I can't figure out what to get rid of!
The best way to determine what to get rid of and what to keep, whether it is clothes, furniture, or knick knacks, is to ask yourself whether you have used it in the past year. If the answer is no, then you should sell it, donate it, or throw it out. It is difficult to part with our things, especially those we have had for a long time, because they can come to represent a part of you.
Step 2: Develop a design for the space.
This doesn't necessarily mean professional drawings, but measuring the area to determine dimensions, deciding the placement of large furniture, and evaluating your lighting and storage options will help you later on. In order to make your space feel bigger, consider using bright colours and mirrors, as well as ensuring you don't block any windows or doors.
