Decluttering, Organizing, & Creating Structure in Your Spaces From the Very Beginning

Moving is one of life’s most stressful events. We all know that. Still, according to a survey, the average American has physically packed up and moved five separate times in their lifetime. Some other astonishing facts discovered on the stress of this life event include

Unpacking and Organizing Service Denver
  • 56% consider themselves to be expert movers

  • More than seven in ten people prefer to hire movers

  • 4 in 10 people begin their packing with miscellaneous items

  • Most people grossly underestimate the number of things they own and have to pack

Organizing Companies Make Moving & Unpacking Easier

Have you ever considered hiring a professional organizer near me? Our job is to assist you in minimizing the stress and overwhelm associated with moving by efficiently organizing and unpacking your home in a short amount of time.

At Organized by Keli & Co, we want you to get into a regular routine as soon as possible. By removing the clutter of boxes and the stress of finding new homes for all of your items, you can move forward in your new space with a fresh (and organized) start! 

Before the unpacking comes the packing.

We almost forgot! While unpacking your home in three days can seem like a daunting task, the more prepared you are, to begin with, the better the unpacking will go. At Organized by Keli & Co, our Organized Move Services include everything you need to get your things from point A to point B. 

However, not everyone is looking for hands-on assistance with every step of their move. We have some expert organizing tips to help make the packing part less stressful.

  • Declutter first. Before you even begin to pack, a good purge is necessary. Hold an estate sale or garage sale. Donate items locally. If you don’t love it or don’t need it, then don’t bring it! 

  • Prep early. You want to pack early, but not too early. Once decluttering is completed, you can pack up your house from top to bottom in about a week. 

  • Pack by room. Keep your packing focused and make yourself a checklist that keeps you motivated to move on to the next space.

  • Label it. Labels provide efficiency and organization. Also, they greatly help in the unpacking phase.

Unpacking Your Denver, CO Home in Three Days

At Organized by Keli & Co, we unpack and organize your new home in one fell swoop. Why? You have a clean slate, so it is best to take advantage of it before the clutter and chaos of living settle in. 

We organize your new space by analyzing each room, determining where your items will go, and creating cohesive functionality throughout your home. But how do we actually manage to unpack your home in three days? 

First, we get into unpacking mode.

Then, we create zones throughout your home to help you establish routines and an organized lifestyle.

Last, we add final touches to make you feel at home after your big move.

Let us break down the steps in more detail; share some of our strategies (like having multiple helping hands) to help make your process smooth sailing.

Get into unpacking mode. 

Unpacking, organizing and hands-on organizing require very different processes with like-minded end goals. The benefit to having Organized by Keli & Co in your corner from the moment you move into your home is that it is a fresh start. Fewer steps are needed to accomplish your end goal.

We bring a stellar team to help you achieve your goals. Before helping you with your organized move and unpacking, we strategize by figuring out: first, how big your move is and, second, how many team members we need to get your home well-adjusted in just a few days.

We are personable and committed to the cause. As if we haven’t said it enough, moving your entire life from one home to another is stressful and overwhelming. Becoming your own project manager can end up with you hiding in a corner wishing the entire process is over. 

It doesn’t need to be that way. 

At Organized by Keli & Co, our team of professionals comes in on time and on task to manage your move for you. We have all the tools to make unpacking and organizing your spaces a breeze. Our team will put you and your family at ease with our confident and compassionate nature as we walk through your home. We will take inventory of the number of boxes; we know what we need to unpack.

Productivity Consultant Denver

We prioritize and delegate to get things done. Priority is almost always placed on your kitchen space and the homeowner’s suite (bedroom, bathroom, closet). From there, we tackle additional main rooms and work our way through specialized rooms, such as an office or craft room. 

We also work with you to determine what your personal priorities are. For example, you may work from home and need to be up and running ASAP–your office has just become a priority space.

Once we establish your priority and secondary spaces, we get to work delegating to team members based on their expertise and passions within home organizing. Our team at Organized by Keli & Co has some unique and devoted team members who know exactly how to make the most of your spaces.

Create zones in your home.

As professional organizers, we have an opportunity (and an obligation) to create routines that will be easy to maintain and assist your family in their day-to-day lives. So, we create zones within our clients’ spaces to help them take advantage of prime real estate for the items that matter most and to push not-as-important objects to other areas. 

We start with broad categories. Creating broad categories will help us and our clients see what they have the most of, what is important to them, and then we make zones around those items. 

When items get zoned at Organized by Keli & Co, we stick to zone one for important/daily use, zone two for moderate use, and zone three for items used the least/seasonally/etc. 

Unpack first, then organize. You cannot zone out items if there are still boxes around. Our organizers work to ensure every single thing in your space, whether it is the kitchen or the playroom, is out and ready to be given a home. Organizing is a visual journey, so seeing all the pieces helps us put the puzzle back together in the most efficient way possible. 

Create visual appeal. Once essential items are where they belong, you begin to create visual appeal by using coordinating bins/baskets, lining items with the front edge of shelves, and generally embodying a model home look. The visual side of organizing helps your home have a clean, well-maintained appearance while also feeling elegant and eye-catching from the start.

Add the final touches to your space.

Organizing is like writing an essay, you can have all the essential elements where they belong, but without a little fluff, it comes out dull and monotonous. Once organized, adding that homey touch or personal flair will help your house feel like home.

Some of the easiest ways to add those final touches to your home include

  • Hanging pictures or artwork

  • Tweaking or replacing furnishings

  • Adding decorative accessories to table tops, counters, bookshelves, etc. that give your space that polished appearance

  • Fluff the pillows and add a throw blanket on couches/beds

Whether you have a professional organizer tackle these personal touches or DIY them, remember to snag some after photos. You’ll want to document all that hard work that went into unpacking and prepping your new home in just a few days! 

At OBK & Co, We Like to Move It, Move It

By it, we mean move your things into your new home! As one of Denver’s best home organizers, we work hard to provide options, like our organized moving services to clients. We want you to enjoy a functional, motivational, and relaxing home from day one.

Instead of stressing over your big move, reach out about our Organized Move services or contact us for a complimentary consultation before making your final decision.
