Tell us if this sounds familiar: You’re running late for work and know the perfect outfit you want to wear. Unfortunately, with a stuffed closet and crammed dresser, finding that shirt is like looking for a grown-up at a One Direction concert (and if you’re asking who that is, our point, exactly). The truth is, a cluttered home is not ideal. Here’s how to make your house feel less cramped:
One of the best moves you can make in a room is elevating the bed and adding storage space underneath. Bed risers are cheap and found at most home goods stores. Find a set of drawers or containers that can fit easily under the box spring and can hold items taking up too much space in your house—like winter coats, extra throws, or holiday decorations.
Mirrors are a trusty tool for adding the illusion of more space in your house. At first glance, a mirror can make your home seem larger than it is, while adding an extra bounce of light to dark corners. If you have anything blocking your vanity or full-length mirror (or window sills, for that matter), move it to a different spot. Yes this means knickknacks, shoes, and books. Your house will thank you!
Do you have a “chairdrobe,” aka a chair you use as extra closet space? We’ve all been there. Sometimes that extra step from the dryer to the hanger is, well, a long journey. However, if you really know how to organize for more space, hang up those wayward sweaters and tuck away unfolded shirts to make a big difference in your room.
One of the biggest organizational hacks is creating a place for mail. Invest in some cute bins that will help you organize the bills and magazines. And be sure to shred junk mail at least once a month to decrease additional clutter.
Another way to make your home feel more organized? A good house cleaning. The only cleaning hack here is a simple call to The Maids. Call us at 1-800-THE-MAIDS for a quote today.
