How to prepare for your downsize:
You never realise just how many things you have until you have to move house – especially if the house you’re moving into is a smaller one.
While downsizing can be a decor challenge, it can also be a great opportunity. By getting rid of some of your old clutter you can free up your space and finally do that spring clean you’ve been thinking about for ages.
In fact, if you do it right you can make your smaller space feel larger than your old one!
Follow the steps below to learn how to organise, declutter and decorate your new home to make it look and feel twice the size.
How to declutter (without throwing things away):
Downsizing does mean you’ll have to whittle down the list of things to take with you. However, it does not mean you have to throw cherished or useful items away.
Self-storage, sale and donations are all great options which don’t have to end with things you once loved in the bin. Send them on to a new home (or store them away from yours) for instant decluttering that doesn’t pull on the heartstrings.
