6 of the best storage solutions for decluttering

Made the resolution to keep your home tidy and clutter-free? These storage solutions that help you achieve your goal easier by making sure everything has a home. So keep that mess at bay with these savvy storage options…

1. Kitchen trolley

If you feel like you’re constantly battling with kitchen clutter, rest assured you’re not the only one! When a busy life and not enough cupboard space conspire against you, worktops can quickly become cluttered. If you have the space, opt for a moveable kitchen trolley that can be wheeled around as needed. They not only look stylish, but will keep your clutter contained without looking messy and offer a little extra worktop space.

2. Stylish bathroom cabinets

Avoid your bathroom looking cluttered by investing in stylish bathroom cabinets, like these Levington designs from Argos. Opting for a matching vanity unit, mirror cabinet and tall unit creates a cohesive look, which keeps any mess at bay.

3. Storage bed

Bedrooms are a big culprit when it comes to creating extra clutter, with the need to store clothes and accessories to blame. To stop things getting out of hand, a bed with storage underneath is a great way to keep extra linens or your out-of-season wardrobe tucked away. With bundles of storage space, you can store a lot of your stuff that you don’t want on show.

4. Storage baskets

It’s often smaller items that end up creating the biggest mess. If you can’t justify investing in extra pieces of furniture to hide away your clutter then the odd storage basket or two is a great way of organising items in a stylish and on-trend way.

5. Hidden store-aways

Hidden storage is incredibly satisfying. Just take a look at this nifty pink velvet storage drum with a lift-off lid that reveals a decent amount of space to store away blankets, remote controls or anything you fancy! Pop the lid back on and you can use it as a footstool or small coffee table.
