With this week’s tips and pictures I hope you will be inspired to create or re-organize your own Home Command Center and I invite my readers to comment below with any questions or frustrations.

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.

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 Week Organizing Series Kitchen and Pantry

I get requests from a lot of clients asking for help re-organizing their kitchen and pantry, which I absolutely love. Every kitchen I have organized is completely different and I don’t just mean design. Before I can start a kitchen and pantry project the most important questions I ask clients are about every-day functionality. One client might exclusively eat take-out but enjoys to bake. Another client might have a large family with a revolving pantry. Last week I was asked to help a family re-work their kitchen and pantry for a parent who has lost their sight – the importance of clear counters and lower shelf access is a necessity!

As I launch Week 1 of my 8-week series my hope is that the tips, tricks and before & after sample pictures will help you get your home projects off the ground with as little stress and hassle as possible. Please feel free to leave comments, ask questions or post some of your own helpful tips.
