As some people say, your home reflects who you are. From the structure, style, colors, textures, pieces of furniture, and decor that your is within your home reflects your personality and sometimes even your character.
Everyone wants a clean, organized and clutter-free home. It makes your homes reveal their beauty from inside out. We may have rooms or areas in our room that needs some love and attention, and by that, we mean decluttering.
If you are looking for ways to declutter your home, whether you are looking into cleaning it for your comfort or you’re preparing for staging before selling your home, here are helpful tips on how to declutter your home!
1. Tidy Up
Begin from making your bed. Yes, it may be a simple task but cleaning and organizing your home starts once you wake up and get out of your bed. After your morning routine, you might want to check on your nightstand if you got some items you won’t be needing from it, remove it. Remember the KonMari method by Marie Kondo? If it doesn’t spark joy, remove it, if it does, keep it.
2. Keep What You Need
Cleaning may be tough when you have a lot of things in your room or house. Get a pen and some paper, open your notes or keep some of these questions in mind to help you easily declutter:
Does this belong in the...specific room such as the bedroom, living room, kitchen
Will I be able to use this in the next few months or years?
Do I really need it?
Is it necessary for my home?
Am I going to use it?
Does this item have a significance?
3. Sort Your Items
Now you’re putting away some stuff, sort them to easily identify what needs to be sold, donated, or kept! It will make things easier when you have boxes that are labeled to where your items are going. This trick is also really helpful when it comes to preparing for moving to your new home.
4. Invest in the Right Furniture
Are you living in an apartment or condo with minimal space? Maximize your space with space-saving furniture. Some examples of space-saving furniture are beds with a pull-out drawer, an ottoman with storage, a sofa bed, or extendable tables. These are great for small spaces. These types of furniture will help lessen clutter because of the extra storage they provide for your essentials.
5. Reduce the Paper Trail
We all have that space or area in our homes that are solely for paper stuff such as documents, receipts, mail, and bills. Reduce the stack of paper by sorting them out then throwing or recycling them. Get an organizer and place the documents onto their respective places. If some of it doesn’t matter anymore, it’s time to get rid of it and you’ll be surprised how much space you have left after cleaning up the paper trail.
