If you’ve ever shuddered at the thought a houseguest trying to grab a towel from your linen closet, or if some personal care product has ever stuck to a linen closet shelf (or worse yet, toppled over and leaked onto everything below), then take heart. There really are proper ways to fold linens and prevent personal care product mishaps. Your linen closet may never look like “Martha” did it, but it can become a secret source of pride.
Imagine being able to ask your houseguests to grab a set of towels (or whatever) from the linen closet.
Organized! by Romanic® serves one client every autumn just to re-fold linens before the holidays. She loves it when her out-of-town guests “ooh and ahhh” over her tidy linen closet. If they only knew!
Original shelving had collapsed
One client called Organized! by Romanic® because when she moved into her new condo, the outdated shelving installed by the previous homeowner collapsed.
New adjustable closet shelving
Organized! by Romanic® only uses completely adjustable closet shelving so that as the client’s needs change over time, the client can easily raise, lower, remove, or add shelves and clothes hanging rods. Once the new adjustable shelves were up, all of the client’s clothes and other items fit easily into the closet. Sometimes clients don’t have too much stuff; sometimes they just need a better storage system for their stuff.
This client was a recently retired teacher who was thinking about renting out some unused rooms for extra income.
Transforming extra things into nice guest room
Organized! by Romanic® re-arranged the shelving units the client already had in the two bedrooms and then brought in an unused chair from another part of the house. The client also had an unused sleep sofa that Organized! by Romanic® had moved upstairs to the second bedroom. All a renter would need to add was a microwave and a small fridge. Otherwise, the two rooms would be a comfortable space for the client’s adult children to stay when they came home to visit.
A comfortable space
This client had everything she needed to provide a very comfortable space for either a house guest or a renter. Many times Organized! by Romanic® finds the answer to a client’s clutter problem in another room of the client’s home.
Disorganized men vs. women
Over the years, Organized! by Romanic® has noticed that in the master bedrooms of single women of all ages — there is almost always clothing piled on the bed, on a chair, or hanging from every door. Single men, however, tend to have clothing draped over un-used exercise equipment, piled on the dresser, or swimming around them in a sea on the floor.
The photos on this page are from the home of a single woman. Fortunately for most singles, dealing with piles of clothing in the master bedroom is one of the fastest, easiest jobs that Organized! by Romanic® is asked to do.
