We totally understand if you’re someone who tends to amass a great many possessions over a short amount of time. It might be that you’re a creative individual, and so absolutely love having ornaments, antiques, craft materials, decorations and wall art dotted around your home. You may have a strong sense of style, and simply cannot pass up a bargain relate to home furnishing when you see it.
Or, perhaps you just have a family. Even the most minimalist home designer will struggle to keep their home uncluttered should they have children running around. For this reason, while it’s nice to have a clear-out or simply redefine your space from time to time, don’t feel bad or chastise yourself if it’s gotten a little out of hand. The solutions are there, and they can be applied with care and diligence.
In fact, that’s exactly what we hope to chive with this article. With some of the following advice, we hope you can reclaim your space once more, only to decorate it and enjoy that happiness all over again:
Consider Storage Options
It’s good to store your items when you no longer need or wish to present them in your house for the time being. With secure storage solutions, you can make sure they’re safe and protected in the right conditions for long-term use. It may also be that valuable items you would have otherwise stored in the attic are given more space and are protected under lock and key as well as security staff for some time. This way, you can help your house shine anew without having to stuff your attic or basement all the way to becoming a fire hazard, and potentially damaging your possessions in the process.
Represent Your Personality
Those of us who love decorating our homes may find it fun to use the latest home furnishings or trend packages to help the rooms in our property shine. But really, we can get much more enjoyment out of representing our personalities within our home and everything that entails. So, instead of a massive and expensive piece of artwork above your mantlepiece, why not have your holiday photographs probably framed and placed? Perhaps you like antiques, but why not stick to a setting and an area you love, such as the 20s and 30s art deco scene? This kind of approach can be tremendously helpful.
Enjoy A Home Sale!
Even the most organized avid home decorator can find themselves with an abundance of possessions they don’t really know what to do with. It may be a great idea, then, to run a home sale, or to place all of these items on eBay, or maybe even to donate them to charity. This way, you can find them a new home, while raising funds either for yourself or a good cause. Then, you can enjoy this cycle which you’ve become so adept at once more.
With this advice, we hope you can help your home space feel new again. It’s the least you deserve!
