How to Declutter Room: Tips from Home Organisers

Are you feeling overwhelmed by clutter in your room? Do you need a decluttering solution that works? You’ve come to the right place! In this comprehensive guide, we’ll show you how to declutter your room effectively, with tips from expert home organisers who specialise in declutter room services.

Also, we will explore decluttering home services and house declutter services, providing you with all the tools and techniques you need to transform your space. Say goodbye to the chaos and hello to a serene, organised room.

Professional Decluttering Home Services

Declutter Your Room

Decluttering your room can be a daunting task, especially if you’ve let things pile up over time. That’s where professional decluttering home services come in. These experts have a keen eye for organisation and can transform your space into a clutter-free oasis.

When you enlist the help of house declutter services, the first step is to assess your room’s current state. For example, they may ask questions to analyse what’s going on in your space. What are the specific functions of this room, and what do you want to achieve? The professional organiser will assist you in answering these questions.

However, if your room serves multiple purposes, such as a home office and a craft room, these experts can create a multi-use area that’s both functional and aesthetically pleasing. They can help you declutter rooms by determining what is essential to complete your tasks in that space. And what items are not part of the designated zones, which should find a home elsewhere in your house.

Utilising colour coordination is a smart strategy for a multi-use room. By designating specific colours for craft-related items and office-related supplies, you can easily locate what you need. Furthermore, consider going digital in your home office to save space, reducing the need for paper and opting for a more streamlined, digital workflow.

Declutter Room With Effective Organisation Strategies

Declutter Your Room

To declutter rooms, effective organisation strategies are important. The key is to maximise the use of your space. Here are some practical tips to help you declutter your room successfully:

  1. Utilise Wall Space

Bedrooms often become storage areas for items that don’t neatly fit on shelves. So consider adding hooks to your walls for storage that doubles as decor. This can be a great solution for storing hats, purses, and bags.

  1. Declutter Your Room Surfaces

Don’t forget to clear your bedroom surfaces, such as shelves and tabletops. Because reducing the number of items on display and finding better storage solutions for keys, wallets, and jewellery is vital for creating a serene and restful space.

  1. Take Advantage of Ceiling Space

Sometimes, out-of-the-way areas can provide unexpected storage space. For instance, clear containers near the ceiling in your closet can be a great Australian house decluttering solution. Again, labelling the containers will help you quickly identify the contents.

  1. Clear Out Your Dressers

Dressers can quickly become disorganised with mismatched socks and worn-out T-shirts. Therefore, regularly empty your dresser and use dividers to keep your items neatly separated. Additionally, rolling T-shirts is a great way to save space and find what you need quickly.

Expert Advice on Maintaining a Declutter Room

Once you’ve successfully decluttered your room, it’s important to maintain the clutter-free environment. So here are top recommendations from seasoned home organisers who specialise in house declutter services:

  1. Open Up Floor Space

Bulky furniture can make your room feel cluttered. So consider vertical storage solutions and floating shelves to clear off the floors. This not only creates an open look but also provides more room for movement.

  1. Pick Pretty Containers

Enclose loose items in stylish containers. For example, choose small, lidded boxes in various sizes to organise and decorate your surfaces. Ultimately, pretty containers help to declutter rooms, keep your personal items organised, and add a touch of elegance to your room.

  1. Pick a Multi-Use Nightstand

If your bedroom is short on space, opt for a nightstand that serves multiple purposes. For instance, look for a midsize dresser with ample surface space for nighttime needs and plenty of drawers for storage.

  1. Clear Out a Bedroom Work Space

If you use your room for work or hobbies, create a designated workstation to keep everything organised. Add a desk or convert a closet into a home office. In addition, use attractive containers for storing visible items and closed containers for paperwork and files.

  1. Purge Your Jewellery

Maintain an organised and clutter-free room by regularly purging your jewellery collection. For example, donate or discard items you haven’t worn in the past year and have damaged pieces repaired. Furthermore, use smart storage solutions to prevent tangling and loss.

  1. Stash Seasonal Extras Under the Bed 

Save valuable shelf and storage space by using under-bed storage for seasonal items. Look for beds with drawers or use decorative containers to declutter sweaters, shoes, coats, and more.

Susie:

Faith, Family, Culture with Luke and Susie. And  Beth got in touch with us and sent us a message saying, What are people’s top tips for organising a small office or craft space?

Luke:
So, we love to respond to your questions and thoughts. What’s going on for you? That was done via the Luke and Susie discourse, which you can check out online at the website or the social media. This is one thing that came through, very important, because it’s often one of the smallest rooms, but often one of the most important rooms of the house. That might be the craft room, it might be the office, but it’s usually a three-by-three metre room or less. But you’ve got to maximise the space because there’s a lot going on. To start with, we’ve instilled expert advice on this.Susie:

We have Bonnie, Little Home Organised. How are you?
Bonnie:
Good, thanks. How are you? 

Susie:

Good, thank you. Now, I’m assuming because she’s put in a small office or craft space, it’d be good to get a couple of answers from you, if that’s possible.
Luke:

Yeah, so let’s do it in two separate ones. Which one do we want to start with, the office or the craft space?
Susie:

Yeah, but then I also thought, what if someone actually has to have the same room for both the office and the craft space?
Luke:

Maybe we’re overthinking it. Let’s see what you’ve got to say. It’s often the smallest room in the house, but we need to make use of it. Bonnie, what do we do? What are the key things?

Bonnie:

Okay, well, it’s not that unusual for people to need to use spaces for multiple purposes and to have a fairly decent size desk that you can use for office purposes as well as the craft room, it’s not that unusual. So, I think we’ll address it as a multi-use area because it sounds like that’s what it is. So, the first thing to do is to actually sit down and analyse what is going on in that space. What is Beth using it for? What activities is she doing there and what does she need to be there as part of that?
So, once she sits down and makes a bit of a plan and an analysis of what’s going on, then she can really work towards what she needs to do with the space. So, the next step is really to work out what is essential to completing those tasks or those activities in that space. And anything that’s not essential to that purpose or is not part of the craft zone or is not part of an office zone really needs to find a home elsewhere in the house.
Susie:
I love that. That’s great. 

Luke:

Was that move stuff or chuck stuff out? That sounds a little bit over the top to me.
Bonnie:

Yes, I know you like to hold onto things, Luke, but most people have stuff they need to get rid of.
Luke:
Hey, look, I have this reputation as the hoarder. My wife refers to me as the hoarder, but I can tell you that stuff that just stays around, at least my things have practical use.

Susie:
Mine’s memorabilia stuff like photos. That’s what you’re talking about.

Luke:

And yet and yet my keeping of my beard was not on your list.
Bonnie:
Oh, it’s so gross.
Luke:

Honestly. Let’s get back to Beth. Let’s get back to Beth. We’re going to get rid of some staff. But are there some generic, I guess, overarching rules that would help Beth to organise that space?
Bonnie:

Yeah, absolutely. If it’s a multi-purpose zone, using colour coordination will actually help with the storage side of things to know what’s craft related and what’s office related. Another thing would be going digital instead of using paper in the office. That would save a lot of space as well. Just making sure that things are in clear, maybe colour-tinted label boxes so that she can know what she needs to grab and where it is quite effectively. Boxes stuck really well and being clear, they’re easy to see through, and the labels will just help with that as well. There’s quite a few steps to make sure that it’s a functional and practical space, but it’s absolutely achievable.
Luke:

Something like pink lids for the craft and black lids for the office or something on the containers, which just colour coordinates which one’s which.

Bonnie:

That’s a very psychedelic sounding office look. 

Susie:

Isn’t it?
Luke:
I went for black, so I didn’t stereotype the pink and blue to get it.

Susie:

Okay. I’m really liking this idea. I do have one more question for you, though. We’re going to talk a little bit more with Bonnie, a Little Home Organised next. 

Faith, Family, Culture with Luke and Susie, we are answering Beth’s question today. Beth was talking about organising the office space and/or craft space. And a Little Home Organised, Bonnie is joining us to talk about it. Now, Bonnie, the question that I have is, what about if you’re in a space that has zero storage to start with? What are the best uses of space as far as creating storage? So, it’s a blank room, no cupboards, nothing.
Bonnie:
It depends on your budget because you could go anywhere from stock standard storage from Ikea and those places to a full-on cabinet-maker fit out. So, it really depends on your budget. But once you know what your budget is, work within those guidelines. So, if you’re talking about someone who’s really trying to scrimp and save, you can find a whole lot of stuff on the street at Curbside Collections that you could put into place for your storage units.
You could go to places like Recycle World and the Tip Shop and find really cheap, good items. Places like Gumtree often have freebies to give away that are perfectly usable, but someone else just doesn’t want them and it’s not worth their time to sell it. So, there is bargaining out there to be had, but it’s all about working within your budget and making sure that you have a plan in place rather than just randomly picking up stuff, putting it in, and seeing how it works. So it’s more about being organised and prepared before you actually go and purchase. 

Luke:

That’s the name, Little Home Organised. Let’s say you’ve got a three by three room that needs to be office and craft space. This is you. And we’re not worried about the budget at this particular point for this question. No storage in the room. How much of that room do you dedicate to storage that can be locked away versus what you leave for desk and open space?
Bonnie:
Well, Luke, I always approach things from a minimalistic point of view. I love having a clear desk, so I would be utilising as much cupboard and storage space as possible. And the great thing about craft rooms is there are so many ideas on Pinterest for setting up dowel rolls so that you can access all your ribbons about having to get them out of a box. So, if someone is setting up a craft room, Pinterest is really the Mecca for them to go and find all the ideas that will work for them.

 

But it’s all about how much stuff you actually have and need to put in that space because some people, their craft room is very minimalistic, and there’s other people, which is most of the population who have craft rooms, have a lot of stuff. So it’s all about how much you’ve got, how accessible you want it to be, and you can work your storage around that.
Luke:

For me, a craft room would be code for a place where I stuff things that I don’t know where they go.
Bonnie:

Yes, and that’s probably code for a lot of people, too.
Luke:

Hey, we really appreciate your time in answering Beth’s question. A Little Home Organised as our guest. Thank you so much.
Bonnie:

Thank you, guys.
