If you are not truly an organized person, the more time you spend in a house, and the greater quantity of things you are going to need, the more stuffed or crowded your house will seem. There are, however, people who never get a headache trying to find that thing for hours, because they are always organized! If you follow a few tricks with care, you too are going to be one of those people who have a house where everything is in the proper place!
Utilize the full potential of your bookshelf
Of course bookshelves are meant to store lots and lots of books, but if you wish, you can always store things such as photographs, event albums, antique glass pieces etc. in the bookshelf itself! Besides, magazines and papers are good items for bookshelf too. Categorize each shelf according to a particular type of item in order to find things easily. If you have a desk near the shelf, you can keep your reference books, pencils, papers, pens, staplers etc. as well!
Do not forget decorative baskets
It does not matter if the house you have is of casual style or traditional, because decorative baskets blend in with every type of house out there. Things such as shells, firewood, crayons, fruits etc. can be kept in different baskets. There is nothing that work better than stylish baskets to keep your place neat and tidy.
Store food with style
Pretty much everyone wants a little more space for the kitchen. The best thing you can do is use utilitarian containers, or classy containers made of glass, ceramic or tin. The number of things containers can store is endless, starting from tea, coffee and sugar to cereal, flour and pasta! In fact, when you use really attractive containers, your kitchen decoration automatically improves. In case there is little counter space, using racks is always a good option. Besides, if you add plants and baskets, your kitchen will look like those shown in decor magazines!
Make use of an entertainment centre
Nowadays, a TV almost never comes alone. You always have the DVD players, the remotes, the gaming consoles and what not. With so many things hovering around, it is normal for things to get messier. An efficient entertainment centre is what you need to keep everything looking great!
Take care of your closet structure
With shirts, hats, ties, dresses, skirts, handbags, shoes and so on and on, it does not take time for a closet to look like a nightmare! To avoid all the mess, have the closet structured in such a way that tie bars, hat hooks, built-in drawers, multi-level shelves etc. are all included. Your best bet in this case is to call a professional.
Use file cabinets
When the world didn’t know computers, people had big and deep file cabinets to store important documents. Just because you have a computer does not mean you should make a mess with warranty cards, instruction manuals and important papers! Go get a few proper file cabinets!
Make the foyer look great
Since the foyer is where your visitors get to look at first, you need to be sure to use small tables, and basic or decorative shelves to organize the things that you are accustomed with.
When buying furniture, go for decorative ones. The days when decoration and function were different things are over. Nowadays, a piece of furniture can be both stylish and efficient. So make use of designs with lovely charm, and keep your items stored with true sense of style!
