Tips to Keep Your Household Organised

How well are you managing the clutter in your home? There is nothing worse than arriving home to an untidy mess after a long day at work when all you want to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the space around you.

The good news is that staying organised is fairly simple, if you get the basics right. Here we share five constructive tips to keep your household organised.

1. Allocate constant clear areas

Life is busy and so are our families. As we rush around the house we often leave items on countertops with the good intention of packing them away at a later stage. It’s very easy for items to accumulate, which means clutter. An easy way to avoid this happening is to make sure all items are packed away immediately after use. It may seem obvious but making sure that there is a place for everything in the home is an easy way to help maintain an organised space.

2. Use a self storage unit

Decluttering can sometimes be a tricky process as you come across items that you don’t want to get rid of but don’t have the space to store at home. Normally these items hold sentimental value or are only used seasonally. Using self storage companies are an incredibly convenient way to safely store your belongings off-site. Renting a self storage unit will give you more space to organise your home while enjoying the various benefits of safely keeping your belongings in an accessible, convenient and secure space.

3. Tactically position your furniture

Did you know that the way that you position your furniture can have a big impact on the amount of space in the home? Consider placing the largest piece of furniture as the focal point in the home and keep the doorways open to maximise space. Ensure passage ways that link rooms are free so that guests and family members can move around comfortably. Another suggestion is to make use of vertical furniture in order to maximise floor space and create an illusion of length.

4. Create a routine cleaning roster

Maintaining a clean home can be difficult to juggle between work, school and family time. A good idea is to select one area at a time and do a thorough clean – starting and finishing in one place. A simple and effective way to maintain an organised household is to constantly clean as you go along. This includes introducing small habits such as making your bed in the morning, putting your clothes in the laundry, washing your dishes after meals and hanging the keys up when you come home.

5. Employ a housekeeper

Leading a busy lifestyle often means we don’t have the time to constantly clean up your home. Without regular cleaning, your home can easily become untidy and chaotic. Employing a housekeeper on a weekly basis will ensure that your home receives a deep cleaning, helping the space feel fresh and orderly.

Following these five tips will help encourage a clean, organised and clutter-free home.
