Spring Clean?

It’s that time of year again! Spring is just around the corner and the weather is getting better. 

Marie Kondo’s new TV show got me inspired to remove anything that “doesn’t spark joy”. Watch it on Netflix if you haven’t yet to get some tips from the best.

It’s a great time to start thinking of doing some decluttering or even go all in and start fresh with a home renovation!

Below a shortlist of some creative organising tips for your home. 

  1. My favourite: Create stations throughout the home. 

This easy access solution is decorative and practical. It can be anything from a coffee/tea station to a key station containing the necessary basics. 

2. Drawer organisation: use boxes of various sizes and for clothing, use the correct folding techniques to keep a tidy drawer. 

3. The pantry: one of the most popular “house goals” is to have a well stocked pantry which looks just like that dream showroom kitchen. 

*Tip: Label your containers with the item name and it’s expiry date.

Before you do any of the above, start by going through one area of the home at a time. Get rid of anything that you don’t use or like and any expired or broken items. A great idea is to set up an online store or give items in good condition to a charity. 

Thinking of a complete renovation?

Get inspired by the before and after of a kitchen in a recent project we’ve designed. A side infill extension in this semi allowed enough space to fit a spacious kitchen including an island.
