The rainy days of fall are finally in full force. And the more we stay inside and cozy up by the fire, the more we notice household chores that require our attention. That includes reorganization.
There are five rooms in the home that require constant reorganization: closets, garages, pantries, offices, and laundry rooms. Thanks to their constant utility and heavy foot traffic, it's not possible to keep them clean all the time.
Thankfully, getting the house in order is easier than you might think. All you need is elbow grease, a little gumption, and a touch of intuition to get started!
Here are some simple tactics that can help you completely standardize, consolidate, and systemize your spaces.
1. Closet Organization
From reach-ins and walk-ins to mudrooms and more, closets can make or break our ability to get dressed well.
Prepare for an orderly fall season by:
- Culling the closet by donating unwanted clothing
- Updating spaces with cubbies, drawers, and baskets
- Considering custom closet accessories like tie racks and jewelry drawers

They may be a “catch-all” for tools, chemicals, and equipment, but garages can still be transformed into orderly spaces.
You may want to:
- Install Rubbermaid FastTrack Systems to store items off the floor
- Add new shelving to the walls and edges of the garage space
- Purchase an outdoor shed to house infrequently used items
Storing food in the pantry is one thing, but keeping everything organized is quite another.
If you'd like to cook dinner without cringing at the mess, we suggest:
- Emptying the pantry to remove expired or unwanted items
- Labeling glass jars and baskets to easily find items while cooking
- Maximizing space with corner shelves, drawers, and hook baskets
Whether you work from home or enjoy the quiet of a study, optimizing your office space is always a great idea—when done right, that is.
Here's what you should do:
- Toss or shred older documents that no longer have a purpose for your home or business
- Upgrade your ergonomics with a better chair, nicer table, or even standing workstation
- Purchase secondary accessories like keyboard trays, pull-out shelving, and file storage solutions
5. Laundry Rooms
The laundry room is the beating heart of any household.
Skip the clutter and fold your winter clothes in style by:
- Installing an island for easier storage and organization
- Upgrading your space with hanging shelves, drawers, and cubbies
- Adding Rubbermaid FastTrack Systems to dry delicate clothes and find missing pairs
The above storage solutions can work in practically any environment. However, their successful installation begins and ends with professional assistance. If you’ve been thinking about organizing your home for fall, don’t hesitate to contact the expert team at Louisiana Custom Closets.
