Ready to transform your dwelling and implement some new methods and cleaning practices? Read on below and get started immediately!
Our first essential tip starts in the bedroom. This step is easy, simple and should be part of everyone's daily routine. Once you wake in the morning, after a nap, or whenever you use the bed, always make the bed. You will be surprised how one small task will ensure your room feels organised and stays clean.
When you use a surface in your home, remember to leave it neat and tidy. This includes coffee tables, kitchen counters, windowsills, bathroom sinks, and any other surface that might be present in your abode. Never leave cups, glasses and crockery on your benches, and ensure the surface is polished and clean.
Everything in your dwelling should have a place and a home. To do this you may need to rethink your storage, but in doing so, you will ensure your abode is free from clutter, chaos and mess.
In this bedroom the designers have opted for a sleek and welcoming aesthetic. They have achieved this by focusing on keeping the room free from any overcrowding. Each piece of furniture, accessory and accoutrement has space around it, ensuring a fuss-free ambience and atmosphere.
When decorating and organising your home, try to keep things off of the floor. In this room we see a number of cushions that have been elegantly stacked and help infuse a feeling of relaxation. However, the rest of the space is free from clutter, and works well to keep the living area neat, tidy and ordered.
When you use a dish, glass, utensil or any piece of kitchenware, make sure you pop it into the dishwasher after use. Get in the habit of regularly filling, running and emptying the dishwasher, and ensure your worktops are free from mess and dirt.
When in doubt, go minimal with your interior design. Minimalist interiors are fabulous for feeling clean, ordered and organised, and as an added benefit, can look brilliantly sophisticated and sleek.
Finally, we head back to the bedroom. Ensure you keep side tables free from junk and domestic miscellany, remembering to add only a minimal, curated selection of accessories on display.
Additionally, and throughout every room of your home, keep your throw cushions, textiles, and other ornaments well-arranged, orderly and neat.
