4 Hacks For A Neater HouseMaintenance & Repair
4 minutes read
Sometimes you sit in the middle of your room feeling like it looks too cluttered for your liking, yet you can't seem to find anything to throw out. Everything seems important enough to want to keep, but there's barely enough space to move around.
We've thought of four simple steps you could take to declutter, getting rid of some items you probably never thought to abandon before, but may seem like a great idea right now.
1. Idle Furniture
Sometimes we purchase furniture we don't quite use, and most times we've noticed they turn out to be left untouched in a corner. While shopping for furniture these seemed to make great additions for a specific area of your room, but after time you realize they don't quite have any practical purposes.
Some people even go as far as to set up a cozy corner complete with books and chairs, but in time realize they could use the space to store so much more. If you find yourself in this particular situation, we'd suggest either moving the furniture into an area with more free space, or simply tossing them out.
2. Old Technology
Technology advances at lightning speed, and new devices turn up on the market all the time. Along the way you may begin finding yourself constantly upgrading the technological systems in your home, without getting rid of the old ones deciding to keep them as spares.
Some people have old televisions kept in their storerooms, or even multiple desktops filling up their workspaces. Although it's a good contingency plan to have a spare, most of the time it's just a space waster.
We suggest selling these to second hand appliance stores instead, so your home starts to look a little less cluttered.
3. Outdated Magazines & Documents
Many times we find ourselves keeping old magazines and documents, sometimes even running out of space to store them. They're a hassle to sort through and get rid of, but in order to declutter it's a must to begin the tedious process.
Not only do throwing these unnecessary items out help declutter your home, they could be used to help the environment by being recycled. Perhaps take a whole day off during the weekend, and slowly go through your magazine and document piles, keeping only what's applicable and throwing out the rest.
4. Excessive Knick Knacks
It's true the smaller items don't take up too much space, but when too many of them are added to your home it makes the space look claustrophobic. Scan your surroundings and make a list of what seems to be unnecessary, and by that we mean they have no practical or decorative value.
If they can't be used for practical reasons and their designs don't have much impact on the aesthetic of your home, we'd say throw them out. Some examples include throw pillows and photo frames, which people tend to love buying a huge amount of. Cute the stash by half if you feel like you own an overwhelming number of these knick knacks to make your house look cleaner and bigger.
