If you’re like me, sometimes staying organized can be difficult. Especially in rooms such as the dining room, where table space tempts us to put miscellaneous items like shopping bags or those books that need to be returned to the library. Luckily, Laura Gaskill over at Houzz has some great tips for organizing a dining room and the best part? First, she says it helps to start on a weekend and then slowly finish throughout the week, keeping the task from becoming overwhelming.
As you move from decluttering to deep cleaning and finally to setting the table and using it, her tips are really helpful. Here are a few that I loved:
Tarnished silver? Line a pan with aluminum foil, add boiling water and baking soda, then soak several pieces at a time.
Make space for your favorite everyday pieces.
Dimmer switches are a “must-have” for dining room lighting.
“Keep a bowl of blessings or inspiring quotes written on slips of paper for reading aloud before dinner."
