No matter your interior design style, decluttering your home is a way to keep your living space clean, organized, and functional while improving your wellbeing and peace of mind at the same time. It is not about being obsessed by order and appearences, when your home is tidy and decluttered, you will feel positive vibrations all around. These 5 tips from our interior designer in Fuerteventura are easy to follow and can help you with your home decor/decluttering.
1 – Room by Room
There is no need to feel overwhelmed, decluttering will be easier if you go through one room at the time. Start from the living room, the room you usually spend most of your time time. Preparing a checklist can help you complete each task before you proceed to the next room: things to donate, things to sell, things to trash, things to store somewhere else. When you are happy about the result you can start decorating your living room again with the things you really need and love.
2 – The Rule of Three
Interior design and home décor is all about balance, symmetries, and proportions. Once the space is decluttered and tidy, you will notice that the more space a decoration or furniture has within the space, the more that object will become the focal point of the room. You do not need to create a minimal interior design style, you can simply use the rule of 3, meaning that every corner of the room will be decorated with 3 main decorative objects. It is a great way to approach your new interior decor and avoid cluttering the space again...
3 – Decorate your storage area
We always need extra storage units and storage solutions in the living room, bedroom and even the bathroom. An interior designer can help you both with your home design and custom-made storage solutions but if your space does not allow it, do no be ashamed of your visible storage area, use it as a display for decorations, vases, picture frames or objects that you love. Whatever furniture you use as a storage, only keep things you really need, keep it tidy and decorate it as much as you can. It will be functional and stylish at the same time.
4 - Remove what does not belong anymore
Take a big box and do not think twice… if it is too old and does not have a purpose anymore, it is time to remove it. We know it is hard to separate from some items that have been with us forever but if they do not make you happy anymore, just be honest and put it in the box. Those are the objects and decorations that most probably are cluttering your space the most. Old souvenirs, old appliances, old cushions, and blankets. It is time for a new beginning. Your home in Fuerteventura deserves a new interior design style.
5 – A new purpose
You would be surprised to know how much your home style can improve by simply rearranging furniture and giving a new purpose to it. Moving the sofa and the dining table to a new position will make your interior decor look fresh and new. If you are planning on buying new furniture after your home declutter, opt for a low sofa for example, to keep the space open and not obstructed. It is easy and quick to buy furniture online.
