Rethink Your Catch-all Space

January 9, 2017 § Leave a comment

Do you have a junk room or an area that attracts piles of stuff? As a home stager, I certainly do. But after walking by one area of chaos for long enough, I decided to rethink how to use that space in a more constructive way than simply a dumping ground. denbefore

Sometimes all you need to add new life to a space is a master plan and some creative furniture rearranging. And that’s what happened.

denafterI decided that the shelving from my office would be better suited along the den’s vertical wall space where I could then store some overflow items from the kitchen. That would clear off the kitchen counters and make me happy.

I moved the chairs around to create an actual sitting area and added a bar cart acquired as a leftover from my son’s move into a new condo. Amazing how much stuff you can pack into a house when you’re in the biz.

The end result? My pass-through, catch-all area is now a functioning space that makes me smile. Next up? A rethink of the office to accommodate extra bed linens and way too many pillows. I’m thinking another hanging rod in the closet and a floor-to-ceiling wall of cubes.

Did somebody deem January the Organization Month? Well, they got that right! Happy purging.
