Three Ways to Organize the Clothes in Your Closet

clothes-2150834_960_720When hanging clothing in the closet, many people simply place items on hangers and throw them haphazardly onto the closet rod. They do this because organizing their hanging clothes seems like a task that will take too long. What they don’t realize is that organizing hanging garments need only take minutes to perhaps an hour, and that it won’t take long for you to see returns on that effort in the form of time saved desperately hunting for that shirt or pair of pants you wanted to wear on a given day.

The point of a system is to simplify your life by saving you time and making it easy to find what you’re looking for. If you’re not sure how best to find a good system, we have three of the most popular ideas for you as suggested by professional organizers. Organize clothing:

1) By item type. Split up your rod into sections or “zones.” (You don’t literally have to separate the sections if you don’t want to, but some people find it helpful to do so. One easy way to do this is to put a colored hanger or piece of duct tape between each section.) Put like garments in their own sections. You may have one section for shirts, one for pants, one for skirts, one for suits, etc. You can break it down even further if you want (like having one section for short-sleeved shirts and one section for long-sleeved shirts).

seasons-158601_960_7202) By season. Hang Autumn clothes in one section, Spring in another, and so on. You can have a fifth section for clothing that transcends all seasons, like the short-sleeved shirt that you wear by itself in the spring and summer and under a heavy blazer in the Fall and Winter.

colorful-620520_960_7203) By color. This is a great system for people who are highly-visual and color-conscious when it comes to their wardrobes. Each color goes into its own section. If you like, you can break it down further by putting like garments together within their corresponding sections. For instance, your “blue” section could be divided into pants, shirts, jackets, etc. in blue, and so on.

There’s no “right” or “wrong” way. The point is to find a system that makes sense and works with your lifestyle so that you aren’t wasting time (especially those elusive and fleeting early morning hours) trying to find that one blouse or your favorite pair of pants.

Here are a few more closet organization tips that are helpful no matter what system you use:

clothes-hangers-582212_960_720* Use the same type of hangers for everything in your closet. This may sound trivial, but it can be very frustrating to have three or four (or more) different kinds of hangers in one’s closet. The problem is that different hangers mean your clothing is hanging at different heights, making it harder to condense the clothing in your closet to maximize space. Additionally, some types of hangers are not made for certain rods. If the crook is too big, hangers (and clothes) may fall to the floor. If the crook is too small, you may end up having to jam the hanger onto the rod to get it to fit.

* Avoid wire hangers. You probably have tons of them; most people do. Wire hangers, like the ones that the drycleaner sends your clothes home with, are abundant because they are cheap. However, they aren’t the greatest when it comes to everyday performance. They are too flimsy for heavier garments and often end up on the floor. They also tend to make the shape of your clothes look weird, leaving little points and creases in your clothing (especially conspicuous places like the shoulders of your shirts). Wire hangers (even coated ones) rust and may leave permanent stains on your garments. Opt instead for wood, durable plastic or cloth padded hangers. You can even find “low profile” hangers in a variety of sturdy materials than not only treat your clothes more gently, but also help to maximize the space in your closet and on your rod.

FullyFunctional-1* Employ a two-tiered rod system. We’ve never, ever heard a home owner say, “I have more than enough room in my closet to hang my clothes.” Almost everyone could use more hanging space, but few have the luxury of making a bigger closet. However, with some clever manipulating and efficient hanging techniques, you can create a two-tiered rod system that essentially doubles the space that you have to hang clothing.

* Perform regular surgery on the clothes in your closet. In other words, remove items that you no longer wear. If you haven’t worn it in a long time, but you’re not sure you want to get rid of it entirely, create a section or zone in your closet for those “maybe” items. If it hangs there untouched for months, it’s probably safe to get rid of it. Regularly paring back and removing clothes you don’t wear will keep your system of organization running smoothly and save you loads of frustration as well as some of those precious morning minutes.

Closet Dreams: Top Seven Closet Mods Moms Must Have

TL walk_in_closet2_organization_by_tailored_livingWe hope all you Moms had a beautiful Mother’s Day this past Sunday and that you got spoiled by your kids and grandchildren. There’s no one else on earth who can fill your shoes, but if you’re a Mom whose shoes fill most of your closet, we have the right solution for you. After all, doesn’t every girl dream of having a walk-in closet with a mirror, dressing room lighting, room for a hundred pairs of shoes (or more), and a section for every season of clothing?

For a lot of women, the ultimate walk-in closet is but a dream. However, no matter what size her closet is, it CAN be tailored to meet some of those personal dreams. In honor of Mother’s Day, we have decided to dedicate this post to all of those Moms out there who tirelessly give of themselves to make sure that their children and grandchildren are cared for and loved unconditionally. However, these mods are really for ladies of any age, with or without children. Check out the top seven closet mods that Tailored Living installs in women’s closets:

1) Shoe shelves: Shoes are an obsession that most guys will just never understand. Just because she already has ten pairs of black shoes doesn’t mean she doesn’t need another black pair because they’re all different and they all have very different purposes, right girls? However, accumulating shoes can eventually become a problem because you only have so much floor space in your closet, and even over-the-door shoe holders fill up fast. That’s why Mom will love Tailored Living’s shoe shelves. Individual shelves tiltshoe fence downward so that you can easily see what’s on it, even if it’s up high. A built-in fence keeps shoes from sliding off. Each shelf typically holds two to four pairs of shoes, but the design can be adjusted to accommodate more or less, depending on how much space you have to work with in your closet.

spiral-shoe-rack2) Spiral shoe rack: An alternative to the shoe shelf, the spiral shoe rack can hold up to 25 pairs of shoes. Shoes hang from specialized hooks on a spinning carousel device so they’re not only easy to access, they retain their shape better.

3) Pull-out mirror: A full-length mirror is mounted on a sliding rack. This allows her to pull out the mirror when she needs it. It slides back against the wall or inside a cabinet, depending on how it’s mounted, so that it doesn’t take up space when it’s not in use.

4) Spiral clothing rack: It’s kind of like having her own personal shopping boutique right in her closet! The spiral clothing rack allows for hanging up of typical clothing items, like dresses, and is ideal for funky closet corners where space might otherwise simply be wasted.

5) Custom drawer dividers: These are really simple and inexpensive to install, yet they ACC0 make a big difference when it comes to maximizing space and efficiency. Drawer dividers ensure that small items like socks, undergarments and accessories don’t get all mixed up in her drawers.

accessory hook6) Accessory hooks: This is another simple mod that can make Mom’s closet SO much more organized. Tailored Living’s accessory hooks come in a variety of shapes and configurations, and they are ideal for things like necklaces, scarves, hats, belts, purses and many other small to medium-size items.

7) Valet rod: Yet another simple and relatively inexpensive closet mod that is perfect for the working professional. It’s a clothing rod that’s housed in a track mounted on the side valet rodof cabinet or shelf. It takes up virtually no space when not in use. To use, she simply pulls the rod out. There’s just enough room to hang up tomorrow’s outfit so she doesn’t have to waste time hunting for it in the morning.

These seven closet mods are only a very small sampling of the incredibly-useful ones that Tailored Living installs in closets every single week. And don’t worry, Tailored Living can transform the guy’s closet, too. You can view some of the closets we’ve transformed and check out the accessories that can make your closet fabulous on our closet customization page.

Home Organization Hacks: 85 Ways to Use Slatwall In Your Home to Make Life Saner

laundry room slatwallOne of the most versatile and, therefore, popular products over the years that we’ve been serving the Greater Vancouver market has been our slatwall  product. Slatwall consists of wood planks with grooves in between that can be installed over drywall. You’re probably familiar with slatwall even if you don’t realize it or recognize it readily. It’s sometimes used by retailers in stores to hang and display their wares for shoppers. Thanks to its excellent functionality and versatility, it has begun to catch on in the home, too.

The grooves in slatwall allow for quick and easy placement of hooks and hooked devices or containers. Once you place the hooks, previously unused wall space becomes practical storage space for a variety of different types of items. Best of all, you aren’t locked into a particular configuration when it comes to the things you hook into your slats. You can rearrange them any way, any time you need to. Your wall can be changed when your needs change without ever having to change the wall itself.

Tailored Living most often installs slatwall in garages, but slatwall can actually be used in any part of the home. In fact, we have installed it in laundry rooms, home offices and even bedrooms. Don’t worry… slatwall isn’t strictly utilitarian. Although extremely practical, it looks amazing, too. It can even be painted to match or complement an existing color scheme in whatever part of the house you want it.

Once you’ve installed your slatwall, you can adapt and customize it to your needs using a variety of storage maximizing accessories. As already mentioned, hooks are common, but you can also insert baskets, bins and shelves. You can insert them in seconds and move or remove them just as easily.

Here are 85 slatwall hacks for every room in your home that might inspire (or surprise) you.

10 Garage Maintenance Tasks You Should Tackle This Spring

lego-568039_960_720We feel like we are pretty safe in saying that spring has finally arrived in Greater Vancouver, even though it has been pretty wet so far. At least the snow is finished, and with cherry blossoms exploding everywhere and warmer weather even on cloudy days, it’s hard to be too bothered by the rain.

Of course, spring also means “spring cleaning.” It’s a tradition the origin of which is difficult to pinpoint. Nevertheless, it’s a smart thing to do when you own a home (no matter how big or small). Since we are experts in all things garage, and since this part of the house probably gets the least amount of attention, we thought it would be timely to draw attention to some spring cleaning maintenance tasks for the garage. By spending a little extra time at this time of year, you can save yourself hassle, grief and even more time the rest of the year.

1) Tidy up. Why do people spring clean the living areas of their home but neglect the garage? Spring is a great time to tackle the garage, too. Purge the space of items you don’t use or need anymore and take the time to organize everything else. Check out these spring garage cleaning tips from one of our previous posts: https://tailoredlivingvancouver.wordpress.com/2016/02/16/spring-cleaning-and-organizing-in-the-garage-is-easier-this-year/

2) Sweep and clean your entire garage floor. This is super important, because you probably dragged in all kinds of dirt, gravel and muck over the winter which isn’t good for your floors or for your vehicle’s tires.

3) Inspect your garage door. Are all of its parts in good working order or does anything need to be replaced? Give its moving parts (tracks, springs, hinges, rollers, etc.) a garagecleaning if needed by gently brushing away dirt and grease clumps with a soft-bristled brush and then lubricate them with a garage door lubricant.

4) Remove winter window coverings, if you have any.

5) Remove and replace worn weather stripping.

Optional and Periodic Garage Maintenance Tasks:

1) Patch holes and cracks in your garage floor.

2) Re-coat/re-seal your garage floor. The frequency with which you’ll need to do this depends on what your floor is made of and what kind of sealant (if any) is already on it. If it’s time for a new sealant, check out our exclusive PremierOne® Garage Floor Coatings. Depending on what type you choose, our coatings are guaranteed to last for a specific length of time, meaning you don’t have to reseal year after year.

painting-black-paint-roller3) Repair dents and nicks in drywall and repaint.

4) Have your garage door professionally inspected and make any repairs or parts replacements that are needed.

5) Conduct a full-out purging and re-organize your garage. Maybe it’s been awhile since you’ve tackled the clutter in your garage. Or, maybe you’ve been doing regular tidying up, but the accumulation of stuff has outpaced your ability to keep on top of being organized. Whatever your reasons, sometimes a garage interior reorganization is necessary in order to maintain your own sanity and keep clutter and accumulation under control.

If clutter is an ongoing problem in your garage, maybe it’s time for a complete garage storage overhaul. Tailored Living has hundreds of solutions and a plan that’s made just for you and the space that you have to work with. It doesn’t matter if your garage is small… Tailored Living can design solutions that perfectly fit the space you do have.

Help… This Crazy Winter Is Killing My Garage Floor!

background-1069924_960_720Who would have predicted that Greater Vancouver would have the kind of winter it did this year? Not that snow is an impossibility here, but the sheer volume we received from North and West Vancouver all the way into the Chilliwack area has been unexpected and out-of-the-ordinary, to say the least. All kinds of old snowfall records were dashed to pieces this year with all of the white stuff that has fallen since December of 2016 until now.

Since it’s now officially spring, our fingers are crossed that we’ll soon see some signs of spring emerging. However, more snow is not out of the question, and even if it doesn’t snow again, we’re in for a wet spring this year. That being said, your garage floor may be taking an extra-hard beating in 2017, so we thought it would be a good idea to revisit some of the excellent garage flooring options that Tailored Living offers, which are ideal for life on the Wet West Coast, and how they will protect your cement foundation from all of this moisture.

PremierOne® Floor Coatings: The PremierOne® formula is exclusive to Tailored Living. In other words, you won’t be able to find this product anywhere else. We can’t tell you about the top-secret ingredients in this amazing product, but we can tell you what they will do for your floor: create a continuous, non-porous surface, filling all of those microscopic holes in your concrete and sealing them tight. The process begins with one of our professional installers who will machine-prep the surface of your garage floor. This is a critical part of the installation process because it removes any contaminants (oil spots, stains, dirt, etc.) that might prevent the coating from bonding fully to the concrete.

TL-Before-After-BlogAfter machining, the coating is applied right away so that it is able to sink right into the pores in the concrete, forming a seal that will act as a total barrier between your floor and any stuff that might end up on it, including water, mud and anything else that might get dragged in on your tires. In fact, the exclusive epoxy resin forms a bond that is twice as thick as other floor coatings and which is resistant to spills of all types, like oil, paint and household chemicals. Simply wipe away spills with a soft, dry cloth. No water is typically needed to clean up. Any dry debris can be easily swept away with a soft broom, or, even better, a dust mop (to prevent scratches).

premierone-decorative-texture-steelhead-micro-titleOur PremierOne® Floor Coatings are available in a variety of colors and styles including solid colors (six different ones to choose from) and our most popular Decorative Textures. PremierOne® Decorative Texture coatings come in 18 standard chip color blends. You also have the option of blending colors to create your own custom, one-of-a-kind design floor. You can also choose between ¼ chips or 1/8 inch chips. This seemingly small difference in chip size can actually make a dramatic difference in the appearance,  giving you a garage floor with a truly custom look and feel.

premiertrax-blue-titlePremierTrax Tiles: These easy-installation, no-glue garage floor tiles are semi-permanent and removable. Each tile is made from and 8 percent rubber in a polypropylene mix, making them extremely durable yet also flexible. Not only that, but they are actually ergonomically healthier on feet and knees. Tiles feature an open-weave design which traps dirt and debris. Simply hose away to remove.

Tiles are designed to interlock with one another, so installation is literally as easy as building with Lego. Our professionals can usually install your entire floor in a matter of hours, and you can drive, work or play on your floor as soon as it’s finished. Our PremierTrax tiles come in 18 colors from earth tones to primary colors to bright and contemporary hues. One of the best things about this is that you can choose to create a floor that is one or two colors, or use several colors and create geometric patterns that are totally unique to your home and to whatever suits your garage space. Best of all, these tiles are so well-engineered that we are confident in backing them with a guarantee for as long as you own your home.

Of course, accidents do happen. In the event that a tile does become damaged (say by accidentally dropping a running saw onto the floor), all you have to do is swap out the damaged tile(s) for a brand new one and lock it in place. It is one of the most practical and cost-efficient flooring solutions on the planet, and you can use it in other places too, not just the garage. We have clients who have had PremierTrax installed on decks and patios (it’s totally weather-resistant), in playrooms, bedrooms, rec rooms and basements.

When it comes to water (which is why we are blogging on this topic in the first place), the channels in each tile serve to funnel moisture away from the garage floor’s surface, keeping it dry and safe. You don’t have to worry about skidding or puddles of water collecting on the floor.

Again, cleaning involves simply hosing down the floor periodically. How frequently you’ll need to do this depends on how heavily-used your garage is and what kinds of activities typically go on inside. Aiming for two to four times a year is probably sufficient for most home owners purposes.

Here at Tailored Living, Coquitlam, we truly hope that winter is over too. We’re ready for some spring. We’re also ready to help you solve your garage flooring problems. Spring is a great time to install a new floor, and you’ll be ready not only for the rest of this year’s rainy season,  but also next winter, too. We just hope it’s less white.

Are Harmful VOC’s Lurking in Your House?

PART 2: GREAT, NOW WHAT?

skull-1426813_960_720VOC exposure on an individual level can be difficult to control, and fortunately, you probably don’t have to worry too much about getting sick from exposure if you don’t work with VOCs every day. However, if you feel like it’s important to do your small part in limiting the amount of VOCs that come into your home and get spread into the surrounding environment,

1) If possible, avoid using products containing VOCs. This is not always going to be possible, but there are more and more products coming into the market that are VOC-free. Opt for those whenever they are available.

2) Take the right precautions when using products containing VOCs. Proper ventilation is face-mask-98640_960_720number one on the list. For example, if you are painting your home’s interior, open the windows so that VOC fumes don’t accumulate indoors. Crack the bathroom window open if you’re painting your nails or removing nail polish. When using household cleaners, use the least amount that is needed to do the job effectively. Wear a mask while painting or working with other VOCs, particularly if you must be exposed for more than a few minutes.

3) Get to know the names of the types of VOC’s you are likely to run into when purchasing household products. Here’s partial list of some of the most common ones:

safety-44441_960_720

* Formaldehyde (yes, the same stuff they use to pickle biological specimens for preservation)

* Acetone

* Ethanol

* Carbon Disulfide

* Butanal

* Terpenes

* Toluene

* Dichlorobenzene

* Benzene

4) Opt for products with labels that say “No VOC’s” or “VOC-free.” If the label doesn’t say, check the list of ingredients to see if any of the above chemicals appear.

Why Does Tailored Living Care About VOC’s?

PremierOne Elements flooring in “Copper”

Tailored Living is committed to doing its part for both the environment and for its customers. When it comes to VOC’s, we don’t want them in our products. Because VOC’s are commonly found in floor coatings (something Tailored Living works with frequently), we made sure they didn’t go into any of our exclusive, proprietary-blend garage floor coatings. Tailored Living’s PremierOne® Floor Coatings are VOC-free and create a permanent chemical bond with concrete floors. This super-strong bond means you won’t have to worry about your floor peeling. Not only that, but it will protect and preserve your concrete, which will increase its life span.

 

One of the best things about our PremierOne® Floor Coatings is that they’re not just aesthetically beautiful; they’re also practical. They won’t chip or fade, and they are ultra-stain resistant. In fact, the glossy finish repels stains and spills of all kinds, including the things you commonly keep in the garage, like gasoline, motor oil and cleaning fluids. Spills wipe up easily with a dry cloth, and the sealed barrier will not allow liquids of any kind (including water tracked in by tires) to penetrate to the concrete below.

At the end of the day, you get a garage floor that is protective and made to last for many years. Not only that, but you can feel confident about keeping harmful VOC’s out of your home and away from your family and even make a contribution to keeping the air clean and healthy.

Are Toxic VOC’s Lurking in Your House? (Part 1 of a 2-part series)

VOCs.jpg

Perhaps one of your 2017 New Year’s resolutions is to be more environmentally-aware, going beyond recycling household trash to make a difference. Well, here’s another one to add to your ever-growing list of bad chemicals and substances to watch out for: Volatile Organic Compounds (“VOC’s”). As the name suggests, these are organic (carbon-containing) chemicals that have a high vapor pressure at room temperature. In layman’s terms, VOC’s evaporate from the solid substance in which they are contained in the form of gases. They can be found in all sorts of things, including items found in most every household: cosmetic products (i.e. nail polish), cleaning solutions, paint, degreasers, automotive fluids and many others.

manicure-870857__340

A VOC is not, in and of itself, an “ingredient.” That is, you won’t be able to look at the ingredient list of a particular product and assume that because “VOC” isn’t listed that the product doesn’t contain any. Actually, there are many different ingredients that are considered to be VOC’s. One example that is familiar to most people is formaldehyde. However, there are a number of other common ones as well. Unless you happen to have comprehensive knowledge of every kind of VOC, you might have a hard time telling which products have them and which don’t.

Here is one simple way, though, that even young children can detect the presence of a VOC in a product: by using your nose. VOCs almost always have very strong, unpleasant, chemical-like scents. If it makes your eyes water, your throat constrict or your head hurt when you catch a whiff of it, it likely contains one or more VOC’s.

What are the Risks?

cleaning-932936_960_720.jpgVOC’s are not considered to be “acutely toxic.” That is, smelling them or coming into contact with them will probably not cause immediate illness (although some may cause burns when in contact with skin). However, the effects of exposure to VOC’s can be cumulative. This means that they can build up in the human body and, if not expelled, can cause illness down the road, including certain types of cancers.

People who are most at risk of suffering the cumulative effects of VOC’s are those whose work involves daily exposure to them, such as painters (house painters and artists alike), nail techs and hair stylists and even, surprisingly, bakers (VOC’s are by-products of yeast fermentation). Occasional exposure (such as painting your nails at home) poses minimal to negligible risk, as long as proper handling procedures are followed.dough-943245_960_720.jpg

Unfortunately, VOCs are also harmful to the environment. In the atmosphere, VOC’s wreak havoc by forming poisonous particulate matter (i.e. smog) or combining with nitrogen oxide (a greenhouse gas) and forming ozone close to the ground. For this reason, many countries are researching ways to reduce the use of VOCs and restricting industries’ production of them.

Great, now what?

In our next blog, we’ll tell you how to spot VOC’s in common household products and how to get around potentially-harmful exposure. You’ll also find out how Tailored Living is helping reduce their use.
