6 easy ways to make clutter disappear

Every home has its share of clutter, including those little knick-knacks in the living rooms that we use every day but don’t want on display. And not all of it can be put away in a drawer. That’s why we’ve got these clever ideas to keep that clutter organised. 

Keep your kids’ toys organised in labeled DRÖNA boxes that make them easy to find and put away.

1. A fresh take on storage: Want to add an eye-catching accent to your living room while finding a place to keep your unused throws? Our beautiful woven basket is perfect for the job.

2. Bed storage that works for the living rooms too: These boxes on wheels are not only for the bedroom, slide them under the sofa for more living room storage. Keep it neat with interior organisers and store your exercise gear safely until your next workout.

3. A clever solution for the book lovers: Love books and find it hard to part with them? We understand. If you don’t want to leave them out all the time, mount a few shelves near your windows. Adding a curtain rod above them keeps them hidden from sight until it’s reading time.

4. Picking up after your little one can get exhausting but our labelled boxes make toys so much easier to find, and more importantly, put away. Even the kids could easily tidy up after playtime.

5. Taking a break from work? Hide your essentials away to focus on relaxing. Keep your laptop, paperwork and stationery out of sight with the help of the in-built storage inside the footstool. And when you decide to go back to work, everything is within reach again.

6. Creating a cosy ambience feels good, but it shouldn’t clutter your space: Just store potpourri, votive candles and other feel-good items handy in jars and decorative boxes in your living room. Set the mood whenever you like.
