Clever ways to clear clutter
It’s time for a spring clean, so look for furniture that doubles as storage to help you hide that clutter
With spring set to arrive next week, what better time to clear out unwanted items in the home and find new ways to improve your storage space.
Focus on Furniture stylish Melissa Gullifer said there were quality furniture pieces with built-in storage solutions to suit every room in the house.
“If you are decorating a lounge room or living area, look for entertainment units with suitable storage drawers,” Ms Gullifer said.
“Think about what you would put in there and check the height and width of the storage space so you can fit all your electrical and entertainment devices.”
She said opt for coffee tables, lamp or side tables with in-built storage drawers.
“It’s a clever way to shop because you are looking for specific pieces of furniture that are not only great quality, but offer the perfect storage solutions for your home,” she said.
“Buffets are so functional and it’s amazing how much you can actually fit in the cupboards.
“Most buffets provide generously sized cupboards and adjustable shelves with plenty of room to store tableware, napery, cutlery, glassware and more.”
When it comes to storage in the bedroom, Ms Gullifer suggested shopping for beds with built-in drawers and shelves.
“Beds with built-in drawers are a smart choice for people who have small to medium-size bedrooms,” she said.
Functional beds with storage drawers at the foot of the bed are a great option, as often they were large enough to fit in bulky items.
“It’s a clever way to hide clothes, blankets, cushions, sheets and pillow cases,” Ms Gullifer said.
