It doesn’t take long for various types of clutter, such as mail, trinkets, bags and dishes to gather on countertops and flat surfaces. Getting rid of some of the clutter in your house gives it an instant makeover.
The key is to take advantage of free vertical space.
For example, you could hang a key rack next to your entryway, fill a wall space with an accordion hanger (either horizontally or vertically) or fix your television to the wall with a mount to create cleaner display space for photos, small plants, etc., on shelves. You could also fix large floating shelves over beds for heavier objects, like books, albums and candles.
You could actually do all of these things for $100 or less.
