SORT YOUR CLUTTER FOR GOOD
More space More organised More peace of mind
1 Decide on the cupboard’s main purpose. If you need it to serve as a stacking spot for any unsightly kitchen items, such as brooms and mop, take out everything else and find a new home for it. If it’s going to be where the vacuum cleaner and ironing board live, make sure you can get them out easily.
2 Take everything out. Not only will this give you the chance to sort as you go, but you can also have a good look at the space. If you decide the interior needs a lick of paint, try a washable option like Dulux Luxurious Silk, from R179 for 1ℓ, Builders Warehouse, making it easy to wipe off scuff marks.
3 Use hooks. Make the most of wall space and the back of the door to hang things up off the floor, putting items like vacuum-cleaner heads in tote bags. Buy a hook for your ironing board to get it out of the way, such as the Vormann 851000
EDI Hook, R22, Builders Warehouse.
4 Go for moveable storage.
Trolleys are ideal for housing things, and they’re easy to pull out so you can access things behind them in a jiffy. Buckets can house cleaning bits and are quickly lifted out of the way.
