Decluttering Your Space

An organized bedroom

Many of us will swap out decor as it goes out of trend, but do you actually get rid of your excess decorative items? The first step to decluttering is eliminating duplicates. And just like with downsizing furniture, you can sell these extra items for a little cash. For example, you may swap out your shower curtain as you get tired of the style. Get rid of that old item, instead of letting it take up space in a box.  Unless you have several bathrooms in your home, you don’t need two shower curtains. Eliminating everything from extra towels to unused kitchen appliances is a great start to reducing the amount of stuff in your home. Learn more about decluttering your home here.

Vertical Storage

While most Brooklyn residents don’t have the square footage to spare, vertical space is often underutilized. By using wall space, you can add both style and function to a room. For example, tall bookcases, high shelves, and pegboards are great ways to maximize vertical space. If you own a stylish bike, skateboard, or other hobby-gear, display it as an art piece and functional fixture in your home. You’ll save floor space and show off your personality to your visitors.
