reduce the clutter? Or don't know where to start?
If you don't know where to start and feel like you're
backed into a corner then maybe this is your solution to the
Let me introduce you to the top-to-bottom-strategy.
It is a procedure that can be of great service to you if you
are starting out and you are about to move into your own
Or if you already own a house full of furniture and are
willing to sell or donate what you no longer want in order
to purchase a better version.
It will work in many situations from great to small.
The greater your willingness to get rid of the old and bring
in the new, the bigger space difference there will be in your
You may not want to exchange out many items in your home but
decide on a few select items that will make a big difference
once you've gotten rid of them.
The most beneficial part of the top-to-bottom-strategy is that
it can be customized to your preference.
That's what makes it very opportunistic--it can be adjusted
according to your desires.
The top-to-bottom-strategy is a simple three step procedure that
will help you reevaluate your thought process.
This strategy deals with three levels. And each level can be
used to help you better furnish your home by weighing any item
you want or own against the top-to-bottom-strategy.
The 3 Levels
Level 3: Ceiling
Level 2: Wall
Level 1: Floor
You'll notice with each level you move from top to bottom.
Also notice that each level moves from ONLY taking up air
space to taking up walking space.
Items that DO NOT affect your walking zone are considered to
be items that take up air space.
The further up your item is positioned the freer your
walking zone. And the more space you have in your home. The
highest level that you can go is Level 3.
In which an item you purchase is mounted from your ceiling.
You may have, in the past, considered furnishing your home
using these three levels, but only under certain conditions.
For example, you may have first wanted a floor lamp but
instead decided to get a sconce installed on your wall or a
chandelier mounted from the ceiling rather than your first
That is a situation in which all three levels are used
But normally, you are likely to find that you have
constantly left out Level 2 and Level 3 when you consider
furnishing your home with a new item.
The reason for this is easy to understand--you normally see
what you want and then you buy it.
And when you've done this there has been very little
organization in furnishing your home.
Except with the thought of whether you have enough floor
space for the item in consideration.
Before today, when you've considered purchasing an item you
haven't really considered the three levels in combination
with the item that you want.
You were never taught, and never thought, much about the
three levels because history never offered such circumstances
