Decorating & Hiding

If you are like most people, your home has clutter that you would love to hide. Perhaps you have small children with lots of toys lying around, maybe you love working on crafts or sewing and your room is overflowing with notions, or you might just have too many things that are causing your home to look unorganized and cluttered. Regardless of the situation, there are solutions that will help you.

You can use things to help hide the clutter that will also add décor to your home. No one will even realize that your new furniture or decoration is actually hiding something you do not want people to see. For example, a tri-fold screen looks beautiful and can keep the kids toys out of sight. Another great option is choosing ottomans that are actually cubes that open up so the toys can quickly be stored away when unexpected company shows up.

Curtains can also offer more than just being window treatments. You could run a curtain in between two rooms or even areas of one room that would help hide clutter. In this case, if you have a family room in which your sewing machine and craft table are located, if you want to keep that hidden when guests, come over simply pull the curtain closed and you have an instant solution.

You can even use old suitcases. Buy some fun travel stickers or use ribbon, hobby paint, or other types of embellishment and decorate them to match your rooms décor. Then, you can fill them with things that you need but that can be put up when not being used. For instance, if you love reading magazines but hate the look of them lying around all over, you can store them inside the suitcase that is sitting in the corner, serving as a decorative piece. No one will even know that you actually use the suitcase for storage. The same would be true for old storag trunks. If you like, you can paint them, embellish them, and then use them to store blankets, sweaters, or whatever you like.

Another great choice is to use baskets, which can be purchased at any retail shop as well as thrift stores for reasonable prices. Baskets make a nice decorate for any room and are very functional. You can use them to hold the television remote control, cordless phone, pencil and paper, magazines, knitting yarn and needles, and so on.

As you can see, you can use all types of things to help hide any clutter while enjoying a beautifully decorated room. Start by looking at the area or mess that you need to hide and then use your creativity and think of these and other ways in which you can put those things away and make your room look great.
