As Professional Organizers, we are privy to the private worlds our clients so graciously invite us into. The spectrum of clutter varies from home to home, yet the same issue stands true for each disgruntled soul – storage. No matter how much cupboard space we possess, weâre always longing for more. Although throwing some plastic bins at the problem seems easy enough, creating a serene living space for our clients is the utmost of importance. Which, is why we stress the relevance of choosing furniture for not only design aesthetics, but for function as well.
Clearly the space we have to work with facilitates our approach. Organizing a 600 square foot urban condo is a far cry from the estate located north of the city. When dealing with a small space, every piece needs to have a dual function. For example, a sofa bedÂ not only offers a solution for comfortable living, but doubles as a guest bed should the need arise. A coffee table thatâs designed with drawers or an ottoman with a hinged top, allows for additional storage to conceal clutter such as remotes, DVDâs or childrenâs toys. Again, function AND flare can work in tandem.
Although we promote clear surfaces for easy living and a minimalistic approach to our clientâs surroundings, inspiration and beauty still need a place within our homes. Oversized artwork Â would bring warmth and interest within a larger room. Striking vases and sculptures that inspire are a welcome addition to coffee tables, nightstands and consoles. Often when we surround ourselves with beautiful things, weâre less likely to want clutter to overtake the space.
Regardless of where or how you live, your furniture remains the anchor of your home. More often than not, it moves with you and stands the test of time. So, choose wisely, consider function, versatility and never be frightened to introduce some flare. www.decorium.com has you covered for any space.
