Are you tired of looking around your home and seeing too much stuff? Who isn’t! For busy families, it seems impossible to keep the home looking really good because there is just so much clutter everywhere. While it may be too tough to do anything about it right now, with a few additions to your home, it will become a lot easier. Consider the following tips, as told by design professionals:
#1 Baskets. Baskets are a fantastic addition to nearly any interior style. Many home owners here in Southwest Florida like beachy decor, and wicker baskets go great with that. Even if you prefer a more modern, or even traditional style, you can find the right baskets that help you hide items like magazines by the couch and shoes near the front door, without detracting from your sense of style.
#2 Built-in Shelves. When you want your shelves to add to your decor instead of detract from it, you’ll want to call on a reputable contractor to give you shelves built right into the wall. This is the perfect way to make it look like your space-saving solution is a decor choice instead of a way to keep your house looking clean. Only you will know that it does both!
#3 Space-Saving Furniture. Have your furniture do double duty! Instead of making a room look more cluttered, the right furniture can actually do the opposite. Select savvy furniture that doubles as storage, such as a coffee table that holds baskets on a lower shelf, a trundle bed, or an ottoman with seats inside.
#4 Pantry Storage Bins. Is your too-small kitchen the part of your home that looks messy? That’s an easy one to fix; just tackle your pantry! After you purchase a few clear bins, you can get rid of most of the boxes you would normally keep to store cereal, granola bars, and more. It will deliver you a more streamlined look, plus make it easier for kids to select their snacks.
#5 Cabinets. The most popular way to declutter your kitchen or bathroom is to add on extra cabinets, while refacing what you currently have. Thanks to our Custom Cabinetry division, Beattie Development is your trusted source for beautiful, unique, and functional cabinets. Don’t limit your needs for cabinets to those two rooms though.
