Tips & Tricks for Simple Storage Solutions

Here are some easy tips to prevent clutter from engulfing your home

Even the biggest house can feel cramped when it becomes overrun with shoes, clothes, papers, toys, and everything else that can clutter a living space. While these things naturally accumulate over time, we at Handyman Connection of Ottawa want to offer a few easy tips to prevent clutter from engulfing your home:

  • Focus on the trouble spots to avoid getting overwhelmed

In some homes, the living room gets the most use, piling up with books, unopened mail, and various odds and ends. In other houses, the hot spot for clutter might be the kitchen, den, or bedroom. By pinpointing the main trouble areas, you can avoid feeling overwhelmed by what might seem like an entire house-full to organize. Starting with just one room not only brings quick and tangible results – it also gives an extra boost of confidence to get started on other areas.

  • Turn household items into spectacular storage spaces

It’s surprising how many of the everyday items lying around the house can be used to organize and beautify your surroundings. Use mason jars to add a rustic touch when storing small items like nails, bobby pins, batteries, and Q-tips. A coat rack can be converted into a hanger for everything from tennis rackets to necklaces. And don’t underestimate the power of a CD rack or wine rack to hold everyday items like tupperware, office supplies, and more!

  • Donate unused or outgrown clothes

One of the biggest causes of clutter is clothing, so it can be especially satisfying to go through a closet and pull out all of the items that have been collecting dust. Your neighbourhood Goodwill or Salvation Army store will be happy to accept items in good condition, and you’ll have a neater, more manageable closet.

Having shelves and storage space that look great and fit your style and decor is important for maintaining a tidy home. Handyman Connection of Ottawa offers custom carpentry services that come with a satisfaction guarantee. Our experienced handymen specialize in:

 

  • Installing pre-fabricated home shelving
