The more, the better! When it comes to things in your home that you need to find space for, this saying can present a problem. To avoid the chaos and clutter of your house, use our tips for an airy and comfortable home.
Spring Is in the Air
The first rays of the sun and blooming flowers indicate that it is time for a big spring cleaning. It is often a strenuous and demanding task if we don’t maintain the house regularly, but the end result is always rewarding—a clean home. In order for spring cleaning to make sense, it is not enough to put all the things in the closet or under the bed, it is necessary to clean everything thoroughly. This is where problems often occur because you don’t know where to start, due to many piled-up things.
3, 2, 1, Action!
That is why you should come up with a plan and organize your time. It is important to be aware of what the real situation is like and stick to a cleaning plan. Bear in mind that spring cleaning can’t be done in a few hours, but rather plan a weekend activity in which the whole family can participate. Start from one room and when you are done, move on to the next. The first step is to clear all cabinets, shelves, drawers, boxes… Take all the items out and start sorting them. One pile for garbage, one for donations, and one for keeping. Be ruthless during this process, don’t attach yourself to unnecessary items. Otherwise, you will find it difficult to throw them out of the house. Put the items you use every day or several times a week in an easily accessible place; the things you need, but use infrequently, cleverly put in boxes or vacuum bags that save space. Before putting everything back in its place, clean the shelves.
It is often said that the minimalist style is not only a style of home decoration but also a lifestyle. Its concept lies in the saying: “Less is more!” After cleaning your home and throwing out unnecessary things, try to think about how to keep a minimalist approach to decorating. A handy trick on how to accomplish this is “one thing in, one thing out”. This rule is especially true for clothes that can overcrowd closets very quickly. The advantage of this approach to decorating and living is an elegant and airy home. Also, due to the smaller number of things, you will find it easier to manage, and cleaning your home will become a less demanding task.
