Do you really think that every corner of your home is used efficiently? That is rarely the case. In fact, households and offices have so much space that you cannot possibly use it on a practical level. Instead, we clutter it up and use it as just another storage option without any though over alternative uses. Some people just never tap into their imagination as it is simply easier to heap up the unused items and ignore them for the time being, eventually letting a house clearance service take care of them anyway. But then, you have some pretty good places where you can thrive. Let’s take a look at the top five of those:
The Garden Shed
Yes, the garden shed must have had a purpose once upon a time, when you built it or when you saw it when buying the house with the amazing garden. That purpose, however, has long since faded, swallowed up by the busy daily life you lead. So now the shed is probably just another storage room, right? Well, a good shed clearance and a bit of repurposing will fix that in no time! Just think about something you want to do as a hobby – if you are a sculptor or a mechanic, you won’t even have to think too long – and make the shed the workplace you have always wanted.
Quick, name three purposes for the cupboard. If your answers were: a) to keep old stuff in, b) to stash Christmas presents in, and c) to keep Harry Potter in, then you are sort of wasting it. Cupboards are all about organisation and sorting out items so that you can make their finding easier. If you open yours and if you are assaulted by items that are about to fall over your head or feet, then you are doing something wrong. Empty the cupboard and then bring some order to that chaos.
Have you ever glanced at your desk at a random time and thought, “How do I work here?” That might be because your desk is filled with all sorts of papers and folders and other things-to-do at any one time. And how do you do them if the entire desk is taken up by everything all at once? Exactly, you don’t. There is one rule about office work – the desk is for the current assignment. If you do your office clearance right and find a place for everything outside of the desk, then you will then have a clean workplace which to use. The less the clutter there, the more efficient you will be at your work.
That Messy Corner
Don’t ask which one. You know very well. It’s the one part of the room or the office which you have entirely neglected and is now full of stashed items. It’s usually where you keep old furniture, your kid’s toys, or the least looked at decorations at home. It is the place which can be a potential reading nook, a place to put a comfy bed for guests, or a playing corner for the kids so that you don’t have to step on their LEGOs all day long. It is so much more than you give it credit for, but without first clearing it up and thinking about it, you might never know.
What is the first thing you think about when a person mentions ‘attic’? Exactly, another place for more stuff. But think about it – it is an entirely separate room. It can literally be anything you want it to be. It can be another guest room, it can be a playroom, it can be a gameroom, it can be your new kitchen. The options are limited only by your imagination and one efficient loft clearance away.
Think about every single space in the house or at the workplace and you will see that you have so much of it. Are you using it all in a proper manner? Well, think about it and reimagine everything so that you get the fullest potential for every corner of the house and office.
