Design works hand in hand with aesthetic order. If you have a cluttered corner in your room—even if you have the best furniture pieces, it defeats the purpose of having a functional space.

To help us better understand the importance of an organized space, we asked four interior designers why organizing is essential to highlighting your home's beautiful interiors.

It allows you to maximize your space

"You cannot appreciate a space filled with unnecessary things or clutter even if it is well-designed. Take advantage of a well-designed space by maximizing the use of storage spaces and keeping everything organized." – Interior designer Carmen Lim-Regala

It makes decorating functional

“Organizing makes a setup easy on the eyes and not heavy to one's feelings. It also helps in knowing where things are kept and placed. For example, a collage of frames on the wall are best appreciated when they are arranged properly by height, spacing, size, print, and colors.” –Interior designer Kathleen Obcemea 

It helps you prioritize storage

“A well-designed space should be functional and practical aside from being pleasing to the eye. Our things usually accumulate over timefrom shopping bags, books, clothes and before you know it, it's everywhere! Adding hidden storage solutions within the design helps you organize without sacrificing the overall aesthetic of your space." –Interior designer Jean Suzanne Sy

It affects your lifestyle

“Organizing involves space planning for an effective use of space. It should keep the interiors neat and orderly. Maintaining an organized interior should be part of your lifestyle as a well-designed interior affects your well-being.” –Interior designer Joy Jabile-Ejercito
