Does Your Home Feel Cluttered and Messy? Storage Tips To Help You Get Organised

23:30

With a busy home and children, it can often feel like there isn’t room for everything we have at home. Rooms can often feel cluttered when there isn’t enough storage space. And it never looks good when there are things all over the floor. So I have been thinking about ways that I can improve the storage in our home. A lot of the things we can’t just throw out. Not yet anyway. So what do you do when you need all of these things stored at home? Here are a few ideas to help you.

Improve the Wasted Space in Your Wardrobe

No matter what we have in our wardrobes, there is always a little bit of wasted space. It might be that we just have one long wardrobe. That is great for hanging things like dresses, but not so great when we have lots of shorter things. It just creates a mass of wasted space. You can put things in your wardrobe to help, though. How about adding in a shoe rack at the bottom of your wardrobe? It can help to keep your shoes organised if needed. You could even fold tops or trousers and store them on there if they don’t need to necessarily be hung up.

Get Creative With Normal Household Items

It can fun to think outside the box a bit when it comes to storage. You don’t need to spend lots of money on fancy boxes. But just use some things that you have around the house. If you do a lot of crafts, could you organise your craft things better, for example? It could be using a kitchen roll or toilet roll freestanding holder, for example. Then you can just put the tape or ribbon rolls on there. It keeps it all in one place and means that you don’t have to have things all over your desk or scattered around in a box.

Use Loft Space

If you live somewhere that does have loft space, make sure that you are using it wisely. It can be handy to store things like Christmas decorations or boxes of things that you want to hold onto. If the loft space isn’t in a great state, then setting aside some time to make it useable is a really good idea. It could mean laying down some boards or getting a proper ladder to have easier access. If you’re not sure about doing it, then you could always get a professional in. If you find you have lots that you need to store up there, or you don’t have a loft, you could always look into using a local self storage unit, for instance.

Use Shelving

I often find that when things are off the floor, it helps to create a space that feels much less cluttered. So if you find that you have boxes and boxes on the floor, as well as furniture, how about putting some things at a different height? Shelving can make a massive difference to how your rooms can look, and leave other surfaces clutter-free.
