No matter the size of the house or garden, storage space seems to be always lacking! Partly psychological, it is true that things keep accumulating all the time. Nothing that reaches the home seems to be leaving, while regular cleaning preferably by the professionals would show the way. Take the house one room at a time, and then the garage and the attic, the basement and the patio. Examine the wardrobe thoroughly and often find plenty to be got rid of.
The secret is to install more storage spaces and some tricks will help create a larger dimension of the room if you feel overwhelmed by clutter. Some basic strategies and techniques would help to get better organized and lots of things and clothes, books and papers would have to go. Be ruthless in deciding what to hang on to and what to sacrifice!
Discover vertical storage spaces
While much depends upon the dimensions of the residence, one pretty facility would apply even to congested homes. The four walls that surround are hardly put to use in homes while shops and malls stack up everything right up to the ceiling. The home will certainly not install so many shelves, but a part of the wall can be used very profitably. Set up a series of shelves, some built for the corners. Whether wooden or synthetic, they are hardly costly and may be dismantled if they are no longer required. Esthetically too, they would add much to the charisma.
Under the staircase and in the attic and garage too, you would discover ample storage space to put sets of drawers or open shelves, hang bamboo baskets or plastic clothes containers. Shopping online brings the best bargains and the variety on offer may be irresistible. However, caution is advised while shopping online and the COD seems to be the best bet where money transactions are concerned with the goods being checked before money is paid.
Vertical solutions for kitchen and bathroom, and utility spaces
Getting better organized would involve running a little office with a table, chair and internet and printing facilities, for self and others. When lighting, ventilation and air-conditioning are good, life feels so much better. Neatness should become a matter of habit with cleaning up and arranging done on a weekly basis, perhaps, with roles and territories distributed to the family remembers, with incentives.
