No matter how well you clean your home, you will not give it that homely and sophisticated feel, if you still lack some basic home organizing skills. The state of your home might affect your mood and ability to relax after a long day. A cluttered and disorganized house creates an atmosphere of restlessness, stress, and business. These tips will start you off for a perfectly organized house.
DO NOT RUSH TO GET BINS AND BOXES
Tackle the root problem first. When most people make a decision to organize their homes, the first decision is to decide which boxes and bins will be required to organize the stuff. Decide on the stuff that you need to ditch, evaluate your routine and confront the emotional issues that fuel the cluttering. With that in mind, you can know what you frequently use, things that have sentimental value and the best time to arrange the house.
A “RIGHT AWAY” BIN FOR YOUR LAUNDRY
There are some things that you must use on a daily basis or at least a couple of times in a week. To avoid turning the house upside down every time you are getting that gym wear, come up with a laundry bin that is easily accessible for all the things needed for the routine.
VERTICAL STORAGE IS SIMPLY THE BEST
When you are out of space, always look up. It leaves the surface looking cleaning organized and spacious because there is less stuff near the floor.
MAKE USE OF DOORMATS
Have two doormats. Place one inside and another one outside. It will give you a chance to trap all the dirt coming into your house.
DEAL WITH CLUTTER ON A DAILY BASIS
Make a home for everything in your home including the clutter. Magazines, newspapers, jackets, briefcases and toys need a designate place in the house. It is not possible to live without clutter; we just need to know where to keep things that are not in use. That way they do not sprawl all over the house. Before you purchase something new, find it a home first within the house.
If you now feel that you are in the right place in terms of an organized home, come up with rules to maintain this balance. Come up with golden rules that must be followed by everyone in the house. For instance, you can have rules such as: If you finish it, replace it; if you get it out, put it away; if it’s garbage, trash it, and so on.
Home organization requires organization and time management skills. Find the right balance for your home, and when you do, design rules to maintain an organized home.
