If you’d rather be sitting on the couch enjoying a nice glass of wine rather than cleaning the house, this article is for you! There are a number of ways you can design your home to make it easier to clean. Whether you’re building remodelling or moving into a new home, here are some tips to help you make your home easy to clean.
Floors are always getting dirty, they accumulate dust and dirt and they constantly need to be cleaned. Carpets are the worst thing to clean spills or mud off. Having carpet in your home means no shoes inside the house and no food on the carpet. If these kinds of precaution sounds like too much effort, then you better have tiles or floorboards put in. They make cleaning up a dream. All you need to do is sweep up the mess and give it a good mop.
However, if you like the feeling of a fluffy carpet under your feet, then opt for carpet tiles. Carpet tiles come in a wide variety of textures and colours. They’re just like any other carpet in regards to cleaning. However if you do have a spill, you can take out that one tile and clean it in the sink, genius!
Bar stools can be a great way to make cleaning your home a lot more convenient. Bar stools are often light, perfect for manoeuvrability. Bar stools are ideal because they tuck neatly under the counter top. However, if you’re after something even more convenient you could invest in suspended bar stools. This means no legs to clean around and results in the ability to sweep under them in a jiffy.
Slipcovers are the ultimate way to protect your furniture. They’re a great option for easy clean upholstery, as long as they are machine washable. You can have them custom made to suit your furniture and style. If you do get them custom made just make sure they are made from machine washable materials.
When building or moving into your new home, plan your storage carefully. Make sure you take advantage of every nook and cranny in your home. Wasted space just means clutter elsewhere in your home. If you want your home to be easy to clean, allow for plenty of room to store items in. Put storage close to where you actually use certain items for convenience. When buying furniture for your home always choose multipurpose furniture. For example, under the bed storage is perfect for holding all your unused bedding.
It makes sense that the more space you have, the more things you will eventually acquire. If you plan on building a new home, think about how much space you actually need. You may want a big beautiful home but that big home is going to be extra hard to keep clean. If you’re not building, reducing the amount of things you have in your home will make it a lot easier for you to clean.
