A typical, low budget solution is to reuse original containers or use no cost items like ice cream containers.
We focussed on sorting and throwing away of broken items or unusable paper and paint. Getting everything off the floor is always a good idea as well as colour coding so kids can find their way around.
A typical situation of a home office that had to double-up as a guest room, plus the entire overflow from the wardrobe.
We focussed on the home office, decluttered books, stationery, note pads and CDs. We categorised everything and found a place to store it all. We brought in a handyman to fit wall mounted shelving and a tabletop system which didn’t cost the earth. There is nothing better than having 3 metres of clear work surface. Even the cat loves the result!
A slightly different organising project!
The brief was to refurbish these primary school toilets. We wanted to get the kids involved so they gained a sense of ownership over the space.
We conducted workshops with every single class to teach them how to make mosaics from broken tiles. We chose different themes for the murals and colour coordinated the mosaic pieces to the partitions.
The result is light, colourful and fun!
Meant to be the kids’ area, everybody started using it as a dumping ground until nobody liked to be in that room any more. We decluttered with the kids, found solutions that worked for them, and created a cosy TV/craft/reading and computer area.
