​Accessories That Make The Decluttering Process A Dream

8th Feb 2023

There are many benefits of decluttering your home, including reducing stress, improving your productivity, and creating a more positive living environment. Letting go of excess belongings can also be liberating and allow you to focus on the things that truly matter to you. 

So whether it's the new year - new you, you've just moved home, or you simply feel a refresh is in order, a rejuvenating declutter of the home is the perfect solution.

When you decide to declutter your life, it can be a daunting task. It certainly isn’t one that fills everyone with excitement and anticipation. However, if undertaken with a strategy in place, it often turns out to be an enjoyable and even therapeutic activity.

So today we’ve compiled some tips to ensure the decluttering process goes smoothly. Plus, we'll take a look at some of the loveliest waste paper baskets, bins and storage accessories currently available in our store, because what better way to do it than with beautiful home accessories that make the process a dream!

Tips for Decluttering Your Home

1. Schedule some "me" time: Set aside specific windows of time for decluttering your home on a schedule that works for you and your lifestyle. For some this may be 30 minute bursts several times a week, for others it could be bi-weekly 4 hour deep dives. Put it in your calendar and make it a priority.

2. Set a goal: Take some time to sit quietly and think about what it is you want to achieve by decluttering your home. This may be creating more space, getting organised, reducing stress or changing the feel and style of your home. Having a clear goal in mind will help you stay motivated.

3. Start small: If you try to tackle everything at once you will most likely become overwhelmed and get stuck. Break the task down by focussing on one thing at a time. This could be one area of your home, or one type of item (like clothes or books). Once you've conquered that, move on to the next.

4. Be ruthless: When in doubt, throw it out! If you haven't used something in 6 months (or 1 year for seasonal items), chances are you don't need it. When something falls into this category we love using the Konmari method to decide what to keep and what to get rid of, which you can read more about here. Decide to welcome happiness into your year by surrounding yourself only with things that bring you joy

5. Be environmentally conscious: There are many ways to declutter your home without simply throwing things away. Consider donation, consignment, or even selling items online. 

6. Reward yourself: After all your hard work, treat yourself! Whether it's a new book, a manicure, some extra me-time, or some gorgeous new home accessories, make sure you give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.

Perhaps something from our soon-to-be-released recycling collection would be the perfect post-decluttering treat!

Now you have your decluttering strategy to hand, take a look at our favourite room accessories that make decluttering a dream.

Storage Containers

An aesthetically pleasing container is the ideal solution for storing unsightly items to maintain the clean, stylish look of your space. They come in especially handy in the bathroom, which can otherwise easily become cluttered with personal care products. Other items that often lend a cluttered feel to a house are umbrellas, so it’s ideal to give them their own dedicated space in a stylish umbrella stand.
