Add space to your home by decluttering and organizing your home. The first place to start is your closets, drawers and storage bins.

One of the most common causes of disorganization is the accumulation of ‘junk’ or ‘stuff’, consequently this is where you want to start. Decluttering your home will free up space in your mind and allow you to properly see what you have and what you need. By decluttering regularly, you will be able to make more rational decisions about which items you should keep and which ones can be donated or sold. If you are feeling overwhelmed, take a moment to ask yourself these questions: · Do I need this in my life? · Does it bring me joy? · Is it still useful/helpful? Once you have answered these questions, proceed to throw away or donate items that don’t fit in with your new vision for your home. Also, consider re-purposing and using items in different ways than they were originally intended. For example, instead of storing books on shelves in your living room, choose a bookshelf or wall mounted display unit that can be easily moved and switched out as needed. Keeping items out in the open also helps with decluttering because instead of having to search for an item before throwing it away or donating it, you can find it right when you need it. Finally, if there is something in your house that never gets used or isn’t as functional as you would like, consider replacing it with a more functional version or better item altogether.

It might seem odd to begin with the idea of decluttering but very often your need for more space is precieved as the result of years of accumulation of "stuff". When you talk to Robyn, one of the first things you'll consider is what are the essentials of your given space. Only after taking a deep dive in your existing space can really start the process of adding new space. If you don't go through this process guess what happens? In a year from new, the new space looks like the old space and you're right back where you began. 

You have many choices for adding space in your home. Repurpose on old room ... perhaps a family member has left the nest. Upgrade the basement or the attic space. Open up a room by knocking out a wall to another room that is underutilized. There are many possibilities. It's definitely worth a call to discuss! Call Robyn.
