The Quickstart Guide to Decluttering Your Home

Nothing can compare to that amazing feeling of coming home after a long day full of activities, may it be with school, work, or other important matters. But does coming home to a messy and chaotic house give the same level of comfort a tidy one has?

If you’re always on the go and can’t seem to find some time to do the necessary cleaning procedures at your home, then you should consider contacting a Melbourne house cleaning company to do everything for you. While their services can come in handy, you can also declutter your home through these simple steps.

1. Move Things Around

By simply moving things like furniture, shelves, and lamps around the house, not only do you get to have a new look for your home, you’ll also be surprised with the amount of space you actually have.

2. Throw Unnecessary Objects

Although adding accessories such as picture frames, flower vases, candles, or another side table contribute to your house’s aesthetic value, try to visualize your home without these things. If throwing or keeping them away isn’t possible, then consider moving it to an area with a bigger space.

3. Use Storage Boxes

If you always spend time looking for small items, like your house or car keys, having storage boxes would solve this particular problem. This can also be used for keeping remotes and other accessories lying around your house. Choose stylish compartments as well to maintain your home’s design and remember to put these at your home’s most visible spot.

Another thing for this item is to have large containers where huge items like books and magazines can be stored. These can also be used as mini chairs—considering they’re sturdy enough.

4. Remove Floor Accessories

Carpets, rugs, and other items used for the floor—although necessary, actually ruin a house’s aesthetic value by reducing its light. Instead, put them in areas where they are needed like by the door, in the kitchen, and in the bathroom.

5. Opt for Lighter Colors

When picking a color for your curtains, pillow cases, and other decorative items, keep in mind to opt for lighter hues to allow natural light come in. Furthermore, it can lighten up residents’ moods as well as these are relaxing to the eyes.

6. Donate/Sell Old Items

Old clothes, bags, shoes, children’s toys, furniture, and various home appliances—anything and everything found in your homes can be donated or sold, either through a garage sale or online. These activities allow you to give old items to those who are in need and even let you earn extra cash.

While these are just small and easy steps, know that these can significantly tidy up your home. So if you have some time to spare, instead of doing irrelevant things, do these six steps to ensure that you’ll be coming to a comfy and relaxing home.
