Winter time inevitably keeps us indoors a lot more, and it can be easy to get comfortable and let the tidiness of your home slide a little as you get comfy on the couch, or the kids drag out every toy they own to keep themselves entertained on rainy days. Becoming idle with regular tidying up is bound to happen, but if you create spaces for your belongings and get into the habit of putting things away each day, your house doesn’t have to feel cluttered with stuff while everyone is indoors!


The number one place clutter gathers is the kitchen bench. Usually the bigger the bench, the more clutter there is!

Living Area

The colder months mean more blankets to get cosy under, maybe a few extra pillows, and more books and magazines on coffee tables to keep us entertained while we’re inside. To keep your living space looking comfortable and inviting instead of crowded and messy, there are a few clever ways to hide the clutter.


Cold nights call for additional bedding to keep us warm, and this can lead to an excess of blankets piled on beds during the day.

Toys and Kids’ Items

Toys seem to take over the house during Winter, and it’s easy to forget to ask the kids to pack up at the end of each day.

Keeping your home clutter-free during Winter will be easy if you get in the habit of popping things back where they belong each day. Adding functional but stylish items like baskets, shelves, and decorative trays and bowls will help you and your family identify and allocate places for the extra items that seem to accumulate during the cold months. By incorporating these tips into your home, you’ll ensure your home is neat and tidy while still being warm and inviting!
