When we think of decluttering our home, it generally means removing excess.
However, there are a number of design choices that can give the perception of clutter and an untidy space that can we can fix. And, no dusting’s required.
Laurel Niedospial for popcorn.com shares 7 ways you can give your home a clean and uncluttered look and feel just by altering design choices. Here they are:

Don’t Line Every Wall With Stuff . . . Allow For Openness


A post shared by Lulu and Georgia (@luluandgeorgia) on

There must have been an interior designer in the ’80s who came around to people’s homes and chastised them for leaving a wall devoid of furniture. This overstuffed approach, instead of making a room look rich and well furnished, makes the space feel like it’s busting at the seams. Think about what a room really needs, get that, and stop trying to jam furniture up against every wall. At the very least, it’ll be less you’ll have to clean and buy.


Until next time…
Blessings from my home to yours,
Dedicated to helping you create spaces that foster happiness and well-being
