How To Organize Your Home Like A Pro
If you've ever listed your home for sale, then you know that it needs to be immaculate. Not only can clutter backfire when you're staging a home to sell, but it can also indicate that your home isn't in top shape.
But let's be honest, between work and family responsibilities, it's easy for your home to get out of control. Whether you're looking to stage your home for sale or just trying to whip it into shape, here are some simple hacks for getting your house in order.
Take It One Room At A Time
Don't try to tackle your entire home at once. Organizing one room at a time is most efficient. Once one room is complete, your sense of accomplishment will motivate you to start on another. The more organized your home feels, the more motivated you'll be to keep it that way.
Declutter Living Spaces
It's easy to sweep dust bunnies under the rug when it comes time for staging a home, but you don't have to wait until you're ready to put your home on the market. Pack and store personal objects and throw away unnecessary disposable items. Organizing your living spaces now will make life much easier when you're trying to sell a home.
Tidy Closets & Drawers
If you think potential buyers won't peek into your closets and drawers – think again. They'll check them out to decide whether their belonging will fit. While you don't have to completely empty them out, pack and store all items except the necessities in these spaces.
To corral items around the house, use baskets. This is especially handy for families who have an abundance of stuff. Wide-woven, decorative baskets are great for hiding the clutter, while looking pretty and matching your interior décor and design at the same time.
Pare Down Items
When you're decluttering, don't make it harder on yourself by pulling every book and accessory out of your shelves or cabinets for a quick once-over. Organizing by color can make decluttering easier and faster and the end result much more visually appealing.
