It’s almost time for a new year and with that most of us look to make changes in our lives. One such place where small changes can be made to make a huge difference is the home.
Having a cluttered home can make living in your home more stressful than it needs to be, so today we will be looking at some of the best ways you can organise your home this year and we will be starting with the kitchen and the bathroom.
From the kitchen to the bathroom there are handy storage hacks that can make your home more practical and enjoyable to live in, if you find yourself stressed because you can’t find where you left your car keys or wallet when in the house this is the article for you.
When organising your home you may think of it being a big challenge that you haven’t got time for but that doesn’t have to be the case. Organising your home can be simply putting items into one spot so you always know where they are.
The best way of organising your home is to put like-for-like items together so each item in your home always has a place and you will always remember where they are. You should do this by type of item and how often you use them too. There’s no point in storing items in the back of the cupboard if you use them daily.
The kitchen is often the heart of the home so having a messy kitchen can destroy your social life. Good news though the kitchen can be easy to organise. Organising the kitchen can be as simple as storing items in the kitchen where they get used the most.
Storing your kitchen utensils where they get used not only does it make the kitchen more practical when cooking, but it also helps with remembering where everything goes. In the kitchen, you should keep your most used appliances out too. Your kettle, toaster, coffee machine, mixer and whatever else you may have in your kitchen that you frequently use should be kept on the top of your kitchen countertop.
Other kitchen gadgets and items you don’t use as often can be stored in your cupboards and brought out when you need them. Keeping them off your work surfaces gives you more room and space in the kitchen making it less cluttered.
The bathroom is one of the most used rooms in the home too and because of this, it can easily be cluttered. Bathrooms should be a place where you can go to relax and wind down for the day but in most family homes the clutter in the bathroom makes it less than ideal.
With the bathroom, you can once again use the above tips to keep your room clutter-free. Storing items you use at the front of your cabinets while storing items you don’t use as much at the back is a great way of keeping your sanity when organising your bathroom.
You can also use the like-for-like tip we discussed earlier on in this article so that you know where everything goes and where they are located when you need to find something.
The bathroom is a room that can look messy with a few things out of place so having storage in the bathroom will help keep the room looking cleaner for longer. You can add storage in a variety of ways including bathroom mirrors with cabinets, towel rails, ottomans and under-sink storage.
The more storage you can add to your bathroom the less cluttered it is going to look.
As the kitchen and the bathroom are some of the most used rooms in the home, keeping them clutter-free is going to help you enjoy your living space more. With some homes even using the tips above isn’t going to be enough and eventually, you will need to move homes or invest in a storage unit.
