Remove The Appearance Of Clutter Without Compromising Your Style!


If you have lived in one location for many years, chances are pretty good that you have acquired a lot of stuff. If you have noticed that your home now seems overloaded with limited space to move about, there are ways to improve the appearance of clutter without compromising your style.

Room dividers

Room dividers come in all shapes and sizes. Some are free-standing and others you can mount to the wall or secure to your ceiling. Free-standing room dividers come in bi-fold, tri-fold and even quad-fold forms. They are made of wood, canvas, and metal. Some even feature shelves for displaying artwork, collectibles, photos, plants and books. Fixed room dividers also come in various shapes and sizes. There are stylish room divider curtains that can help you create a private retreat in a loft or studio apartment, giving you the ability to make two separate spaces out of one. 

There are also sliding partitions that come in your choice of solids and patterns, transparent or opaque and a wide range of fabrics and metals to complement your existing decor.

Decorative storage containers

Today many people take organizing to the next level by incorporating decorative storage containers into their homes to not only hide the appearance of clutter but also to add convenience. An open shelving unit no longer stands empty with a few collectibles. Instead, canvas, cardboard, and wood boxes now occupy the space, adding character and a handy place to store loose items without notice. 

To bring concealed storage to the bedroom and living room, a large storage chest at the end of a bed or placed behind a sofa provides a wonderful place to keep extra linens, blankets, pillows, out of season clothing and toys. The large space provided allows you to clean out the clutter and enjoy your room once again. For a playroom or child's bedroom, adding a toy box with a large shelving unit on top gives you a place to contain their toys out of sight while still allowing for easy access. The shelves on the top are ideal for keeping their books, puzzles, and games, neat, organized and ready for use. 

Closet organizers 

Want to freshen up your bedroom quickly, install a closet organizer. There are a variety of sizes available and many have add-on features that allow you to expand at a later date. By adding fixed shelves, hanging garment containers, shoe racks and additional rods for clothing, you are removing piles from your dresser and floor. Not only are you regaining your space but you are also now able to locate your clothing and accessories quickly, as well as easily. 

Wall racks and floating shelves 

If you are limited on space and can not bring in a large item to house your personal items, floating shelves offer a great way to display your books, photos, collectibles and plants without giving up valuable floor space. They come in a variety of styles and finishes to suit your needs allowing you to complement your interior. In addition to floating shelves, wall racks give you the perfect place to hang items. You can use them for keys, a dog leash, umbrellas, coats, hats, scarves, handbags, kitchen gadgets, towels, magazines and your collection of fine wine. They definitely add character and make excellent use of your existing walls. 

Decluttering and organizing your home's rooms does not mean that you have to give up on your style. There are so many products on the market, as well as many DIY projects that you can use to further complement your space. With a little creativity, you can acquire a neat and organized appearance, while still enjoying the look you have worked hard to achieve.
