Christmas is a distant memory, as well as the chaos that came with it. The extra guests have long gone on their merry way, and a sense of normality has started to return. But doesn’t your space look bare without all those bright and beautiful Christmas decorations? And what are you going to do with all the toys and gifts that now need new homes?

Join us as we look at four instant ways to give your home a fresh boost of energy (no nasty green smoothies required). This is one New Year plan you’ll enjoy getting on board with.

1. Declutter in style

Underbed storage

Storage solutions don’t have to be boring. When it comes to keeping us organised, plastic storage definitely has its place and it makes ideal underbed storage too. However, there are plenty more options out there – is it time to make storage work harder for you? Choose storage that doubles up as seating, like our distinctive ottomans, to maximise all available space. Or find a storage collection that complements your décor to boost the rest of your existing furniture. The right storage should seamlessly fit into your home and provide an effective way to sort that clutter out at the same time.
