The secrets of a well organized home
A tidy and well organized home is not only better looking, but also more comfortable and also more functional. As I’m sure we all do at some point, you surely complained about the insufficient storage space and things that look out of place.
First of all, you need to acknowledge the fact that we are living in a consumer society in which we are all tempted to grab as many thing as we can, some of which we never actually use. We are, somehow, hoarders. These useless things are primarily responsible for the mess and clutter in your house. It is time to go through them, sort the ones that are in good condition and donate them. The other can be recycled, if possible, or thrown away if all else failed. To be more efficient, take one room at the time, get out everything that fits the description above and do the actual sorting in another room. You’ll see how little stuff you are going to take back where they were.
A very important aspect is that in every house we can find a lot of trinkets, in different shapes and colors, that wouldn’t look very good if they were displayed on a shelf. The best option here is to store them in baskets, and store the baskets on the shelves. There you have it, it all looks good and orderly now.
Of course, these are not singular ideas for a more pleasant and tidy home. While these are small and simple approaches, you can go even deeper and start analyzing your furniture. Especially if you live in a small apartment, furniture that’s from the same range will give an unitary and neat aspect. For instance, if you chose to place metallic shelves in the living room, you should “repeat” them in other rooms as well.
