How to organize your home spaces: ideas and tips to optimize small spaces
From modern lofts to old town flats, from metropolitan apartments to the great country mansions.
Regardless the size of our home, these are the main questions that we should ask ourselves in order to better “exploit” the available space: how should we organize the spaces at home to make it practical and multi-functional? How can we dynamically adapt to our ever more hectic lifestyles?
Clearly, there is not just one right answer: if on one side a big apartment is subject to waste of space and accumulation of things, on the other side smaller apartments are often uncleverly partitioned, but in both situations, the space is never perceived to be sufficient.
Therefore, the main goal is to reach an optimization and organization of the spaces.
In order to be free from that sense of confusion conveyed by unorganized or “cluttered” spaces, you should start with some basic expedients.
Thanks to some tricks and transforming solutions, you can get rid of what is superfluous and find a new set-up for your home.
Three smart ideas to organize your home

The frenzy of the everyday life often leads to objects accumulation, from the tiniest to the bulkiest ones, that usually prove to be useless and literally devour space. In this case the password is decluttering.
First things first, in order to change spaces, you need to understand your needs and to do it you ought to realize how many things you have. Look at everything and ask yourself: “do I really need this?”. The answer to this question can be influenced by a sentimental attachment to things. A clever trick is to think about the last time you used it, if it was more than a year ago, then you probably will not miss it. Getting rid of what you do not need is the first step to regain possession of your spaces.
- A place for everything. At this point the best ally to enjoy your spaces is order: everything should have its own “home”. This way you gain two benefits: visual delight and functionality. Finding what you need is going to be easier as well as cleaning and making your home more pleasant, roomier and more livable.

It is time to focus on the choice of furniture and solutions mixing style and multi-functionality. Have you ever considered buying transforming furniture?

One space, many functions: tips to organize small environments
Decluttering means gathering things rather than scattering them: the best possible advice to get your house organized is to create multi-functional, versatile and flexible spaces.
Organization is not only a synonymous of order, but also of smart use of the space. Every centimeter, if properly exploited, can make a difference in giving a fresh new look to your home and taking advantage of its full potential.
A practical example?
A single 4 meters wall can contain three different scenarios to be alternated during the day: the kitchen area can be closed to have enough space for a pleasant dinner with friends before the long-awaited relaxing time.
A new space for every time of the day is what you can have with easy rapid moves thanks to Clei patents and technology.

How to optimize your home spaces
Optimizing your home spaces means carefully considering the intended use of each room and the must-have key elements. In other words, nobody would design a bedroom without a bed or a living room without a sofa.
Usually, this kind of furniture has one single flaw: they are bulky. Furniture inevitably takes up space that would definitively be better exploited by adopting alternative solutions.
The good news is that such solutions exist: as mentioned above, we are talking about transforming systems able to combine multiple functions within one single piece of furniture. A room can thus become a flexible environment, able to fluidly adapt to every need.
This is possible thanks to the clean, modern and appealing design of few fundamental pieces of furniture. For example if you wanted to create an area that combines a living room where you can relax, a study corner for your smart work and a bedroom where you can enjoy your well-deserved sleep, you could opt for a solution inspired by our Space 22.
Here, Penelope 2 Sofa, a dual-function transforming system with a foldaway double bed including a sofa and a bookcase, is placed next to Home Office, a cabinet with a central door that becomes a wide desk and a compartment equipped with a micro-perforated metal sheet shelf, cable gland and LED lighting.
