Function Over Perfection

Whether you’re considering a major home improvement project or just want your space to be more organized and functional, make sure you set an objective you can achieve. I’ve worked with clients for two decades as a professional organizer and when we start a project, I encourage them to strive for function over perfection.

Perfection isn’t attainable.

Look for ways to make your space more functional and you’ll be more likely to reach your goal and create the space you want.

For example, organizing a more functional kitchen space could mean clearing countertops of appliances and gadgets you no longer use, and storing all your baking items in the same area so everything you need is in one place.

You will be more efficient in your kitchen when items are grouped with like items, and when you have got more space to work with. Your kitchen can become more functional even if it’s not perfectly clean or organized. You can still have a junk drawer and enjoy a space that works for you.

Organizing your home can seem like a monumental task, but it gets easier when you break it down into smaller tasks that contribute to your overall goal of function over perfection.

Look for ways to make your space more functional and you’ll be more likely to reach your goal and create the space you want.

Of course, sometimes it’s easier to enlist the help of a professional. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, send an email to me at Linda@UnclutteredNW.com and let’s talk about what’s on your mind.
