August is a busy month for all three of the greater Vancouver Tailored Living dealerships. Of course, summer time always brings holidays, and many of us have already traveled this summer or have plans to do so before the summer is over. Juggling vacation plans and busy workloads is keeping us on our toes this summer, with closet and garage renovations topping the list as the most requested jobs these days.
Since we’ll be rolling into fall sooner than you probably want to think about, we wanted to take this opportunity to talk about closets. Closets are always on people’s minds during that transition from summer to fall, probably because along with it comes the transition from tank tops and short sleeves to bulky sweaters and overcoats. Somehow the space in the closet seems to shrink in the fall, and home owners start to get frustrated with their closets all over again.
Instead of going through closet angst every fall, now is a good time to start thinking about a little bit of closet rehab. That summer-to-fall transition is always a great time to do a comprehensive clean-out, getting rid of things that are outgrown or out-of-style and pass them on to a local charity organization.
We’ve addressed the issue of cutting down on clutter before, getting your closet ready for fall and other closet-related tips. We highly recommend you take a few minutes to revisit these old blogs for inspiration and ideas.
Getting organized isn’t easy, and, no matter how you try to look at it, not very fun either. But in the end if you can stay on top of closet clutter your life at home will be a little easier. Don’t let lack of inspiration be the thing that stops you, either. TailoredLiving.com is full of ideas and custom solutions that can help you make the most of the space in your closet, even if your closets are small. Check out some of our closet solutions, or browse our online brochure, which is filled with real-life stories that will probably resonate with you on some level.
We also know that sometimes it just takes a fresh pair of eyes to come in to your home and see the possibilities that you can’t. When you’ve lived in your home for a while and looked at your closet several times a day for weeks, months or years, it can be very hard to envision the potential it actually has. Bringing in one of Tailored Living’s home organization experts can be an eye-opening experience. They’ll have all kinds of ideas you probably never even thought of, and access to products that can be completely customized to accommodate the things that you want to store in your closet. Consultations are always free and come with no obligation to purchase anything. Once our customers really understand what is available to them, though, they are almost always eager to get us to come back.
