Organisation is a vital part of creating a comfortable and tidy home, and in this guide we’ll be giving you some handy tips on how to keep your home organised and clutter-free, from storage solutions to incorporating different ways to use your furniture for ultimate tidiness!

Investing in built-in storage solutions

Built-in storage can obviously be a more attractive option than using plastic storage boxes and baskets, but it can be significantly more expensive. Investing in built-in furniture, however, is better for your home in the long term and is customisable to your needs and lifestyle. Whether you need more drawers or clothing rails, we can create a bespoke wardrobe for you. If this is something you are interested in, get in touch!

Bench seating

Shoe racks can be a thing of the past with this clever storage idea! As well as being a seating option, they can add decorative value to empty areas of your home, from hallways to bedrooms. You can store your shoes and other items such as blankets inside the bench, and add cushions to the bench itself to make it a comfy place to sit.
Indoor benches can come in all shapes and sizes, from a single-seater to longer benches for family homes.

Hooks

Hooks are always an inexpensive option, whether you have a coat rack in your porch area or hanging over the back of doors (or both!), they’re great if you don’t want to take up all your wardrobe space by hanging up coats and jackets. You can get creative by choosing different coat pegs, whether they are woodland-themed for your country style home or DIY pegs to fit your shabby-chic style.

Saying no to junk drawers

We’re all guilty of having a junk drawer or two in the house – and it’s absolutely fine to have one! One of the best ways to stay organised is to really limit yourself to having one junk drawer, and making sure everything else has a home. You can even make sure that your junk drawer stays tidy by using dividers or organisers so that you can avoid clutter and find everything easier.

Giving everything a home

This one is pretty self-explanatory, but everything should have its place. Clothes in the wardrobe, shoes stored away in a bench or on a shoe rack, and any bedding and towels folded away in your airing cupboard (if you have one. Alternatively they can be folded on a shelf or in a basket). Keys are one of the most common items to get lost if you’re someone who prefers to throw things and find them later. The best way to change this is to have a key hook near your door, so they get put away as soon as you get home (but don’t place them in areas where they can be seen by potential burglars such as near doors and windows). You can also use a key bowl if you’d prefer not to hang up key hooks.
