With the new year just getting started, many of our resolutions involve getting organized or starting the year off right with a deep cleaning. After all, it seems like even with ritual New Year cleaning, spring cleaning, and the annual fall deep-clean, our homes still seem cluttered only months later! With creative storage solutions, new perspectives on how to keep your clutter, and the expertise of a professional cleaning service, we have just the tips you need. Read on for just a few creative ways to de-clutter your home this month.
While you can’t always create extra storage space in your home, you may be able to find another problem in your home that you can creatively conceal with a storage solution. Consider an eyesore or utility you’d rather not see every day, like a hose reel outdoors, and construct a cabinet around it. This creates extra space to functionally store your clutter while improving the overall look of your home!
Make the Most of Wall Space with Pegboards
A growing trend in home design is the use of wall storage. Pegboards aren’t just for the garage anymore–try putting up some pegboard in the kitchen for a creative wall focus that showcases your cookware while keeping the cupboards clear of stubborn clutter. This will also help you locate your pots, pans, and utensils more easily than digging blindly through drawers and cabinets. Hanging cookware on pegboard is a great way to keep your kitchen cleaner this winter.
Think About Presentation
It may be helpful to reconsider your definition of “clutter.” After all, you may have tossed all the things you don’t need through the year only to find that clutter still finds its way all over your home. But it may not be about the amount of clutter you have–think about presentation. If you have collections of objects, such as cameras or antique bottles, they don’t have to take up drawer space. Try curating these objects on shelves to add creative touches to your home while storing your clutter.
Use Every Inch of Space
If you’re looking for great DIY storage solutions, try pull-out shelving that makes the most of small or oddly-shaped spaces in your home. The gap between the fridge and wall may just be one of those overlooked spaces when it comes to cleaning, but with a thin, pull-out shelf, you can creatively store spices and cooking ingredients and waste no space.
