As the old saying goes ‘We are, what we surround ourselves with’, so in order to work more efficiently keep your room clean an everything in its proper place.
- BASKETS BASKETS BASKETS!
Keep baskets everywhere. I repeat Everywhere! Need space for keeping those fruits? BASKETS. Don’t know where to keep your hot iron tools? BASKETS. Have lots of jewelry? BASKETS. Get cheap and attractive baskets on Amazon or Flipkart! Stores like Miniso Japan also have cute and very inexpensive baskets to keep your miscelleanous objects. Not only do they do a good job at hiding your unattractive things, they also give a nice look to your room and your room looks more organized!
- GlASS JARS
Remember the time your mom used to recycle those glass jam jars and used to keep different spices in that? Yes, you need to do the exact same thing minus the spices part! Glass jar are not only handy for storing things but they give a really classy feel to your space as if you really spent money (but we know you didn’t?). Use glass paint to simply design them and also use ribbons to make them look cute. Keep your Makeup brushes or your hair accessories in those glass jars! Also you’re helping the environment by recycling, so kudos to you for that!
If you have a small place use neutral colour furniture and fabric. Don’t go too overboard with the colours it will make your room look jam packed and we don’t want that! Use light coloured curtains and use pastels or neutral coloured bedsheet and sofa covers! And if you want a little colour use warm toned fabrics to cover your pillows and cushions.
This is a hack for those of you who have a really small space. Install a horizontal mirror on one of the walls this will reflect light making your room look a lot more bigger than it actually is! A plus point, it also gives your room a very polished look. You can get a horizontal mirror custom made from the local furniture shop or shop for one online!
- SECRET STORAGE
Use the space under your bed, sofa and other possible furniture that have under space. Things that you generally don’t use, store those things underneath. Keep your shoes or your warmer clothes that you don’t need on a regular basis. But also be sure to store everything in carton boxes so that things don’t look messy! These spaces really come in handy when storing things away!!
- FUNCTIONAL FURNITURES
Use furnitures that can be doubled up! A coffee table can turn into a dining table when you have someone for dinner! Having a small bed that can double up as a sofa. It will save you a lot of space plus you don’t have to spend extra on a sofa!
