Room to Breathe provides a one hour consultation in your home to assess your specific needs and challenges. This is an informal and nonjudgmental tour of your space, and a great chance for us to meet each other. You can feel at ease as we hold your personal information confidential and respect your belongings. Please resist any temptation to tidy before we arrive, as it’s beneficial we view your space as you use it.
Once we exceed your expectations in the consultation stage, you’ll be ready to move forward with next steps. Together, we’ll discuss your budget and arrange a plan of action that best suits your needs. Then the fun begins.
On day one, we’ll arrive on time, sleeves rolled up, excited and ready to work hard. With your help we’ll establish project parameters and work with you on purging decisions and functionality of space. Beyond decision-making, your level of involvement is up to you.
We follow a proven method when organizing to stay focused and efficient. Throughout the entire process, we strive to motivate you and offer helpful tips and information to develop sustainable new habits once we’re gone. Plus, we want you to get us to do the things you may not enjoy - we'll build your IKEA furniture, deliver and set up your clothing consignment account, and even help prepare your tax files for the accountant. We also do enjoy a little shopping, so with our professional organizing knowledge and experience, we can help find the best containers and storage supplies for your space.
At the end of the project, we'll invite you for a final walk through to ensure there's no loose ends, to make sure you know where to find everything once we're gone, and to remind you of any tips for ease of upkeep. Why not bring along the whole family, and if you have one, the house cleaner and nanny too. This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone in your home to be on the same page with a fresh start.
Finally, once all is said and done, our team will send you an itemized invoice for all services and products delivered. We accept payment by cash, cheque, or e-transfer. Payment is due upon receipt.
At the end of each day, or the end of a project, we’ll happily haul away and find the best home for your unwanted items, so you’re left with a finished product and peace of mind.
Although we work to ensure that your newly organized space works for you long term, we are of course happy to come back when new life situations arise - moving or downsizing, welcoming a new baby, estate support, or any other big life transition. We also have clients that prefer to schedule regular maintenance sweeps or ongoing upkeep to ensure everything continues to run smoothly. Whatever level of support you may need, we are happy to help.
Feel free to ask if we can recommend a Furniture Re-upholsterer, House Cleaner, Designer, Home Stager, Children's Artwork Archiver, Realtor, and more. We have an ever expanding network of experts to call on when needed.
