How to Organize Your Living Room

How to Organize Your Living Room

Living room organization is a challenge because the living room has so many functions. Given how many things they’re used for, it’s no wonder living rooms often end up full of clutter. Walking into any living room and you may see piles of mail, unread magazines, toys scattered about and exercise equipment. Here’s how to quickly organize this entire space:

 

Remove Foreign Items

Grab a basket or a bin and walk around the room. Pick up anything that doesn’t belong in your living room and put it in the basket. Return items that belong in another room to their storage spaces, then return living room items to their proper storage spaces. Also, take this time to throw out those dying flowers in the vase on the mantel, or any other trash you find.

 

Create a Home for Lost Objects

If you come across something that belongs in the living room but has no proper place, create one. So, if there are several remote controls scattered about the room, pick a convenient spot to gather them every time. The coffee table, the TV stand, it doesn’t matter exactly where, as long as the location works for you. What matters is from now on, the remotes will have a consistent home. Likewise, make sure that books, magazines and throw pillows have a home so they process your mail in the living room, have a container or file folder for that task handy.

 

Declutter the “Disaster Zone”

Most rooms have a corner, or a piece of furniture, that functions as the designated disaster zone even when most of the room is pretty well organized. If you have any major centers of clutter in your living room, like a certain end table that gets loaded up with random stray items, neaten it now. It will make the entire room look cleaner.

 

Get Nitpicky

A very simple step in the organization of any room that takes no  money, no products, and almost no time, is to simply straighten everything out and line it up. This is called “facing”. This goes for smaller items like books on your bookshelf, knick-knacks over the fireplace, and blankets folded on top of a chest, as well as chairs and tables. When everything’s askew it can make a room look far messier than it actually is.

 

Make a Plan

If the problem is something you can’t fix now, make a note to fix it at another time. You might spot some issues like this while you’re organizing – maybe stacking up your magazines made you see that a magazine rack would be a convenient addition to the room. Or perhaps you realized that having a recycling bin for newspaper, or a basket for cat toys, would keep your living room organized in the long term. Take a few minutes now to make futuer organizing plans.

 

Get Rid of Something

Now that you’ve decluttered, faced and straightened up your living room, it’s a good moment to [ick something and get rid of it. Let it go and free up some living room space. Your living room will look far from messy if you have the right decorations or accessories.
