No one enjoys guests beholding a messy home. Don’t let appearances deceive you. You don’t need to hire a maid to keep your house tidy and organized. Storing things in the right way can make all the difference.
Ready to tackle tidying a home closet? You’re not alone.
You may have been emailing friends and family, asking for home organization ideas. Here’s what we did to rescue our home from clutter and how you can too!
1. Purging Unused Items
An effective way to get home organized is to purge unused items that you no longer need. Collect all of the items lying around and sort them into donate, toss, and keep piles.
2. Establish a Trash Zone
Establish a “trash zone” by having several trash bins around the home so that those items can be thrown away most quickly. Doing this encourages a cleaner environment.
3. Maximizing Space
Maximizing space is key when it comes to home organization. To that end, look for pieces of furniture that can serve multiple functions; for instance, an ottoman can provide seating and also serve as extra storage.
4. Use Baskets
Using baskets can be a great way to add a sense of tidiness and organization to any home. Baskets come in all shapes, sizes, and colors and can be used to store items such as blankets and magazines neatly.
5. Get Wall Storage
One of the most helpful home storage ideas is getting wall storage. It is a great way to organize your belongings and keep them in a place where they can be neat and tidy.
You can hang shelves on your walls to hold items such as books, folders, and magazines.
6. Utilizing Storage Bins
Utilizing storage bins is great for storing items such as craft supplies, small toys, books, cleaning supplies, and office materials. You can organize the bin according to use or color in order to further maximize your space and get a neater look.
7. Utilize Equipment Storage Cabinet
An equipment storage cabinet is designed to help organize and store various items such as tools, craft supplies, books, etc. They come with shelves, drawers, racks, and hooks, so you can conveniently store different items.
8. Labelling Each Storage
Labeling items within each storage unit ensures that our items are always within reach when we need them and that our storage spaces remain as tidy as possible.
9. Incorporate a Cleaning Routine
Dedicate one day a week as your “cleaning day” to focus on deep cleaning tasks such as vacuuming, dusting, disinfecting, mopping, and even scrubbing.
10. Re-Designating Room
If a room isn’t functioning properly, it could become overcrowded with things that should be disposed of in other rooms. Rearranging furniture and thinking of how a room can be used to its fullest potential can go a long way.
Creating zones in areas is a great idea, designating one area as the homework zone and another as the relaxation zone.
