How to organise other rooms in your home

December 22, 2022 |

Whether it’s the laundry room, the home office or the garage all the rooms in our home can become a haven for junk. Today we will be looking at some of the best ways we can declutter and organise other rooms in the home.

Find a space for your laundry

Clean or dirty clothes scattered around the room are going to make any home look messy. Organising your clothes so they aren’t left around the house and having a place in the home is going to make your life much easier and less stressful.

It’s also going to make rooms like your bathroom, kitchen and bedroom less cluttered too.

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t got a utility room in your home because you can make a designated space where your clothes can go. This designated space could be anywhere from a closet or garage.

When you decide on the best place to do your laundry you will then want to organise it so that everything you need is within touching distance. As always keep your most used items close and less used items can be stored away until needed, this cuts down on clutter and it’s also practical.

When you have a space for your laundry you should then keep all your worn clothes here ready for washing and all your freshly washed and dried clothes should also be here.

Organising your garage

Let’s face it, the garage is the ultimate room for storing clutter and forgetting about it. While the garage is a versatile room, dumping your junk in here and forgetting it isn’t using your garage to its full potential.

If you want to make the most out of your garage you are going to need shelving and storage boxes.

When you have the above you will need to store items like for like in your garage so they are easier to find. For example, keep your tools together, keep your gardening equipment together and even keep your children’s toys together. This way if you are looking for something in your garage it is easier to find.

To be even more organised in your garage you should buy some clear storage containers and a marker pen. Mark each box explaining what’s inside there and then put them on the shelves in your garage.

Once again if you find yourself using items more than others be sure to store like-for-like items in these boxes. There is no point storing items you use all the time in the same boxes as items you don’t, it’s not practical and brings you stress.

Organising your home office.

Many of us have had to work from home over the last few years so more clutter has been added to our homes without us having much say in it. If you find your home cluttered with paperwork or files and folders then you have a few options.

Firstly you could purchase a filing cabinet and put all of your documents out of sight into one, but for most people having an ugly cabinet in their front room isn’t something they want. On the other hand, you could go digital and have your documents stored on your computer system.

There are many companies out there that can do this for a small fee. You could also invest in a small storage unit.  Storage units are a good choice for work-related documents as they are secure and out of the way and you don’t have to worry about one of your family members deleting or damaging an important work document.

Final thoughts

The rooms mentioned above are essential in the home and if you don’t take the time to keep them organised then you will bring unneeded stress upon yourself.

If you do find you don’t have enough room in your home after these changes and you still want to be more organised you should consider hiring a storage unit.
