Organized Art Studio

If sharpened pencils, color coded construction paper, custom garage cabinets and labeled drawers make you happy than this post is for you! Disclaimer: there are no before and afters to help you feel better about your unorganized craft room or garage, just pretty pictures!

We’ll start with the art studio which is located in the back  of the garage. My client had the space finished with drywall and custom cabinets after we moved her in to her new home in October.  Taylor and I spent 2 days unpacking and organizing all of the garage items and loose ends from the move.

Teen Closet Tranformation

Feb 27, 2014

The blog has been overtaken with estate sale previews over the last 8 weeks and I don’t want you to get the wrong idea.  We are still organizing over here!  Today I wanted to share a project that we worked on last week with one of the teens from the National Charity League.  Last November I spoke to her local chapter about my home organization business and the 6 steps I follow at each session. At the end I gave away a 4 hour bedroom organizing session and she was the winner.

Working with kids, especially teenage girls is one of my favorite organizing projects to work on.  It is such a great opportunity to help them transform their rooms and teach them valuable organizing skills that they can use for the rest of their lives!

Kuzak's Closet 8 Weeks to Home Organization Bliss! Living Rooms

It is truly amazing how living rooms have a tendency to look cluttered when just a few items are out of place. Shoes stuck under the couch, an overflowing book shelf, stacks of magazines on a table, that excessive number of remote controls – all can transform your comfortable living room into a mound of stress. In most living rooms a few organizing tweaks can save you time, energy and stress.

With this week’s tips, tricks and before & after pictures I hope you will be inspired to have a comfortable living room. If not, I encourage you to comment below with some questions or frustrations. If you have success I want to hear about that too!

Kuzak's Closet 8 Weeks to Home Organization Bliss! Garage

Is there any better place to stash your trash than the garage? We all do it! Unfortunately, the garage is one of the most daunting projects for my clients and I can easily see why. But don’t be afraid, it is completely doable! The most important thing to remember when planning any major organization project is to give yourself plenty of time.  Some of my garage projects can be achieved in a day – some as long as a week. Be realistic with your garage goals and you will be on your way.

With this week’s tips, tricks and before & after pictures I hope it will be enough to get you started on organizing your garage. If not, I encourage you to comment below with some questions or frustrations. If you have success I want to hear about that too!

Kuzak's Closet 8 Weeks to Home Organization Bliss! Bathrooms

My 8-week series continues with … Bathrooms! The bathroom is usually the smallest room in a house yet it stores an overwhelming number of items: toiletries, first aid supplies, prescription medicines, beauty products … and nearly every woman has at minimum a small collection of makeup and perfume. Because the bathroom contains so many different items, all with different shapes and sizes, function and consistency of use, it is really easy to see why it is one of my clients least favorite rooms to tackle. So why bother with the bathroom? Like the kitchen pantry the bathroom is a place where a lot of money and time is lost because of duplication, expiration dates and a shortage of adequate storage solutions.

With this week’s tips, tricks and before & after pictures I hope it will be enough to get you started on organizing your bathroom. If not, I encourage you to comment below with some questions or frustrations. If you have success I want to hear about that too!

Kuzak's Closet 8 Weeks to Home Organization Bliss! Master Closet

I really enjoy working in master closets. I know, I say that about every room – but I do! Unlike some areas of the house the master closet is ultra-personal and needs to be used by you on a daily basis. When it is out of control, you feel out of control. I get a lot of calls from clients who think their biggest closet issue is that they are woefully short on space. They rarely are. The issue is usually too much stuff that they don’t need or want. When a closet gets jammed packed it ceases to be functional and just becomes a dumping ground. Slowly, the closet chaos starts to spill out in the rest of the room with clothes on chairs, the bed, the floor and ultimately a massive laundry pile on the dining room table or couch because it has nowhere to go – one big cluttered mess of clothes and shoes.

With this week’s tips, tricks and before & after pictures you should have a good amount of resources to get started on organizing your master closet. If not, I encourage you to comment below with some questions or frustrations. If you have success I want to hear about that too! This is week three of my series 8 Weeks to Home Organization Bliss!, previous week posts include: Week 1 – Kitchen & Pantry and Week 2 – Kid’s Rooms & Playrooms.

Kuzak's Closet 8 Weeks to Home Organization Bliss! Children's Bedroom & Playroom

I am so excited by the response from the first part of my series, 8 Weeks to Home Organization Bliss: Week 1 – Kitchen and Panty! This week I am sharing some of my best tips and tricks for kid’s bedrooms and playrooms. Some of my favorite organizing projects have been working directly with children to organize their personal spaces. I find that when a child takes part in the process they feel a really positive connection with the final product. If everyone gets on board with keeping both areas as clutter-free as possible the stress-level and frustration will be much more manageable! Let’s keep the momentum going, please feel free to leave comments, ask questions or post some of your own helpful tips.
