Keeping your apartment clean and clutter-free can be a real challenge. With these eight creative ways to declutter your apartment, you’ll keep your space clear and ready for any activity.
Declutter Your Media
One of the first places where clutter can build up is your media cabinet. Declutter old DVDs and CDs you no longer use to free up your cabinets.
Cut Back on Books
Nothing makes a home look more cluttered than a bookcase crammed full of your favorite novels. Get rid of some of your books and put in some exciting bookends or accessories to make your shelves look ready for the next big thing.
Free Up Tabletops
You should use desks, dressers, and end tables, but are you using yours too much? Having unnecessary stuff on the top of your tables can make your space look cramped, so trim out the excess.
Use Those Cabinets
It may be easier to keep your toothpaste and facewash on the bathroom counter, but it can cause things to look much dirtier than they are. Put away the toothpaste and accessories in your cabinets when you have company, and things will look tidy.
Clean Out Your Closet
Be honest, when’s the last time you went through your closet and got rid of ratty old jeans or pit-stained tees? Go through your closet again and get rid of the things that no longer serve you.
Keep a Free Drawer for Projects
If you’re the type that likes to work on projects, having a designated spot to put them away will make your space look tidier. Create a place to put away your projects when it’s time to shift focus.
Create a Cleaning Routine
If you notice that your space becomes cluttered often, schedule 10 minutes a day to devote to tidying up. The time will fly by, and over a week, you’ll have a much better grasp on the clutter in your space.
Invest in Furniture With Storage
Investing in furniture with more storage space is one of the most creative ways to declutter your apartment. Look for benches that can hold your shoes or end tables with storage for your blankets to cut down on clutter.
Clutter doesn’t just look bad in your place; it can also negatively impact your mental health, and your mental health matters. So get started on decluttering your space today!
