When is the last time you looked around your house? I mean really looked! Have you become comfortable with your surroundings? It's nice to feel comfortable in your home but sometimes we get so comfortable we forget to take a close look at what can sometimes use some improvement.
Most recently, I had a client hire me to organize a few rooms in her home. When I first spoke with her, she was focusing on the home office and garage. After we spent some more time talking and she began to take a closer look around her home, she realized that it was more disorganized than she originally thought. She realized that not only did her home office and garage need some attention, but also her kitchen and bedrooms.
I mention this because we do tend to get "comfortable" and perhaps get used to seeing things the way they have been for so long and don't see that they might need some change. Sometimes it's function; sometimes it's design. Sometimes it's both.
The next time you walk through your home, do it with a fresh set of eyes and see what others might see that could use some improvement.
If you have difficulty figuring out what needs to be done, you might want to consider using a professional organizer to help you not only see the issues but with a fresh set of eyes, see the solutions. Every room has potential and sometimes you need a professional to show you what that potential can be.
If you have any questions about this topic or have any other organizing issues you would ike me to address, simply send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be glad to help.
