At Holmes Estate Agents, we are pleased to say we have helped many people present and improve their home over the years. Decluttering a house is a fantastic way to add space and make rooms look better.
Of course, you don’t need to be in the process of selling or letting your home to benefit from decluttering. Therefore, if you are keen to declutter your house to create more space right now, we are here to assist you.
Have a goal to aim for
No matter what you are doing, tasks become easier if you have a goal to aim for. When you have a destination to reach, you can measure your progress, and you can see how well you are doing. This is as relevant for decluttering your home as any other task or activity.
Know how you will reach this goal
When it comes to decluttering, there is no set way to work. What works for some people and families might not be of benefit to you. Therefore, you need to consider how you will be most productive during this time.
Some people prefer to focus on a single room at a time, and others prefer to do one task around the house. Find whatever works best for you, and focus on working that way.
Give yourself a deadline
When you have a deadline in place, you are more likely to be productive. Even though we have more free time at home right now, it makes sense to set a deadline, and aim to finish the decluttering work by this point.
Do you have the right equipment?
You don’t need a lot of equipment to declutter a house, but you will need some items. Boxes and bin bags are useful for storing items, and then removing them. You will also want cleaning equipment to ensure the house looks fantastic.
How are you getting rid of items?
While many people like to pass items on to charity shops, this might not be a solution you can rely on right now. Most charity shops have temporarily closed. You will also find many local authorities are not operating waste or recycling centres.
Therefore, your options are limited, but you might be able to find solutions that help you declutter while helping others. A lot of community groups on Facebook require items to support people in need in your area. By decluttering and passing on items you no longer need, you could help others.
We have considerable experience and expertise in the South West of London. We have helped many vendors prepare their home for sale, and we are happy to advise if you need our assistance. If you have any questions regarding the South West London letting market, please get in touch with Holmes Estate Agents today.
