Yet even the most minimalistic home interior design can start to look over-cluttered thanks to the daily activities of family life. One of the essential elements of harmonious home designs is having a place for everything, and everything in its place.
Perth display homes can give you some clever tidy home tips, as can these quick and easy spring cleaning tips we’ve compiled just for you:
The best home builders are those that include smart storage without compromising on style. Think long kitchen sculleries and large pantries, big laundry cupboards, ample bathroom storage, clever charging nooks for technology and wonderful walk-in robes. You can then build on this with your own space saving ideas, such as ottomans and bay windows that can cleanly store magazines, DVDs and books inside.
While quality new home builders will include ample storage in their home designs, it can quickly overflow if you refuse to part with items you no longer need or use. If you haven’t used it within a year, get rid of it! Send those old jumpers to the op shop and bundle up those tired blankets for the dog home.
Paper can be the ultimate enemy of a tidy home design – just when you think you’ve cleared every surface in the open plan living area, the simple act of checking the mail box can leave papers covering the kitchen bench or dining table. Simply having an ‘inbox’ for all incoming papers can maintain the uncluttered nature of your home interior design.
The temptation to dump school bags, books, handbags, shopping, letters and jackets on the dining table is high in most households. So make the dining table and kitchen bench ‘no clutter zones’. With this tidy home tip, anything dumped here will be confiscated! Before long, it will become second nature to carry those items those few extra steps to their proper place.
Just as display homes are regularly cleaned, set aside the first Saturday afternoon of every month for spring cleaning. Get all family members on board – with so much notice, they have no excuse not to keep it free! Breaking spring cleaning down into a small monthly task (rather than one big yearly one) can mean your new house design stays fresher and cleaner for longer.
