1. The basis of the Remodelista philosophy is system and order. Get rid of unnecessary things, buy less, but better, organize what you have. Store similar items together, remove what you don't want to see out of sight, and use all explicit and implicit storage systems. Avoid perfectionism, relax and enjoy a beautiful and tidy home.

2. For each type of room, Remodelista has its own life hacks. Never neglect a hallway . Tidy it up using the shaker method (arm yourself with wall hooks and hang all your clothes and bags).

Don't be afraid of the bathroom cabinet. Throw out any expired items and put the things you use the most in the front row. We are sure that you did it intuitively. Now you will do it according to the rules of Remodelista.

Don't be intimidated by unpleasant objects. Even a toilet brush will look stylish in a white jug, and a hairdryer will hang nicely in a canvas bag.

3. Use vertical surfaces, ie walls.

Wall hooks are our everything, according to the authors of the book. They will transform a microscopic bathroom into a spacious room. They will help the bedroom to place clothes, jewelry and bags in the absence of a dressing room.

If you have a habit of throwing clothes anywhere before bed, get used to a new one: hang them on wall hooks.

4. How to hide the ubiquitous wires? Julia and Margot looked the truth in the eye and admitted - it is impossible to get rid of the wires, but they can be called to order. Ideally, of course, buy the Alex table from IKEA , which has a special compartment. But you can also help non-table owners. The wires can be put into a box, twisted, pressed and directed in the desired direction.

5. Use trays. Grouping objects on a tray is like putting a picture in a frame. Everything will look great on it: shoes in the hallway (do not forget to put a rug in it), and sets for washing dishes in the kitchen, and small things on the dressing table, and a bartender's set in the living room, and the dining place of your favorite cat.

6. It's time to get busy with your home office . This is very important now during remote work.

It is good if the apartment has a place for a home office. But often this role is played by a part of the dining table, a sofa or even a bed. The authors recommend how you can quickly make a portable office. Put everything you need for work: pens, notepads, laptop in a bag with pockets. Time! - and you can get in touch from any, even the most unexpected places!

7. Don't like to clean? You just didn't have a beautiful bucket! Get yourself a stylish metal bucket, fold the Julia and Margot cleaning kit into it and go to the heights of cleanliness!

8. Decant everything! Do you open the kitchen cabinet doors in horror because you can't find salt or flour behind the rubble of buckwheat, rice and sugar? Adopt the rule: pour everything into beautiful glass jars, bottles of the same type and tin cans. And then you can remove the cabinet doors and show off order.

In addition to products, much more can be decanted. Cleaning products, detergents (yes, there will be beauty in the cabinet under the sink!), Food for the cat (the animal also wants to eat beautifully), Lego pieces - all this will also look great in a beautiful jar.

9. Get ready set. The taxi has arrived and are you looking for a passport? First, all things must be in place. Second, put together a travel kit and keep it in one place. Passport, $ 100, toothbrush, disposable razor, sleeping pills, phone charger. They took it and went. And no surprises.
