A clean looking your home, and by that I mean, a house that isn’t full of unnecessary stuff is definitely a better looking home. As “Home Design Ideas” showed you in this post (“Minimalist decor Maximum beauty”) you don’t have to get every accessory in the world to make a nice interior decoration.

But having less stuff in a room will make you have less appropriate storage right? Well…wrong. Find here some tricks and tips that you can use to organize your home, get rid of the clutter and still have a great looking room.

Do you have a drawer full of many things?

Everyone in every house has a special drawer in which we throw everything in it: it’s the “ almost junk” place. It has to stop. Go to any home store and buy something that can divide your drawers. Create organized compartments and make sure that everything as a specific spot.

You can do it all over your home. Organize the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and  living room drawers. Organization must be a common theme of your home.

Be creative

Sometimes you have to get creative in order to find new places to store things. Do you have an empty wine rack? Do you have magazines laying around? Why not stack the magazines in the wine rack?

The space under your stairs is also empty? Do you need a place to store that box full of toys? See what you can do there and be creative. Sometimes you can find “empty” places that will do the trick.
