6 Ways to Creatively Organize Your Living Room
There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing an organized living room. Agree? However, considering the busy schedules we have at work or school, maintaining a clean and organized environment might be a little bit demanding. As a result, we usually have a messy room. We definitely don’t want to embarrass ourselves, especially when there are unexpected guests. Right? It don’t matter whether you are living in a condominium or any other real estate properties, there is no reason for you not to tidy things up on your living room.
However, if you are too busy enough do all of the cleaning and organizing, below we list down some ways on how to organize your living room efficiently and creatively without taking a lot of your time.
6 Tips to Organize your Living Room effectively:
1. Welcome the Wastebasket
Wastebasket comes in handy especially when there is too much clutter in the living room. If there are things that are not in use, you can immediately throw it away. Most wastebaskets are not attractive and can smell bad. However, you can always purchase and choose a basket that would also fit the living room’s decor.
2. Keep Flat Surfaces Clutter-Free
Things that are not in their proper places are considered clutter. The papers, books, brochures, magazines and other things must be put in their proper places every after use. With this, it will save a time de-cluttering or arranging the things found in the living room.
3. Control Out-Of-Control Cords
Cords are a big factor that contributes to a messy living room. Of course, they can damage the beauty of the place. To organize your cables, you can use a cable yo-yo, which neatly coils up to six feet and comes with an adhesive backing that sticks to nearly any surface. You can also use a cable zipper, which encloses all the wires in a tube. With the utilization of these cable organizers, you don’t have to worry about ugly cords sticky out.
4. Create a Play Zone
Kids love to play around the house – living room is not an exception. As a result, you will expect a messy and dirty living room. However, if you have a spot in your home designated for play zone, then you might minimize the clutter around the house.
5. Coffee Table Functionality
Sometimes, we tend to forget that we have a coffee table at home due to the messy things around the table. That means you have to reassess its organizational capacity. If you think that you have too many books, magazines, or papers, then it is time for you to consider low storage cubes, rolling baskets or bins to stick under the table.
6. Curb Your Collectible Enthusiasm
Having our personal collection is nice. However, if you are not careful, this can contribute to the clutter in your living room. If you have too many collections, you can cut it down into half by putting half of the pieces into an appropriately sized container and storing it in a hall closet.
The living room is one of the most important rooms at home. It is where we usually make good memories with our family and friends. It is also where we welcome our guests or visitors. That is why, we need to make sure that our living room is clean and organize at all times.
