Is your home starting to look like it should be featured on A&E’s TV show Hoarders and less like the home of your dreams? Let’s make clutter a thing of the past. While you might have your reasons for keeping the collage you made in grade school, maybe it’s best to store it away and make room for something fresh and modern.
At BTR home, we want you to enjoy your abode as much as possible. That’s why from January 14-20 we’re featuring events that allow you to get organized in style.
5 ways to tidy up your space:
Make friends with storage solutions
If you really don’t want to part with old souvenirs, trinkets, or presents, you can store them away in these functional storage solutions. You can also use them to organize your clothes, shoes, accessories, and so much more. A bonus? You’ll find what you’re looking for that much faster.
Start with one section at a time
Instead of saying “I’m going to organize my entire house in one day,” start with smaller sections. Maybe today you’ll redo your closet (and get rid of clothes you haven’t worn since 2003) and tomorrow can be laundry room day. Getting organized doesn’t have to be daunting. You can do it!
Try a minimalistic approach
There’s no reason for everything you own to be put on display. Simply showcase what you really want shown (picture frames, artwork, etc) and store away the rest. Invest in quality décor that you’ll keep for years to come. You’ll be amazed at how much more inviting your home will be.
Transform your office space
Whether you always work from home or only from time to time, you need your home office to be tidy. Find all the files, folders, and items you need to get work done. There’s nothing more unsightly (or overwhelming) than a table stacked with papers. Add a dash of personality with stylish bookends and wall clocks.
At the end of the day, your home (aside from keeping a roof on your head) is a reflection of your style and personality. If it’s not currently projecting the image you want, there’s no better time than now to make some changes.
