Keeping clutter to a dull roar is difficult, especially in the living room and more social areas of the home. Whether watching TV or doing crafts, talking to loved ones or reading, the living room is the activity center for many homes. This, unfortunately, means that it’s also a hotspot for clutter. Thankfully, there are some useful tips for keeping your living room clean and inviting.
1. Minimize Or Move Clutter
Magazines and books tend to pile up, so making sure to stay vigilant about recycling and storing these items is important. Ensuring that the space is clean and welcoming for visitors and not overly crowded with blankets, toys, shoes and books may just be a matter of making sure that items are returned to their proper locations elsewhere in the house.
2. Proper Storage
Keeping newspapers, magazines, toys and loose items organized will make your space look and feel a lot more accessible. With the right storage systems, it becomes much easier to clean rooms and to maintain that cleanliness. Baskets, magazine racks, trunks and tubs to slide under furniture are all great forms of storage that you can hide or even incorporate into the overall design.
