6 ways to declutter your interiors
Everybody wants a cleaner home, and short of hiring a professional organizer, there are very few people who could accomplish that level of tidiness. Well, we’d say that cleanliness is a matter of perspective but it’s really not – it’s a built in pat of your environment, and how to choose to play with your belongings. So let’s tap into some of the best interior hacks to get a clutter-free, clean and organized space.
- Getting rid of the extra
We all have a habit of holding on to things that hold a lot of sentimental value. If anything’s been with you for a long period of time, then it will carry memories and those are the hardest to get rid of. So when you decide to clutter, the best way to go would be getting rid of every extra thing that could make your interiors seem cumbersome. In the image below, you’ll see a bedroom that has been stripped off everything but the basics and the result is phenomenal.
- Creative furniture interventions
If you are collector of any sort, then it would be best to have your furniture custom designed to hold whatever it is that you love to collect. The image below shows a media wall which has been laden with shelves heavy with books. It’s a good way to combine functional aspects with visual stimulation without inducing a cluttered vibe.
- Showcase the things you love
Not everybody is a Grade A hoarder, but some people will always hold on to tiny knick knacks that are of emotional value to them. The best way to declutter those is to showcase them. The image below features a wall design that has been especially designed to feature objects of sentimental value – from picture frames to coffee cups and even old jackets.
- For all the neat-freaks
For those of you who are quite OCD about your compartmentalization, there are now designs that will allow you to go nuts. The image blow features a dressing table design that has an internal drawer made just for people who love sorting out their possessions. It’s an awesome way to declutter without resorting to weird boxing techniques.
- Efficient kitchen add-ons
The kitchen is arguable most susceptible to household clutter. This is mostly because it is a functional space and the workability of the cooking process is not exactly the cleanest. So designers have come up with efficient add-ons like pull-out compartmentalized drawers that will make cooking an easier, efficient and cleaner process.
- Playing with large surfaces
The best way to make your homes seem decluttered is by laminating large surfaces with smooth textures. This will create an automatic cleanliness within the space that will also radically enhance the visuals of the interior.
