Clean, Organized Home

Living in a "cozy" home can have its challenges during the holiday season when oftentimes friends, family and neighbors stop in for parties, meals or a simple cup of coffee.

If you're looking to maximize your small spaces here is a list of our top three ideas:

  1. Look up! Floor space is always a hot commodity in "cozy" living rooms and kitchens. Instead of looking down at your floors for more room, look up and see how you can leverage your wall space. Installing cabinetry storage and bookcases and shelving are great ways to create space. And hanging pots and pans from a rack in the kitchen helps create more storage space in your kitchen cabinets.
  2. De-Clutter. Clutter from magazines, newspapers, shoes, toys and more is a great way to make your small space look even smaller! Utilizing storage pieces like magazine racks, toy boxes, and shoe racks make a designated place for the items that seem to pile up most.
  3. Mirror, Mirror on the Wall. Utilizing large wall-hanging mirrors is a great way to create the illusion of more space in any room.
