Want to Be Healthier? Start With Your Home

Tips for a Healthier You and Happier Home

Peaceful organized bedroom.

If you’re looking to be healthier, one way to encourage change is by changing your environment. Start in your home. Here are some top tips from the team at Closet and Storage Concepts.

Pare Down

Take some time to declutter. Having an excess of belongings, especially unnecessary items, can be a both a visual and mental stressor. Pare down in key areas throughout your home to start implementing new habits for a healthier you. Think about it as creating a clean slate.

Start with a pantry purge. If you’re looking to lose weight and become more toned say goodbye to the junk food – stop temptation in the bud. While you’re at it, you can toss out your expired products. You’ll be one step closer to a healthier body and your kitchen pantry will be slimmer too.

Declutter throughout your home such as in the bathroom, in your wardrobe, or even your email! Taking the time to pare down can help relieve stress. With fewer items in your wardrobe it will be easier to make outfit decisions and cutting out the spam email means less time spent deleting them and more time with your kids.

Add Color

Give yourself added motivation each day with a jolt of color. Not only can a bright color impact our moods for the better, it can be a great way to revamp your home. It’s also an easy DIY weekend project. If you’re averse to incorporating color, try small batches of it such as with your office supplies. You can always push for more color later depending on your needs.

Add Plants

Much like adding color can boost our moods, adding a few plants can give some added energy. Plus, it’s a great natural way to help purify the air in your home. If you’re a bit scared that you’ll kill a plant, a cactus or succulent can be a great starter plant. Using hanging planters is a great way to try adding a plant without it taking up too much counter space.

Relaxation Destination

Sleep can be a big factor in reducing stress, lowering high blood pressure, and being more energized. Be sure to foster it in your home. Consider saying goodbye to the smartphone scrolling or browsing before bed and try reading a physical book or relaxing bath instead. Also ditch the caffeine at least 2 hours before bed. Be sure to use comforting linens and comforters to make staying asleep just as easy.

No matter what you’re looking to accomplish in the coming year, changing and improving your home can help you be happier and healthier. To stop the stress from your lack of storage, call your local Closet and Storage Concepts designer today. They’ll help you find a storage solution that works for your life.

Your Yearly Decluttering & Organizing Guide

By csc-admin - January 16th, 2016

Modern workspace with digital calendarAt Closet and Storage Concepts, we’re in the business of helping you create a more organized life. Here’s how you can plan out your year for a more organized home and life.

January

Ease into organizing by starting small. Start with your junk drawer or your nightstand. With your junk drawer, clear out bad pens, broken rubber bands, or even the dried out glue. When tackling your nightstand say goodbye to receipts you don’t need, replace light bulbs with energy efficient ones, and get a holder to store your rings and jewelry. Whatever small area you choose to work on, use this task to work your way up to bigger projects.

February

Use February to focus in on your office. Stay focused by vowing to keep your Internet browsing habits to a minimum and make sure your office fosters productivity. Give the file cabinet a look through and shred items you don’t need. Take some time to gather the needed paperwork for your taxes as you clear out. This way you can get everything in ahead of schedule for an easier April. If you’re feeling up to it, see if there are solutions you can employ to hide the cords whether if it’s with simple cable ties, a DIY project, or something more elaborate and custom-built.

March

Get on the spring cleaning bandwagon early. Do a de-cluttering and clean up in each room of your home. Be sure to schedule multiple days for this so you don’t wear yourself thin. Multiple cleaning sessions ensure that every nook and cranny of your home receives attention, as you won’t be rushing.

April

If you feel like it’s been a constant state of de-cluttering, planning, and cleaning, it’s time to take a break – you’ve earned it. Just be sure as the month continues that everything is getting tucked away into their proper places so it’s easy to continue organizing and decluttering in May.

May

New movie blockbusters are on the way! Get your DVD and music collection organized. Donate old DVDs and records to make room for new favorites. Alternatively, ditch the discs all together and go digital. Slim down your entertainment center and use the space for family albums or books.
WalkIn Closet Narrow

June

We’re halfway through the year! As things warm up, take this month to pay attention to your closet. Do a swap out by storing winter clothes in the spare closet or under your bed and bringing in the summer clothes. If you know you haven’t worn an item from two winters past, it’s time for it to be donated. If you’re frustrated by the lack of space in your closet, it may be time to bring in an expert. A custom unit may be your best solution to maximize your space and make getting organized easier in the rest of the year.

July

With the school year over (for most kids), focus on your car. Vacuum up the crumbs that have accumulated and make sure your car is ready for your next beach or road trip. Outfit your car with dividers in your console and be sure to keep a few reusable bags in there for grocery runs.

August

It’s time to prepare for back to school season, and that includes your home! Really hone in on the kid areas such as your child’s bedroom or playroom. Make sure their bedroom sets them up for success. Whether it’s cleaning out the closet for a new uniform (my, they’ve grown!) or upgrading with a new workstation, leave nothing to chance.

September

With the new school year underway, dive into your schedule. Make sure both your digital and paper calendars are all squared away. Already know about birthday parties and bake sales you’ll be attending? Jot them down. After you’ve nailed a schedule and gotten your family back into the swing of things, be sure to take some time for yourself. The holiday season will be here before you know it!

October

GarageIt wouldn’t be surprising to see Christmas decorations already hitting stores, but resist the urge to get buy every item. Rather, focus your energy on the garage. Put away the beach toys until next summer and get your tools in order. Stock up on storage bins for the holiday decorations if yours are looking a little worse for wear. It’s the perfect time before the cold weather hits.

November

As things cool down, do another closet swap out. Head to your local thrift or charity shop to donate your items – it’s a great time to give back to the community. Focus on your spare room to make room for guests this holiday season, or transform your guest room into gift-wrapping central in preparation for the holidays.

December

At the start of December, consider getting your pantry in order. This way you can prepare for the baking and cooking session that often accompanies the holidays. Toss out expired spices and indulge in a little pantry organization session to get it back in working order. An organized pantry will make your holiday baking session that much easier.

We’re looking to a great year at Closet and Storage Concepts and we hope these tips can help you stay organized in 2016. Be sure to check back in for more monthly tips. When you’re ready to upgrade the storage in your home be sure to call in your local experts. From garage storage units to home offices to custom closets to murphy beds – we do it all. We look forward to working with you!

Hello 2016: Resolving to Get Organized

By csc-admin - December 30th, 2015

Goodbye 2015 Hello 2016 Print

2016 is almost officially here. If you’re looking to get organized in the New Year, Closet and Storage Concepts is here to help you with these tips when making resolutions and more importantly, sticking to them.

Set SMART Goals

Setting the right goals is the first step to a more organized home and life. Use the SMART acronym to help you.

Specific: Make sure your goal is specific. A goal that is too broad such as “getting everything in my home organized” can set you up for failure. Instead, try “organize my desk drawers” – use specific, smaller goals to build up to your entire home.

Measurable: Your goal should be measurable – you want to know if you meet your goal. If you want to make sure you stick to a cleaning schedule, put a time slot on your calendar. If you check it off on those days, you know that you’re making progress to make staying organized a habit.

Assignable: Who will be completing the task? If you want to share the load of getting your home organized make sure all parties know what their task is.

Realistic: Setting goals that are challenging, but not too hard, is key. Consistently meeting realistic goals will help you maintain your sanity as well as encourage you to stay organized. For a daily organization goal, start small by removing empty pens and markers from your craft storage or cleaning your couch from crumbs and change.

Timely: Make sure your goal has a time limit. Saying you have all year to organize your bathroom can encourage procrastination. While it may take time to make a habit out of organizing, don’t give yourself eternity.

Treat Yourself

After you’ve set your resolutions, don’ forget to reward yourself. Try going on a spa day after a major closet overhaul or shed clean out. Even having a small piece of chocolate can help brighten your day after a pantry organization session. Whatever you find joy in, take a breather and treat yourself for a job well done. Celebrating your successes is important to create positive re-enforcement for what you accomplish.

Accountability

Our last tip is to stay accountable. Having someone to encourage you as well as help you steer through your goal is one way to keep you accountable. Tell your spouse or a friend about your goals and make sure you check-in with them. Even if you fall off for a bit, know that they can help you get back on track. A planner can be a great way to keep yourself accountable. It can also help you track your goals. As you analyze if you’re getting organized, staying accountable is another way to track progress.

Tasks to Do Today For A Stress Free Holiday Season

By csc-admin - December 17th, 2015

christmas-ornament

With the holidays almost here (did it sneak up on you, too?), here are some tasks we encourage you to complete today for a stress-free day of festivities. And don’t forget to call your local Closet and Storage Concepts when you’re ready to make your home more storage efficient.

  1. Get the Gift Wrap In Order

Take inventory of your wrapping supplies. If you’re running low on ribbons, gift tags, or simply want a new wrapping paper design, make a note of what colors you need, and how much you need. For wrapping paper, if you’re replenishing your stash, be sure you have extra for those gifts that you may have forgotten. Getting the gift wrapping supplies today makes it one less thing to purchase a day before Christmas.

Clear out or set aside space in your spare bedroom or office for a gift wrapping station. Having a pre-designated area will make wrapping everything a breeze. Plus you can be sure that you have all the room you need ahead of time.

  1. Clean The House

Cleaning generally falls down the list of priorities during the holidays, but cleaning up now can make things easier for you, especially if you’re hosting a gathering. Even if you’re not hosting this year, getting the cleaning done before you go on vacation or before the major swing of holiday parties can help you feel more relaxed when things die down. You’ll definitely be ready to ring in the New Year with a clean home!

Even taking only 15 minutes here or there everyday can help to reduce the stress rather than completing one major cleanup while you’re multitasking on the day of your gathering.

  1. Get Enough Rest

Before you have to pull an all-nighter for last minute presents or baking the cookies for Santa’s trip down the chimney, be sure to get in your sleep. A proper night’s rest can keep you and your body feeling it’s best. You’ll say goodbye to any wintertime blue’s in time for the festivities.

  1. Make Your List and Check it Twice

If it’s time to do one last push for gifts or to stock up on snacks and ingredients for that roast, make like Santa and check it twice. Check in the pantry, fridge, and freezer to make sure you don’t have the items on your list already and cross-reference ingredients to your recipes. If you’re worried about gifts, get some gender-neutral gifts or general gifts on the off chance that you did in fact miss a gift. Flowers for hosts, or a good bottle of wine with a certificate to a restaurant can be a good option.

Create a stress-free holiday by staying organized with proper planning. Then get your home storage nightmares resolved by giving Closet and Storage Concepts a call today for your free in-home consultation!

Halloween Clean Up: Candy

By csc-admin - November 30th, 2015

candy-450347_640

Do you still have left over candy from Halloween? Or maybe even from last year? Or maybe you simply want to make sure your child doesn’t eat all of it in one sitting? At Closet and Storage Concepts we’re here to help with tips on when to throw it out, reuse it, or give it away.

  1. Expiration dates

Expiration dates are always a good place to start to determine if it’s time to say goodbye to packaged candy, but sometimes even those can be misleading. Many experts say that food, including candy, is still good past the sell date. With chocolate for examples, chocolate chips that are frozen can last two to three years, while plain milk chocolate is only usually good for 12 to 18 months. With gummy candies, the true expiration date is usually only for about 12 months although Skittles are known to have a shelf life of two to three years. In most cases, it will be safe to re-purpose candy for your holiday stocking stuffers, just be aware that your other senses like smell and sight can help to determine if it’s time to say goodbye to the candy.

  1. Freeze it

Freezing your candy can help extend it’s life. Chocolate in particular can benefit by increasing the sell by date an additional 12 months. Even the different temperatures between a fridge and a freezer can impact (and increase) the amount of time you can keep candy around. If you do want to save your candy, freezing it may be the best option. Keep in mind that certain candies will lose some of their taste and consistency if you freeze them.

  1. Bake it

Chocolate chips, M&Ms, and other candy products might be able to be used in another dish if you don’t want to eat them plain. Baking them into other goods can be a good gift, or you can save them for your ginger bread houses. Simply look for a recipe online and voila! You’ll have new baked goods to share so you don’t waste anything and your kids don’t eat everything in one sitting.

  1. Just say goodbye

If you’re on a health kick, it may be best to just say goodbye to the candy. If so, don’t feel guilty. You’re stopping any cravings and temptation while clearing out the clutter in your home. If you don’t want to completely toss it, try reaching out to a local organization to see if you can donate the candy. Local children hospitals or non-profits that work with the armed forces frequently accept donations.

No matter what you choose to do with your leftover candy Closet and Storage Concepts is here to help you make more room for a well-organized life. For more food storage tips for your pantry or other tips for throughout your home, check out our other blog posts or visit our showroom!

Craft Room Organization Tips

By csc-admin - November 17th, 2015

Utility-12 J

It’s time to get the craft room organized before you need the wrapping paper for all of those gifts. The team at Closet and Storage Concepts is here to help you find the best solutions for your crafts no matter if you have a dedicated room or a simple closet area.

Baskets

Keeping all of your supplies and baubles in one spot is a go-to solution for organizers and designers. Baskets can keep like items grouped together all while keeping them concealed when guests are over. They also make moving items a breeze. Simply store your items in the basket and move them between shelves, or even different rooms if you need to. Choose from a variety of options including the standard wicker basket, modern metal crates, and anything in between.

See Me If You Can

You should be able to see through your baskets, bins, or other units. This makes finding your crafts easy and efficient. If you want to conceal things a bit more, try a frosted glass insert on your cabinets or drawers. A sheer window panel can help save space if you have a crafts closet while giving you the option to keep things hidden once company comes through. While baskets can be used to completely conceal your items, having a set of transparent drawer units, especially for items you frequently use may be more efficient.

Pegboard, Always

When organizing your craft room, or even your garage, pegboards almost always should be used. They help to free up valuable working areas by keeping your tools and materials off of the table. Using your walls, by installing a pegboard insures that you’re maximizing your space. Pegboards are very handy in a craft room as hooks and baskets can be moved around very easily, so they can flex to whatever project you’re working on. Plus they can be decorated and painted to fit your room’s décor so it’s not an eyesore.

Group Like Items

Baskets and containers are great for housing items. To make the best use of them, take some time to group items together. Keeping all of your buttons, thread, scissors, or wrapping paper grouped together can help when creating storage space. Once you’ve made piles, putting them away in designated containers will be a breeze. Taking time to organize all of your craft supplies can be a lot of work, but the outcome is worth it!

Still need help implementing these tips in your craft room? Bring in the experts at Closet and Storage Concepts. Our designers will work with you to find a solution, giving you room for more craft projects, and more importantly a space to wrap all of those presents!

Closet Details: Lighting

By csc-admin - October 30th, 2015

light-681540_640

The details matter, especially when making home improvement upgrades. From picking a paint color to creating a certain ambience in a room, lighting can effect a large number of decisions. Be sure to pay close attention to lighting in your closet system. Here are some things to consider from the team at Closet and Storage Concepts.

Types of Lighting

Let’s start by going over the three key types of lighting that can come into play in your closet.

Accent

Exactly as it sounds, accent lighting is used to highlight certain pieces. It’s a great way to create a bit of drama in a space. Accent lighting works particularly well for large walk-in closets. Use it to highlight art if you’ve decided to hang any, or for any holy-grail items such as a purse or a pair of shoes. This works well for boutique-styled layouts.

Task

This type of lighting helps you get things done. Whether it’s applying your makeup or choosing an accessory, task lighting can be critical to helping you make decisions as you get ready each morning. Task lighting is most often used in a walk-in closet system, but can also work extremely well with a reach-in system.

Ambient

Think of ambient lighting as the umbrella for the other types of lighting in your space. It provides general illumination and can even overlap as task lighting. Ambient lighting is important for all kinds of closet designs.

Bulbs

Interested in creating a certain atmosphere? Try switching out your bulbs. Here’s what you need to consider. Light bulbs can offer warm or cool tones. Some even provide heat radiance.

Incandescent

This is the most common type of light bulb, and is most associated with electricity. It is also the least energy efficient as most of the energy produces heat rather than light. In fact, many home improvement stores are reducing the amount of incandescent lights they carry. They can be used in fixtures that create all three types of lighting.

CFL

Compact Fluorescent Lights are most easily identified as lights with a curly tube inside the bulb. These are more energy efficient although the one major complaint is that they tend to take a longer time to shine or warm up. They use to be quite common in fluorescent under-the-cabinet lights.

LED

These bulbs have been increasingly popular as they are extremely energy efficient and the price to purchase them decreases. They have been popular for accent and task lighting although they can be used for all three types of lighting. Choose this type of bulb in your closet so you can reduce the amount of time you have to replace your lights – some have been known to have a lifespan of 20 years!

Fixtures and Styles

Recessed

These are by some of the most common types of light fixtures, especially in newer homes. These lights can create all types of light and ambience in your home but are particularly good for general lighting and accent lighting.

Track Lights

With this fixture, the lights are aligned on a track, although you don’t have to settle for the plain white linear track anymore. There is a wide selection of styles and many use LED bulbs. These are great to help create accent or overall ambience to your space.

Under-the-cabinet

These are particularly useful for task lighting. They can help you select a piece of jewelry or compare certain accessories. They go perfect with a set of drawers that house your jewelry, cuff links, or other small items.

Chandeliers and Pendants

Give your closet an added design touch with a miniature chandelier or strategically placed pendants. They can give added drama while providing essential lighting.

Be sure to plan your closet design with the details in mind. Consult with one of our expert designers at Closet and Storage Concepts today to start creating and organizing your home today!

Halloween Planning: Guests (and Ghosts)

By csc-admin - October 27th, 2015

halloween-271369_640

The holidays are coming whether you like it or not and that means that guests will soon be at your front door! With Halloween in sight, you may also be seeing more guests (and maybe even a few ghosts)! No matter if you’re preparing guests or ghosts this season, your local Closet and Storage Concepts team is ready to help you prepare for any that might be coming your way.

Impressions First: The Doorstep

Create a ghoulish display from the very first step. There are so many options to choose from especially when considering the direction you want to go in. From the haunting to the sparkly, there’s no shortage of design options. For a subtle look try spray-painting your pumpkins with chalkboard paint to write a scary message. Or you can go all out with “cobwebs”, lights, and other décor. With enough luck you might even come across a ghost or two on Halloween.

Beds & Bedding

No more squeaky and scary sounding mattresses – upgrade! Don’t forget to tend to any murphy or wall beds. If you’re in need of a wall bed update be sure to call us today! We may even be able to offer you with some solutions for the springs or other mechanisms.

Bedding is a great easy way to incorporate the holidays from Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. You can change the color scheme to match the holiday, incorporate thematic pillows, or choose any combination of other options to create a space as festive as you’d like.

Sensory Details

Greet guests and create a Halloween atmosphere by using sound devices triggered by motion. For a fun gift, try a small sound machine that releases horror screams, creaky doors and floors, or fantastical beasts at the touch of a button. 

Use fluffy spider webs on mirrors to give a spooky vibe, and welcome guests with fluffy towels. Towels and bedding can be a great point of comfort for traveling and weary guests.

Bring on the scents! Try making your own and storing them in a fun cauldron shaped container. You’ll be sure to find seasonal options in almost any home or furniture store. Candles and diffusers can help give your guests a sense of a retreat or being a home away from home.

No matter if you’re planning on welcoming ghosts or guests, you’ll be ready with these tips. Use them in your home today to get a head start on the holidays! Need more tips on how to create room for guests or maybe cleaning out a spare room? Call in the organizational experts at Closet and Storage Concepts today! We may even give you more scary good storage tips!

The Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn Purge

By csc-admin - September 30th, 2015

pennsylvania-82691_1280

Autumn can feel like the start of a new year as it coincides with schools heading back in session. Use the momentum of heading back to school to purge throughout your home. Here are some top picks from the team at Closet and Storage Concepts as you welcome in fall.

  • Makeup and Medicine

Start in the bathroom and clear out old makeup and medicine. A new season often brings new looks, so clear out the old to prepare for the new. Work with your local pharmacist or health specialist to properly dispose of expired medicines. Pro Tip: If you have a lot of lipsticks, try decanting them into travel storage pots. Simply use a small scoop to get all of the color into the storage containers. This allows you to convert your lipsticks into a uniform container (freeing up space), while using up the entire lipstick.

  • Food Containers

Assess your food storage containers and dispose of any limp or yellowed ones. Try Pyrex containers for any older kids or your significant other to save money in the long run. Glass containers tend to be easier to clean and look great in your cabinets.

  • Spices and Food

New seasons often bring seasonal delicacies. Be sure to purge through any expired spices or foods in your kitchen pantry to make room for new treats. Utilize proper storage organizers or try custom built-ins to maximize your space with clever organizers.

  • Plastic Bags

Store a stash of them neatly in a container to take when you walk the dog and recycle extras. Many stores take back used plastic bags, which are then reused and repurposed. If you have a lot of them, try weaving them together to make a super sturdy grocery tote.

  • Air Conditioning and HVAC Filters

While it’s not necessarily an item to purge, it’s a great time to think about changing your air filters. Changing your air filter can help to reduce allergens in your home and keep your home cleaner. A clean home can make a home feel larger and more organized.

  • Clothes and Shoes

Sorry shoe divas, your items don’t get to escape either. New fall fashions likely mean that your closet will see an influx of new items. Purge now before you shop for new items. If you use the post-it trick (where you stick a note on any item that you’re unsure of purging), and haven’t worn the item since two summers ago it’s time to say goodbye. If you haven’t worn the item it’s likely that you don’t need the item. Clear out your closet to create more space for things you will use.

  • Kid’s Stuff Too

Kid’s stuff shouldn’t be excluded either. Give away or donate clothes that no longer fit your kids. Be sure to include them in the process so they can learn how to declutter too. If you’re swimming in toys it may be a good time to purge them. Say goodbye to broken beach pails and try on sports gear to see if they need to be replaced after the summer growth spurts.

  • Gift Stations

The holiday season will be here soon enough. Get ready by clearing out the wedding wrapping paper and any old scraps that can’t be salvaged in favor of new holiday paper.

Autumn is great for cider donuts, pumpkin spice lattes, and of course a shift in weather. Be sure to embrace and prepare for the autumn by purging through items. Call your local Closet and Storage Concepts designer for help to get your closet and other organization systems into gear.

How to Create Maintainable Storage Systems

By csc-admin - September 18th, 2015

Utility-1

At Closet and Storage Concepts we love helping our customers create storage systems and units that work for them that will serve them well over time. This can be tougher than you think, but our designers carefully assess and try to plan for future purchases and behavior. Combined with systems that are created in our own factories, we can provide a storage solution for even the toughest of areas. Here’s how you can create a storage unit that works for you long-term whether you’re looking to create a new closet, kitchen pantry, laundry room storage, or home office system.

Invest the Time

First, you should give yourself ample amount of time. Creating a storage system when you’re rushed probably won’t help your organization problems in the long run. You will want to put in the appropriate amount of time to deliver a good payoff. The time doesn’t have to be put in one group either. Feel free to split up the time and invest in chunks – we know that life can be busy and get in the way.

Purge Before you Plan

Before you start ripping out your old system, or planning a new elaborate storage system, do yourself a favor and purge. Remove items that are expired, damaged, no longer appeal to you, and so on. You want to create an organizer that helps you keep things you love in order, not your junk too. Marie Kondo’s way of discarding items can be helpful in this situation.

Plan and Hire Pros

Once you’ve purged you can start to assess and plan what you need to store. Be sure to hire the professionals, like the team at Closet and Storage Concepts, if you need to. Our designers will carefully measure your space, and listen to your needs and requirements to translate your dream into a viable solution that maximizes your space. Customizing your storage system is a dependable way to make sure that your storage system will be used for years to come.

Follow-Through

Be sure to follow through once you’ve determined an organization system that works for you. Whether it’s completing your new storage units, or getting all the labels onto your shoeboxes, don’t leave your project incomplete. Leaving your project incomplete will decrease the odds that you will use your storage system and thus increase the chances of you accumulating clutter once again.

Complete the Cycle

With your new storage and organization system in place you’ll want to get in the habit of completing the cycle. For example, each time you do laundry, be sure to put your clothes away completely, or make sure that you put food items into the right container or on the right shelf. This takes time to build as a habit, especially if you’re not used to it, but with the proper planning and follow-through you’ll have better odds of maintaining your home storage system.

Long-term storage systems are manageable with the right people to help you, as well as the desire to maintain your home. Be sure to give your local team at Closet and Storage Concepts a call today to schedule a complimentary consultation when you’re ready to create an organized home!
