Clutter can come in various ways and forms and how you manage it actually affects how you manage your time and the space around the house. Both are equally important in today’s tumultuous world and since house clearance is ever the less important activity to do, your possessions do get in the way quite a lot. Avoiding clutter is the key to deal with all the trouble that time restraints and space requirements will assault you with. One way to deal with it – if you are not into clearance services, or you would rather not do the easy way out with home clearance – is by using home storage options.
Proper Kitchen Storage for Easy Cooking
The right tools are the way to go with kitchens. All you need beside the usual drawers (which apparently don’t work if you still have problems with clutter) are some racks and extra containers. Use racks for jars and bottles, and add shelves to the walls for cookbooks, cutlery, and utensils. Add more stands even, keep them next to the wall, and keep the centre part of the kitchen clear so that you can have an easy time going around the island when cooking or cleaning. Tupperware is also a good option since it is a container and you can use it to store other items inside.
Smaller Bathroom Issues with More Storage
All you need is one word: étagère. A hard, but fun word to utter, also a very useful tool for the bathroom. An étagère will fit everything you need to be fit in the bathroom. Soaps, shampoos, extra towels, bathrobes, dental equipment – depending on the size, you can have it all, and then have the whole other part of the bathroom all for yourself and none of the clutter. This huge organizer does bring comfort to the home and saves you the time to dodge other storage options.
Grander Space for the Grander Living Room
The living room is usually the part of the house that suffers the most from clutter. That is where the daily activities usually go, that is where most people do their work if they have no study, that is where the kids play. All that comes together into a huge amalgam of messes that would trip up even the best of the obstacle racers. Bookcases are the storage option you want there. They have plenty of shelves, they will fit books, toys, decorations, folders, textbooks, notebooks, and really everything else that you might have waiting to find a resting place. Get a console station for the TV and organise video game consoles, audio devices, CDs, DVDs, and so on. No more tripping, no more dodging – everything will finally have a place.
DIY Solutions for More Freedom
If you are low on cash and you have no option to call clearance services or provide all the above mentioned storage solutions, then you can just make something up yourself. DIY solutions are the new trend and many people dabble into turning useless items into helpful tools. A simple box from a FedEx package can turn into a container for notepads and pens and pencils. Hangers can be just as useful for outside clothes as they can be for the wardrobe if you have no coatrack. Old garden tools can be easily repurposed and affixed to walls to hold more shelves or be themselves the holders. The options for DIY are truly limited only by your imagination.
Space savers will help you with the battle against clutter. When it is too much for you to do loft clearance, simply think how you can manage rather than discard items. Then you will have a better time feeling free at home.
