Clutter free living is something many people aspire to. So how do we achieve a calm and tidy home?
1. Think minimalist
Clutter free living demands a certain mindset and you’ll quickly find that implementing minimalist styling in your home automatically inspires a minimalist lifestyle. There’s nothing wrong with having lots of stuff, just make sure you have plenty of places to hide it away. A keepsake box is one way to store treasured possessions so they’re out of sight but still close at hand.
Floating shelves leave the floor free which automatically creates a feeling of space. This wall mounted shelf has been engineered to combine minimalist good looks with incredible strength. Don’t be fooled by its minimal good looks – it can hold plenty of weight.
3. Invest in a stool or two
It’s lovely when friends call in but it can be hard to find space to store extra seating for guests. Invest in a stylish stool or two so that your guests always have somewhere to perch when they stop by for a chat.
4. Opt for fitted bedroom furniture
For many of us, the bedroom is a dumping ground for all those things that don’t fit anywhere else. They may be out of the sight of guests up there but it’s no fun scrambling over spare suitcases, boxes and bags of stuff at the end of every day. Fitted bedroom furniture helps you make good use of the space available, from floor to ceiling. Plan in a good mix of hanging space, drawers and shelves to keep all your bedroom clutter neat and tidy.
5. Design your own storage
Every home is unique and one of the best ways to keep it clutter free is to design storage made especially for you. This media unit was designed to be used as a coffee table with space for storage that could be accessed from two sides.
This contemporary take on the traditional blanket chest was made in our workshop using ripple maple and walnut with solid walnut interior pull out tray and Cedar of Lebanon base. The customer needed a storage box in a specific size and they worked with us to design something that was exactly the right style, size and layout.
