There's no time like the present so why not make today the day? The day that you decide that where you live can be perfect for how you live.
Things just don't fit right, you may think. Or, if there were only more cabinets in this darn kitchen!
Whatever it is about your home that's cramping your style, here's a way to address it all now.
Make yourself a map. Not a map of your home the way it is exactly, but a map of what you need it to be.
Begin with what is unchangeable. For instance, if you are not prepared to do any reconstruction, all of your walls and fixed appliances and shelving are the first things that belong on your map.
Add in only furniture that you absolutely know is in the appropriate room. Leave out any large items that you think might not stay in place.
Next, it's time to dream. Fill in the blank rooms with a word or two for what you intend to do in those rooms.
Take your map from room to room and be a detective.
Does everything in this room relate to what it says on your map? Are there things that don't belong? Can everything that belongs be put away in some sort of storage in this room?
