One of the things our clients almost always need is...MORE STORAGE. Unless it's a large addition or new build, it is sometimes impossible to add large closets or hidden pantries. Did you know that built-in storage is 30% more efficient?! Luckily for you, we found some great ways to add storage without doing any major renovating!

If you're still having trouble finding extra space, or your open shelves look a bit cluttered, it is probably time to purge some of your items. Use this spring cleaning season to clear off your shelves and organize your home.  It is important to keep purposeful items in thoughtful places. An organized home is the foundation for any design!Happy styling!    

 

Have a lovely weekend!
