Design Hope for the Hopelessly Disorganized Mom


<< More From Moss Building & Design




Dear Moss Building & Design,

I don’t have a ton of space and keep getting bogged down in stuff. Any design help for this hopelessly disorganized mom?


Dear Dulles Mom,

No matter how big your home, there never seems to be enough storage space. We get it.

When it comes to bedrooms, rethink what belongs in your closet and master. You might not want to toss everything that doesn’t “spark joy,” but you can store some less used or seasonal things out of sight for a while. Store off-season clothing in clearly marked, breathable containers sized to slide under your bed. Consider darker bins or decorative baskets to hide clutter on bookshelves or dressers.

If you need more structural solutions, that’s where someone like the expert remodelers and designers at Moss Building & Design could help. Redesigning a room with built-in shelves, recessed wardrobe areas, or new closet spaces could be just your ticket to organization sanity.

You might also consider multipurpose areas like laundry-mudroom combinations or office nooks in a kitchen or living room. Tucked away pantries that are as big as walk-in closets also help remove kitchen clutter out of sight and out of mind. Those solutions can help immensely if you have space or are interested in investing in an addition or bump-out.

To help with your organizational needs, MOSS is excited to share a new Home Organization promotion. Moss Building & Design has teamed up with one of their customers and professional home organizer, Amy of Simply Enough, to offer you four FREE hours of home organization help.
