Imagine clearing the clutter in your home or workplace and how much it will open up new opportunities for the area. Whether you have a cluttered home office, or use the room for storage, removing clutter makes it possible to use the space more efficiently. Here are ideas on how junk removal experts can bring your cluttered room greater value.
Decide What Stays and Goes
Once you decide on an idea for a new room, such as building a studio for art, design or photography, you need to figure out the best ways to clear the clutter. You can clear out smaller items on your own either through selling or giving away. The big stuff that’s hard to move can best be removed by Junk King.
Most people don’t think about hauling heavy items until it’s time to do so. Consequently, individuals can hurt their backs by not preparing properly for heavy lifting. It’s best to let professionals who regularly lift heavy items handle your junk removal, particularly for large furniture and appliances.
Clear Out Clutter with a Garage Sale
One of the best ways to clear out items that still have obvious utility is to sell them at a garage sale. If you have stacks of old videos or other popular items you never use anymore, a garage sale can be an effective way to ensure your old items still go to good use. The upside to a garage sale, is getting a little return on your investment for your previously loved items, but many people find the time and commitment of going through with a garage sale to be more hassle than its worth.
Find Buyers of Your Old Items Online
The more common way now to sell used items is online through sites like Craigslist or eBay and even Facebook marketplace. Many people are successful selling used items by tapping into a social media marketplace. It helps to post photos and a thorough description of each item for sale. After you post, monitor your messages so you can reply as soon as possible to inquiries.
This method again does require a level of time and commitment that should match the financial gain of your efforts. There is always risk involved when it comes to selling personal items to strangers.
Donate Old Items to Charity
Many charities exist in communities without high visibility. Think about where you would like your old items to end up and then contact an organization that works toward your interests. Find out if they accept donations. For large items too heavy to move like furniture, it’s safer, faster and easier to hire hauling experts at Junk King instead of attempting to move these items yourself. We are big advocates of donating your gently used items to those in need, and we are here to help you find a new home for these items.

Junk Removal Strategy
At Junk King our junk removal strategy is based on the most efficient way to get the items off your property. Our crew is trained to handle every type of hauling task you can imagine, either to clean out one room or an entire complex. Every job is different, so we have to customize a new special junk removal strategy everywhere we go.
Certain large items are best removed if they are dismantled onsite. This strategy makes it easier to haul away the individual parts, especially if they are lightweight. If the item can be reused, we may put it back together at the shop. Otherwise, we might send certain parts to certain recyclers. Almost anything made of metals, wood or plastic can be recycled into something new again.
Giving Junk New Life
Part of our mission at Junk King is to create more sustainable solutions for society, which means limiting the amount of junk we take to a landfill. Our top priority with junk we collect is to see that it becomes useful to someone in some way. If the product cannot be reused, it may be repurposed or recycled.
When you hire Junk King to clear the clutter you don’t have to feel guilty about trashing something that may be useful to someone else. Chances are it actually will be used by someone else. In fact, 60 percent of the junk we collect gets reused, repurposed or recycled.
Create Space for Your Dreams
When you clear the clutter you can begin to get busy on the room you’ve always dreamed about for exploring your creativity. Everyone has creative abilities and can develop hobbies. Devoting an entire room to your creative energy helps make goal-setting and achieving your goals easier. Here are some ideas for what to do with your new space:
1. Build a Studio for Your Creative Production
A studio has many possibilities for creative minds. If you have multiple hobbies such as art, music and photography, think about designing a multipurpose studio. Open space is often used in any type of studio – whether it’s for painting or recording – because it creates an open atmosphere that facilitates free flowing ideas.
2. Develop a Fitness Room
Another idea on how to use open space in a way that improves your quality of life is to devote it to fitness equipment. Whether you need to gain or lose weight, a home fitness center can get you in shape. During the pandemic people became increasingly aware that exercise plays an important role in maintaining good health.
3. Create a Home Theater
These days there’s so much technology and streaming media available for people to explore, everyone should think about devoting an entire room to entertainment. You can set it up with multiple screens and careful speaker placement to create effects from a movie theater or sports bar.
You might also consider creating a stage area if you or your family performs music or other forms of art. You can provide special memorable entertainment by putting on your own shows. Another idea for entertainment is to just design the room for parties and gatherings with space set aside for catering.
