When you first move into your home it seems like you have so much space. As the years pass, things and stuff accumulate. Perhaps it’s time to weed out the unnecessary items, and get some real organization at home going for your room design plans.
At home organization is a step-by-step process that can actually be simple. Plus, you also need to involve your family. Not only can you enlist their help, but you want them to learn to organize the clutter with you, and get into new, good habits.
Then, everyone will appreciate that gorgeous new room design!
It will take more than a day or even a week to get everything to a manageable level, but once you do, your home organization and staying organized for your room design plans become a much easier task.
Here’s a little free inspiration from House Beautiful. I always find that a gorgeous photo of a room design tends to get me going on organization ideas…

And here are some basic steps to guide you to your new room design home organization…
The nice thing, is that the first 3 steps, are free…just some time and work to get to your new room design.
Home Organization Room Design Prep #1. Start with the high traffic areas. The living room and kitchen are usually the two most used rooms in the house. Everything gets dropped on a counter or the couch in these two places, right? For more successful home organization, concentrate on getting everything set up the way that you like it in these two important rooms first, before moving on to another room.
Home Organization Room Design Prep #2. Divide items into categories. You can use heavy-duty trash bags for this part. Everything that you find can go into 3 piles: KEEP, THROW AWAY, GIVE AWAY FREE, and RELOCATE.
Items that will stay in that room are to keep. Things that you don’t need or are broken can be thrown away. Clothes or furniture still in great condition can be donated and scheduled for pickup by the Veteran’s association, Big Brother’s or Goodwill. Anything that definitely belongs in another room can be labeled for storage and relocation when you get to that room in your home.
Home Organization Room Design Prep #3. Remove everything from drawers and cabinets. This is a time-consuming process but it is easier to start with an empty space for a room design and fill it, instead of simply pushing things around. Line things up on the counter, then someone else can help by putting the items in their KEEP, THROW AWAY, GIVE AWAY FREE or RELOCATE order.
Home Organization Room Design Prep #4. Use storage containers. The style of storage containers has upgraded to be pretty as well as functional in your home room design. Purchase storage containers that match your décor in each room design, and integrate them so that no one would even notice they were being used for storage…

Home Organization Room Design Prep #5. Make use of all of your available space. Stack stylish storage containers under the stairwell, or arranged against a wall like art. Make them your coffee or sofa table.
In the kitchen, use the top of the refrigerator for cereal boxes and breakfast food like boxes of instant oatmeal or grits. In the bedroom, shoes and winter clothes can go into flat storage bins that slide easily under the bed or the dresser.

Home Organization Room Design Prep Bonus Tip:
Label your room containers. Use tape and a permanent marker to identify the contents of your storage containers. Avoid writing on the actual container in case they are re-used and the contents are changed. Labeling also makes for easy identification if you decide to sell or give away free a container of books or something else. You won’t have to open each container to locate them.
Organizing your entire home for a room design takes time. But once it is done, returning everything you use to its proper place will maintain that same level of organization you worked so hard to achieve at home.
