Transform small spaces into charming places (Family Features) In home listings across the country, the word small is often replaced with a far more marketable and appealing word: “charming.” But what makes a home charming compared to small? How does a homeowner transition a cramped room into a space with unique and appealing character? Focusing on a few key areas will let you make a big impact in a little space, allowing you to create a charming and memorable environment. For starters, when dealing with a small space, it’s important to live clutter free. Make sure that only mandatory items and furniture are in the room. Create special spaces and storage Lorie Marrero, a certified professional organizer and author of “The Clutter Diet,” recommends carefully considering the functions of any space, such as TV viewing, reading or computer use, so that only the items needed for those specific functions are stored there. Understanding how this space is utilized also allows you to establish dedicated zones and supplies for each activity more efficiently. In addition, Marrero notes

that creating proper storage is the key to managing and maintaining a clutter-free home. “Even if large closets aren’t available, there are a number of versatile and affordable DIY products that help create storage where there wasn’t any. ClosetMaid’s wide assortment of products can help transform any room of the home simply by allowing people to truly utilize the space they have.” Make it larger with lighting Clearing a small home of its clutter will automatically make it seem larger. However, the illusion of more space can also be enhanced with proper lighting. The right lighting will also play a big role in helping create a more charming feel. Recessed lighting is visu-

ally appealing and perfect for small spaces. Torchiere lights can help bounce light off the ceiling and back down to the room. If the room does not have windows, consider adding a skylight to bring character and light to the space. You can also affect a room’s lighting with lowcost or no-cost solutions that make the most of the space’s built-in features. For example, highlight the windows, don’t cover

them. If the room has a fireplace, emphasize it. Add charming details Woodwork is another simple embellishment that adds instant character and charm without affecting usable space. A chair rail, crown molding or even baseboards can help take a standard room and outline it with interesting architectural elements. In a small area, intricate woodwork can serve as a main focal point or art, giving the space exceptional appeal that

won’t be easily forgotten. By managing clutter, using lighting to create bright and airy spaces and incorporating simple architectural elements, you can easily transform a cramped area into a charming and inviting room that you – or a potential buyer – can enjoy. For more information about how to live clutter free, visit, www. or call 1-800-874-0008.

Four steps for attacking garage organization (Family Features) Organizing the garage may be one of the most feared tasks in household history. According to a recent Gladiator GarageWorks survey, nearly three out of four households can only park one car in their two-car garage, illustrating the need for a serious garage intervention. The importance of having a well-organized garage isn't only for improved functionality - it also helps add overall value to a home. More than 80 percent of real estate brokers or agents recently surveyed said that a cluttered, unorganized garage can have a negative impact on a potential home buyer's first impression. Since the garage is often used as the "front door" to homes, having an untidy garage can be very unwelcoming. There are a few steps that can help homeowners prepare for the ultimate battle against clutter and reclaim their space in the garage: 1. Clean and Prep Clutter is one of the biggest issues with garage organization. The only way to know what is in the garage is to remove all of the items inside and start with a clean slate. As you remove items from the

garage, be realistic about what you do and do not use and move them into categories: Keep items you use regularly. Donate or sell items that are still in good shape but aren't being used regularly. Toss items that are broken and that you don't need.

sporting equipment. Next, decide how to group similar items and what your storage needs are. For example, do you prefer to hang items on hooks, store in baskets or be able to hide items in cabinets? Start exploring your options with design tools, such as the one at, to finalize your plans.

2. Have a Game Plan First, measure the garage so you can make an accurate plan for storage solutions and factor in large items, such as lawn mowers and

3. Build Your Storage System Use the walls in your garage to get gear off the See Garage, Page 18

floor and maximize storage space by choosing storage solutions that are durable and long lasting. Stackable plastic storage bins or shelving units can sometimes reduce clutter, but they aren't always built to handle extreme temperatures in the garage. They also provide limited design flexibility and access to items when you need them. "Consider a modular storage system for the walls - they get everything off the floor and allow you to customize so you can reclaim your space," said Karl Champley, DIY expert and master builder. "These garage systems are convenient and easy to install giving you the ultimate wall storage solution

for baskets, shelves, hooks and various other accessories. These systems are the perfect way to achieve the dream garage." Gladiator GarageWorks modular storage system "starter kits" are available at most major home improvement retailers and can help homeowners start to organize cluttered areas of the garage. 4. Add Final Touches Once you have stored large items in your garage, it's time to add some final touches to maximize efficiency and make your workspace functional. Keep a trashcan nearby your work area so it stays

free of garbage and debris. Hang tools near your workbench so you can easily put them back in their proper place. Utilize smaller bins and storage containers for screws, nails and other small items so they don't clutter your space. ­­­­­——— With these steps in mind, tackling a garage organization project should be much easier.
