It’s safe to say we’ve dealt with all kinds of eyesores at home. From tangled wires to unsorted grocery items that are eating up space in the kitchen, it seems that visual clutter is inevitable. Aside from working on a few DIY hacks to deal with wires and connections, there’s another easy way to get rid of eyesores.

Any guesses? It involves decanting some of your supplies into nicer containers that can add to the overall appeal of your home. Quick and easy, isn’t it? There aren’t specific rules when it comes to choosing containers—just shop for functional ones that match the look and feel of your space. You’ll surely love the result: no more bulky boxes and ugly bottles that can ruin your home’s look! Get started with these ideas:

RL Tip: Those who have a coffee station at home may choose to have uniform containers for their coffee essentials to create a chic coffee shop vibe.


2. When you open the fridge or a cabinet in the kitchen, do bottles of all shapes and sizes greet you? Transfer liquid items into condiment bottles that you can also label. You may want to stick to clear bottles for a simple aesthetic.

Shop for chic containers at Habitat.

Instead of keeping tons of bottles on top of the toilet or filling your shower caddy with big shampoo bottles, decant these into pretty pump dispensers to make it easier for you to breeze through your routine. You can place these in a tray with scented candles for a spa-like ambiance.
