They say a tidy home means a tidy mind, and it's certainly a mantra that Romaine Lowery lives by.

The mum-of-three runs The Organised Home – a Christchurch-based company which admits it is so "obsessed" with cleverly designed, sleek storage, that it has sourced the most beautifully bespoke, contemporary solutions to both organise and add style to people's homes.

Romaine also pays visits to her clients' homes, mainly across Dorset and Hampshire, to help them declutter their rooms and their wardrobes.

"I was running the Clutter Clinic – that still exists," she explains. "That was just personal organisation, mainly in London, for over 12 years. I launched The Organised Home website four years ago because I was having to try and recommend storage solutions. There was such a lack of really nice, contemporary designed storage. People were having to go to lots of different shops online.

"I introduced The Organised Home. We sell design-led, mainly Scandi. They are the best designers for both form and function. Typically, storage solutions either look brilliant but are awful, or look awful, but are brilliant.

"I want really beautiful storage that you can have on display."

Romaine admits she is "quite an organised person" herself, and began trying out her decluttering skills on friends and family, before realising there was potential for her to turn her passion into a business venture.

"I looked and I could see in America, it's big – they're so into personal organising," she says.

"I think maybe, not so much now, but at the time, there was a bit of reticence in England for people to admit that they need help. People are less shy about wardrobe editing because you're getting very specific advice. But sometimes people think 'why can't I tidy my own living room?'

"Decluttering is only a positive experience. It's amazing. It's very rewarding. People are just so thrilled with everything I've done."

Romaine is a big fan of Scandi designers, many of which she follows on social media, with much of the storage solutions sold by The Organised Home inspired by the signature clean lines.

She spends time visiting trade shows, such as Maison d'Object in Paris, where she carefully selects products from designer-makers from all over the world.

"They're not huge, big manufactured things," she explains. "Our clothes racks are made by two sisters back in Finland, they design the products and make them. It's the form and finish that I like – Scandinavians don't over-complicate things."

So what are Romaine's top tips when it comes to tackling the decluttering?

"If they're starting on their own, I'm completely against the idea of starting with a drawer because it's not enough," she says. "I think start with a room and finish the entire room. Within a room, look at different groups of items – like books. The things that you don't want can go outside the door. Go through a category at a time. Look at all the kids' toys. You have to open every door and every cupboard.

"When you've done the one room thoroughly, you're motivated to do the rest of the house. It works every time. One room at a time."

She stresses that people shouldn't rush into buying furniture and ensure that space is left around the objects in your home.

"Don't cover every surface with everything you've got. Use multi-purpose pieces of furniture and think about how you display things. If you have too many pieces, you don't see anything on the shelf. They need space around them.

"And organise things in groups of three – it's something to do with how the brain works."

When it comes to wardrobes, Romaine recommends removing every article of clothing and all accessories before organising by type and then by colour to ensure you can see exactly what you own. Try and buy more natural materials, such as cotton, bamboo, silk and wool, which will last longer.

The first step, enthuses Romaine, is just getting started.

"People are put off decluttering their home for a long time and it's a big thing for them. Then they tackle it and it's amazing how much it fires them up. So many clients have then gone on to tackle other problems, such as losing weight, or getting fit.

"It's unblocking all these negative thoughts."
