RL Tips: Nifty Ideas to Make Your Space Look Orderly and Fun

Hang your things for a more organized home


If you lack floor space, you can choose to hang some of your things to keep your space clean and orderly. Design consultant Elle Uy shares, "Don't put so many things on one single hook. They'll pile up and will look cluttered. Have a hook or rack designated for one or two items."

Take note of these organizing tricks:

1. Lacking floor space? Hang your belongings to keep your room clean and clutter-free.  Use hooks for little things like keys,  and a rack for larger items like bags.

2. “Finishing touches” for your everyday outfit, like handbags, scarves, and accessories, are better hung so that even if you’re in a hurry, you can grab them on your way out.

3. To make your rack double as décor, hang your most attractive items. Your fashion pieces can even follow a color scheme to prettify your coat rack.
