We have all heard the saying a tidy house can give you a tidy mind, but do you believe in it? The truth is, if you are surrounded by mess, dirt and clutter, then the chances are you are not going to feel your happy positive self. Right now we all need a bit of happiness and joy in our lives, and as we are spending more time at home, it might be time to look at your surroundings and make some changes. With that in mind, here are some of the things you can do to give you a clean and tidy home that stays that way.
Decluttering is good for the soul
It might be that you have built up a fair bit of clutter in the last few months. Papers, books, general stuff might be clogging up your shelves, drawers and cupboards. It is time to get rid of any clutter. Take a more minimalistic approach and look for the things you want, love or need in your life if there are things you want to hold on to, or furniture you don’t want to part with just yet, why not consider storage facilities to keep it stored away for a while? Reorganising your wardrobes and other places you store things can also help you to feel more refreshed as you start to clear away the things you no longer want in your life.
Deep clean every room
Now onto the cleaning side of things. This again can make a great first impression and have you feeling so much better, so it is time to give each room a full deep clean. It’s the jobs you don’t normally do when you are cleaning up or doing your daily cleans. It is the skirting boards, it’s moving the furniture to hoover and mop underneath. It’s rearranging things to make better use of the space in a room. Once the deep clean is done, you can then easily maintain the cleanliness. Especially just before a viewing.
Is it time to give your home a bit of a refresh
Maybe now is the time to start thinking about a refresh in your home. Are there any rooms that are looking a little dated? Will there be any rooms that have been decorated specific to your taste but that has now changed? Such as a pink bedroom for a girl or a bright colour that may not appeal to you anymore? It could be time to pull out the brush and paint and give those walls a lick of paint in a neutral tone or something you love. It can help to make a home feel fresh and updated and magnify the cleanliness and tidiness within the space.
Make more use of the space you have
Finally, you need to make your home work for you, now more than ever. Staying at home means you may be working out more from your living room, or working from home to do your day to day job. Creating zones and areas to do these things can help you to make use of the space you have in your home, and also allow you to strike more of a balance between being at home, and doing things like working.
Let’s hope these tips help you to create a home that helps with your mindset.
