Tip 1: Clean It Often
I try to clean my home from top to bottom at least once every two weeks. Be sure you are taking that phrase “top to bottom” literally as well. I’m not just suggesting a thorough treatment. You clean from the top of the room down so that you knock the dust off and pick it up with the Hoover or mop. Make sure you get in all the nooks and crannies.
Also, spend extra time focusing where the walls meet the floor. This is where muck and dirt tend to build up, and you want to get rid of it as often as possible.
Tip 2: Tidy Up
I often find I’m the most unhappy when there are untidy places all over my home. I do my best to clean it up, but the biggest problem I found was that there was nowhere to put all the junk. That’s why I bought a couple of storage units for each room. These blend in with the rest of the furniture and do not look unsightly. I can put away the films, music and games out of sight so that my home looks clean and tidy.
Tip 3: Get Rid Of The Clutter
I’ve been reading online about the minimalist design technique. It’s how interior decorators lay out show homes, and there’s no reason it won’t work in any residential property. It involves minimising the amount of furniture in each room. For instance, in the lounge there should only be enough chairs for each person in the house to sit on. You should also try to limit the amount of decorative pieces you have on display. There only needs to be a couple in each room. Any more will make the space look and feel cluttered.
Tip 4: Upgrade Furniture
The next step to consider is upgrading the furniture in your home. All furniture goes out of style eventually and needs replacing. We can look at the bathroom as an example. The best way to upgrade your bathroom is by buying the furniture in a set. That way everything will match and it will look very fashionable and stylish. You can have a look on http://www.bellabathrooms.co.uk/bathroom-furniture.html for some examples.
Tip 5: But New Fixtures
Or, you could buy new fixtures for the room. Again, if we look at the bathroom you could replace your taps and faucets. While this may seem like a small adjustment, it will have a large effect on your overall perception of the space. The right fixture can add a unique style to your family home.
I hope you have found these tips useful. If you use them, your house will always look stylish no matter how big your family is.
