Five Ways to Declutter & Organize
Thought it may not seem like it, spring is right around the corner! Meaning now is as good a time as ever to get started on your spring cleaning. Organizing and decluttering can actually be fun if done right. I gathered some ideas for different parts of the home so you can start thinking about stylish ways to organize your home.
The open shelving trend is huge right now, and I can see why! While dust might be slightly irritating, open shelving like the one above is a way to show off all of your beautiful dinnerware, while the cupboards store the not-so-pretty pots and pans. Open shelving can be added to any wall, therefore adding more storage room than your kitchen already has. This chalkboard idea is pretty cute, too.
Matching boxes and paper filers are a beautiful way to store everything you pack into your home office. Documents can be properly stored and organized in the stand-up filers, while miscellaneous things like extra notebooks or pencils can be stuffed in the boxes. What’s especially nice about the above boxes (besides how great they look) is the place for labeling. This will rid you of any headaches when you’re looking for something specific!
A fantastic way to keep your bathroom organized is to add a free-standing open shelf like the one above. It takes up very little space but it has a lot of storage. If the shelves aren’t packed with towels, toilet paper and other necessities, feel free to dress it up like this one.
Vanities are inevitable for many women, even though they don’t always mesh well with the bedroom. A nice way to keep your jewelry organized is to display it beautifully, like the image above. Hanging necklaces on a frame like that almost look like a piece of art while being very functional at the same time.
Garages are one of the easiest places to let clutter up, but if you have storage units like the one above (which could be much smaller if you’re not blessed with this much space), you’ll have plenty of ways to organize. The magnetic strips hold tools and make them easy to find while the racks on the right hold the bigger tools. Shelving stores cleaning supplies and the drawers are where you can stash the uncategorized clutter.
Organizing and decluttering can be kind of stressful, but look at how great the reward is! Just take it one room at a time and next thing you know your home will be organized and beautiful.
