This declutter project was huge, and the cause of most of the clutter was simply that when the attic was converted to a bedroom, there was no more storage added to compensate for the huge loss of storage space. Converting your attic gives you an extra room or two, but don’t forget to create extra storage in the rest of the house to compensate for the loss of this major storage area – and have a regular declutter too. This family were struggling to fit in their home once they converted their attic, as each room then overflowed with their belongings. Re-organizing their storage allowed the house to breathe again:
The following clothes clutter was caused by a problem upstairs. The wardrobe doors were blocked by clutter and furniture, so clothes weren’t being removed when they were finished with, and the clean clothes couldn’t be put away. Poor laundry management soon causes a backup somewhere in the house. Sometimes I see utility rooms like this, other times I see piles of clothes all over the house. In order to declutter a house, you need to recognise what the main cause of the clutter is.
