Organise every room in your home

Just like a clear inbox can make you feel more efficient, a well-organized home can help boost your productivity levels.

The entrance

Your entry area is the first thing you see when you walk in the door after a busy day. It really pays off to create a pretty and functional space.

Be curious about your clutter. Take the time to examine what gets dumped in your entry, you can create an easy inventory of the items that require a storage solution.

Have a landing station. A pretty ceramic dish is great for tossing keys, cell phones, and loose change.

The bathroom

Bathroom storage is generally quite limited, so it's important to not overstock your space. Try using bathroom storage for everyday essentials only, and relocate seldom-used items to a storage closet.

Store fewer, better products. Invest in beautiful products you love, and use them up completely before purchasing new products so your bathroom doesn't turn into a graveyard for unused products.

The kitchen

At first glance, your kitchen should look clean and clear—just like a chef's kitchen. Countertop accessories are nice, but try to keep them to items that are also useful.

Cut counter clutter. Take a few minutes to relocate what doesn't belong in the kitchen and make sure to assign a permanent home for items like mail or current work projects that get dumped on your counter and turn into stacks of clutter.

The bedroom

It is commonly said that making the bed sets the tone for the day—just as a streamlined, stylish space is a must to help you to rest and relax after a long day.

Clear your nightstand completely and wipe down for a fresh start. Relocate any unnecessary or misplaced items, and stock your nightstand drawer with only the essentials: Reading glasses, current books or magazines, lip balm, hand cream, or anything else you like regular access to before sleep.

The closet

The first step to having an organized closet is to let go of the superfluous. If your closet is stocked only with items that feel great and work for your lifestyle, getting dressed in the morning will be a piece of cake.

The lounge

What do you do in your living room? How do you want to spend your time? It helps to think through what activities you want to do so you can organize for your lifestyle.

The dining room

Dining rooms seem to be either a magnet for clutter or overly formal and neglected spaces, but if every other space is well organized, there shouldn't be a need to store non-related dining items here. By making a conscious effort to make this space as practical and clutter-free as possible, you'll actually use your dining room the way it was intended.
