Eight Tips to Help Declutter Your Home

Declutter your home

When spending time at home you may realize how badly it needs decluttering. Having things crammed into every corner is not an appealing way to live. (And, if you are planning on selling your home in the near future, a thorough cleaning and decluttering is a must.) Here are eight tips to make the decluttering process more bearable:

1–Paperwork
Paper here, paper there, paper everywhere. A few pieces of paper turns into piles and piles. Cleaning out paper is a page-by-page task. Have a discard pile for recycling and be sure to shred anything with sensitive info. If you have papers to keep, place them in a more organized order with a labeled filing system. Or, consider scanning important documents and keeping only digital copies.

2–Home Records
How organized are your home records? Have a binder that has your improvement records and receipts. Store warranties in those binders, too. (When it comes time to sell your home, you will have all of your documents at your fingertips.)

3–Closets
When you open the closet does something jump out? If so, it’s time to tackle one closet at a time. Be ruthless. If you have not used an item in a year, do you really need it? Why are you holding onto those 1990s clothes? Remember, even if they come back into style, color and sizes change. Be sure to donate clothing that is in good shape to a place like Good Will or another organization. Remember, less is more.

4–Pantry
Cans from the year 2010 are not a good thing. Check expiration dates and discard old items. While you’re at it, think about attacking the freezer for old items.

5–Basement and Garage
If your basement and garage are dumping sites, you made need to plan some time sorting through items. If these things are in your basement or garage and you are not using them, why are you keeping them?

6–One Room at a Time
Don’t let the clutter overwhelm you. Tackle one room at a time. Start with the messiest room first. You will have a feeling of accomplishment when that room is done.

7–Why Are You Holding onto Something?
Things can be functional and sentimental. If you are keeping something you do not regularly use, ask yourself why you need to have it.

8–Sell Items
You may be getting rid of household items that someone else might cherish. Consider selling unwanted things with Ebay or Facebook Marketplace. You will get rid of the clutter and make some money at the same time!

The Result?
By clearing out clutter now, you will enjoy your home all the more and it will be easier to maintain and clean. And, when it’s time to sell, your home will not only look more appealing to home buyers, but you will have less stuff to haul to your new home.

At Home? Read about these Affordable Home Improvement Ideas

PaintWhile spending time in your home, now may be the time to think about making home improvements. (And, this does not always mean breaking the bank!) Here are 10 cost-conscious ideas to make your home an even better place to live:

1 – Tile Backsplash
A backsplash in a kitchen or bath makes that room look more sophisticated. This project can be either DIY or hire a professional if you do not feel confident. Select tile that ties in the cabinets, counters and wall color. Learn more about backsplash options here.

2 – Paint
Paint is a very economic way to update your home. Consider painting one wall in a room with an accent color to add drama and a focal point. Or, paint the entire room with a fresh, neutral color. Light tan, grey and white are popular colors now.

3 – Trees
Trees look attractive in landscaping and can reduce your cooling costs in warmer months.

4 – Bathroom Sink
Replace your old bathroom sink and make your bath look more modern.

5 – More Bathroom Updates
Consider replacing the toilet seat or re-grouting tile.

6 – Kitchen Faucet Set and Cabinet Door Handles
Replace the faucet set with a more up-to-date version. Kitchen cabinets will look fresh with new handles.

7 – Replace Appliance Facades
Some kitchen appliances have facades that are replaceable. Contact the manufacturer to see if you can order panels that will create a cohesive look in your kitchen with an all-black, white or stainless look.

8 – Lighting Fixtures
If you have old, outdated fixtures, new lighting can make a room look fresh and up-to-date.

9 – Cover Basement Columns
If your unfinished basement has unattractive support columns, you can cover them with Pole-Wrap. This way, you can still use the space as a playroom or home office.

10 – Garage Organization
Organizing your garage will benefit in more storage space and room for cars. Consider adding a few shelves and plastic bins.

Buying a Home? How To Overlook Minor Blemishes

Young woman painting wall at homeWhen searching for a home to buy, keep your eyes open for possibilities when touring. If a home meets your price and location needs, it may require just a few modifications to suit your taste. Here are some tips about overlooking minor flaws and blemishes:

Old Homes
“Old” does not mean “bad”. Homes built many years ago have withstood the test of time. Many are well constructed with quality materials. Newer homes may offer more modern conveniences, but might lack that charm and character that an  older home offers.

Paint Colors 
Repainting a room is one of the most economic and easiest changes to be made to a home. Instead of focusing on the colors of a room, pay attention instead to a room’s structure.

Wallpaper
If you do not care for the wallpaper selection in a home, remember this can be fixed by removing, covering over or replacing it.

Kitchen Appliances
Do not discount a home just because the kitchen’s appliances are older. A kitchen appliance such as a refrigerator can be replaced as long as the item fits your budget. You many need to live with the old appliance for a while and save up for a newer one.

Dated Decor
The decor in the home may not be to your taste, but you like the floor plan.  The home’s furniture will be gone when you move in and you can decorate rooms to your taste and style. So, forget about the flowery curtains or that funky chair.

Carpeting
There are many different types of flooring available at all price points. If you cannot afford to replace carpeting with hardwood floors, then a laminate that looks like hardwood may be the answer. Keep this in mind when you are touring a home with ugly green carpeting.

Popcorn Ceiling
A ceiling specialist can be hired to scrape off the popcorn look from the ceiling. It is best done before you move in as it is a messy job.

No Curb Appeal
Perhaps the home just needs bushes trimmed, flowers planted or the front door painted. A lack of curb appeal might need just a little TLC from you!
