After: Sorted and Functional
Professional organizer Debbie Lillard has some ideas for turning the space into an attractive and functional room that meets the needs of all the family members: First she has the Ruffenachs sort through toys and clothes, making piles to trash, give away or store elsewhere. Next, a fresh coat of paint and new flooring provide the backdrop for a new system of cupboards and cabinets.
All the possessions were sorted before ordering enough cabinets to ensure the proper amount of storage. The goal was to have everything fit behind closed doors.
The cabinets over the washing machine tidy up the area, while the children's artwork makes it a pleasant and lively space.
Everything is organized and out of sight in the new cabinet system. A new system of wall cabinets stores clothes, tools and pantry items.
The modular rubber floor is added in place of simple coat of paint, which makes the space feel clean and — now that it can be found! — provides the perfect spot for indoor hockey games.
