7 country-style clutter clearing ideas for every room

Keep your home looking neat and tidy with these clever storage solutions for every room – big or small!

Pressing matter
Laundry rooms are all about function, so well thought out features are essential to maximise on space. The open cubbyhole in these bespoke units provides easy access to an ironing board, while wooden rails offer much-needed hanging space for freshly laundered clothes.

Climb the ladder
Open storage is a visual plus in small bathrooms as it avoids a closed-in feel. This country-style ladder keeps towels and small items within reach and can be repositioned as necessary.

Pin up
Add a country touch to your study with three fabric-covered notice boards. Not only are they a practical way of keeping on top of flyaway paperwork, they double up as a beautiful wall display, too.

Lets hang
Make the most of awkward under-stair space by creating an open cloakroom. A decorative shelf complete with hooks is both stylish and functional, adding a pretty vintage feel. Place hooks on the underside of the steps to hang coats, bags, umbrellas and general outdoor wear.

Behind closed doors
Stop your boot room becoming an untidy dumping ground by ensuring every item has a home; a cupboard for coats, a dedicated basket for hats and gloves and a stylish shoe rack are all good ideas. Built in bench seating provides a handy spot to remove muddy wellies and the space underneath can also be used for extra storage.

Bright and beautiful
Store bright crockery in a kitchen dresser to inject colour and pattern into the room, freeing up cupboard space for other less exciting kitchen items. Grains, cereals and dried goods decanted into glass jars make for a rustic larder-style display along the top shelf.

Chic display
Big and bulky in nature, bedroom textiles can be a nightmare to store. Instead of trying to hide them away, turn pretty patterned quilts, cushions and blankets into a feature by stacking them up neatly in a mesh-fronted French armoire.
