Clutter can create a chaotic and stressful environment. One way to reduce this mess is by utilizing creative storage ideas. Using a trunk will help reduce the mess of a cluttered room. There are a variety of styles and sizes to choose from.
The idea of using a trunk for storage is not a new one, people have been doing so for hundreds of years. They can be used in nearly any room, though they are commonly found in bedrooms. A trunk at the end of the bed is a great place to keep extra blankets, sweaters, and other items that are not necessarily used everyday. They can also be used in a home office to store documents, old letters, and other sentimental papers that do not belong in a filing cabinet. In the living room a trunk can double as a coffee table and a storage unit. The possibilities are endless.
Most storage trunks will add a rustic feel to a room. Antique trunks are the most common style. These can be bought from consignment shops or antique stores. Replicas can be bought new. These will look like the aged antique trunks, but are made from new materials. Some can be very ornate with locks, leather handles, and heavy latches. Wheels are another option. Wheels make moving the unit much easier. There are also simple trunks that may just have a hinged opening.
Choosing storage trunks to reduce clutter is an excellent way to organize. Many people benefit from the style and functionality of them. Consider organizing a room with the added style of a trunk.
