Spring is the perfect time to change the look. I want to change the color around the bed and rugs to a brighter color, but first I have to clean up the cluttered room ... Is there a lot of people like that?
If you have a hard time cleaning up your room, there may be a problem with how things are stored. This time, I participated in a "storage styling course" by 3M and professionals in organizing and storing, and learned the tips for cleaning up and how to use storage items!
◆ The iron rules of a house that continues to be beautiful
The instructor is Eriko Yoshikawa, a storage stylist who is active in television and magazines. First of all, you will learn the basic idea of organizing and storing and the procedure for putting things away in an easy-to-understand lecture.
In order to create a storage that keeps clean, it is especially important to thoroughly implement "fixed position management" and "determination of the appropriate amount". For fixed position management, determine the place where things are most convenient to use, and be sure to return to that place when you use it. Then, think about the amount (appropriate amount) of what you need for your life, and be conscious of not increasing it unnecessarily.
Therefore, it is convenient to have goods such as hooks and double-sided tape that can be pinpointed where you want to increase storage. Recently, there are many things that can be "cleanly peeled off", and it is possible to redo or restore the original state. Here's how to use these to determine the location of things, along with examples in the house studio!
At first glance, it seems that there is a lot of storage, and the difficulty of the kitchen is that there is not enough space in the reachable area. In such a case, you can create an instant fixed position by attaching a basket or a display shelf to the wall.
Fashionable display shelves can also be fixed without screws by using "Scotch super strong double-sided tape that can be peeled off later".
Light cooking utensils such as small pots and ladles should be hung in dead spaces such as behind doors and ceilings. Since the hook part of the command swing hook moves 180 degrees, the point is that it is easy to use even if it is attached upward.
◆ Children's room / bedroom
Next is the children's room. According to Mr. Yoshikawa, the key to teaching children to clean up is to create storage from the child's perspective and change the height as they grow . Also, it is said that it is relatively easy for young children to put things on the hook.
In the actual example, ideas such as hanging things that are always used together on the side of the shelf or sticking a towel hanger at a low position were proposed. In addition, this jumbo hook can withstand up to 3.5 kg, so the land cell is also messy!
This is the bedroom closet. It's easy to store only clothes, but if you put a deodorant spray or brush for clothes together, you will have a habit of taking care of it on a daily basis.
In addition, if you install accessories and mirrors, you will be able to get dressed much more smoothly.
The last is the entrance. Let's aim for "zero things left behind" by utilizing the back of the shoe box door!
An interesting item that appears here is the "command fastener click holder". The tapes stick together like velcro, so you can fix things directly to the wall. It's convenient to have sunscreen and insect repellent that you tend to forget when preparing for the morning.
◆ Can it really come off cleanly?
By the way, are these goods really "clean"? I tried using "Scotch super strong double-sided tape that can be peeled off later". In addition, this tape has a special tool for peeling, and the thread is passed between the tape and the adhesive surface to peel it off.
◆ Bonus: Trendy DIY becomes more familiar
A workshop will also be held at the end of the course. Participants tried to make original miscellaneous goods by freely combining the tape and the prepared parts.
Even 100-yen DIY, which combines items such as 100-yen shops, can be freely modified and disassembled by using a tape that can be peeled off later. New products will be released one after another for 100 items, so it is very convenient for people who want to modify what they have made once!
“What is the hint that things are left out? I want you to think about why you can't do it,” says Yoshikawa. Lifestyles are different for each person, so why not start by reviewing the current situation and starting from where you can?
