ABOUT ME

Hi! I'm Kira Ross and I am the Founder of Form and Function by Kira.

I was born and raised in the Greater Toronto Area after my parents immigrated from the Caribbean in the late 70's. Currently I call Durham Region home.


Armed with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and a major in Information Technology I started my career in 2005 as a Business Systems Analyst. In this role I transformed cluttered business requirements into streamlined processes using technology and automation.

When my career pivoted in 2012, I took on the Commercial Real Estate industry by using my gifts of management, organization, and process improvement. My experience in managing a diverse campus of buildings to running a province-wide planning program has sharpened my eye for finding efficiencies and opportunities where others see obstacles.

I am a mother and a wife who believes everyone can live in a space that is pleasing to the senses and reflects the heart of those who live there. Creating an environment of elegance, form and function by decluttering, categorizing and organizing is why I created Form and Function by Kira. I am excited to streamline your lifestyle and create a space customized for how you use it.​

I sincerely believe form is found when space is made functional.

Creating Harmony in Your Home: Organization Solutions for Families in Durham Region, Ontario

March 01, 20244 min read

In the hustle and bustle of daily life, maintaining a sense of harmony and order in our homes can feel like a daunting task, especially for busy families in the vibrant community of Durham Region, Ontario. However, with the right organization solutions tailored to the unique needs of families, achieving a balanced and harmonious living space is within reach. In this blog post, we'll explore five essential areas of organization specifically designed to support busy families in Durham Region.


Streamlined Entryway


Streamlining Entryways and Mudrooms

Busy mornings often begin with chaos at the front door. By implementing organization solutions in entryways and mudrooms, parents can streamline the morning routine and set a positive tone for the day ahead. From designated storage for shoes and backpacks to hooks and baskets for easy access to essentials, creating an organized entryway ensures a smooth start to the day for the entire family.

Actionable Step:

Dedicate Saturday morning to decluttering your entryway. Invest in a shoe rack or wall-mounted organizers to keep footwear neatly stored. Hang hooks for backpacks, jackets, and keys, ensuring everything has a designated place.


Maximizing Kitchen Efficiency

The kitchen serves as the heart of the home, especially for busy parents in Durham Region. By maximizing kitchen efficiency through strategic organization solutions, families can simplify meal preparation and minimize stress during busy weeknights. From pantry organization to optimizing cabinet space and creating dedicated zones for meal prep, a well-organized kitchen facilitates smoother cooking experiences and encourages healthier eating habits.

Actionable Step:

Sunday meal prep sessions can be a game-changer. Take inventory of your pantry and fridge, then plan and prep meals for the upcoming week. Invest in stackable containers and label them for easy access to ingredients.

Establishing Functional Play and Activity Areas

Children thrive in environments that foster creativity and exploration. Busy parents can create harmony in their homes by establishing functional play and activity areas that cater to their children's interests and needs. Whether it's a designated playroom, a cozy reading nook, or an outdoor play space, organizing these areas with accessible storage solutions and clear boundaries enhances both playtime enjoyment and cleanup efficiency.

Actionable Step:

Saturday afternoon is the perfect time to declutter and organize your children's play area. Sort toys into bins or baskets and designate specific areas for different activities. Encourage your children to help tidy up at the end of each day.

Implementing Time-Saving Laundry Solutions

Laundry can quickly become a never-ending chore for busy parents. Implementing time-saving laundry solutions helps streamline this essential task and frees up valuable time for other priorities. From sorting hampers to organizing laundry supplies and establishing a routine for tackling loads efficiently, optimizing the laundry process contributes to a more balanced and harmonious home environment.

Actionable Step:

Dedicate Sunday evening to revamping your laundry routine. Set up separate hampers for lights, darks, and delicates to streamline sorting. Invest in a laundry sorter with labeled compartments to make the process more efficient.

Creating Relaxing and Clutter-Free Bedrooms

A restful sleep environment is essential for busy parents to recharge and rejuvenate. By creating relaxing and clutter-free bedrooms, you can promote better sleep quality and overall well-being. From decluttering surfaces to investing in storage solutions that maximize closet space, organizing bedrooms ensures a tranquil retreat where mothers can unwind and find solace at the end of each day.

Actionable Step:

Take some time on Sunday morning to declutter and organize your bedroom. Clear off nightstands and dressers, keeping only essential items. Invest in under-bed storage containers to maximize space and keep belongings out of sight.
