Day 7: Dining Room

Updated: May 18, 2020

Hello, friends! Welcome to Day 7 of Organizing Your Entire Home in 20 Days!

We are going to keep moving forward with the different areas in your house and today we are going to focus on your dining room!

This space is not often present in newer homes. The need for a formal dining area isn't what it used to be. If you don't have a dining room, you may have some of the elements we discuss in this blog in other areas of the home.

Make sure to check out the hutch in your kitchen or the table everyone sits at near the living room. You can check out our posts from earlier in the series!

The dining room is a place to gather and relax with your family, if you don't feel that way when in your dining room, this one is for you. Let’s get started!

The first step in the organizing process is to gather all of the items that are in the dining room and place them on the table.

Bring out all of the items that are in dining room server or hutch, from within drawers, and leave anything that was on the table at the beginning. This includes any papers, dishes, decorations, seasonal items and any other miscellaneous items.

Gathering all of the items together will help you see what items truly belong there and what items need to find a spot elsewhere in your house.

After you have gathered together all of the items in the dining room, its time to categorize everything into groups.

Place all of the similar items together; plates with plates, mugs with mugs, decorations with decorations, and so on. Keep going until all of the items that you brought out are in a group with other like items
