Let’s look at some of the best ways to get that junk out of your home.

Great Ways To Reduce Clutter In Your Home

  • Out With The Old In With The New – A great way to reduce the amount of clutter in your home is to have a yard sale. Being that it is summer we are well into yard and garage sale season. Your clutter is someone else’s treasure.
  • Kick It To The Curb – Your goods that are still good can be given away to neighbors or people passing through your neighborhood. Add a free sign and the mobile treasure hunters in your area will find your stuff.
  • Let The Bidding Begin – Online auction sites like Ebay is a great place to list your goods for sale. One of the benefits to using these sites is you won’t have tire kickers visiting your home to only browse your goods.
  • A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed – The eye sore in your home may be the apple of someone else’s eye. Offering your old home decorations to friends and family is a great way to reduce your clutter. It also keeps the circle of friends close.
  • Toll Free Junk Removal – Not all of us have access to pickup trucks or want to spend our free time at the local dump. Give one of your local junk removers a quick call and have it all hauled away.
  • Donate It To Your Local Charity – A lot of local families and charities are in need of household goods. Not only will you clear your home of clutter but you will also help someone locally who needs a hand.
  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – Feeling a bit crafty these days? Finding ways to re-purpose your wooden furniture is not only fun but it can turn into big business for you. The re-purposed furniture market is ultra trendy these days and you maybe able to sell those goods for more than you originally paid.
  • Sometimes Trash Is Just Trash – Sometimes there is not way around it. That thing you fell in love with in the nineties just has to go. The trash is the most permanent way to rid your home of clutter.

A TV Stand with shelves can double as an entertainment unit and library. An end table with a lamp can double as a bar. You just have to get a little creative with your living room ideas for small spaces.

Below we have put together five life savers we have used when we had to decorate a smaller space.

5 Tips To Furnishing A Small Apartment Living Room

  1. Measure And Measure Again – Space truly is the biggest issue to deal with when furnishing a small living room. Make sure you not only know the dimensions of the furniture your are buying but also know how how big the door to your building is, the size of your elevator, and also your front door. A lot of people who are new to living on their own forget to check these before they buy furniture.
  2. Less Is More Beautiful – Clutter is for hoaders! and you don’t want to be a hoarder right? One of the best ways to open up your small living room is to buy functional storage. A trendy shelf with some bins or baskets will get the clutter into a safe hiding place and keep you off your friends and families radar.
  3. Place Furniture On The Outside Walls – When floor space is limited you need to feature it. One of the most important tips we can give you when decorating a small living room is to push your furniture to the outside walls of the room unless you are dividing two living spaces.
  4. A Mirror Here And A Mirror There – A mirror on the wall can almost double the feel of the living space you are living in. So why not add a couple. They will give your guests the perception that the room is a lot bigger than it actually is. They will also make your small living room feel a lot brighter and more inviting.
  5. Can’t Paint? No Problem – I think most apartment building owners shop at the same place for their paint. It’s usually not quite white, not quite brown, and not quite appealing. To make matters worse most leases won’t let you paint. To liven up the living room its a good idea to add color and texture to the room. One of the fastest way to bring a room to life is with a classy vase and some fresh flowers.
