3. Sort and organise drawer space
Drawers are hidden caverns of clutter, rubbish and unused items. Because drawers are closed unless you need to retrieve something, they require regular sorting to remain clean and organised. Ensure you are only keeping important items that are relevant to the function of the room the drawers are in.
In kitchen drawers, for example, you might have cutlery, hand towels, dishwashing supplies, and other items for cooking and dining. If all the items either relate to or are used during cooking and dining, then your kitchen drawer space is organised. The same rationale can be used in regard to other rooms in your home.
4. Allow adequate shelving and storage space for belongings, essential items and decor
We understand that a lot of the items you have in your home are meaningful to you and you don’t want to part with them. That is why having enough shelving and storage space is vital to ensure your home remains organised.
Shelving should be used for items that you need to frequently access or that you’d like to display, while storage spaces like cupboards are for the things you don’t always need, or want to protect from environmental conditions such as light and dust.
Shelving and storage spaces can elevate your room design if chosen thoughtfully. Opt for colours that match the overall aesthetic, or if you are looking for a bold addition to a room, consider a bright or darker shade to create an effective contrast.
Keep in mind that shelving also needs to be regularly cleaned, and this can be the perfect opportunity to reorganise what they hold. Clear away not only the dust, but also the clutter!
