Temperatures are slowly rising and Daylight Saving Time has just begun, which means that spring is on its way. Spring is all about renewal, and what better way to refresh your home than with spring cleaning and organizing?
Here’s something we can all agree on: Doing laundry is a drag. Toting around a basket full of dirty clothes is no fun, and while it only takes a minute or two to deposit clothes in the washer and then move them to the dryer at the conclusion of the spin cycle, there’s so much more involved. Separating clothes. Folding clean clothes. Putting them back in your closet. And to top it all off, it’s a never-ending cycle. By the time you finish a few days’ worth of laundry, you likely have new articles of clothing that are now ready to be washed. But there’s hope. Keeping your laundry room clean and organized can make the chore a little less frustrating. Here are our top tips for making your laundry routine a little less painful.

When you build a walk-in closet, the design possibilities are seemingly endless. Not only can a designer create a closet that gives your entire wardrobe—and anything else you need to store—its own space, you can also build a closet that goes beyond just a place to keep your clothes. You can showcase your clothes and accessories and create an inviting personal boutique.
We buy a house to have more space. To have a dwelling we can call our own. Ideally, most of us buy homes with enough bedrooms for the whole family, and, if we’re lucky, an extra room or two for mom’s visit over the holidays or a place for a friend from out of town to stay—because the last thing you want to do is force your friends, family and loved ones to shell out $200 a night to sleep in a hotel nearby.
It’s a simple fact (or at least it seems to be): Most men have a harder time staying organized than women—they’re not offended by clutter in the same way and, sometimes, they’d rather just take off their shoes and leave them in the middle of the mud room, living room, hallway, bedroom or bathroom.
