Feeling stressed because you're surrounded by stuff? That stuff can actually make you happy, if it's efficiently and artistically displayed. And when organized properly, you can grab and go. Technology has helped reduce or eliminate the need for some stuff, like books and record albums, but we still need to store the items we do collect. Storage, home organization or space solutions – whatever you call it – has become a science using the latest technology. For example, hardware supplier Richelieu has teamed up with Panasonic to create revolving closet systems and shelves that pull down and return pneumatically, providing innovative ways to make our lives easier. START RIGHT – GET ORGANIZED Whether you're living in a tiny studio or a mansion, many of the same rules apply when it comes to getting organized: Purge: Get rid of things you don't need or that don't give you pleasure in some way. Learn to make sacrifices: In a small or large space, every object matters. Make choices and focus on priorities. Inventory items that need storage and display: Determine what type of storage or shelving you need. Make this scientific by calculating how much linear space and square footage is required. Design and plan: Plan where these items are going and then find the design solutions you need to maximize and beautify your space.
