Now a few tricks for every room in your home will follow. They can make your life easier and allow you to see the details in new contexts.
Sometimes it is worth to think a little out of the normal boundaries. However, it does not need to be anything essential. You may try to rethink your normal everyday routine and what could be changed about it.
Something To Go
The convention says that food belongs to the kitchen where it should be stored. Anyway, it is not necessary to strictly follow the rule. Many people e.g. hide some treats in their bedside tables or in the drawers of their desks.
Try to consider a little healthier option: prepare a small snack and place it in the hallway. No, we do not mean the sandwiches in a foil. You can simply place a bowl of fruit there (the bowl, which normally sits on the table in the kitchen) or a small tray with muesli bars.
Everyone in the household will thus be able to take a piece, and above all, you will always remember to take a snack with you, when you are leaving for work or for school.
In The First Row
This principle can also be applied in bathrooms, which are usually overfilled with all sorts of products and equipment. The few things you use regularly (or better yet, you want to get used to using, such as the dental floss) should be visible well. Do not close them in a cupboard, put them ideally on a shelf at the eye level, or hang them on hooks, if their shape allows it. Remove everything else from the sight, so that the things would not be “lost” visually amid other products.
All The Flavours And Colours
A very similar problem often occurs in the kitchens. You have dozens of spice boxes, but you use only 3 or 4 of them, you have special tools and gadgets, you “fell in love with” in the store, but you hardly ever remember them, when cooking.
In this case, align the spice boxes so that the forgotten ones were in the forefront, and do not put the new utensils in a drawer. If you are a bit addicted to buying funny gadgets for the kitchen, follow a simple rule: anything you buy must be used the next day. And if you know in advance that you fail, because you would need 10 specific ingredients and 3 hours of time, it makes a little sense to buy the thing…
On Your Feet
It may not always be a bad. Especially when you are not on your feet literally all the time, but you can sit down sometimes. A work on the PC usually passes faster, when you stand next to the device instead of sitting. Remember e.g. the searching PCs in libraries, which serve their purpose really well.
You can buy a stand for you notebook for your home use; the stand can be quite cheap nowadays. Similarly, you can use the kitchen bar, if you have one. This way you can do the morning agenda quickly and efficiently.
If you do not have a dining room, you certainly have a dining area in the kitchen. Try to remember – when did you last use it all together? In fact, every member of the household takes his or her food wherever they want, usually to the TV or the PC.
One of the options is to make the dining table and its surroundings more attractive. Abandon the plastic tablecloths, get beautiful fabric placemats and use them, indeed. Some of the condiments and the cutlery can remain on the table permanently.
