Spatial Living: 5 Tips on How To Reduce Clutter In Your Home
Issue: Apr 2021
Many of us get so caught up in our work and social lives that we may have inadvertently been accumulating things around the house. It’s an undeniably great feeling to come home to a house that’s clear of clutter, particularly after a long, tiring work day. This is why in this article, we’ll walk you through some tips that you can use to keep your house clutter-free!
1. Store unused items
In the course of your life, you will accumulate many keepsakes and bric-a-brac to be displayed or kept in cupboards around the house. These can contribute to clutter! It is good to move them out of your house so you can free up space indoors for comfort and the flexibility to change your layout. The good news is, there is a great way to ensure these items of sentimental value will remain close to you, while you clear space and declutter your house: self-storage!
Whether it’s souvenirs from the family trip 10 years ago, or the toys that your child used to play with, you can store them in an affordable and conveniently located rented self-storage facility that gives you easy round-the-clock access. With StorHub, our 13 facilities are sited across the island for your convenience, so you’ll find that you’re always close to one!
2. Use built-in storage solutions
New homeowners are integrating built-in storage that is built directly into the wall when doing renovations on their new homes. This makes a viable solution if you have the space in your home to do so! Built-in storage can make your home feel larger than it actually is, as it eliminates protruding storage cupboards and shelves.
3. Install smart furniture
If you’re being selective when purchasing your furniture, you can save a lot of space! An ottoman that opens up to reveal storage, a coffee table that doubles as a mini fridge, a bed with built-in drawers are examples of smart furniture. If what you want to store is bulkier than that, StorHub offers more than 10,000 storage units catering to any sizes you may need.
4. Limit the size of storage areas
To keep clutter in check, one of the things you can do is to control the amount of storage space you create, to reduce the amount of items you will accumulate. At the same time, this can also help you save money as you economise!
5. Tidy up regularly
Suggestion: Most of us are working adults with hectic schedules, making it tricky for us to set aside time to reorganise or tidy up our homes. Why not set a date every weekend? A little goes a long way when it comes to clearing out cluttered spaces like your workstation, children’s play area, kitchen and study room. If your weekends are solely reserved for your family and kids, why not aim to dedicate merely 20 to 30 minutes to cleaning up?
Expand your scope from there to organising your entire home every two weeks, and you’ll be surprised at how many things you can remove from your living area! If you store them in a self storage facility like StorHub instead of leaving them lying around, you’ll also have the assurance of knowing that your other items are kept in a safe place with 24-hour CCTV surveillance, without cluttering up your space!
There are many benefits of keeping your house decluttered, but for us, one of the most important aspects is that it helps you maintain a clean environment in your home, less susceptible to the buildup of dust or pests!
