Pantries are quintessential organizers. It is sometimes shocking how the addition of shelves, cubbies, cabinets, and other organizing built-ins can change a room. All rooms start out with blank walls, and then we add finishes and cabinetry that create a place to live.
Mudrooms can be simple or elaborate with sinks and cabinets. Cubbies, shelves, coat hooks, and benches complete the organizational pallet in a mudroom.
Kitchens have a lot of things to organize, from dishes to pots and pans, appliances to spices. Most kitchens we design have a mix of open shelves and closed cabinets, sometimes with glass fronts, other times with solid wood.
Laundry rooms are another space that benefits greatly from organization.
Bathrooms that are well-organized lead to greater marital bliss (at least according to my unscientific poll).
Children’s bedrooms pose a special challenge. Having helped raise three children, I understand how quickly any room can become a disaster with kids. Good organization in young people’s rooms is paramount.
Closets are another space that deserves organizing.
A home office needs organization to work. There are many ways to organize, and home offices run the gamut from controlled chaos to perfect organization.
A wine cellar, almost by definition, needs to be organized; otherwise, you wouldn’t be able to find your wine.
Dining rooms can be organized by something as simple as a piece of furniture or as elaborate as a wall of cabinetry.
Home Gyms need to be organized so that they work well. The location of equipment is paramount.
