Organize Your Home’s Entranceway When you are a busy parent, organizing your home one room at a time is a great idea. If you feel overwhelmed about organizing, then begin with the living room’s entranceway. In most homes, the living room is where everyone enters a home, and children often drop their backpacks, coats and footwear at the doorway. This entranceway is typically seen from the living room, and it makes the space look chaotic. If your home’s entranceway has a closet, then make it more usable for your children by customizing it with shelving and garment rods that are at a lower level. Alternatively, you can add a freestanding cupboard that makes it easier to hang coats and store backpacks.Read More

Gone are the days when master bedrooms had closets that could barely contain one person’s clothes—let alone a couple’s wardrobe. Home builders have a lot a competition, and need something that will catch prospective buyers’ eyes. One design they are constantly improving is the master closet, also known as the closet en suite.
Buyers are not interested in the old school walk-in wire closets with a high rack for shirts and a lower rack for skirts and pants. They do not want to arrange their shoes on the closet floor and stuff their sweaters on the top shelf. Today’s master closet is a masterpiece of racks, shelving, and drawers that can store clothes neatly and with style. Here are some other uses homeowners have found for their spacious master closets:Read More

Closets have evolved beyond mere utilitarian storage spaces, especially for clothes. Now they’re so much more – walk-in closets, in particular. The latter have become chic havens with luxurious seating and beautiful clothes on display like one’s own boutique. Some even have coffee makers.
You would think with all the space a walk-in closet offers, that clutter would be nonexistent. However, even walk-in closets need organizing to keep them free of clutter and mess. Plans with pre-designed systems such as built-in rods, shelves, drawers, and shoe racks, can offer a variety of options for a walk-in closet.Read More

CNBC reports that millennials are among the top groups of people increasing the money spent on home remodeling projects. While the oldest homeowners are still the largest spending group, millenials are quickly coming in second with a seven percent increase in average money spent to remodel a home for an average of more than $26,000 a year. Surprisingly, a first-time buyer often spends nearly $34,000 renovating a residential property.
Where is the money coming from for new construction and rehab projects? Typically property owners use the equity in the home and other items like bonds, stocks, and vehicles to access the necessary money to complete home projects. Millennials are not going this route with most of them using credit cards. Houzz conducted a survey of more than 100,000 participants finding that spending since 2004 has gradually increased year after year. CNBC says that this is a signal to the rest of the country that the housing market has rebounded nicely since the recession, and they claim that the current spending rates are comparable to those of pre-recession numbers.Read More

Closets often become a catch-all area for things that have no other place in the home and this leads to excess clutter and disorganization in the closet. De-cluttering your closets can be challenging but neat and organized closets mean that you can easily find everything you need. The principle behind organizing a closet is basically the same whether it’s your clothing closet or any other closet in your home. The following tips can help you de-clutter and organize all your closets so that you can always find exactly what you’re looking for.
Cleaning closets takes time and it’s important to tackle the job when you have enough time to get it done. Be sure to have large trash bags, boxes, and storage bins on hand. The trash bags are for anything not worth donating. Cardboard boxes are ideal for donations and the storage bins can be used to store sentimental items that you simply can’t get rid of.Read More

For many homeowners, a spare room is just a place to store an extra bed as well as the decorations and furniture that don’t quite fit with the home’s decor. At best, it gets used as an easy-access storage space or a place for friends or family members to visit when they stay over. Unfortunately, this is a true waste of the untapped potential that the spare room offers to the home!
Personal Study or Office Everyone needs a place where they can sit back, relax and focus without the constant distractions posed by pets, kids and general activity. Turning a spare room into a home office or reading room is a great way to utilize the space productively. You can setup desktop computers, printers or other equipment and design the space for efficiency.Read More
