The start of a new year is the perfect time to reflect. While 2020 hasn’t been the greatest for most of us, it’s certainly served as a reminder about how valuable our space is. As many people who have transitioned to working from home have realized, having a cluttered, disorganized space can lead to chaos and reduced productivity. To make sure that you’re starting the new year off on the right foot, take control of your space by organizing your closet and creating an efficient workspace in your home. Rather than simply telling yourself that organization and productivity is your resolution, take action today. By setting yourself up for success, you’ll be more likely to follow through and reap the benefits.

1.  Start with a Purge

There’s something about getting rid of things that can make us feel a little lighter. Whether it’s the physical removal of items themselves or the knowledge that we’re no longer holding onto unnecessary things, purging the closet is freeing. Go through all of your things and downsize. Start the new year off on the right foot by removing things that cause clutter and chaos.

2. Evaluate Your Space

Next, evaluate all your closet spaces. While purging things that you don’t need will free up some space, it’s not going to create an organizational oasis. Take the dimensions of your closet and then contact a professional at Closet Organizing Systems to get started on your unique, customizable closet organizing system.

3. Boost Productivity

If you have more than one closet that you want to reinvigorate, consider transforming a guest room or reach-in closet into a dual functioning home office space. While we’re hoping that things will return to normal soon, working from home seems to be here to stay for the foreseeable future. Closet Organizing Systems can help you create a workstation that performs without compromising form for function regardless of your available space.guest room


4. Plan Ahead

If you’re going to be moving in the new year, or re-modeling your home, take time to plan ahead for your closets. Increasing the amount of storage space in your home, especially in your closets, will help make your everyday life easier in the future. Consider what kind of features you’d want, how big the closets would be, how you will use your space, and what kind of organizational techniques you’d love to implement. Even if you aren’t moving, you can still plan your dream closet and contact Closet Organizing Systems to make it a reality. Our team of professional designers can transform your closet using the latest design industry trends, high-quality materials, and optimal organization tools.


5. Consider Aesthetics

During this process, you might as well go all out. The more you love your closet, the more you’re going to keep it organized after installation. Incorporate different colors, tones, types of woods, molding designs, decorate hardware, and any storage organizational accessories you can think of.
