With the new year starting, many people are looking for ways that they can work on minimizing the amount of clutter within their home. There are few things as frustrating as starting the year off with a house that is messy and full of junk, so we fully understand the need to tackle this project. Whether you’re wanting to completely eliminate certain items or you’re simply looking for a better storage solution, today’s blog is for you.

The team at Better Built Barns has proudly provided homeowners in the Washington area with high-quality sheds and detached garages for years. In today’s blog post, our team is going to cover a few of the things that you can do to minimize clutter in your home this year and how we may be able to assist you in doing just that; let’s get started.

Determine the Root of the Problem

Whenever you want to completely eliminate a problem, you need to focus on the root of the problem. With clutter, it can be a bit difficult to determine what the root of the problem is simply because it all comes down to it being a mess. With that being said, we suggest trying to figure out the root of the clutter that you’re going to be tackling. 

For example, if it’s your kitchen counter that you’re going to be working on, look at what the origin of the clutter is. Is it bills and mail that has piled up? Cords to electronics that have taken a life of their own? Or is it kitchenware that isn’t being stored in a cabinet. Once you’ve discovered what the base of the clutter is, you’ll be able to work on a solution that keeps this clutter from building up again. 

Organize Your Storage

There are various ways that our homes provide us with storage, but it’s crucial that you take advantage of them to avoid clutter in your home. Unfortunately, these spaces are rarely enough and can quickly become disorganized, which is how clutter often starts. If right off the bat you know that this is something that’s contributing to your clutter, some time spent organizing your storage is a must. 

This particular step of minimizing clutter can take form in a few different ways. From boxes in the basement to kitchen gadgets in your cabinets, organizing can help you discover items that you can live without and make additional room for other items. While this will rarely take care of all of your clutter, it’s a great starting place and does do quite a bit of good. 

Invest in a Shed

As we just finished mentioning, the storage that a house is built with very rarely provides ample storage for everything that we bring into a home. If you have a garage that is stuffed to the brim or your house is over cluttered with no additional room to store items, a shed could be just the answer you’ve been waiting for. 

A shed is a fantastic addition to a house that can provide you with the extra room that you need to keep your house organized. Whether you’re looking for a place to store your landscaping tools or you need some additional space to stack boxes, a shed can do just that. The best part about a shed is that it is out of sight and out of mind, but always there when you need a particular item. If you have specific things that you’re looking for in regards to some additional space, a custom shed can provide you with the perfect solution!
