When you look around your home and wonder "What the heck?", it is most likely time to get organized and re-decorate. Whether you're starting from scratch, or updating a past taste, having a vision of your current, "now" style is important to be happier, and more settled in your home and business spaces.Knowing what you value in life, and what you want long-term is essential to living an ideal lifestyle in an ideal space.
One of the most essential things about decorating a home, and or office, is proper furniture, proper furniture placement, proper decor and most of all good flow and energy. You want to find whatever furniture, storage cabinetry, artwork, flooring, paint, lighting, drapery, and carpets. You want items in your space that will make you happy and uplifted for at least 8-10 years down the road. You also want functionality, a place to put everything, and a way to keep your space clutter free and easy to keep up.
Having a clear vision of color, style and materials is a heavy burden for someone with a design background, but for the average person making choices on flooring, paint color, or style is difficult. Going through even minor renovation, without a plan may cause anxiety and stress, sleep disturbance which will make the process of decorating seem like climbing a volcano rather than an extremely enjoyable time in life.
Getting help from a professional organizer with design expertise will make the process of decorating a whole lot easier. Having someone to talk to about your dream design helps define the important aspects of what you want in your home. For instance in a bathroom design don't neglect to have a vanity for putting on makeup or shaving. Also in bathrooms slick floors are beautiful but can be scary to navigate with wet feet. Or say in a kitchen, installing a trash cabinet that has 4 bins for trash instead of two, and a cutting board set up on the counter above the trash, could make life easier and less hectic. Having to take less steps to live your life is always more pleasurable.
Staying in high end and glamorous hotels gives us a taste of a lifestyle we may dream about. Why not make your home and or office like a high end luxury property. Sometimes finding a different floorplan can solve many of your clutter and space challenges.
A professional organizing assessment helps you determine whether your space is conducive to your lifestyle. Using a professional organizer, during the design phase of any new building, or upgrades will ensure the home space will be maximized for storage, functionality and aesthetic value.
The most important thing about living or working in a space is that it is easy to get around, and that there is a great balance between excitement and of calm, and that you will love being in that space more that anywhere else.
