How to organise your home in a day – the ultimate guide to decluttering
They say a tidy home equals a tidy mind. Clearing away the clutter not only reduces our daily stress levels by creating a sense of calm and tranquillity, but it’s also a productive way to maintain an orderly home in the long run. Decluttering doesn’t have to be a mammoth task – follow our guide and take it one room at a time. We guarantee there’s nothing better than the feeling of satisfaction you’ll get once you’ve finished.
If you’re struggling for wardrobe space, the answer isn’t to cram your clothes in so tightly that they end up creased, or even damaged. Instead, divide your clothes into seasons and store away the clothes you don’t need. This is a great way of keeping your wardrobe organised and making sure your clothes have enough room to breathe. You never know – you might end up finding that jumper you’ve been missing hidden away at the back! Pack away the clothes you don’t need into our clever Vacuum Storage Tote Bags to save valuable storage space.
Hands up if your hallway can sometimes resemble a shoe shop? As the entrance to your home, you want your hallway to make a great first impression. It’s also often an area of the house where we have limited space, so it’s important to maximise the room and make use of efficient storage ideas. An extending and stackable Shoe Rack is a great choice to perfectly fit your space and neatly hold even more pairs of shoes – ideal for those with big families (or an uncontrollable shoe habit).
Kitchens can be a magnet for clutter. Keeping your surfaces clear from crockery, ingredients, small appliances and recipe books not only makes them much easier to clean, but it also gives you more space to perfect your culinary masterpieces. Create extra storage on worktops and in cupboards with the eco-friendly Lakeland Bamboo Range – with an Expandable Shelf Organiser, a versatile Three-Tier Corner Shelf and a clever Sliding Organiser to help you easily grab whatever you need without having to precariously juggle pots and pans.
We spend a lot of time in the living room. There’s no better feeling than putting your feet up after a long day at work, perhaps watching some TV or reading a book. The last thing you need is to walk into complete clutter chaos, with stray magazines, children’s toys, cushions or blankets cast around the room. Get organised with the help of handy storage baskets to clear away the clutter – the Tatay Baobab Storage range is both practical and pretty.
Having an organised bathroom isn’t just for aesthetics. Knowing exactly where to find everything means you’ll save time searching for that spare bottle of shampoo. Plus, it’s much easier to keep track of the items you have with a clutter-free cabinet – bathrooms are often full of endless numbers of the same product that we stock up on ‘just in case’. Keep your essentials neat, organised and right where you need them in an Over-Door Shower Caddy and make tripping over bottles and soaps in the shower a thing of the past.
