Spring has finally sprung, which means we can look forward to warmer weather, lighter evenings and beautiful blossoms.
It’s also that time of year when a good ol’ spring clean is in order. Love it or loathe it, a spring clean is a great way to freshen up your space, declutter your home and get yourself organised. It’s a job that simply needs doing, and you always feel so good afterwards.
To help you keep your home neat and tidy, we’ve put together a handy list of some smart storage solutions.
Shelving is a great way to free up floor space. Whether freestanding, wall-hung or modular, shelves can help you find a place for everything, and can be adapted to suit the way you live and the space you have.
The Gridy Funghi Shelf is a stunning floating unit from Norwegian designers Gridy. Inspired by the ‘shelf fungus’ that grows horizontally out of trees in the woods, these playful shelves look great in many rooms around the home, whether it’s storing books in the living room or displaying spices in the kitchen.
For something a little more versatile, you can’t go wrong with String Pocket Shelving. Designed by Nils Strinning in the 1950s, this shelf was built specifically for paperback books, but it can be used to store almost anything. The Spring Pocket Shelf mounts easily to the wall and can also be purchased in modular elements to create a larger compositions, making it a clever, expandable small-space solution.
If you’re looking for a modern and stylish shelving solution, the Cubist Shelf from Umbra is a great option. Inspired by Mondrian’s iconic compositions, this hanging shelf visually floats your favorite objects, and even includes a cute little cup for holding potted plants, pens and whatever else you need.
Another great way to save room is by bringing awkward corners and ‘dead’ space’ into use with smart storage solutions that hang from rails, on the back of doors, or in your wardrobe.
If space is at a premium, one way to keep your bedroom clutter-free is by using a hanging organiser, such as the Pocketa Hanging Organiser, which neatly and discreetly stores anything from towels to t-shirts.
You can also free-up some much-needed draw space by hanging scarves, belts or any other accessories on the Pendant Scarf Holder, which can be hung on the wall or in your wardrobe.
It isn’t just the major rooms in your home that can be decluttered; you can organise everything from your desk to your vanity table.
As the saying goes, ‘tidy desk, tidy mind’, and a fun and quirky way to keep your desk organised is with our Liverpool Wheelie Bin Desk Tidy - a miniature version of the unmistakable purple wheelie bins you find throughout the city.
Loose change is often among the clutter found around the home. However, our Pineapple Money Box is a funky way to store your spare change, and also happens to be bang on trend this season.
With these great solutions, you’ll have your home looking spick and span in no time. What are your secrets to an organised home?
