Since 2009, I’ve been working in the interior design industry. I’ve interned for a hospitality design company, worked in various furniture and fabric showrooms, and been an interior designer for a design-build firm. I decided to hang out my shingle and launch m studio interior design in 2015. And now I get to do what I love best: Design homes that are totally customized to the clients I work with!
Happy new year, dear friends! As we embark upon a fresh journey into the dawn of a new year, it’s the opportune time to invigorate our surroundings and infuse them with renewed vitality. I am absolutely thrilled to introduce you to this guide that will set the tone for a revitalized and harmonious home in your new year!
So store away all the holiday decor and get ready to discover some fun insights! Let’s revitalize every nook and cranny of your space with elegance and order together! Join me as we delve into 5 playful yet pragmatic tips designed to declutter and organize various facets of your household. Are you ready to dive into this enriching adventure together? Get ready to transform your living spaces into havens of both flair and functionality!
Bid farewell to pantry chaos once and for all! Begin by purging expired items (yes, that pancake mix hidden in the depths!). Streamline the process by categorizing similar products; it’ll streamline your search for pantry storage essentials.
Personally, I prefer a clear distinction between canned goods and boxed items. If you and your family have a large amount of canned goods, try a stackable can rack organizer.
As a Filipino gal, I alway have rice in the pantry and keep it in canisters! These are a great investment to store flours, grains, and the like. Not only do they maintain pantry orderliness, but they also preserve the freshness of pastas, dried fruit, and much more.
Stackable containers are also wonderful and cute labels to keep everything in place. Smaller snacks can find their designated space in a discreet bin tucked away within the pantry’s confines.
Use vertical storage solutions to maximize space and make grabbing that favorite snack or water bottle a breeze.
Transform your bathroom ambiance by reclaiming valuable counter space through strategic organization. Consider stowing your everyday essentials discreetly behind the mirrored doors of your medicine cabinet or, if you have yet to put in a medicine cabinet, definitely utilize your vanity for purpose-built organizers nestled inside your bath cabinets.
Elevate the aesthetic by showcasing your daily hand soap atop a stylish tray alongside a scented candle, adding an elegant touch to your functional setup. To tackle unruly clutter, invest in drawer organizers, ensuring a tidy arrangement of your various bathroom items. Additionally, invigorate the environment by introducing the refreshing presence of indoor plants, infusing the space with a vibrant and revitalizing energy.
Roll up towels for a spa-like vibe and bring in a touch of greenery with some low-maintenance (or faux!) plants.
The garage – a space of forgotten boxed up items! Sort through tools and gadgets, donating or recycling what you no longer need… now is the time, friends! If you know you have a plethora of tools, maybe it’s time to invest in a tool rack.
Wall-mounted shelves or pegboards also work wonders for storing tools and creating a clutter-free zone. Trust us, your car will thank you!
Revamp your living room’s entertainment area by streamlining its setup! Begin by minimizing the decor, leaning towards a more curated display that accentuates your space. Consider accessories to further hide and organize (or neatly display) electronic gadgets, gaming consoles, etc., ensuring both functionality and aesthetic appeal within your entertainment area.
When it comes to your furniture, rearranging or even infusing new elements to breathe life into the room’s ambiance can really upgrade the environment. An effective way to add a personal and contemporary touch is by refreshing your framed photo collection; update it with recent cherished memories or reframe older pictures to complement your current decor scheme.
Speaking of decor, give those throw pillows a refreshed look with new covers. Maybe they’re more textural to offer a sense of repose and softness, or perhaps they have a fun vibrant pop of color to create visual intrigue.
If you have the opportunity to bring in new furniture pieces, introduce multifunctional pieces like storage ottomans or coffee tables with hidden storage to serve as stylish storage solutions. These can cleverly conceal remote controls, magazines, or miscellaneous items, effectively tidying up the space while integrating an element of sophistication.
Do you have one too many throw blankets? If you just don’t have the storage space, but perhaps have some wall space, a blanket ladder could be just the ticket to create a visually appealing piece of decor that will also allow you to snag a blankie for movie night with ease!
Elevate your bedroom into a tranquil sanctuary by streamlining the bedside tables and dresser tops. Consider paring down items to essentials, such as a lamp, a book, or a decorative piece (think a candle or a picture frame), to create a serene and uncluttered sleeping environment. Ladies, if you’re like me and have a habit of taking off the jewelry before heading to bed, a small jewelry dish on the nightstand could maintain that clean and uncluttered feel!
Optimize the space by investing in under-bed storage containers or drawers, perfect for stowing away seasonal clothing, extra linens, or items not frequently used, thereby maximizing floor space and maintaining a clean aesthetic.
Now, let’s embrace the transformative power of a daily bed-making routine! Committing to this simple yet impactful task not only imparts a sense of orderliness but also instantly uplifts the overall appearance of your bedroom. It sets the tone for the day, cultivating a tidier atmosphere and a more inviting space to retreat to at night. This small habit is a cornerstone of bedroom organization, enhancing the room’s ambiance and promoting a more restful environment conducive to relaxation and rejuvenation.
Remember friends, decluttering isn’t just about getting rid of stuff; it’s about creating space for what truly matters and to allow you to thrive. Dive into these tips, get creative, and watch your home transform into a peaceful and stylish sanctuary! I can’t wait to see what you create!! Wishing you a beautiful and reinvigorated new year!!
