The quest for extra space at home is endless. Some buy organizing gadgets, some take on renovations to create extra square footage, but Nate’s solution is our favorite because it’s not only simple, it’s… free. Seriously.
“Clean your house—it costs you nothing!” says Nate. “You can’t have a beautifully designed space if you can’t see the furniture and surfaces in your home.”
Of course he doesn’t just mean dusting and putting things away: If you’re truly invested in getting more space, you have to purge. But how to declutter? Use Nate’s go-to questions below as you go through your home to figure out what stays and what goes.
If the No’s outnumber the Yes’s, toss it! “It’s important to donate or sell these items because you have to give the pieces you do love room to breathe,” says Nate. And remember: There’s always someone out there who can use the things you don’t need. Not only will donating pieces give you more space and peace of mind, it’s an act of kindness.
So: what are you waiting for? More space awaits…
