How to Manage Small Spaces

Challenged by Small Spaces?

Are your spaces so small that no amount of organizing seems to work? Is your home bursting because there is nowhere to put anything away?

This year’s Philadelphia Home Show has a theme of “Small Spaces”. The recent trend of Tiny Homes makes this theme a perfect fit! Many, without even opting into the Tiny Home movement, are faced with the challenges of tight spaces every day.Philadelphia Home Show

At the show, visitors get a chance to browse the latest home design concepts and products. They can also get home improvement tips from presenters like Tyler Wisler from HGTV’s Design Star and Kevin O’Connor of This Old House. And, if that’s not reason enough to weather the cold, I will be also be there, sharing tips, tricks and secrets for managing your tight spaces and living a clutter-free life.

When it comes to busy lives and challenging spaces, organization and creativity are key.

Implementing systems that address the challenges of your cramped spaces will add a sense of freedom and a feeling of control. Imagine this: you have all your supplies neatly arranged and tidily stored. There is no searching, digging, shuffling or juggling – each time you need them. Think of how quickly and easily you could come and go, confident that all you are walking away from is in order. Ahhhh, the peace of it.

Like the physical foundations of our homes, a free and organized life needs a foundation in order to be sustainable. Sometimes this means adding organizational products in order to create a “home” for the items we use. At other times it means removing unnecessary excess from the environment. And, it almost always means having a set of basic foundational rules in place so that habits can be formed that will maintain the system.
