft room or just have a corner of another room, making the most of your space is key. Keeping your crafting supplies well organized will not only save you time, but it will also help get your creative juices flowing.

Before you start organizing your crafting materials, you need to get your room set up properly. If you have a dedicated room, you have more flexibility in what you can do. Select flooring that is easy to clean, ideally a hard surface that can be swept or mopped as needed. Install good lighting, including both general lighting and task lighting. Select furniture that is comfortable and ergonomic. The furniture should be able to stand up to any chemicals you may use in your crafts. Be sure to incorporate lots of surface space for various tasks. Give careful thought to your specific storage needs and plan accordingly rather than just haphazardly purchase storage shelves or bins without a plan. Cabinets with doors can hide clutter and keep your room looking neat and tidy. Pull-out shelves and bins are a great addition. Kansas City CLOSET Company offers a wide array of scalable and customizable storage solution and work area options for all crafting needs. Finally, incorporate your style and personality into the room with a trendy light fixture, new wall color, and inspiring artwork. Continue reading
