The Key Factors To Consider When Arranging And Organizing Your New Home
When you contact an interior designer to arrange and organize your home, among the first things you discuss is you and your vision. The reason for this is, a home should be a reflection of the people living there especially the owners. Whether you are hiring a designer or doing the organizing yourself, here are some of the things you must consider first.
Space greatly determines how the house will be organized. A huge house will not be organized the same way as a house that has limited floor space, fewer closets and cabinets. While you can afford to float furniture and arrange your wardrobe in a luxurious way in a bigger house, you probably can’t do that in a small house because you are restricted by space. Small spaces need you to be creative and to really improvise so that things can fit.
How much money have you apportioned to the organizing and designing aspect of the house? Most people go broke after paying the movers and hence have no more money to buy extra furniture and wall paintings. There are also some items that are required to make the house look organized such as shoe racks, spice racks, hangers and even racks for dishes or utensils. Your pocket will determine how many things you can add in the space and if you can afford to hire a professional designer.
What is the average age of people who are living in that house apart from the owners? If you have small kids, you can’t organize your home with sharp and dangerous pieces lying around in places they can reach. However, if the kids are big and can’t cause harm to themselves, you don’t have to hang the TV, cover the couch and place all furniture against the wall.

What makes sense?
Leave alone what design magazines and your interior designer says is right, the best organization is one where the owner feels comfortable with. What works for you as the owner of the house? Is there a specific place where you like to sit when watching the TV? Then your seat should be placed there. This rule applies to all rooms including the kitchen as the organization must be functional and not just logical.
What is the theme of the house? What colors are there in every room? Your existing home décor should play a part in the organization. If the theme is cool, masculine and blue, your arrangement should try to capture that mood by being minimal so that everything works harmoniously. A house whose theme is upbeat and out there, should also be reflected in the organization. If you are planning to change the overall feel and décor of the house, plan your arrangement to capture what you have in mind as long as you are doing it soon.
Organizing is not a gift that everybody was born with and that is why so many houses don’t tell much about the owner. If you are struggling with arranging and organizing, you can always call a professional designer to help you capture your dream and vision, and bring them to life.
