5 Tips to Achieve an Organized Home

The fresh feeling of a new year has settled in. You may find that the urge to have clean and tidy spaces is taking center stage in your mind. We have five tips that will help, in most situations, as you embark on this journey. Take a look at how you can easily achieve an organized home. 

Our Five Tips 

  1. Take it one step (or space) at a time. This means dedicating your time to one area so you aren’t running around working on different spaces simultaneously. 
  2. Remove everything. Trust us. This will make the process much easier. 
  3. Embrace decluttering by throwing away items that have expired or do not work properly. If you have items you don’t use, donate them.
  4. Categorizing is a must-do. It’s really helpful to group items together, even if they do not have a clear-cut category. 
  5. Baskets greatly help with organization. Grab some containers, storage bins, or baskets to get the job done. This will make reintroducing items to the space much easier. 

Revitalize Your Closets 

After a busy day, it is easy to take loose items strewn across the floor and toss them in the closet until you have time to put them in the correct place. While unintentional and relatable, the closet becomes a catch-all space. However, it plays a pivotal role in starting to achieve an organized home. It’s crucial to keep in mind that decluttering, sorting, and simplifying are key. One way to revitalize your closets is by adding storage solutions. Pick an option that best suits your style, whether if you like woven baskets or clear bins. 

Redo Your Entryway 

As you think about your entryway, words like ‘formal’, ‘organized’, and ‘spotless’ may come to mind. However, we aren’t talking about the entryway by your front door. We are talking about the one that is predominately used. This may be by a side door or connected to the garage. While it may lack the conventional formality, this high-traffic zone presents a golden opportunity to transform it into a supremely functional space.

Every item in your home deserves a spot, especially in this area of the home. As you start to organize this area, consider adding hooks for backpacks, jackets, and hats. Shelving works wonders for stacking boots and shoes that are kicked off upon entry. Lastly, stylish baskets will help hold your pet’s items. With these small changes, you can instantly transform this space. 

Revitalize the Toy Room 

Kids bring fun and laughter to a home. However, they also bring messiness. If you have been searching for advice on how to maintain an organized home with children running around, we have tips to help. Keep in mind that this is a temporary phase.

If you walk into the toy room and find toys and games littering the floor, start by removing some toys in the meantime. Then, you can strategically reintroduce them a few weeks later, and your kids may feel like they have a new favorite toy! It may find its way to the bookshelf or the coveted spot at the top of the toy bin. 

Re-enhance Efficiency 

Natural light does wonders for a living space. It can make you feel more energized, and you can see everything so clearly. However, too much sunshine can leave you feeling drained. Our team at Bazaar Home Decorating knows exactly how to strike the perfect balance of natural light.
