Decorating your home is an exciting prospect. You get to choose some great pieces and make space your own. However, when it comes to living room furniture, there are so many different options available that it can be easy to go overboard.
Here are some reasons why it’s best to opt for a modern and clutter-free living area:
- Have a wastebasket: it’s not surprising that we tend to accumulate waste on a daily basis and if you don’t tend to it right away, it can get pretty messy real fast. Having a wastebasket might help to reduce the clutter. Ensure you empty your basket on a regular basis to avoid over accumulation. Choose a basket that compliments your décor so it does not stick to like a sore thumb.
- Ensure your flat spaces are clutter– free: things like papers, magazines, and books can pile up real fast and often we take the easy way out and place them on the nearest flat space available. Nip the problem in the bud by cutting down on hoarding magazines and books. Store important papers in files and ensure you purge on things you don’t need so you don’t end up with mountains of stuff all over your coffee and side tables.
- Display photos creatively: we all love to display our favorite photos as a way to treasure those special memories however if you are not careful, you could end up with a lot of clutter in the form of photo frames. Opt for a large collage frame that you hang on the wall which clears up table space. You could also opt for digital photo frames which have large storage capacity and can display multiple photos on a regular basis.
- Have designated zones around the house: as living areas are the center of the house, it’s easy for you to just come down have a drink or eat or do you work and then leave the mess that comes with it as it is. To avoid this, have designated areas where you study or work, have your meals and have a separate area for the kids to play so they can put their toys back once they are done
