The average British person has 3,370 cubic feet of in their home. That might sound like a lot, but it fills up fast, so use the tips in this quick and easy guide to declutter your home for 2016.
Add Drawers and Hooks to Your Bathroom
Keeping your bathroom free of clutter can usually be accomplished best by adding more hanging space. After all, it’s the room where towels, clothes, and robes tend to get dumped on the floor. Try adding a double-hook to get twice the bang for your buck, then make a mental note to hang up everything before you leave the room. This practice comes with the additional benefit of letting everything dry a lot faster.
Make Your Kitchen Functional
The kitchen really is the heart of your home. It’s where you eat, where you sit with family members, and where you prepare each meal. With that in mind, make sure you keep your kitchen clutter-free by keeping it functional as possible. Of all rooms in the house, this one is almost certainly the hardest to keep tidy, so make sure everything has its place.
Buy a Chest for Your Bedroom
Bedroom clutter – unless you happen to be a teenager – isn’t usually caused by lots of smaller items. Instead, you’ll have to find a place to put items of clothing, shoes, and possibly a spare blanket. Since this is the case, it makes sense to buy one large storage item instead of several smaller ones, and a chest is a great option. You can put on at the end of your bed to provide both decoration and a handy nook for all your bedroom bits and bobs.
Declutter the DVDs and CDs in Your Living Room
In the living room, it’s likely to be items such as DVDs and CDs that are cluttering up the room. Luckily, you can keep them all organised inside the individual plastic pockets of a storage folder. This provides a smaller and smarter solution to keeping each disk inside the large, bulky box that it came in.
These tips won’t let you completely de-clutter your house, but you can use them to make a start on each of your main rooms.
