Is the clutter in your home getting you down? Or perhaps you?re moving home and need to have a clear out before packing. Either way; here are some tips to help you reclaim some space in your house.

Make the most of the space you have

The first tip is to make the most of the space you have. This can mean looking at some space saving options such as folding furniture and vacuum storage bags. Another way to save space is to be creative with your home. A quick internet search will present you with some pretty nifty storage ideas. One of these is using the vertical space in your home by fitting floor-to-ceiling cupboards and fitting shelves above head-height (e.g. above doors). A small folding step ladder will offer you easy access to your belongings that are stored up high.

Get organised

Do you really need everything? It’?s easy to immediately answer yes to this question but think hard. Take the time to go through each room in your house and when you come across something you either haven’?t used for more than a year or forgot you even owned, chuck it out or donate it to your local charity shop. Having a clear out can be surprisingly liberating and if you’?re moving house it?’s going to make packing a whole lot quicker.

Once you have organised your belongings, it will be much easier to find everything and, your home will become tidier and more organised. Get some attractive storage boxes that match your decor and print some labels on your computer. Et voila! You now have somewhere to keep bits and bobs that are currently floating around your house with nowhere to call home.

Self storage

Another option is to use self storage. Self storage is ideal for belongings that you don’?t need everyday access to such as garden furniture, ski equipment, Christmas decorations or suitcases. You could use your self storage pod as you would a spare room or garage.
