Gone are the days of collecting 2l and 5l plastic ice cream containers to organise your pantry or closets. Marie Kondo and The Home Edit team have totally transformed the way we view organising our stuff and decluttering our homes. So if you are looking to ‘spark joy’ or are ready to ‘improve the everyday with a unique blend of form, function, and fun,’ then your home is ready for a simple makeover using practical storage solutions that are fun, beautiful and affordable.
It’s not necessarily about having too much stuff or too little space. That is relative. It’s rather about embracing the concept of minimising your mess and loving your spaces by investing in home storage solutions that make sense to you.
Getting organised starts with knowing what you have and then sorting what you love and need – and perhaps donating what you no longer want or need – into a storage system that keeps everything in its place and accessible.
The wisdom of Winnie the Pooh author, A.A.Milne, applies: “Organising is something you do before you do something so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.”
Make organising fun
Life is too short not to have a little fun. And that includes committing to home storage solutions. If organising your home does not make you smile, you haven’t popped into Store & More where we showcase inspirational and innovative storage products that are designed to work perfectly in any room of your home.
Of course, when you are faced with the world of storage options – cardboard boxes, plastic containers, glass bottles and wicker baskets (inter alia) – it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. That’s why it’s advisable to start with one room at a time and one cupboard at a time. Rome wasn’t built in a day and organising your home is also unlikely to just take a day. So grab a friend to help, embrace the journey and enjoy every minute of it. (It will definitely be worth it).
Make organising beautiful
The reality of modern living is that urban apartments are compact spaces that often lack sufficient storage. Clever decor hacks often mean going for open storage solutions that put your stuff ‘on display.’
Open shelving is having a welcome moment in the world of interior design, but the overall visual success comes down to functional home storage solutions that are also beautiful.
This is the wonder of a store that has done the hard work for you: becoming your stylish storage muse. Simply choose the type of storage product that takes your fancy and which will suit your organising personality and individual home aesthetic.
Here are a few teasers to get you excited:
- Glass storage is ideal for kitchens
- Wooden organisers and bamboo baskets look gorgeous in bathrooms
- Clear plastic storage containers (or trunks, totes and roller boxes) are ideal for garages, kids’ toys, seasonal wardrobes and laundry spaces.
Make organising affordable
Store & More steps into the local retail gap pairing quality home storage solutions – either sourced locally or imported from Europe – with affordability. Our very own team of storage experts are on hand to help you find the perfect organisational solution for every space in your home.
A happy home is an organised home. (We believe there is the psychology to back that up). Shop by room and shop according to your budget to create a home that is not only organised but is so beautiful it will make you smile every time you step through the door or open a cupboard.
