If you’ve ever worked with an obsessive organizer, you’ll know that torn feeling that comes with watching them do their thing. On the one hand, you can’t help but admire their attention to detail and how they stay on top of things. But, it can get old when they spend hours fixing something because of a minute detail that they were the only ones to notice.
No matter how you feel about such habits, it’s hard to deny the efficiency some of their changes provide. It wouldn’t really hurt to adopt one or two of the things they do if it means things can move smoothly at home or the office. One of the most useful of such methods is giving cabinets respective jobs.
Cabinets are storage systems meant to help people keep all their things in one place. But, other than assigning cabinets certain functions because of convention (i.e. medicine cabinets), it’s a virtual free for all what people can find in cabinets. We’re talking about determining what each individual cabinet will store, and put only those items in that cabinet.
Sounds easy enough, right? It’s fair to think that, if you’ve already considered your room layout, cabinet placement efficiency, and aesthetic impact. If you haven’t, then you’ve got a lot of things to think about.
Fortunately, online retailers like Cabinet Co offer people cabinet sets that make things a lot easier, at least in the layout and aesthetics department. The only aspect that needs any more thought is deciding where items can stay where they’ll be most useful.
Spices for example, don’t need much space, but need to be within range of the cooking stove. So, they get a small cabinet (or just half of one) within arm’s reach of the stove. These small details make kitchen life easier and it’s applicable anywhere in the house. Be a little obsessive and improve your home life in a big way.
