Last week I had the privlege of working with a new client who asked me to help her organize her Sun Room. It is a room in her home that her husband has not been able to enjoy for several years due to the clutter that had been building up on the furniture and floor in the room. It was intended to be a quiet get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. That was not the case. It only created anxiety and frustration due to the amount of clutter it contained.
My client wanted to get this room organized for her husband as a birthday present for him. I gladly took on the assignment.
The clutter in the home had gotten to the point of it being so bad that it was affecting the couple's marriage. The marriage was on the verge of ending if the clutter that had been accumulating for many years was not cleaned up. My client was stuck. She was overwhelmed and did not know where to even begin.
This is a situation that, unfortunately, I am all to familiar with. Clutter can, in fact, cause permanent damage to a marriage if it gets out of control and cannot be remedied by the spouse who created it.
Needless to say, my client recognized that she needed help in order to get the house back in order and begin to work on saving her marriage. She hoped that the Sun Room would be the first of several projects we would work on together.
My client had asked her husband, unbeknownst to him that it was going to be a present for him, if he had a choice, which room in the home he would like to see organized. He said the Sun Room. He expressed to her that he was extremely doubtful that this room could ever return to its normal condition, let alone in one session, but was willing to have me come into the home and work with his wife.
And so, the project began. For four hours, my client and I went through the contents that had piled up in the room and either relocated it to the proper room elsewhere in the home, organized it within the room, or threw it away. With some interior redesign, I created the clutter free and spaceous room that he desired.
My client was so thrilled with the outcome by the end of the session that she cried and hugged me, thanking me profusely for creating A Better Space for her husband to enjoy. She was hopeful that when he came home, he would be as excited as she was and would ask me to come back to do further work with his wife in their home.
Before I could even get back to my office following this session, I received a phone message from my client advising that her husband did, in fact, walk through the door and was "blown away" by what had been accomplished and, following their vacation, intends to have me return to do other projects in the home.
I was thrilled that I was able to bring such joy to both of my clients and get such a great reaction from the husband.
In a lot of instances, my clients are not able to visualize how such a cluttered space can become A Better Space, but, fortunately, I can.
Unlike my clients who cannot see past the clutter, as a professional organizer, I am able to see the potential of any given space and, with that, can bring their dream of a clutter free and organized room to fruition.
If you want to be "blown away", contact A Better Space so we can discuss your particular situation and how I can make this happen in your home!
