When Holidays Are Over, Organization Begins!

This is the most wonderful time of the year! Cooler weather, holiday decorations, family, food – we can’t say enough how much we truly love this season. However, it is also the time of year when things (decorations, wrapping paper, gift tags, etc…) get accumulated beyond belief. At Techline Furniture, Cabinetry, & Closets, we know that these things don’t have places in your non-holiday lives, but where do you put them when the season is over?

Techline has taken some tips from Better Homes and Gardens and has applied them to our holiday decorations. Now we share them with you!

  • Holiday Ornaments. Store similarly shaped ornaments, such as glittery orbs, in boxes with compartments. Wrap each ornament in tissue paper and fit it inside its own compartment; if an ornament is a lot smaller than the compartment, pad it with small pieces of bubble wrap so it won’t be jostled in storage. When you’re finished putting all the ornaments in their box, make a list on the outside of the box so you know what ornaments it holds for next year.
  • Holiday Wreaths. Wreaths made from faux fir or pine can easily be stored in hat boxes or hung up in the back of a closet. If you prefer to hang your holiday wreaths, attach each wreath to a wire hanger using florist‘s wire or twist ties, and cover the wreath and hanger in plastic to protect the wreath from dust. Hang in the back of a closet, the basement, or the attic, and simply unwrap the wreath next year to display.
  • Christmas Tree Lights. There are several handy ways to store Christmas tree lights so they remain untangled for the following year. When taking the lights down, be sure to wrap around your arm so they remain untangled, and store them in a plastic container, using clips or wire to hold a circular shape so the lights stay neat and organized for next year.
  • Mantel Displays. It’s important when storing decorations from a multiple-part display that you keep the parts together for easy reassembly next year. Wrap each component in bubble wrap or tissue paper and store neatly in a box. If you used fresh pine or fir sprigs for a mantel display, make a note of that on the box so you’ll be able to recreate the same display year after year.
  • Dining Table Set. Keep everything from your fine Christmas china to the napkins, centerpieces, and place cards all in one place. If you have a hutch to store special dishes in, stack them according to size. Fold cloth napkins and store in the same place, or keep packages of paper holiday napkins in a nearby drawer with the holiday place cards and silverware. If the Christmas table centerpieces are made from materials that can be used year after year, dismantle and keep in a separate box, making sure to label it and store in a place where you’ll easily find it next year.

Organization doesn’t have to be a stressful time for you! And if you find you’re running out of storage room, give Techline a call for help!

De-Stress this Holiday Season

Techline Furniture, Cabinetry, & Closets will be the first to say it: the holidays are stressful.

With the cleaning, cooking, entertaining…it can take a toll on you and your home. But it shouldn’t! If you keep your home organized, not only will it make things simpler when your guests arrive, but for YOUR well being!

Benefits of Organization:

  • More YOU time. This one’s simple. If you’re house is organized and uncluttered, you’ll spend less time cleaning, tidying and putting things back in their place. You’ll get to spend more time on the things you want to do.
  • More money. In an organized home, you won’t lose things. Those missing socks won’t need to be replaced. You’ll know exactly how much toilet paper is left, and when it’s time to buy some more. You’ll be able to see what your home has, what your home needs, and what needs replacing. You’ll be able to take an easy stock of your home, and plan your purchases accordingly.
  • Improved family relationships. All too often, clutter, misplaced items, and disorganization bring up quarrels between spouses, as well as parents and their children. Getting organized will eliminated this problem-causer.
  • Easy access. When your home is organized, everything will have a specific place. Each item will be easy to find, access and use quickly. It’s a time-saver!
  • Entertaining. If your home is disorganized and you’d like to throw a party, dinner or other get together, you’ll need days of notice, so you can spend hours and hours of cleaning, organizing and readying your house. Wouldn’t you like to be able to have friends over spur of the moment, with no planning ahead needed? Organization allows you this luxury. Your home is ready to be shown off!
  • Setting a great example for your children. Raising your children in an organized home will give them great skills to carry on through their lives. They’ll take the organizational examples you set and carry them on into their schoolwork, career and future families.
  • Better mental health. Simply put, you’ll be less stressed, and you’ll be happier. Without a messy home on the mind, you’re free to focus on the things that really matter!

Don’t let disorganization hurt you – Organization can lead to some great things in your life!

Create Your Dream Master Closet

Let’s face it, your master closet is so much more than a place to hold clothes and shoes. Master closets end up being a store-all space that holds accessories, storage, old keepsakes and new trends. So why keep it in total chaos? Save those precious morning minutes by reorganizing your Master closet!

It can be as simple as a a quick organization or as complex as an entire re-do! But no matter which you choose, plan your space to maximize the space to accommodate your wardrobe and storage needs.

  • Utilize that wall space. Closets are so much more than a metal rod stretching from one end to the other. By using a combination of hanging space, open shelves, and drawers, you create a more elegant feel (and a proper place to tuck away those intimates or ugly socks).
  • Don’t just throw everything you own on a hanger and then on the rod. Take the time to separate jackets from shirts, jeans from dresses. Not only will it make your mornings easier, you’ll find that you have more room for maybe one more skirt or one more pair of slacks.
  • Use pull out baskets. You can fit a ton more socks in one container, fold shirts, ties, pants, etc and save on hanging room! Have a child? These are perfect for clothes or toys more in reach.
  • Plan ahead. Decide how you want your personal closet to feel. Want something softer? Use rounded edges. Use your closet as storage? Use corner shelves that maximize storage without sacrificing hanging space.

Whether you are looking for something extravagant or simply functional, Techline Furniture, Cabinetry, & Closets‘ closet designers are knowledgeable and creative. For more tips about organization and Techline‘s products and services, check out our Facebook page!

Walk-Inable Walk In Closets

We know you love your master closet, but that doesn’t mean that every other closet in your home has to be ordinary. Whether it’s for storing clothes or other items, a walk in closet needs to be organized in order to make the most out of the space.

  • Increase hanging space. Really utilize double rods to double that space. Take the time to separate jackets from shirts, jeans from dresses – keeping like things together will organize and shrink the space.
  • Add accessible and adjustable shelving. These hide the things you don’t want to see and/or provide a home for those things that don’t seem to belong anywhere else. Not all closets have to hold clothes, so if you’re using yours to hold crafts, papers, etc., these shelves are perfect!
  • Utilize drawers and baskets to conceal clutter. You can fit a ton more socks in one container, fold shirts, ties, pants, etc and save on hanging room! Have a child? These are perfect for clothes or toys more in reach.

Let a Techline closet designer show you how you can create usable space you didn’t even know you had. A closet system from Techline gives your walk-in closet definition and function beyond the basics. To see more about our products and services, visit our Facebook page!

Bathrooms Galore!

Like any room in your house, your bathroom should be spectacular and comfortable. It is a room you spend a lot of time in, so why not make it just as amazing as the rest of your home?!

Whether you’re starting a bathroom from scratch or just giving your existing one a makeover, remember these simple tips:

  • Clean out. Products, expired medicine/vitamins, used razors and beauty items you haven’t used in 6 months, throw it out! See what you have, don’t have, and what you use the most so you can start fresh.
  • Organize. Small bathrooms are huge and some small, but they ALL could use some extra storage space for those random items you can’t live without. Organize items by importance – the things you use most, keep on the counter or close by; things you rarely use can go in drawers and closets. The less important the item, the further away from the counter it should be.
  • Make use of that dead space. That space can be filled with floating shelves, cabinets, wall mounts, etc. Don’t want to buy jewelry stands? Use your towel rack to display it all!
  • Be yourself! Add those quirky things that make you you. You’ll be spending the most time in there, so make it a place you WANT to be!

Techline Furniture, Cabinetry & Closets Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary

Techline Furniture, Cabinetry & Closets of Fort Worth celebrates its 20th Anniversary with new branding, logo design, website design, showroom upgrades, and new products and service offerings. The BRAND NEW website can be viewed at http://www.Techine-DFW.com. The company was formally known as Techline Furniture & Cabinetry. The company has added a whole new closet division thus changing the name to accommodate its fastest growing division!

“We are so proud of how far we’ve come in 20 years,” said Carol Osteen, president of Techline Furniture, Cabinetry & Closets. “Our design team creates custom organizational solutions for your home and business with high quality products and customer service. We can take any space and make if more efficient for you. Our brand new website really showcases our design solutions and what we can do for our clients. We can design anything!”

For 20 years co-owners Carol K. Osteen and Jerry D. Courter have provided the DFW Metroplex with expertly designed furniture & storage systems. Since its’ founding in 1991, Techline has really evolved into offering one-stop-shop solutions for homes and businesses, and also has implemented environmentally conscious ‘green’ initiatives with products that meet LEED certification.

Carol started Techline out of necessity when she started building her own home and needed an organizational solution provider. With her zest and skill for organization, Carol opened Techline Studio in 1991 as one of the first non-architectural firms in the country able to be a distributor using the Techline name. In 1993, Jerry became Carol’s Partner & Vice President of Sales, changing the company name to Techline Furniture & Cabinetry. Jerry came directly from Techline USA factory in Wisconsin, where he served as the first-ever factory-direct sales representative for the company. Techline’s growth and expansion into more products resulted in its current name change to Techline Furniture, Cabinetry & Closets. They had several locations until they decided to build their own building on West Freeway in Fort Worth five years ago.

Techline’s showroom is located at 3801 West Freeway in Fort Worth or view the online showroom at http://www.Techline-DFW.com/showroom.html.
