Organisation at Home

In the current market, buyers may have to lower their standards a little and realise the 3 bedroom flat is more financially viable than the 4 bedroom house on the hill.

As a result, space can become a premium in the household. Small homes, due to their lack of cupboard and storage space, often build up clutter in the bedroom and kitchen areas. But fret not! The key to avoiding the potential untidiness is organisation…and here are some ideas.

boxes

Put that extra space in your garage to good use. Nails, glue, few slats of wood and some cheap plastic boxes won’t set you back too much and will create a large storage area from nothing.

A couple sturdy towel rails can provide an easily accessible home for all your pot lids. This saves on cupboard space in the kitchen and skips the inevitable clambering and clunking when you’re pot-searching.

A simple magnetic strip fastened to the bottom of a cupboard keeps all those spice jars off the counter, leaving you more space to prepare your yummy food.

Towels and linen can take up a heck of a lot of space. Instead of hiding them away, these hanging baskets almost make a feature out of them. It’s also super easy it is to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Thinking out the box can lead to many creative storage concepts that need not cost you too much money. For more ideas on how to successfully arrange your home, follow Private Property’s “Home Organisation” board on Pintrest.
