Home Living : February 15th 2011
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, February 15, 2011 Take the time to de-clutter your bedroom » ADVERTISING FEATURE Turn your bedroom into a relaxing retreat by utilising the storage space within -- from underneath the bed to the back of the bedroom door and surrounding walls. Your bedroom offers valuable storage space, and you can rid it of clutter with practical tips and innovative solutions. An organised wardrobe A great place to start your journey to bedroom bliss is by de-cluttering your wardrobe, one of the most challenging spaces in the bedroom to organise. Use a ''plan, sort and store'' approach to help tame wardrobe mess. Plan: Start the planning process by asking yourself what do you want to achieve from your new wardrobe? Do you want to create space for more clothes or do you want to cut the clutter and make it easier to access items? Sort: The next step is to sort your wardrobe. Did you know that 20 per cent of your wardrobe is used 80 per cent of the time? A handy tip to de-clutter your wardrobe is to take absolutely everything out and sort your clothes into two piles -- one pile of clothes that you want to keep and the other pile to give away. The next step is to group like items: bags, shoes, hats, scarves and ties, and store these together. Store: After sorting, the last step is to store all the items you want to keep back into your wardrobe. Why not start by creating an everyday essentials corner, where you can find daily items at a glance. A jumbo hanging organiser is a great way to keep everyday basics visible, and within reach. Don't forget your shoes. Storing shoes can consume a lot of wardrobe space. An extendable/stackable shoe rack will increase wardrobe storage, and special shoes can be kept in pristine condition with clear stackable shoe cubes. Under-the-bed storage This is a great way to minimise unsightly clutter. Tuck away infrequently used items with storage boxes, clearly labelling each box so items can be easily retrieved. Under-the-bed storage is also a convenient way to hide away seasonal clothes. Space bag cubes are practical and easy to use for storing winter jumpers during warmer months. Maximise bedroom space Take a good look at your bedroom -- are you utilising every possible space? Create more room with hanging shoe organisers. They are an ideal way to keep shoes and other small items off the floor, while over- the-door hooks are a nifty solution for holding dressing gowns, coats, bags and hats. You can also take advantage of wall space by adding floating shelves to house treasured items that inspire, add colour and create a homely atmosphere. For more useful tips go to hsw.com.au.
