I explained how to sort through all your belongings — the first step in organizing a room — in my last post. Today, it’s all about putting things back and creating storage that works. Here are some tips:
- Consider how you want the room to function and create zones for those functions. All the supplies necessary for those functions goes in those zones. For example, you may want your living room to be a place where you can watch TV, play video games and read books and magazines. Your TV zone might be the couch, chairs and coffee table where you store the remote controls. Your video game zone might be the same area with the addition of a bookshelf to store all the games and equipment. The book and magazine zone might consist of the bookshelves plus a cozy chair next to a lamp.
