Kitchen Overhaul

Organizing pro Tracey Hall does a complete makeover on one family's kitchen.


The Tlusty family needs help with their kitchen, which has turned into a cluttered mess of toys, papers and unused kitchen items. Clutter piled high on counters and tables made the kitchen inhospitable. They are ready to remodel the entire 10 x 25-foot space.


Professional organizer Tracey Hall signed on to help give this Chicago family a kitchen that will be the envy of all the city. Now, the counters are clear, and the kitchen is a favorite room in the house.


Just outside the kitchen, the dining-room table has served as a catchall for clutter rather than a family gathering spot or entertainment area.


Now, new cabinets take advantage of the entire wall, so everything on the table can be tucked away and the family can finally have a place to eat.
