The one thing you look forward to doing after an exhausting day at the office is to rest and relax in the comfort of your home.

But a messy home, with pots and pans, books and toys and every other object imaginable strewn all over the floor and countertops hardly makes for a “home sweet home”.

But fret not, this article spills some secrets on how to cleverly hide the clutter in every part of your home.


One of the things that cause a bathroom to look messy is when you place your toiletries and makeup on top of your sink.

For more storage space in the bathroom, we suggest you install shower curtains with pockets on them. This allows you to organise your sundries according to your usage needs.

It’s a real challenge to keep your kitchen organised and clutter-free because of the many utensils and cooking materials.

Many experts suggest storing raw cooking ingredients like sugar and spices inside wall-mounted cabinets to completely utilise every inch of kitchen space. You can also hang your pots and pans on the wall.

You can have more storage in your bedroom by installing a bed frame with storage underneath.

Storerooms are often treated as dumping grounds. Things that you are unsure what to do with always find their way into the storeroom, making these spaces one of the easiest to clutter up.

First of all, get rid of everything you don’t use in your storeroom. Yes, it is as simple as that. Anything you haven’t used in the past six months doesn’t belong in your storeroom.

Next, organise things according to categories. Label boxes so you don’t have to rummage through your storage to find something.
