Another office. Again, the key items are all still there, they're just arranged in a way that's far more useful to the owner. What the above two examples can't show is the importance of an organized paper-management system. It's the key to conquering office clutter!
It's always tough to see someone so challenged by life that they're finding it difficult to function. The person whose home is shown below was dealing with severe physical challenges and the complications that can come up as a result of that. Ongoing assistance has been needed, but together we're gradually bringing the home into a state where it offers a restful and supportive space, instead of being one more challenge.
Clearing the door areas
has given an
entirely different feel
to the home.
Slowly, over time, the bathroom shown below became a storage area. Reclaiming the space improved the functionality of the home, and the space can now be kept clean with minimal effort.
With the bathroom's lower cupboards again fully accessible, it became easier to organize the items on the countertop. Like many of us, this person streamlines their life by buying multiples of commonly used consumables. In the "after" photo shown below, everything useful is still there, but it's effectively stored so the bathroom counter space is now open and inviting.
Some organizing projects, like the one above, take a gentle, steady effort over time. In these cases, one service that a professional organizer can provide is to help identify the priority areas. What changes will make an immediate, strong improvement in the person's quality of life? The answers are different for each person. A trained organizer will help each individual to develop an organizing game plan that will best meet that person's specific needs.
Each of the above custom solutions was worked out with the active participation of the owner. This helps to ensure that the final solution will feel natural and be as easy as possible for the owner to maintain. Clients who book on-going services typically find that "maintenance" takes a fraction of the original organizing time.
