Organizing your home can bring about one of the best feelings in the world. Clutter can easily build up if you’re not careful, and it can significantly impact your mood and quality of life.
Whether you are looking to create more space, add value to your home, improve your mood, or prepare to have a stress free house move, then you are in the right place. This article will look at some of the best tips to help you get started with organizing your home.
Sometimes just going for it works, and if so, that’s great. But if you have a large house or a lot of organizing to do, then planning might be the best and most important first step for you to take to stay focused and motivated. You can plan as much or as little as you prefer, but at the very least, start by planning which rooms you are going to tackle, when you are going to tackle them, and how long for. Avoid trying to organize their entire house in one day, as this will potentially cause you to rush and not complete it to a good standard.
#2 Fully commit
How many times have you gone to organize something, declutter or clean out a room and then you end up spending several hours pulling everything out and then just put it all back in the same place? You are not alone. This is a very common practice, but you should try to avoid it at all costs. Remind yourself the reason why you want, and need to organize your home, stick to the plan, and fully commit to the tasks. To organize, you may need to be resilient and throw away some items. Fully commit by being honest. Some of the items lying around, do they serve a purpose? Do you use it, or love it? Or should you get rid of it?
#3 Utilize clever storage solutions
Organizing doesn’t always mean you have to throw everything away if it is not necessary to do so. Although there may be an aspect of decluttering, it is also a chance to find new places for items you have lying around, cluttering the room. One of the best ways is to upgrade your furniture, or upcycle and get creative with what you have, to create clever storage solutions. There is plenty of standard and unique options to choose from for each room, for example, small changes such as compartmentalizing the drawers with organizers in your kitchen and bedrooms, hang a pot rail in the kitchen, add risers into your shelves and cabinets to double the number of items you can fit in there, file fold clothes and towels upright, to bigger changes such as turning your headboard into a storage space or hang shelves along the perimeter of a room.
It might take some time, especially if you wish to implement some of the bigger storage solutions to keep your items organised for good. Just know that there is never one right answer, only trial, and error until you find what works for your home.
