Sometimes just one small thing can be the catalyst for great change. For instance, if wrapping holiday gifts brought you to the point of making a New Year’s Resolution to get organized, that’s perfectly understandable. Consider the job of wrapping presents:
- To the desk for tape
- To the kid’s room to hunt for the scissors
- To the top shelf in the closet for boxes and wrapping paper
- To underbed storage for ribbons and gift tags
You finally ended up with a stack of gorgeously wrapped presents and, also, with the dream of a gift-wrapping center. Score one for inspiration!

Four steps to getting organized and keeping your New Year’s Resolutions
- Step One: Determine what rooms/spaces aren’t working
Maybe it’s your entire house that frustrates you, or just specific areas like the garage, messy closets or the kitchen pantry. Write down what you would like to see in each space, such as more storage, easier access to contents, enclosed cabinets to hide clutter or more open space. Don’t be afraid to dream; if you can envision it, we can most likely build it!
- Step Two: Call Tailored Living for a free, in-home consultation
Your local Tailored Living designer will come to your home and work with you right where you need help. You’ll discuss your specific needs and they can show you solutions you many never have considered. Our exclusive 3D design software program will let you see room designs in real time and color to ease the decision-making process. You’ll be able to examine finish and color samples to find exactly what will work best with your home’s décor. Accurate measurements will be taken to ensure that everything will fit and install perfectly. Once you’ve finalized your designs, you’ll receive a written estimate so there are no surprises regarding style, cost, colors, hardware selection, and a confirmed installation date will be set.
- Step Three: Prepare for installation day
You’ll need to clear out those areas where installations will take place. This is an ideal time for sorting and purging, discarding those things you don’t want to keep and store. Especially with closets and garages, downsizing contents before the new system goes in is a win/win. You also may want to paint a room, closet or pantry a new, fresh color before units are installed. That way, as soon as the installations are complete, your space is ready for immediate use.
- Step Four: Let the installers work; then move back into your new, organized space
On installation day, our installers will be on time with everything they need for the install. Most installations take one day or less, unless it’s especially complex or a very large project. Your home will be respected to prevent damage of any kind and the spaces will be left clean and free of debris, so you can move right in! You’ll have the opportunity to do an inspection of the completed units with the installer to be sure you are completely satisfied.
