Clutter builds slowly and once it’s built, it begins to take over your home, your life, and your interior design. Your favourite furniture pieces are buried, leaving you without the interior design style you’ve worked so hard for. So how can you keep your home clutter free? There are a few tips you can follow to limit the clutter build up in your home.
De-Clutter Your Home
The first and most important thing a homeowner can do to keep their home clutter-free is simply to purge, and purge often. We seem to accumulate stuff over time whether we’d like to or not, and every so often all that stuff needs to be purged to rid ourselves of what is unnecessary and put away what may be needed later. While spring cleaning is always popular, choosing a time to clean and purge your home of all that clutter for every season is much better. Purging your clutter 4 times per year is a great way to keep your clutter situation under control.
So, you’ve purged the clutter, and you’re still left with clutter – so, what now? Well, incorporating storage into your home interior design is your next best bet. Attractive storage allows a place for this necessary clutter to go while still adding to the style of your home. There are furniture pieces for any area of the home that can be used for storage, like the Plantation Buffet for the dining room, Stockton Mirrored Cabinet for the living room, or the Serena Home Office Desk for the office.
Never Live In Clutter Again
Getting into the habit of always putting things away is also a great thing to adopt. It’s easy to allow things to pile up. But this will quickly turn into a job that seems a bit too large to complete. It will wind up getting put off until it becomes a big problem. By sorting and always putting things away, keeping the clutter at bay is a far smaller daily task.
Interior design is never complimented by clutter, and clutter has a way of taking hold without allowing you to realize it. Clutter is a distant memory if you simply have proper storage, frequent purges, and put everything away.
