Frequently Asked Questions

What do professional organisers actually do?

Believe it or not, there’s a lot more to being a professional organiser than labelling and folding clothes, or even dividing your belongings into categories -“keep”, “toss”, “sell”, “donate”. Professional organisers are skilled and experienced specialists who can help you create order where it is lacking, so that you can feel happier and function more efficiently in all areas of your life. Professional organising is a growing industry around the world and recently has started gaining popularity in continental Europe too. Feel free to take a look at our offered services.

Why should I choose Before & After - Professional Organisers?

  • First of all – we are very passionate about what we do!

You can reach out to us for an initial consultation free of charge to discuss your needs and the project you have in mind.
  • We tap into our adaptability and flexibility to provide you with a personalised solution.
  • We have market insights which will be beneficial to you. We know and can recommend furniture and decoration stores, kitchen and closet companies, movers, painters, various organising products and stores, amongst others.

What is the mission of Before & After?

  • Our mission is to build a trusted relationship with you and provide you with the best support before, during and after the decluttering and/or organising process.
  • We aim to establish practical, sustainable and environmentally responsible solutions, which will enable you to take control of your life and surroundings.

Do I need a professional organiser?

Professional organising is not a luxury service and can benefit everyone who is:

  • preparing for a relocation or downsizing;
  • going through a certain life change such as welcoming of a new family member, separation or loss;
  • busy, unable or unmotivated to do the work alone;
  • in need of inspiration, professional tips and a helping hand.

In which language can I communicate with you?

Siyana will help you in English and Bulgarian while Jérôme is also fluent in French, German and Luxembourgish.

What if I am embarrassed that my home is too messy to show you?

We enter into your life and personal space with empathy, understanding and professionalism. We see your situation as a transition phase and we are here to support you through it.

How are you going to protect my privacy?

  • Being a registered commercial business, we are bound to the highest professional standards with respect to your privacy.
  • We maintain customer anonymity at all times. Any “before” and “after” pictures will only be taken and published with your prior consent.
  • A service agreement containing a confidentiality clause is signed by both parties prior starting any work.

How do I get started?

  • Take a look at our offered services and you can also check out our Instagram and Facebook page for inspiration.
  • We offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your needs and discuss what your objective is, as well as your desired timeline. On this basis, we will prepare a personalised offer, which we will present to you.

Can my kids/other family members be there while we organise?

Of course, your family is welcome to participate. It would be a great opportunity for them to also get involved and learn how to stay organised.

Can I gift your service to my partner/friend/parent?

We would be honoured if you recommended us; however, since this is a very personal journey, it would be advisable that the recipient of the gift is open to working with a professional organiser.

Am I supposed to purchase different organising products such as containers/boxes?

It really depends on what your goals are for the project. This is something we can discuss together during the initial consultation and recommend solutions which match your space and needs. In line with our mission of sustainability, we believe that many household items you already own can be upcycled/repurposed to serve as smart storage solutions.

Is cleaning included in the service?

Typically no, but we are happy to recommend and arrange a cleaning service for you.

Do you make arrangements to take away donations and unwanted items? If so, do you charge an additional fee for this service?

Yes, we can arrange for your unwanted items to be donated, sold or recycled. Additional fees may apply.
