KATHY'S MAJOR REVAMP
Kathy is a mother of four, wife to Russ’ and runs her growing letting reference business from home.
STEP ONE: RE-IMAGINE YOUR HOME
Kathy loved her house but not the way she was living. In a nutshell she wanted to create some order from the chaos and create some space to live and work in. She needed to reclaim her surfaces, cupboards and wardrobes; some of the stuff had been in there untouched for five years, about the time she’d started her business.
STEP TWO: REMOVE YOUR CLUTTER
We planned our assault on the clutter using an action plan. Room by room, cupboard by cupboard and pile-by-pile the clutter was sifted and sorted. Kitchen, lounge/diner and the children’s bedrooms were the focus. The fact that Kathy was more than ready to deal with the clutter made a huge difference. Decisions about what was staying and going became a no-brainer. “It’s been in this cupboard for 5 years and I haven’t looked at it or needed it; it’s going”. Then came the Revamp!
STEP THREE: SET YOURSELF FREE
When we were done I asked her how she felt, Kathy said “I guess it could be summed up in a few words; function, flow, light and space. It really does feel like a weight has been lifted; it feels so much lighter and brighter and so do I” was her conclusion. I could see and feel the difference and so could she.
