Whether it’s running the children around, balancing your work schedule, moving into a new home, welcoming a new baby or just looking for more hours in your day, Room to Breathe is that extra set of helping hands you need to get everything in order in your full life. From moves and whole home overhauls to smaller troubled areas, we develop a sustainable system so you can maintain order effortlessly. In your home or workplace, we work hands-on to free you from disorganization and the feeling of being overwhelmed. Though we have a systematic approach, we do not believe in "one size fits all". We customize everything we do to your unique challenges and lifestyle needs. We exist to get you organized, living simply, and with clarity of mind.
Room to Breathe provides a one hour complimentary consultation in your home to assess your specific needs and challenges. This is an informal and non-judgmental 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. 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 with our 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.
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. 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.
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.
Moving is a great opportunity to de-clutter and make decisions about what possessions you really want and need. It makes good financial sense to move only what you’re going to use in your new home. Whether you are downsizing, transitioning into new life stage, or simply relocating, we’ll provide you with helpful guidance throughout your move as well as hands-on assistance.
Explore our moving services below- from decluttering, to packing, soft-staging, and unpacking (we'll even rid you of those pesky remaining boxes)!
Although we work to ensure that your newly organized space works for you long term, we are always 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.
Please ask if we can recommend any other home services or trades as we have an ever-expanding network of experts to call on when needed.
