Organizational Tips

Having a beautiful interior design in your home is nothing without some organization. If there is too much clutter the beautiful design will get lost in all the items and your mind will be stressed. Clean and organized home can greatly affect your mood and stress levels, so make sure to master these few tips on how to keep your home free of clutter.

Organize each room to fit your needs

Every room has its designated function to satisfy your needs. However, with too much clutter the room can become completely useless. Thus, reorganize and give back the purpose to each room. The kitchen should be clean and fully functional so you can cook in peace and with love. The bathroom, too, should be clean and everything should work properly. Your living room should always be tidy, spacious and comfortable so it can accommodate your guests and family. Kid’s rooms and bedrooms should be completely adjusted to everyone’s needs. Adjust the heights of beds, closets, shelves etc. Also, pay attention to clothes and how you organize and store them; the same goes for toys in kid’s room.

Tidy up your closet

Closets tend to get crowded and messy. We lose track of the things we store there which results in a huge pile of clothes shoved inside. This provides stress because you can never know where certain pieces are and you lose time while searching and ironing everything. In order to nip this in the bud, you should start grouping your clothes. You can even store them according to frequency of use and put the ones you wear often in the front or lower on the shelf, while the pieces you don’t wear that often you can put at the back. Additionally, the things you don’t wear at all should be given away to charity, while you will manage to declutter your closet.

Consider a storage unit

Once you start reorganizing and decluttering, you will notice how many things you have that can be disposed off or stored somewhere else. Some older pieces of furniture, older clothes or some outdoor furniture and similar items can easily find a new home. Many families in Australia actually opt for renting storage units for storing their things from time to time. If you do have things that need temporary storage until you figure out what to do with them, you can opt for temporary storage in Brisbane and remove some excess items from your home for better comfort.

Clear the kitchen cabinets

Cabinets are one of the messiest places in your kitchen. You constantly keep adding items and food into them which creates a chaos. Take your time and clear the kitchen cabinets and start over. Remove everything, organize dishes, food, containers and so on and put everything back with care. Also, every time you take something out, try to keep it organized and put it back into place and you will manage to avoid clutter. Also, you can use containers with labels and keep your snacks and baking supplies tidy and easy to find.

Keep the documents at bay

Every house has some papers that cannot be thrown away. We need place for our bills, contracts, warranties, receipts, etc. However, they all end up in the same drawer and you need to dig deep in order to find something you need. To avoid this, buy folders where you can keep the bills and contracts and make sure to label everything for better organization. Also, you can have a colour-coded system for each folder and type of documents and always know where to look.

An organized home promises an organized mind and that’s what everyone needs. Master these tips and declutter your home. You will notice instant change in atmosphere that will contribute to everyone’s health.

Cleaning And Organizing For Easter

As a traditional family holiday, Easter is usually a time for big family gatherings, lavish festive meals and fun group activities in the beautiful weather outside. And if everyone is coming to your home this year, Easter means one more thing – spring cleaning. On one of the sunny weekends ahead, gather up your strength and plan your time well. With a good strategy, cleaning and organizing for Easter is easy and doesn’t require an entire army of professional cleaners.

Winter isn’t really a wonderful time for washing windows and deep cleaning of carpets, and towards its end our homes are far from looking their best. Dust and dirt have found their way to every corner of your house and removing them unfortunately isn’t as easy as we would want it to be. But where to start? The preparations for Easter seem so many that finding the right organizational system is really important. One of the essential steps is obviously deep cleaning, but before starting with it, try to go through every room, de-clutter and pick out the things you don’t need any more – old clothing, torn and de-colourised bedding, piles of old newspapers and magazines, broken toys, and so on. Decide on what could be recycled or reused, and what’s for the garbage. Check the attic, every closet and every cabinet, and get rid of all the clutter – it can make spring cleaning even more challenging.

Next, you can proceed with the clean-up. Start with the kitchen and pay some special attention to the oven and the refrigerator, because you will be probably doing a lot of cooking around Easter. Greasy grime is settled on the kitchen cabinets – remove the build-up with a wood cleaner or a soapy water and a soft cloth. Then go to the living room and start with the book shelves, cupboards and cabinets. Wash the windows well both on the inside and on the outside, using either a household cleaning product, or a mixture of water and lemon juice. Instead of wiping with a regular rag, rub the windows with an old newspaper – it’s great for really dirty and smudgy windows. Professionals like Sparkling Carpet Cleaners Battersea advice to wash the curtains, vacuum clean upholsteries or if they have stains, clean up with a mixture of water and white vinegar. Mop all the the floors, even the wood ones, using soapy water and cleaning the baseboards with a dampen cloth.

Move on to the bedrooms – they are usually the easiest to clean up. Wash all the bed linen and coverings, dust off, polish the furniture. Use the vacuum on the mattress and follow up with a good disinfecting spray to kill all the bacteria and odours. Put the pillows and blankets in the washing machine. Don’t forget the bathrooms – clean them after a hot shower, the steam makes dirt come off easily. Mix water and baking soda for the tiles, but if you run into serious stains, choose a good bathroom cleaning product. Change the towels and wash the shower curtains – they should be changed or washed regularly. Clean the washing machine, as well – run it with hot water, then rub it with baking soda and white vinegar, leaving them for an hour. Run it again and after it finishes, wipe it dry. This should remove not only the dirt from it, but also any unpleasant smells.

After cleaning your home and throwing all the garbage, organize and tidy the yard and the garden. Prepare for the Egg hunt by removing weeds, dead or dry plants, as well as any leafs that are left from the autumn. Mown the lawn, refresh the shed with a new coat of paint, and plant early spring flowers to have a colourful and beautiful Easter. You can try pansy, bloodroot, wild “harmony” iris, yellow Trillium, Grape Hyacinth, daffodil, and others. Right before Easter, set the festive mood by decorating your home with cute Easter candles, egg and Easter bunny décor and a lot of fresh flowers.
