Keeping Your Home Neat - A systematic Approach

A cluttered and messy home may negatively impact your lifestyle and ability to concentrate.

Its not a stretch to say that many homeowners love a clean and tidy home. However, it’s something a lot of people struggle with. There are some obvious things you can do like using furniture that doubles up as storage like our outdoor sofa that we built but there are a few more things you can do to organize your home, too.

1. Declutter

So, how do you go about decluttering your home and deciding what to keep and what to get rid of? There are various really well-known methods of decluttering and, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past years, you will definitely have heard of some of them like the KonMari method or the Sweedish Death Cleaning method.

In summary, if you really want to keep it, then keep it. Decluttering is meant to make you feel happy, calm and more relaxed – don’t let it stress you!

2. Boxes are your friend

Keeping your things in crates and boxes is the best way to keep what you decide to keep organized by category. We have a box for medical supplies, a box for shampoos, shower gels and other bathroom necessity replacements, and a box for cables.

Keeping things grouped together helps you find things much more easily but there’s also one rule we have when it comes to storing things in boxes that really help us minimise the amount of stuff we have, too.

Besides boxes, using cable ties to tie your cables, and hide them in boxes would be the best combination for a friendly charging station.

3. Label things

When you box everything in the attempt to keep things neat, you will need to label them to save yourself the hassle of opening each one until you find what you need.

Labelling may sound like something you’d only do in primary school, but it’s actually useful for home organisation!

And the labels aren’t just limited to names. In fact, it can be used to provide other useful information as well, like expiry dates!

4. Go vertical

Being able to use the whole wall to sort and organize things make it so much easier to keep your house floor clean. Additional storage isn’t the only thing that can go vertical though. You could incorporate a hanging clothes drying rack in your utility area to hang things from the ceiling instead of using up valuable floor space and you can even hang your plants vertical, too.
