Don’t be a clutter bug, organize the store room
Are you hiding away from facing the mess in the store room? Are you piling up more and more dirt and broken things and making the area look ghostly? Creaking floorboards and moth eaten fabrics, or the peeling off paints, is this how the store room looks like. It is a high time that you pull up your socks and get ready to organize and clean the space for a refreshing appearance.
You can actually invite friends and close ones to help you with the chore and make it even more interesting. If you are walking around the house and introducing the guests to different rooms, why should store room be the one to be left out? So get together and cheer up yourself and the region.
You may require gloves, waste basket, mop, dry cloth and wipers, hose and some repairing instruments like a hammer, nails, tape and some others.
Review the store room
It is important that you step in first and look around to see how and where the things are. Make a list of all the items in the surrounding. Categorize them in the note if possible. Just look around for the damages and make a list of the repairs that needs to be done. Overflowing cabinets and pests may be common in the storage room. But you have to face the fact and continue towards your goal.
Take out the broken and useless items
It is important to declutter the store room. There may be many insignificant things that you may not be able to sue. Pile them up in a waste basket and throw them off. You may find some objects that you cannot utilize but surely, have a big heart and donate them to others. Segregate the wet and the dry waste separately.
Use boxes and labels
Use the list you have with you. Now take some large boxes and put the things in each one of them according to the category you want them to be in. Do not forget to label the boxes so that it is easier for you to find the stuff later on, not just take all the things out again, and mess it up further. Use tape to close the surface.
Clean the store room
Now take all the boxes out and get ready to clean the store room. Look out for any damp or wet patches. You may need to waterproof some of the areas. If all is dry and fine, bring brooms and a sweeper to take out the dust and dirt. If there are moth and mildew growth, you may require the cleansers for the same. Utilize vacuum cleaner and bristle brush to clean the fabrics and the floor. Hose down the floor and mop it with the cleaning solution to grant it a spick and span appearance. Let the store room to dry. Induce some scented candles to render a sweet smelling environment. Use room freshener to make the environment smell good.
Put back the boxes properly
Now that the store room is breathing life, put back the boxes in order. Remember not to clutter with the boxes. Use racks and shelves or cabinets to store them in an organized way. Place them in a way that you have enough space to walk around. Do not pile them one on top of each other to a height that you cannot reach. After everything is done, review the region for the last time. Now you have a clutter free area.
Decorate the store room
Now to make the store room look gorgeous, paint the walls with vibrant shades and deliver an exquisite appearance to the region. Wallpapers and even wall to wall carpeting is a good idea. You may induce some area rugs for the floors and make it go well with the theme you have chosen for the region.
