WE ALL watch these videos of people getting their homes organized, but not everyone is a clean queen.
Some of us are messy and that’s where interior designer Brie Turton comes in.
The pro expert shared her top three tips for people who just can’t keep their home clean and tidy on her social media account.
“Interior Design Guide for Messy Girls,” she said, encouraging the viewer to listen to what she has to say. “If you love interiors but aren’t the tidiest person, then you’ve come to the right place.”
Her first suggestion to viewers is “the bedside rule of three,” meaning you have three different compartments for three different types of things.
Brie claimed she knew you probably left something on your bedside table and said she swears by that method.
“Number one is a tray for things that are supposed to be there,” she said. “So on my bedside table I have a room spray and a small bowl for my engagement ring.”
She continued, “Number two is a smaller bowl for last minute things I forgot to take off, like earrings or hair ties, which go in bowl number two.”
The third compartment is a drawer at the top of your bedside table for those “random” items that have been stacked on the bedside table and can be swept in before bed.
“You can go to sleep in this nice, clean room and tidy up the drawer later,” she said.
The second suggestion TikTok user @studiobrie makes to viewers is to set up a pantry.
But she explained that it’s not one where everything is made out of jars with everything neatly stacked on top of each other. Instead, she thinks bigger baskets are better, where you can throw everything you need.
“You can leave things in their original packaging because I know you have good intentions to decant absolutely everything like the first picture, but you won’t keep that,” she said. “And suddenly glasses and the original packaging are there and it looks like a total disaster.”
She went on to say that big boxes are better for messy girls because they look consistent and tidy without actually having to be tidy.
Her third and final tip is to “have lots of matching hangers on hand.”
She said if you keep an extra box at the bottom of your closet, you’ll find that the “floor closet” is out.
People were quick to comment, with one person writing, “It’s me, I’m the messy girl,” followed by a crying laughter emoji.
Another said: “The hanger trick is so true! And such cheap wooden models are available at IKEA.”
While a third added: “You are a godsend.”
