Spring is in the air and many homeowners are gearing up for their annual spring-cleaning blitz. According to the American Cleaning Institute, on average, Americans spend about six hours cleaning their homes every week. Experts say that one of the most important steps a homeowner can take to minimize cleaning time is to declutter the home of unnecessary items.

Decluttering can be accomplished best when done strategically. Prepare to have within your reach plastic containers for items that you mindfully decide to retain, large black trash bags for those items that you decide to toss and a few cardboard boxes for items you’ll donate.


While decluttering will go a long way, the lack of basements and overall smaller square footage of Hawaii homes put many homeowners in an unenviable position. Where exactly do you store your plastic containers with those valuable keepsakes, as well as the surplus supplies you decide to hang on to?

The design-build experts at HK Construction, a fourth-generation kamaaina company, know how to re-imagine living spaces and renovate for maximum function. Rooms can be designed with multiple purposes in mind, creating storage features that extend their use. For example, a food pantry might be added to a nearby laundry room for additional storage. A laundry and bathroom combination can free up space elsewhere in the home. There are many innovative ways that HK Construction can help homeowners make the most of their spaces.
