So, the right way to begin with decluttering and organizing home and its living space is going step by step and taking one room at a time. Now, you must know the right strategy on how to declutter a room. The first step towards getting organized is a little inspiration to empower you to start the task.
Organizing a home is a daunting task which you would have definitely dreaded in the past but it can be made easier by following some of the strategies for organizing clutter. Some of the handy organizing tips that may help you in clearing the clutter from your living space:
A little inspiration is in order
You can begin by choosing an inspiration piece to help you get started. From this inspirational piece, you can choose your color palette, determining your primary and secondary (accent) colors. This is an insider trick that professional interior designers and decorators use, and it works!
By using a “Tuscan look” painting or photograph, pottery, or textiles (such as an area rug or tapestry) you will have a starting point upon which to build your room. This “trick” will give you a personal Tuscan color palette.
Declutter – clear the way
To set the stage and prepare your home for your new Tuscan style, consider a good purge of clutter. Clutter is the antithesis of Tuscan design. Pack away, sell, or give away anything that does not meet the simplicity and functionality test! You can also consider talking with cheap waste collection services in your area if you find your home too much cluttered.
Consider your options
Remember that the goal is to layer your home with welcoming Tuscan decor elements. Your plan should be to create a feeling of warmth, charm, and simplicity in every room of your home. Your “toolkit” will contain your vision of your Tuscan home, those lovely Tuscan colors, some well-chosen Tuscan furnishings and accessories, and determination and perspiration (which might mean a paintbrush and a trowel!).
Choosing where to begin
If your family/living room and kitchen are “open concept” and/or connected, this offers the perfect opportunity to instantly recreate your home in the Tuscan style.
Beginning with a smaller, less visible room, though, provides an opportunity to “experiment” with wall treatments and furnishings, and a bedroom can be less expensive to redecorate than a family room or kitchen.
What furniture, lighting, and accessories will you need?
Functionality is key, as is a rustic style to Tuscan decor. Think of wood, wrought iron, ceramics… “Simple and sturdy” rather than “fine and ornate”. It is not necessary (and indeed is not desirable) to fill your room(s) with items that “match”. They must, however, be functional pieces, and may even serve more than one purpose. A bench, for instance, may open up for storage. Quality and durability are key. You’re now ready to move forward and start transforming your home into a little bit of Tuscany!
