Spare rooms easily become cheap storage space for excess stuff. Every item is a delayed decision - do I still need it? Do I still want it? How do I best get rid of it? It is still in good working order... - Instead of a definite yes/no answer, the item lands in the spare room for later consideration... - Here we transformed a spare bedroom back to a useable space where everything is accessible.
Merging households can also be a reason for extra items.
Here we initially sorted all boxes into categories, then unpacked, decided what to keep and what to donate or sell, and lastly established storage zones for the items that the clients wanted to keep and created a creative space for everyone,
The cupboard under the sink is a notoriously difficult space to organise because of the sink and pipework that always seems in the wrong spot. It also easily becomes an area where random bits and pieces are stored.
By designating the space to cleaning products and jars, adding containers and categorising we created a space where everything had a home and was easily accessible for the client.
Pantries cupboards can be difficult to organise. Here we were lucky that we had spare shelves to add, which allowed us to create designated zones for baking, cooking, breakfast, condiments and cans. We even split some areas into his and hers and were able to fit everything so it was easy to see and high use items were in easy reach. Rarely used items went straight to the top shelf.
This woodworking workshop was in need of some TLC. After adding mobile bases to most of the machines and sorting tools and discarding items that were beyond repair, this workshop is ready for the next woodworking projects.
With Covid forcing many people to work from home it became necessary to declutter this home office and transform it into a calm space that was ready for the client to work in. By changing some of furniture and removing items that do not belong into the office we created a much calmer, more functional space.
