Keeping your London property clutter free can be hard to do. It seems that the more time we spend away from our homes, the less we notice the clutter building up.
Along with this, shopping has become so much easier. Now you don’t even have to leave your bed to make a purchase, you can do it online in the comfort of your own home. On top of that, it is delivered straight to your door, so if you are a compulsive spender like many people, by the time your postman gives you your delivery, you may regret it or forget that you even bought it in the first place.
Furthermore, people are living busier lifestyles. There are always things to do and people to meet. This makes it even harder for people to stay on top of their clutter because they are juggling so many things at one time.
And let’s not get into the ongoing struggle of balancing your work life and family life. We all know how stressful it can be when you are spending all day at work, only to come home to a disorganised, cluttered living environment. It can be even worse for those who own a small business or work from home, as it is likely that if your home is cluttered, your work space will most likely be riddled with the same extent of clutter as your home.
Organisation Tips from Professional Declutterers in London
Don’t Rely On Storage
Whilst you should obviously and quite rightly be allowed to keep things in your home, you shouldn’t just stuff everything into a storage container or bag and call it a day. Although your guests and friends may not know that the clutter is there, you will. And in order to free yourself from clutter, you will need to go ahead and do it instead of cutting corners.
Use Clever Storing Methods
There are plenty different types of furniture that has hidden storage compartments such as beds with draws underneath, or things you can add to your property such as shelves. Bottom line is that storage doesn’t have to be a plastic box or black trash bag; it can be decorative as well. You can find clever ways to store important documents, sentimental objects and possessions such as clothing and shoes.
Avoid Using Counter Tops as A Dumping Ground
Counter tops, tabletops, windowsills and other flat surfaces can easily become a clutter zone. Instead of leaving something on your counter top, thinking that it will only be for a second or that you will throw it away later, put it back in it’s place straight after you’re done using it. Not only will this keep you organised, but you will know which items to throw away if you find that they don’t have a place in your home.
Following these tips will keep you organised and your home clutter free. The most effective way to declutter is by contacting a professional organiser, as they have the expertise and skills to help you complete an otherwise tedious task.
