With the spring season, there always comes a spring cleaning checklist. And while we’re familiar with the basics like vacuuming the floors and polishing your wood, what happens when you simply have too much stuff? In this article, we discuss how to make the cleaning process easier with five tips to reduce clutter and add storage. These tips cover everything from cleaning up and clearing out to adding new shelving and container storage. However, there’s also an emphasis on more subtle elements of storage design like custom cabinetry, drawers, and small nooks, so that you can find a home for every item.
