Garages are one of the most common areas people have difficulty keeping in order. Most people perceive them as one giant storage bin, a catch-all area for things that really don’t have a place. These things add up and start going vertical after the horizontal space has been covered. In some cases, it is almost like living with a landfill attached to your house. Along with having a sore view to look at and live with, it is also a potential safety hazard!
When you think about doing the laundry, what do you picture?
Lugging a huge pile of dirty clothes into a damp, dimly-lit basement? Your washer and dryer shoved away in some dark corner?

When you had your first apartment, you told yourself “One day, I’ll have a bigger closet, and things will be much more organized.”
Now you’re a homeowner, with a big walk-in closet, and it’s still cluttered. It happens. It’s easy for a walk-in closet to become disorganized, but just as easy for you to pull things back together.
We all need better homes, not bigger ones.
How do you "grow from within" when it comes to your house? Look at your home from every possible angle to see if you can fix the existing floorplan without expanding. We have all seen the TV home improvement shows where folks rearrange furniture between rooms to create a new interior design. Or the shows where homeowners take out one minor wall and open up lots of space. And the ones where people add built-ins along the walls to minimize the amount of furniture needed.
There is more to tell! We shared earlier posts about a Dressing Room and Closet project we installed. It was for a very happy and excited client in Doylestown PA. However, we failed to show off one very prominent feature of this project: a Hollywood style mirror and vanity!
