Decluttering your home’s dual-purpose spaces: here’s how

Ideas and inspiration just in time for spring cleaning

With today’s remote working and learning, you’re likely spending more time than ever at home. And like many, you may be starting to dread your dual-purpose spaces: The kitchen table doubling as a Zoom boardroom, or a home office space now a shared classroom, too.

But, here’s the good news: Decluttering in time for spring is a great way to transform your space, bringing with it a new sense of tranquility. After all, a tidy, organized space does wonders for a peaceful and calm atmosphere – something we could all could use right now!

To make the process even easier, Langley’s Valley Direct Furniture boasts one-of-a-kind furnishings to help you reimagine and reinvent your home.

Looking for a few tips and tricks for tidying up your space? Valley Direct owner Liam Horner shares four:

Furnishings with additional storage are the perfect place to neatly tuck away extra belongings!

Furnishings with additional storage are the perfect place to neatly tuck away extra belongings!

  1. Clear up with cabinets: Bringing cabinets into your home is a great way to organize your belongings, while staying stylish at the same time. A quick tip if you’re using open-concept cabinets – make sure you take advantage of baskets and boxes to hide the clutter!
  2. Free up space with a gallery wall: While there’s no shame showcasing all your favourite memories, table tops filled with picture frames can look messy. Instead, opt for gallery wall to exhibit all those fun times! Doing so declutters tables, shelves, nightstands and dressers while also creating space for more functional items that will contribute to a relaxed environment. Try adding table lamps or coffee table books for a well-lit, organized area.
  3. Furnishings with storage: Using furnishings that offer additional storage is a great way to hide any mess! Investing in furniture that can double as storage, such as Valley Direct’s Post and Rail Coffee Table (a coffee table with drawers so your TV remotes can be neatly tucked away) or a bed frame with drawers like their Irondale Storage Bed (giving you extra space for heavier clothes you might not use during warmer weather) is a great way to maximize storage.
  4. Creating space with sectionals: “A popular choice with families right now is a sectional. It offers more seating for a smaller space than a sofa and love seat might for example, and is a great option for cozy family seating,” Horner explains. Their Bronx Sectional is a best seller.
