Is Your Living Space in Need of Decluttering?

June 25, 2021

Do you find you are constantly losing things in your home? The endless searching for your phone, keys or glasses can be frustrating. Or perhaps you’ve recently noticed the copious amounts of dusting and cleaning required lately - which seems to take longer and longer each time! If either of these scenarios sounds familiar, it could be a sign that your life will benefit from some serious home decluttering. Decluttering brings many benefits such as allowing you to take control and feel relaxed in your living space, plus enjoying extra time to do what you love, by reducing your cleaning hours and cutting the time spent searching for everyday items.

When it comes to decluttering your home, it is important initially to understand the cause of why things pile up in the first place. Are you struggling with feeling immensely overcrowded, yet cannot part with your useful or treasured belongings? Perhaps your existing space is no longer operating efficiently to suit your present nor future needs.


Build Functional Space and Storage with a Home Improvement Project.

It is common for our lifestyle and needs to change as we go through our lives, and when it comes to space, it’s important to leave room to grow. It may even be a case of altering the floorplan of your existing home - to increase the natural flow through the house, open up the area and potentially uncover opportunities for more storage to be installed.

Liaising with an expert in designing functional spaces and maximising floorplans means you can achieve the storage and space you need. A functional, spacious home built specifically to your needs means less unnecessary cleaning, less organising and less stress, since you’ll have the ability to move freely around the home you love without the constant nagging feeling of clutter clouding your spirits.

The rising trend of decluttering is seeing many people letting go of items that don’t ‘bring them joy’. Cutting down on the stuff you need and moving into a brand new, custom-designed Granny Flat is a great way to cleanse yourself of unnecessary items from an untidy or overcrowded house. Moving into and getting accustomed to living in a fresh, clutter-free space is also great motivation to keep up the habit in future.

Cubitt’s have a wide range of 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and even 3-bedroom Granny Flat models to choose from. Unlike most other builders, we also offer custom Granny Flats built to suit specific lifestyle needs such as expanded pantry space to keep your kitchen clutter-free.


Functional wardrobes and storage for bedrooms are just some of the many inclusions offered when you build you dream Granny Flat design with Cubitt’s. Every bedroom includes sliding mirrored built-in wardrobe doors in classic white aluminium frame, with matching white melamine fit-out including shelves and hanging rail. There are also swing doors with three shelves of storage included in our Telopea Granny Flat model. Declutter your life and enjoy functional, easy-access storage.
