When you’re moving into a new home that has a completely different layout than your previous home, it can be challenging to create a plan for how you will use one space. Where will your items fit. How should they be organized? What will I need to create function of my belongings? These are important questions to answer before you move into a new home or plan a renovation in a current home.
Space and storage planning is an important step to make sure your transition into a new space is organized and functional. At Calm Order, our team of professionals conducts onsite measurements and creates an organizing plan. This way, we can come up with a design for your space and items and to make sure your space is set-up and organized right from the start.
Calm Order recently worked with a client that moved into a home that has an elevator shaft all set for aging in place. The elevator shaft was just an empty space. We came up with the idea to use the room as a make up room for her teenage daughter! Lets just say BIG hit! It’s one of her daughters favourite spaces!
The space was a perfect fit for a vanity set the client had purchased for their daughter. The Calm Order team set to work to transform the former elevator shaft into an fun makeup room that was organized and designed with creativity and vision in mind.
To make this makeup room a reality, the team didn’t need to purchase much to make this space functional and fashionable. The vanity, chair, and mirror take up most of the space, but Calm Order added in some floating shelving on either side of the mirror for extra storage and display space. Clear makeup organizers were purchased for lip stick, brushes, powders, and other supplies, and placed on some of the lower shelves and the top of the vanity so they were in easy reach. The top shelves were decorated with pictures and decor pieces. A few printables were printed and placed in frames for the walls. We used drawer organizers for hair accessories and other makeup items organized and uncluttered.
If you have a space in your new home or current home that you aren’t sure what to do with or think is under-utilized, contact Calm Order to find out how you could transform the function and design of your space. Our organizational design specialist can work with you to create the best storage solutions for all your belongings.
