The New Year is here! Many of us are doing well with our resolutions, but before life gets chaotic once again, we wanted to share some great organizational tips for those whose 2013 resolution is to stay organized.
Let’s start with the different rooms in your home! Beware, in order to get truly organized, you have to make a bit of a mess first. We recommend you tackle one room at a time.
Kitchen: Get everything off the counters! We know you love those little knick knacks, but this is a busy room where your family spends a lot of time. To keep an easy workflow when cooking, you need the least amount of clutter possible. Once you tackle the counters, make your way to those drawers and cabinets! Baskets can be your best friend. Better Homes and Gardens has some great examples! For more ideas, check out our Tips For the Kitchen Pinterest board.
Laundry room: Folding space is key! Clear those counters! It’s also really helpful if you have all the tools that you need in one place. Find a place for the steamer, laundry baskets, and ironing board. Asko’s HiddenHelpers™ are great tools for hiding these items. Tuck your ironing board or folding shelves away, and pull them out when you want to use them. Thinking about redoing this room all together? We have laundry room inspiration for you!
Closet: Go through your clothes. If you haven’t worn that shirt in the last 6 months, there’s a pretty good chance you won’t be wearing it again. Same thing goes for clothes that don’t fit anymore. They’re taking up room in your overstuffed closet. Make sure you’re using all the space you have. Don’t just think horizontally. Go vertical! Shoes that you only wear for special occasions can go on the top shelf!
Garage: Pegboards! Pegboards! Pegboards! Get things off the floor and off the work bench! It’s much easier to find items if you can easily see them hanging on the wall.
Being organized is one of the greatest feelings! Once you accomplish organization bliss, you can free your mind to focus on other things. If you’re inspired by your fresh and clean home, think about updating your appliances. Asko Appliances manufactures environmentally friendly dishwashers and washers and dryers. Swedish quality since 1951, these Asko Appliances focus on purity, simplicity and naturalness, themes which recur in the design language and choice of colors and materials.
