US – Open Spaces is encouraging people to tidy their homes – using its storage solutions – as a new form of wellbeing.
Post-Marie Kondo, the brand is highlighting how burnout from work and daily demands can be manifest in the home as clutter and untidiness. In response, Open Spaces is positioning tidying as a mindful part of domestic living with a series of home storage units, shelves and storage sets for kitchens and bedrooms.
The direct-to-consumer range is supported by a series of online tidying guides curated to suit a variety of personality types. Tapping into people’s desire for a sense of control in the home, while also giving them time to focus on friends, loved ones, hobbies and rest, Open Spaces wants its storage products to help make the home a haven. ‘When a rising sensation of burnout began to encroach on our wellbeing, home became a counterpoint to our busy world – a sacred space to focus on the most fulfilling aspects of our daily lives,’ reads its website.
As we explore in our Home Cleaning Market, glossy domestic influencers and design-led, eco-friendly start-ups are increasingly positioning tidying up as an act of wellbeing.
