Common Mistakes To Watch Out For When Arranging And Organizing Your New House

Organizing your new home after a move is one of the main ways to make the new house feel like home. You get to put everything in its place and finally stop living off boxes and looking for something for a whole hour. Unfortunately, in the rush to complete organizing the home so you can relax, you are bound to make some mistakes. Here are some of those mistakes to watch out for when organizing.

Piling up stuff

The most common mistake people make when organizing is piling up items together. Just because you neatly line up all the small kitchen appliances on the counter doesn’t mean you are organized. No matter how well you arrange the items, if you put too many of them together, they will look very odd. Some people make the same mistake with drawers and glass cabinets where they just throw in a lot of cups and plates and close the door. If you don’t have enough space to put all your dishes and other items, at least you can arrange them in a systematic manner so they don’t look piled up.

Covering the fridge door with sticky notes

The importance of putting reminders and notices for the family to see cannot be overlooked because it’s a great way to stay organized. However, the refrigerator door is not the place to stick all those notes and letters. Research shows that people don’t actually read them as their focus is inside the fridge and not on the door. Instead, put a notice board somewhere strategic or a clipboard where you can be writing and sticking all those messages.

Common Mistakes To Organizing Your New House

Choosing form over functionality

This is one of the points where organizers and decorators differ in opinion. When organizing something like the closet or entryway, you should focus more on functionality and not how things look. Whatever you choose to place at the entryway should be something that people can use to throw keys and letters when they enter the house. You should also put the items you use often at the front even if they are not that aesthetically pleasing.

Creating more space

You should not be looking to create more space in the house. You should be reducing the quantity of items you have so they can fit in the space available. Instead of getting extra boxes and bins to store so many things you don’t use in the garage, try getting rid of them instead. Throwing items into boxes and trash bins is not the definition of ‘being organized.’

Scattered collection

Most people think that you should put one vase on the table, the other one near the window and another one on the other far side. According to interior decorators, similar pieces should be displayed together especially if they are in threes, instead of scattering them all over the room.

The thing with organizing is that you can’t really trust yourself. Sometimes you may think you have done a great job arranging the furniture and displaying wall art when all you’ve done is a shoddy job. Always ask for a second opinion from someone whose taste you admire or hire a professional designer to organize the home for you.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
