Boulder, CO Basement Transformations

The Great Laundry Takeover
Basement Transformation: May 2024

Some basement clearings aren't as dramatic as others but still worth sharing. In this particular case, it took 2 people less than 2 hours to create a clearing and remove all of the clutter that was 3 years in the making.

Basements usually become the dumping ground for all things in a home that most people don't know what else to do with and this one was no exception. But the client couldn't see past the piles of laundry, camping gear and other stuff anymore so that is when hiring a professional organizer can really help you get past those piles. We did leave her with two piles...donations and laundry. The donations were gone the next day. The laundry, however, is a work in progress that we recommended having a local Wash n Fold service pick it up ASAP. Hopefully that will be the only time the client needs to send laundry out and will establish better laundry maintenance habits moving forward.


But if the pile does grow again then don't beat yourself up over it and recognize it is something that you may just have to continue to pay for someone else to do it so you can focus on other things that will set you up for success.

BTW...hiring an organizer is still cheaper than having to repurchase stuff because you can't find it.

And hiring us?

It means we will work with any budget and will offer discounts if you are struggling financially. We never want anyone to feel as though that can't afford to declutter their home because we know that it will ultimately help declutter their minds. ✌️

Boulder, CO Basement Storage Transformation

Reclaiming Space!
Basement Transformation: March 2024

For this basement transformation, we were a team of 2 that managed to get the clearing the client wanted in less than 3 hours. It was pretty straightforward as far as getting everything sorted by categories so the client could truly see everything for the first time in years as opposed to it all being in a giant pile. The ultimate goal was to declutter the space enough so the client could begin the process of refinishing the space. Could she have done it without our help? Possibly...the rest of her house was very well organized and uncluttered but she just allowed the basement to get too cluttered and couldn't visual where to start peeling back the proverbial layers. Once we were there, though, it was much easier for her to make decisions about what would stay vs. get donated. We love when a client is engaged and can go through the process with us and are grateful we had the opportunity to help the way we did.

And here is a photo of the donations. There were a lot of sheets, towels and a few other things that were taken to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and the rest went to a local thrift store.

Boulder, CO - Categorize and Declutter

Start your basement organization journey by categorizing and decluttering your belongings. Take everything out of the basement and sort items into categories, such as seasonal decor, tools, sports equipment, or keepsakes. Assess each item and be ruthless in deciding what to keep, donate, or discard. By decluttering first, you'll create more space to work with and have a clearer vision for organizing the remaining items.

Boulder, CO - Maximize Vertical Storage

Basements often have high ceilings, making them ideal for utilizing vertical storage solutions. Install sturdy shelving units along the walls to store boxes, bins, and larger items. Use labeled containers or clear plastic bins to keep similar items together and easily visible. Consider using wall-mounted hooks or pegboards to hang tools, garden equipment, or bicycles. By utilizing vertical space, you'll free up floor space and create an organized and easily accessible basement.

Boulder, CO - Create Zones

Divide your basement into functional zones to make it easier to find and access items. Create specific areas for different purposes, such as a workshop, storage for seasonal items, or a designated area for children's toys. Clearly label each zone and use signage or colored tape to demarcate the boundaries. This zoning approach will not only help you locate items quickly but also maintain organization over time.

Boulder, CO - Invest in Proper Storage

Invest in suitable storage solutions to keep your basement organized and protected. Use sturdy, stackable plastic bins with lids to store items that are susceptible to dust or moisture. Consider adding shelving with adjustable height options to accommodate various-sized items. Additionally, utilize storage racks or ceiling-mounted hoists for bulky items like kayaks or large sporting equipment. By investing in appropriate storage, you'll safeguard your belongings and optimize your basement space.

Boulder, CO - Regular Maintenance and Inventory

Maintain your organized basement by performing regular maintenance and inventory checks. Set aside time each season to reassess and declutter items that are no longer needed or used. Take inventory of your stored items, update labels if necessary, and make note of anything that requires repair or replacement. Regular maintenance will ensure that your basement remains organized, functional, and clutter-free.


With these five essential basement organizing tips, you can transform your cluttered basement into a well-organized and efficient space. By categorizing and decluttering, maximizing vertical storage, creating functional zones, investing in proper storage solutions, and performing regular maintenance, you'll create a basement that optimizes storage capacity and minimizes stress. So roll up your sleeves, embrace the organizing process, and unlock the hidden potential of your basement!
