Sure this sounds like a fancy name for house cleaning, but decluttering is more than that. Removing excess furnishings to make your rooms seem larger and more inviting, is something you and your entire family can enjoy. Extra space is always a good thing and if you have extra items that you don’t use or need, decluttering is the perfect way to say goodbye to them.
3. Update Your Kitchen
