  • Flat, clean, open surfaces have a way of becoming cluttered eyesores over time. And the top of your dressers are probably the biggest culprits. Books, empty water bottles, recent purchases, loose change and tons of other things often get tossed here. Conquer the clutter on each with these steps.

  • Start with a Clean Slate
    Clear everything off from the dresser top. Whoa! You probably had more on there than you realized (like a takeout container and that sticky note you’ve been looking for). Now you know what you’re working with, and can start taking inventory of what needs to stay and what needs to go.

  • Toss the Trash
Do it now! Otherwise your trash may just migrate to a new spot.

  • Dust and Polish
See any drink rings or nasty dust layers? We thought so. Give the top and sides of your dresser a thorough dusting.

  • Return Items to The Correct Place
    Books belong on the bookshelf, clothes in the closet, and random necessities like chargers and toiletries belong in their respective spots. If your dresser has become a catchall for clutter, try adding a dish for jewelry or a stylish basket for random items like lip gloss or keys.

  • Choose a Focal Point
    This seems like a small thing, but it's important. To create a space you love, and don’t want to clutter, you should choose a design focal point for your dresser. A vase with fresh flowers or a beautiful atomizer can serve as the center of this space. Then, add smaller items like candles and picture frames to complete the look.

  • Defining this aesthetic will help you keep the space clean, rather than having it descend into clutter jungle in a few weeks.
