We know that living in a cluttered space can have negative affects on your mood, productivity, and overall well-being. A clutter-free home is not only visually appealing, but also brings a sense of calm and order to your everyday routines. As the temperatures start to drop and we begin to embrace all things cozy, there's never been a better time to prepare your home for the season of hosting and gathering ahead. Below, we share some of our favorite tips to help you simplify your space and create a peaceful sanctuary that you and your guests will enjoy all season long.
1. Start Small
Decluttering an entire house all at once can feel overwhelming. The best way to begin decluttering your home is by choosing a small, manageable area, like a drawer or a closet. We guarantee that once you experience the satisfaction of decluttering a small space, you'll be motivated to tackle larger areas.
2. Invest in Storage Solutions
Storage solutions such as shelves, bins, and baskets are essential for maintaining an organized home. These solutions not only effectively conceal clutter but have the potential to add a touch of charm to your living space, especially if you invest in quality pieces that complement your decor.
3. Create Designated Spaces
To help organize your space, it's best practice to have a specific place for every item in your home. This will not only help you to easily find your everyday items, but prevent clutter from accumulating in the first place. Whether it be a bowl on your entryway table to store keys and a wallet, or a tray on your nightstand for stray jewelry, there's no shortage of ways you can introduce thoughtful items into your home that serve an organizational purpose.
4. Abide by the "One In, One Out" Rule
Though this rule has its challenges, it's a great way to create a clutter-free, thoughtfully designed home. For every new item you bring into your space, consider letting go of a similar one. This rule encourages you to be more mindful of what you acquire and helps to maintain a tidy home.
