Expert Reveals 10 Benefits Of Home Organisation

We spend the majority of our time in our homes, it is a space where we are supposed to feel safe and relaxed. But to ensure this it’s vital that each home is organised, from the everyday tasks to the layout of the property.

Ways you can improve your home organisation include creating schedules or rotas to plan your day and the tasks you want to complete. You can also go around your home and take note of areas where space isn’t being used. That allows you to plan new additions to your home to make it more efficient and improve your living standards.

Joshua Houston, Home Expert at Household Quotes have revealed ten benefits of home organisation. These range from setting a good example for your children to aiding your physical health.


Ten benefits of home organisation

A good example for your kids

Demonstrating an organised home from an early age is an excellent example to show your children. They will pick up organisational skills and will learn how to run a home for when they’re ready to move out in the future.

Reduces stress and anxiety

Access Box Storage conducted a study looking into the percentage of people who feel stressed or anxious in a cluttered home. Over 47% responded saying that they do. Mess in your home can lead you to becoming overwhelmed, you may not know where to start with cleaning and tidying up. This leaves people with a lot of stress and anxiety which further reduces their motivation to better organise their living conditions.

Home organisation ensures that your home is regularly tidied and cleaned, allowing you to live in a hygienic and mentally calming environment. You can do this by creating schedules for when cleaning and other tasks need to be completed. 

Saves you time

Keeping on top of the upkeep of your home will save you a lot of time in the long run. Attending to tasks that need doing straight away, rather than neglecting them will prevent long-term damage to your home. Areas that are severely damaged or neglected take more time to rectify than doing a small bit of cleaning or maintenance every day.

Saves you money

Having an organised home means that you can take care of items better. Your furniture will last longer as you plan time to maintain them, rather than letting them go into disrepair. This will save you money on having to buy replacements.

Organising your home can also save you money on regular household items by buying them in bulk. An organised household will know exactly how much essentials like toilet paper they need to get by for the week. This also means less waste, aiding the environment.

Can aid relationships

Stress and anxiety can have a big effect on relationships, it can cause you to have more arguments and have a shorter temper. Organising your home results in important tasks like washing clothes and the dishes being delegated. So after a long day at work, you can come home and have more time to relax.

It also equals out responsibility around the house, making sure one person isn’t taking on the majority of the tasks whilst others contribute minimally. Tasks building up can result in enormous pressure

Better sleep

Saving time through a more organised home allows you more time to get your head down. A good night’s sleep is crucial for a good next day, you will wake up feeling fresh ready to take on whatever comes along.

The link between a messy room and sleep deprivation has been heavily studied. It results in your brain becoming overstimulated seriously impacting your sleep. Make sure your room is clean before you go to bed, this will allow you to sleep and wake up in a calm, clean environment.


Increase productivity

It’s very easy to be unproductive in our own home, we are constantly distracted by phone notifications or the TV. Plenty of people across the nation get home from work and spend hours scrolling apps like TikTok. If you organise your home through a schedule, you’ll be able to plan TikTok time into your day. But you will be able to utilise minutes better and get important tasks done.


Great environment for guests

Living in an unproductive household can lead to people being nervous to invite guests round. They are scared that they will be judged or looked down upon due to the state of their home. An organised home ensures a good level of cleanliness and that your furniture is laid out in a way that you can entertain guests.

Reduces physical health risks

An unorganised home can cause physical health risks, if your property isn’t regularly cleaned then bad bacteria can build up. Accidentally ingesting some of this causes serious illnesses, so it’s crucial that your home is as hygienic as possible.

Anxiety and stress in the long term can cause more physical health risks like panic attacks and heart attacks. Being organised helps you eliminate these risks and live a more healthy life.

More space

Take a good look around your home and highlight areas where space isn’t being utilised properly. Organising your home allows you to plan the perfect pieces of furniture for each room. It gives you space you never thought you could have. More space, especially for a bigger family will result in a happy family.

Joshua Houston, Home Expert at Household Quotes:

''It is often understated how important your home is for your quality of life. Implementing a more organised routine will improve your living conditions and most importantly improve your physical and mental health.

We all want time to relax, but we also have to get key tasks completed for a happy home. Give yourself the best chance and consider the potential benefits.''
