Is there a way to design a home that's easy to maintain and looks relatively neat without much effort?


I want some tips for a home that is clutter free.


You can have a spic and span home with these easy and essential tips:

Choosing materials which suit your requirements and are durable is the key.

⦁ Vitrified tiles, granite, and marble are some of the popular choices for flooring you can go for, since they are easy to maintain and clean.

⦁ Choose paints like semi-gloss paint and satin paints which produce a visible shine to walls and are also durable and washable. You can also consider vinyl wall coverings which can be easily wiped down and are affordable too.

⦁ Upholstery fabrics like leather, microfiber, and vinyl are good choices as they are durable, stain resistant and easy to clean. You can go for darker colors like grey, and black to hide stains.

⦁ Opt for C-shaped, L-shaped and parallel kitchens since they save you a lot of space, and are easy to maintain!

⦁ Quartz can be used for countertops. Eventhough it has the look and performance of stones like granite or marble, it is non-porous, won’t stain, and is very easy to clean.

⦁ Choose darker colours in satin or gloss finishes for kitchen cabinets as they look attractive and are easy to maintain. Avoid open cabinets in kitchen since it can leave frequent stains and cleaning these will be a task. Place your washing sink away from wood to avoid mold and rot.

⦁ For windows I would recommend frosted glass with dark shaded frames around. This will be easy to maintain.

⦁ If you want some storage space and you lack one, you can have Cabinets of ceiling height which are useful in saving space and storing away unnecessary things.

⦁ If you have a small home, a bed with storage will be a great option.

⦁ Make your bed as soon as you wake up.

⦁ Keep the toiletries in place after using the bathroom. Remember to wipe water off the wet floors.

⦁ Throw used clothes in a laundry bag to avoid any clutter.

⦁ Dust one room every day. It will keep your home cleaner and healthier too!

⦁ Encourage family members to keep away used shoes before they get into the house.

⦁ Empty and clean the refrigerator at least once a week.

⦁ Designate boxes and shelves for children’s toys, books, and clothes where they can put easily.

⦁ Put away newspapers or magazines lying around.

⦁ Discard trash every day to ensure your home is clean and odour free.
