Clear the Clutter and Reclaim Your Space With These Tips

Clear the Clutter and Reclaim Your Space With These Tips, As every dad knows, as soon as kids enter the picture, your house suddenly feels very full. While your home may have felt perfectly spacious when you moved in as a couple, the arrival of kids can soon make you feel like you’re living in a shoe box. Considering they’re so small, kids certainly require a tonne of stuff. Toys, clothes, books, and baby equipment take up a huge amount of space in your home. So much so that you may soon be left feeling like your home is ready to burst at the seams.

With house prices now incredibly high, moving to a bigger home is not always a practical option. Plus, there’s always the worry that you will simply accumulate more stuff and fill up a bigger house, too. So, what is the solution to this serious clutter problem? Well, keeping it cluttered is obviously not an option. Cluttering not only makes your home feel smaller, but it also leaves it feeling disorganised and makes life more stressful than it needs to be. Keep reading to find tips that will help you to clear the clutter and reclaim your home once and for all:

Declutter the Smart Way

Do you ever find yourself starting to declutter, creating a pile of stuff you don’t know what to do with it, so simply leaving it where it is? Even when started with the best of intentions, many people find that their decluttering efforts fall flat soon after they begin. To prevent this, it’s wise to take a different approach.

Breaking down your decluttering tasks is a great way to prevent it from becoming too overwhelming. Rather than trying to declutter the whole house, focus on one room, or even one cupboard at a time. But always make sure that you do something decisive with every item you come across. For example, either tidying it away immediately, or donating it to charity rather than leaving it in a bin bag in the hallway!

Keep making this slow and steady progress and work your way around your home room-by-room. It may not be fun, but spending just an hour at a time on decluttering can make a big difference across a month.

Invest in Extra Storage

With houses and gardens seemingly becoming smaller, many people are short on storage space in their homes. This means you will need to think a little more creatively to store all the items you want to keep neatly. For seasonal items such as garden furniture and Christmas decorations, hiring a storage unit is the ideal solution to your space issues. This means that you don’t need to worry about these items cluttering up your home, but you will still be able to access them when needed.

Choosing clever furniture items that double up as storage can also be a help. For example, using an ottoman as a coffee table, or mid-sleeper beds with furniture underneath in the kids’ rooms.
