Cleaning is one thing and organizing is another, but both are important for cool and composed home. Here are some decluttering tips that’ll make you wonder how easily you can clear the mess in your house.
Short on cupboards? Get things out in the open. You can keep your everyday dishes against a well-marked chalkboard wall. The dark backdrop allows you to clearly indicate a home for each item, encouraging others to help restock once the dishwasher is finished. Draw outlines of shapely pieces if you’re the artistic type, or just say it like it is, with words.
Organize your drawer
So, you can’t stand the stress of a messy bedside table? You can keep things organized in compartments within the drawers of your side table, dressing and other tables. With the right setup, there’s a place for your remote, glasses, notepad, phone, and beauty ephemera, leaving the top free for lamp, book, and peace of mind.
If you have overly deep storage spaces that make it tough to grab anything but those sheets and towels right in front, Lustre Cleaning has a solution for you. Yes, the professional cleaning service Toronto offers exceptional decluttering and organizing services too. You can install rolling shelves that will maximize access, making it a pleasure to put away and retrieve folded stacks.

Keep All Essentials at One Place
Whatever the season, head-out-the-door essentials tend to congregate right where clutter is already at its peak—in the entry. Divvy up a galvanized tub into discrete compartments, using “walls” of foam core, for all the unfindables. In summer: sunscreen, goggles, and bug spray; in winter: mittens, gloves, and hats.
Note: Zippered nylon pouches offer grab-and-go convenience for different activities.
Playthings have a will of their own; they can’t stay pristine and still be fun. You can camouflage the chaos by stocking shelves with opaque containers labeled with graphic photos of what’s inside.
Have an All-of-a-Kind Drawer
You often don’t find things that are being used on rare occasions, where you keep them. That’s because you forget about them where you put them. For such things, like candles, scotch tape, paper cutter, small diaries and more, you can make separate place – a drawer with multiple compartments.
Small Appliances and Accessories
You can give a unified front to holiday decorations, art projects, rarely used small appliances—anything you want to hold on to but would rather not see. Keep a list on your computer indicating what’s in each box, and when you need something, do a quick search of the file.
Get Rid of the Papers
Well, not exactly! But you can eases the pain of paperwork by making it mobile. A rolling office lets you relocate to wherever the action is, so you can join the family, hang out by the TV, or even sit in the sunshine while you sort and file. Another plus: The limited surface space holds only essentials, preventing clutter and prompting you to recycle as you work.
Good news is, some Toronto cleaning services also offer complete decluttering and organizer services. So, call them if you run out of ideas.
