3 Ways to declutter your living room

Do you feel like your living room is currently more clutter than anything else? If you’re looking for ways on how you can declutter your living space and transform it into a tranquil place to relax then you will love these ideas.

Use storage baskets

One of the reasons many people struggle to keep their living areas decluttered is the little knick knacks that get left laying around. These little knick knacks once built up can turn into a complete mess. There is a great way to overcome this though with the help of some handy storage baskets.

Dot pretty storage baskets in a few spaces around your living room, these can then act like a kind of mini dumping ground for bits and bobs. Just make sure that these baskets get emptied when they are full or at least once a week to keep on top of the clutter.

Use cupboards to keep things out of sight

Okay so the open plan storage units may look super cool and modern but unless you keep on top of your clutter they can start to look very messy. Cupboards and storage units with doors on keep all of the mess out of sight.

This also goes for tv units, having all your dvds and electronics on display can look a little untidy and cluttered. Those handy tv units with doors and draws are much more practical as well as side boards with doors.

Talk to the people you live with

If you live alone then it’s so much easier to keep your home clutter free. When you live with a family, flatmates etc it starts to become a little tricky. The others in your home may not feel the same way about keeping clutter free as you do. The best thing to do is to explain to the others how you feel and how you will make the effort if you help as well.

Older children and other adults are more than capable of clearing away their own mess. For younger children however having a single toy box in the living room is a great choice. Just make the rule that it gets tidied up every night before bed. Encouraging your young child to tidy it up themselves while you ‘help’.
