Homes+ (Australia) - - BEFORE & AFTER - with Natalie Jane, of Be Or­gan­ised.

Cre­ate zones for your items and store like with like. Use all the stor­age you have and get cre­ative with it.

Use the backs of doors and go ver­ti­cal if you don’t have enough floor space. Make use of un­der-bed stor­age if nec­es­sary, for linen, off-sea­son clothes or sen­ti­men­tal items. Put items that you use of­ten in ac­ces­si­ble spa­ces. Things you use less of­ten can go up high.

Don’t over-stuff your cup­boards, draw­ers or wardrobes. Only keep items that you love and use.

Fold clothes length­ways in draw­ers. This will keep them tidy, or­gan­ised and easy to find. It also keeps them wrin­kle free and is a fan­tas­tic space saver.

Hang clothes in your wardrobe by sleeve length or colour.

Cre­ate stor­age next to your bed for books so they don’t get dumped on the floor. A lit­tle bas­ket is ideal.

Use a laun­dry bas­ket for dirty laun­dry to avoid a pile on the floor.

Make your bed when you get up. It makes your bed­room look tidy (even when it’s not) and there is noth­ing like the feel­ing of hop­ping into a beau­ti­fully made bed at the end of a long day.
