With the new year in full swing, now is the time to de-clutter your home. You don’t need to go full Marie Kondo on your home, with just a few simple tricks you can make your home a haven, ready for the lighter, spring days ahead.
If you don’t have one already, invest in a shoe rack – it will immediately change the feel of your home as you walk in, with all shoes, boots (and muddy items!) tided away. Adding a coat rack to the wall will also help to keep things neat and tidy.
This is the room in the house that can quickly go from neat and tidy to chaos central. To keep all toys, games and miscellaneous items neat and tidy, choose a large toy box or storage ottoman to hide everything away. The Rosaline Blanket Box is an ideal solution, great for clearing the clutter, and it comes with two clever gas struts that save little fingers from getting caught when opening and closing.
Create space ready to tidy away spare blankets and throws when the weather warms up, by investing in a storage footstool, which can double up as extra seating for the room, or simply somewhere to put your feet up! Our Watson Footstool is a great choice, with button detailing, it pairs really well with a classic style sofa.
Begin in the bedroom by sorting through your wardrobe – pack away bulky winter clothes and store these above the wardrobe or under the bed if you have room. Try to keep the bedroom as clear of ‘stuff’ as possible, to create a real haven to retire to at the end of a long day. Once you have made space, try adding a small armchair to the corner of your room, ideal for curling up and reading a book in peace and quiet.
