9 neat products to help you get organised

 

Our lifestyles and homes have changed drastically over the years. Our houses are getting smaller, and many of us are looking toward minimal design as a cure for the lack of space. Brands are leaning in with specialised products that serve the demand for clean, simple design. So if you need help tidying up a wire-strewn desk or organising an overflowing bookshelf, you can rest assured there’s a product that’s up to the task.

HyperCasa CEO Gaurav Agarwal says that when it comes to designing an organiser, his priority is to solve a problem. Gaurav came up with the idea for the TidyUp! Wire Bin when he got tired of seeing the mess of wires on his own office desk. “Turns out, a lot of people have this problem,” he explains. The Wire Bin was well-received, and joined the ranks of a new wave of products specifically designed to de-clutter. Still, there’s a fine balance between form and function. “It’s going to be in your direct line of sight, so in addition to solving the problem, it has to look good,” Gaurav offers, “But it can’t be the centre of attraction.”

The best organisers, in Gaurav’s opinion, are minimalistic. This sentiment is echoed by interior designer and social media influencer Rukmini Ray Kadam, who insists, “It doesn’t matter how beautiful the product is. Does it fit in your scheme of things?” When choosing the right organiser for your space, she asks that you follow three rules: first, it should match the design of your space, second, the materials should be durable, and then most importantly—it should be easy to use. “The whole point is to make storage simpler—so something with a simple clasp, or lid would work better,” Rukmini explains, adding “Obviously, something that is complicated to open and close—you’re not going to use it very much.”

When it comes to picking the right organiser for your space from all the products on offer, you may feel spoilt for choice. Here’s our top pick of products that are versatile and well-suited to any space.
