It all begins with one.
You don’t have to fix your entire house all at once! Start by organizing your first shelf or cabinet before proceeding to your other shelves in the next couple of days. Doing this will help you reduce clutter in your space without feeling overwhelmed.
Do you own old furniture with stains? Cover it up! Use a fluffy comforter or a velvet throw to conceal your worn-out sofa. If you don't have a throw, take a thick blanket and fold it lengthwise, then in half, and then tuck it into the cushions for an effortlessly polished look.
RL Tip: Add layers of soft graphic pillows for a more stylish look.
A small tray can help you organize small items and provide an elegant way to present your trinkets. Arrange the articles by placing the tallest ones at the back and the small ones in front. You may use trays to organize the items found in the bathroom. Place it on top of your sink countertop or water closet.
RL Tip: You may also place little bowls all over the house to serve as catchalls. Get more ideas here.
Do stock piles.
Give purpose to the tons of books and magazines lying around your home. Stack them up against the wall and place an object on top of the piles. Display candles and decorative vases on these makeshift podiums. They may even serve as side tables!
RL Tip: If you don't have enough books to make a tower, turn them into a "coffee table" by creating a landscape of books and décor.
Add a paper box.
Stocking too much paper in a room can make it look messy. Create a designated box for your incoming bills. Place the box near the entryway or on your bedside table for easy access. Doing this will help you find important bills, documents, and receipts faster.
