SMART STORAGE WIN THE SPACE RACE CLEVER WAYS TO DE-CLUTTER YOUR HOME Awkward areas are ideal for low dressers, cabinets or shelves, (pictured) a clever Ikea storage system. SPRING is the season to start de-cluttering your home. Whether it's tidying your overflowing wardrobe or clear- ing out the dreaded garage, there are storage solutions that can help maximise space and keep your home in order. However, rather than hiding items in boring baskets, dr- awers and boxes, be creative with your storage options. Open up the space under stairs and install shelves for books or display items. Awk- ward areas are ideal for low dressers, cabinets or shelves. And funky newspaper racks and colourful pigeonholes on desks dress up tired rooms. Good storage means looking for clever ways to increase and expand space you have without paying for an expensive reno- vation or extension. Life coach and Get Organized Wizard founder Michele Connol- ly says people should think of the process as a way of improving their lives. She recommends starting somewhere easy so you can take the success with you to more challenging spaces. ''If a whole room is daunting, begin with your wardrobe or even a drawer. If you feel ready to for some clearing the momentum will take you along,'' she said. The task could be an oppor- tunity to have fun by playing music or having someone to help you. NO LACK OF ROOM Easy laundry solutions from Howards. OPEN up the space under a set of stairs and install shelves for books or display items. Awk- ward areas in nooks are ideal for low dressers, cabinets or wall-mounted shelves. Maximise wardrobe space by utilising storage drawers, trol- leys, crates and stackable boxes. Built-in storage, such as win- dow seats, artfully combines form and function. In the bathroom, the wall space above the toilet cistern can be fitted with slim shelves to hold soaps and toiletries. Adding a tailored skirt to a table creates hidden and clever storage underneath. Every house has hidden space that can be cleverly used.
