Home storage in Bangalore – Tips and tricks

Before you go on to read this week’s new blog post, I would like you to keep this statement running in your head like a teleprompter.

“Keep. It. Simple. Silly.”

The idea of living simple is very difficult to fathom for a human being. We human beings are made up of wants that will not cease. Yet we must try and adopt the art of minimal living. In your daily routine, you are barraged with colours, objects and ideas that create a clutter in your mind. If you’re living the city life, the hustle and bustle of it really takes a toll on you. Also, if you ever visited the city of Bangalore, you live half of your life stuck in traffic cursing your luck.

Therefore, in order to keep a calm mind, you must adopt the minimal route. Well, what better place to do it than to begin with home storage in Bangalore. Bangalore, the evergreen IT city is known for its swanky yet spacious apartment space. But did it ever occur to you that you might not actually be using your apartment space to its full potential? Fret not! We have got you covered on that.

Take few post its and memorise these golden rules of minimalism.

  1. You have less mess to clean up.
  2. You shop less and save money.
  3. You make your life simpler.
  4. You get the space you paid for.
  5. You are at peace.

CHALK OUT A PLAN

When you look at your room, a tug-of-war goes on in your head on things that need to be kept or thrown out, also the constant need to go and shop is where clutter slow accumulates within your home. Therefore, it is essential to draw out a plan. Home storage in Bangalore can be easily done, if you plan right and systematically.
Alright then! Everything in your home will have a spot; it may not be currently there, but you will find or make space for said good. Sometimes, we over buy or own three to four similar products. For e.g. you recently bought two beautiful knives but you tend to be greedy and buy the whole set including a cleaver that will most definitely won’t be used at all. In other cases, we get attached to things, because maybe it is attached to some joyous memory or gifted to us or may be it has just helped you in some way. I tell you for a fact, if it is just lying around there, you need to cut the apron strings and dump it. There is no shame in that. You are cleaning a house that occupies an entire family, so evaluate, edit, keep and then store, and always remember to MAKE A PLAN – FOLLOW IT – #MANTRA

DE-CLUTTER ROOM BY ROOM

So now your plans are more or less set, it is time to go about ironing out and keep just what you need.

YOUR KITCHEN

This divine place is the heartbeat of the house. You can have long conversations, gossip while cooking sumptuous meals for your family. A full tummy is a happy mind. Before you cook your dinner, it is always inviting to see a clean and organised kitchen. So begin with the Tupperware or containers, which are old and never used, strip down your cutlery and see what makes the grade. Buy a small basket and place your cups, spoons, forks, ladles all in it. Add adjustable dividers in drawers; install panels to keep your spices and other flavouring additives. Keep the plates, above the sink in a cabinet. Finally, do a regular clean-up of things inside your kitchen. Add colour maybe, it will surely bring a smile on your face.

YOUR BEDROOM

This room speaks loudly about your personality. Open your cupboard/closet, have a gander at the overflowing clothes that just came crashing down on you. Hello, are you listening? If you step back for a minute, you will see that most of the clothes you buy will never be worn by you again. It is human nature, every day you feel different and therefore try new things. Open your suitcase under the bed and dump all the clothes that you’ve outgrown or not going to make a use of. Donate it to a charitable trust they can make good use of it. Home storage in Bangalore is of a great need currently in big cities and living simple is how the modern world is perceived. It is ideal to have a goal in mind. Say 5 tops, three jeans, a couple of shorts and three pairs of shoes. That should do it.

YOUR BATHROOM

Okay, so we do not have those lavish bathrooms that we see in the movies, we spare a small space of the apartment to do our daily duties and have a shower. Yet, this is the most, and I stress the most important room that needs to be hospital-like sterlised place. That being said, you must organise the cabinets in the bathroom. Have a soap box, your scrubs, toothpaste and toothbrush, washed, dried and kept in an air tight space. Rotate the towels so you get the same wear and will eventually all be ready to replace the same time, keeping the set the fresh and new.

Are you the colour coordinated type?

Colour coordination is one of the coolest ways to get your things organised and have fun at the same time. Colour has an association with us human beings. You could have a favourite colour that translates into your clothes, stationary, shoes, bags and so on. By applying this principle to your daily work processes, you can work faster and reduce stress.

Did you know most organisation gurus claim that using color is the most effective way of learning prioritisation and organisation? So to enhance your workspace or home space, use the colour coordination technique and watch it organise itself in ways you could have never imagined.

Take note.

However smart and bright you’re as a person, information comes in at a speed of light and it is very difficult to remember and process it. But now with colour, everything has fallen into line. Using colour to when jotting down important notes, for e.g. red means urgency, blue means that task can be pushed a little further.

File in, file out.

Adding a color strategy to a filing system is an enhancement that saves time in both retrieving and filing information. This can be especially helpful when dealing with large file categories such as clients, vendors or product lines. With the help of the colour, you compartmentalise your shelves or drawers which helps you navigate easily and saves you a lot on time.

Coloured closet.

Organising your closet by colour not only creates a look of organisation in your closet but it can also help you to identify where you have items in the most colour and the least colour. When it comes to colors, you have to decide individually what works best for you based on the season, how you wear them and how accessible you need them.

Office, office.

Adding even a little color to your office is sure to improve not only function at work but is likely to improve your confidence. You feel better when you can quickly locate what you need and can spend your time on tasks instead of looking for things.

The library.

Very often we organise our novels and comic books based on the genre or the times we have read it. But what if we re-organised it based on colour. Organising books by colour gives a unique look to any space. When you, group your books by shades and hues , that space now becomes your style.

The medication colourisation.

Mixing up medications is a big worry, especially with several family members sharing a medicine cabinet or if anyone in the household has bad eyesight. To keep pills separated by type or family member, try sticking a product with colour. For e.g. your dad’s red, mom likes green. So place your parents medicine in the cabinet under the specific colour and they wouldn’t miss a pill.
