Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness; We Show You How

Clutter, every homeowner’s worst nightmare! It not only takes away our sense of comfort but also makes us feel sloppy. Clutter comes into existence due to a number of reasons such as poor cleaning habits, unwillingness to get rid of junk, lethargy and lack of time to name a few. Either way, clutter makes our homes untidy and unsafe to dwell in.

This blog will provide you with a few easy storage tips to help you declutter you home.

The first step to devise a strategy as systematic planning saves hours of tiresome labour. Decide on what you really want to achieve before you start. Settle on what you want in each room and where you put the stuff those belongings to other rooms.
Start small so that the rewards are quick. This will ensure that you are not disheartened and quit easily. New shelving, hooks and hamper systems can do wonders to declutter your laundry rooms and closets. This will help you arrange your belongings so that you can find them in an instant. Try and purchase furniture that has internal storage space. This will give you additional room to put things away. If you have heaps of junks lying around, decide on what you want to get rid of and what you want to keep. Selling some of it or donating it to the less fortunate are also good options.

The next step is to gather all the help you can from friends and family. They can not only
be trusted in your house with valuable belongs but will also help you get rid of all that redundant stuff that you are emotionally attached to. Hiring the services of a professional organizer can also make things easier. They can not only provide you with useful suggestions but also lend that professional edge to your efforts.

Innovative Storage Solutions for Your Home

All of us desire bigger homes, but this may not always be possible due to factors such high real estate prices and commuting problems. Fortunately there is a lot of usable space in all our homes that we fail to take advantage of. 
In this blog post, I will be talking about storage solutions and innovative techniques to create additional space in your homes.

The space under the staircase is a great place to store belongings that you don't use every
day. You can start by enclosing the area and installing a door for easy access. The next step is to add some shelves. You can also add lighting and a small desk or a pull out shelf as a desk area depending on how much room you have. The space can also be used to create a small play house for children, but make sure that the door can be opened from the inside for safety reasons.

A mini library is also a great way of putting this piece of space to better use. You can do this by lining the walls under the stairs with neat shelves to store all sizes of books and magazines. Add spotlights or angled floor lamps to illuminate the books as well as to provide reading light.

If this storage area is located near your kitchen or pantry, you can set up an area to store
all your oversized products that are too large for your kitchen cabinets. In this way, your kitchen supplies can be neatly stored and are more accessible.

A work space can also be easily set up in the free area under the stairs as you don’t need much storage space for a compact home office. Start by installing a desk or a fitted work surface to place a lap top or PC on. You may even fix shelves to the walls above the desk and install a telephone jack and power outlets for electronic equipment. Office equipment like answering machines, fax machines and printers can easily be set up as well.

It is definitely a shame to waste this valuable space so make sure to look up innovative storage tips and experiment with different ideas so as to put it to better use.
