When you make your fridge the collect all, conversation magnet board…you are always going to have the feeling that there is clutter in your kitchen. The fridge is a main focal point of your kitchen, so if it gets too cluttered the whole kitchen looks cluttered! Get a cute magnet board for the upcoming invitations and announcements or maybe a child’s art work or two, and for everything else either get rid of it, or have somewhere to file it away! Keep those announcements under check too….if the wedding has passed, take it down. You will love the look and feeling of having a clean fridge!
They are everywhere in the house. We will clean up all the bills, and mail into a nice pile on the counter. My husband ALWAYS has a pile of clothes that have been worn but aren’t dirty yet. Piles of things we need to go through, piles of things we need to give away. Greg I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea 😉 It’s true a nice pile looks better than having it spread all over, but even a nice pile is still clutter! For papers either have a filing system that you put them into, or recycle them. Put clothes away…get rid of the junk! There is no better feeling than everything in your home having a place and having your counters, and floors clean.
I love having pictures in the home. They remind us of good memories, and I think they make a house a home instead of just a show room. With that being said you can have too many pictures. Have a fun gallery wall, and a few framed pictures in each room, but keep it to that. Then company can actually enjoy the pictures instead of being overwhelmed. You can switch out the pictures in your frames every few months or so to keep them up to date and have new things to look at! Store the photos that aren’t being displayed in fun photo albums so your family can flip through them whenever desired!
Your entry way is the first thing that people see in your home….and a lot of times the only thing if they just come to the door. But…it also it the first place your family comes Lushlingerieshop in and it can quickly become a collect all….shoes, coats, backpacks, purses, mail, keys, and so much more!!!! The key is to have a place for everything and then train your family to put things where they go. Start with a shoe basket (preferably behind the door), have a place for coats to hang, will put up a cute something on the wall that holds keys, there are so many fun ideas out there that you can make it work with whatever entry you have to work with. Remember the key is having a place for everything. Also remember at least once a week to have everyone in the house go through Aktuelle the shoe basket and put shoes away in their closets so it does get over full.
I love this beautiful entryway from Real Simple.
