We all struggle with keeping our homes tidy from time to time. As a premier remodeling company, Callen Construction loves working with clients to make their homes as comfortable as possible. We’re happy to share these tips to help make your home a little neater and a little cleaner.
- Hold off on buying storage bins and containers. Before heading for the store, take stock of the areas you want to clean up and organize, then sort through and decide what to keep and what to pitch. Once you have familiarized yourself with what is left, you’ll know which organizing products will work best, and as you shop, you will be able to picture exactly what will be going in them.
- Don’t overload your space. Whether it’s books on the bookshelf, knick-knacks scattered around the room, or family pictures, too much of anything will make your rooms seem disorganized and over-crowded. When it comes to organizing and displaying your personal items, less is more. And the nice thing about having fewer belongings is that it’s easier to clean around them.
- Incorporate mini cleaning sessions. What’s the best way to keep a room clean? Don’t let it get dirty in the first place! For example, take a few minutes each morning or evening to wipe down the bathroom mirror and do a once-over of the sink and counter. The same can be done in the kitchen for the sink, countertops, and table. A few minutes of cleaning every day can save you from heavy scrubbing later.
- Move your message center. Nothing makes a kitchen look messier than a refrigerator buried under invitations, school papers, sticky notes, and photos, so clear off the fridge and instead hang a bulletin board in your kitchen that can be used to corral all those items. The best option could be a dry-erase/bulletin board combo that is designated as the message center of the house, where everyone knows to check for important reminders and messages.
