In these before/after shots you’ll see that my focus is on improving function and access for my clients, so that they can find more peace at home and engage in activities they want to.
Making the best use of a deep pantry closet
This pantry closet was extra wide and deep, which made the small size of pantry food items get easily disorganized. Pots and food storage containers were in kitchen drawers too small for those items, so we swapped them. We moved pantry items to smaller cabinets and drawers in the kitchen, and used this big closet for larger items.
Organizing a bathroom closet
This bathroom had an extra large closet in the back with a wide variety of household items that got easily disorganized, and challenges with access made family members disincentivized to put stuff away. We grouped categories by type and size, put smaller items in bins, matched the spaces available with right-sized items, and labeled everything.
Defining a purpose for a kitchen nook
In this house there’s a space next to the kitchen which ended up being storage and clutter because it didn’t have a purpose. We optimized the room layout to make a comfy chair and shelving available, defined groups of items to go onto shelves and cabinets, and labeled everything.
Organizing a spare room for clothes and shoes
This spare room functions as a walk-in closet for a wide variety of clothing and shoes, and the volume made the current setup ineffective. We rotated the clothing racks 90 degrees to make the best use of space and fit in an additional rack. We set up bins for linens, and purchased two large shoe racks for expanded storage.
Using kitchen drawer for baking items
In this kitchen we moved items around to match storage spaces with the size and frequency of access. A drawer that had been used for food storage containers, and was too small for them, was converted to a drawer for baking items.

Food Storage Containers
I recommend grouping and stacking containers by size (small, medium, large), with their lids. Matching lids one-to-one can be too space-consuming, and putting all lids together can be messy and confusing.
