We're a couple months into the New Year and it's time to revisit a resolution that may have gone undone - decluttering your home.This is your sacred space and you
are letting it become overrun with stuff. Mainly stuff you don’t need.
Declutter your home in style with these beautiful storage solutions.
You’re wasting valuable cupboard space by shoving your cookware in there
all willy nilly. Take it out of the dark, especially the pretty ones, and hang
those pots and pans on a decorative rack. You can make your own out of a beautiful
curtain rod and some hooks, or you can buy one specifically for this purpose.
Whatever method you choose, you will free up some much-needed space in your cabinets and give your kitchen a whole

Corners are some of the best places to incorporate storage in any room. Adding shelves and cabinets to the
corners of the room allows you to easily
tuck away anything you need stored, and gives you a unique opportunity for

for a place to store extra decorative towels. Even add them to the kid's room to store books and bins of toys.
Just adding two shelves can give you enough storage room to store up to two
cabinets or a single toy chest of stuff. That’s a lot of storage!
Look Above and
The dead zone between your ceiling
and cabinets is often ignored but can be really useful. Store appliances and
cookware that are not used every day up there, as it can be hard to get
them down daily. Adding horizontal cabinets to conceal the clutter can make
your kitchen appear taller.
Divide and Conquer
Diving up storage space actually gives you more of it. For example, use
drawer dividers and organizers to keep everything in its place and give you more storage space. Divide
up space in your closet and give yourself
more room to hang those stylish threads.
Finding adequate storage in your home is not hard when you know where to
look. Get creative, some of the best storage is in the last place you would
suspect. Start the new year off a little less cluttered and a lot more
