Moving into a new home in Denver is an exciting event. Not only do you get to decorate your home exactly as you want, but you have the excitement of being the first person to live in this new house. After you move in and unpack, you may find yourself wondering how to best organize your home. Clutter can take over quickly, especially right after moving, so take a look at this guide to staying organized in your new home.
Living Room Tips
Your living room is probably the center of activity in your home. As such, it is easy for clutter to accumulate. To make your living room more organized, avoid leaving items on coffee tables or on top of the television. Dedicate a weekend day to creating a simple filing system so you and your family can avoid making a mess of papers that are in the house. You can also minimize the clutter by organizing your photos into albums and hanging framed pictures on walls rather than displaying them all on a shelf.
Just as in the living room, it is important to keep the clutter in the kitchen to a minimum. You need valuable counter space to prepare and cook meals, and that’s difficult to do if there are grocery bags or random papers floating around. Organizing your recipes into a recipe box or three-ring binder can also cut down on the clutter. You’ll also be able to make room for new recipes by throwing out ones you haven’t made in some time.
You can save valuable closet space by utilizing storage in other ways. Consider rotating your seasonal wardrobes so only the clothes you’re currently wearing are in the closet, and store the rest in bins under your bed. Making your bed every day can also give your bedroom a more organized feel that translates to the rest of the room.
