Before: Disjointed Living Room
Mark Burstein has plenty of stuff, but not enough storage or style in his rented apartment’s living room.
His furniture is all hand-me-downs that don't match. His job as a DJ generates a lot of electronic equipment, disks and costumes that land everywhere.
His penchant for collectibles adds to the mess, while his utter lack of organization and large elliptical trainer make it hard to walk around the clutter in the 19' x 12' room and walk-in closet.
The closet is bursting with costumes, empty boxes and DJ equipment.
Even the entertainment center is a mess — it's covered with exposed wires and a disorganized array of CDs and DVDs.
Professional organizer Gianfranco DiLuzio has a plan that will transform Burstein's disjointed living room into a clean, organized contemporary space with areas for work and entertaining.
