One of the best ways to make tidying up before hosting social events easier is to use a custom closet design to optimize your storage spaces.
How to Tidy Up for Your Next Party
Core Custom Closets
Whether you work for an organization that regularly hosts events, or you’re simply hosting birthday parties and other private get-togethers at home, you’ll likely need to tidy up before the party gets started. A sound approach to organization and using a custom closet design to maximize your storage areas can go a long way. Ultimately, you can make your parties more welcoming and ensure that cleanup is less of a hassle afterward.
Start With a Clean Foundation
The first step is to clean your home and, especially, those spaces where people will be congregating. This means throwing out any junk lying around, vacuuming/mopping, and all the other basic stuff. Sound like a hassle? Remember, you can always hire a professional cleaning company to ease the burden.
Put Valuables, Breakables, and Personal Mementos in Storage
If you have fragile stuff in the area intended for gathering, it’s wise to reduce if not completely remove it. For example, you might have a beautiful glass vase that, while it might impress visitors, could also end up broken if someone bumps into it. Likewise, you might remove valuable crystal statues and the like.
Having some personal stuff out, such as photographs, is certainly alright for private functions at private residences. However, you may want to reduce how much personal stuff is on display. If there’s too much personal clutter, it can make your home less welcoming, and some people might feel like fish out of water.
Optimize Your Storage Spaces
One of the best ways to make tidying up before hosting social events easier is to use a custom closet design to optimize your storage spaces. The right shelving, drawers, and other solutions can allow even a relatively small space to accommodate quite a bit. With custom designs, you can make sure every inch of floor and vertical space is put to good use.
Further, you can design your storage systems so that it's easy to pull things out of storage and put them back in as needed. You might put your personal mementos into storage while pulling out party supplies. Once the event is over, you can swap everything again. This way, both tidying up before and cleaning after a social event is a breeze.
