Clutter hiding facilities
I’m in the middle of a big Spring clean and major house tidying session at the moment and, in trying to find ideas for clearing clutter out of sight, stumbled upon this set of seagrass baskets.
Compared to some of the seagrass baskets available which don’t have lids, I love the fact that these do, so you don’t permanently have to see everything inside. As they’re made from seagrass they should be sturdy and long-lasting and the circular design is a nice alternative to square storage boxes.
Even better is the fact that you get two of these storage baskets in a set – one large and one small – and together they’re priced at £30 from Lombok, which seems very reasonable.

If you can’t enough of Orla Kiely’s designs, or would like to introduce other people to your favourite designer, then these practical home storage boxes are a great idea.
Available in various different designs and sizes, each of the boxes features one of Orla’s classic designs. The boxes provide ample space for storing away your treasures or clutter, or you could use them as gift boxes for giving special presents in (and the recipient could then re-use them, making perfect eco sense!).
The large car design box is £15.50, the large multi stem print box is £14.50 and the large black abacus design box is also priced at £14.50. All three boxes are available from Selfridges, along with lots of other gorgeous Orla Kiely stationery.

These tiffin carriers are great for carting around all your goodies for a picnic, but you can also use them at home to store cakes or biscuits in.
Made from hard wearing melamine, the carrier features four separate sections that are clamped together with a stainless steel band. Just flip back the clips and, voila, the case is opened.
The bottom three sections of the tiffin are 6cm deep, so there’s a good amount of space available. The top layer is 4cm deep and divided into three useful compartments.
The tiffin box is available from John Lewis in a choice of two colours – Brights, which is pink, green, red and blue, and Woodland, which features more subtle shades of blue and green.

Super storage box
Having drawers built in under a bed provides oodles of useful storage space. But if your bed is lacking drawers, don’t despair!

It’s made from dark rattan, lined with a nice turquoise colour and measures 83cm by 46cm by 18cm. It would be ideal for storing all your jumpers and woolies during the summer, or simply for helping to reduce some of the clutter from your room.
The dark rattan storage box is sold by Heal’s, who also have other matching boxes available in different sizes.

I really like the idea of wallpapering the inner back of plain white shelving, so you can see colourful wallpaper showing through, but it can be a bit of a fiddle to do on existing shelves, especially if they’re packed with books.
These bookshelf boxes are great, as they come ready wallpapered, so there’s no hard work involved. You could use them for storing books in, or simply use the shelves for displaying other home accessories and ornaments. The less you put in them, the more the wallpaper will show through.
The bookshelf boxes come in sets of two, in a choice of green or purple, and are available from Camel and Yak.

Storage baskets are one of those ever useful home accessories that you can never have enough of. They’re even better when they’ve got lids, like these two seagrass storage boxes from Zara Home, as you can fill them with clutter, then pop the lid on and hide it all from view.
These two storage boxes are given a bright, fresh look with the use of coloured stripes. Choose from the vibrant turquoise green, or the pastel pink.
The Raya baskets measures 23cm by 23cm and are only £9.90 each from Zara Home.
