If there’s one thing that people hate, it’s having to live in a dirty
home. Some people can spend hours
cleaning and still feel like their home doesn’t look as tidy as it should. You don’t need new cleaning products or hire
a maid to make your house look clean. All
you need to do is remember these essential tips for making your home look
Lose Light Colors
Having a beige or light colored carpet may go with your décor scheme, but
its light shade could be making your home look more dirty than it really
is. Light rugs start to show their age a
little earlier than darker rugs, and stains are much more difficult to
completely remove from light rugs. Look
into furnishing your home with black rugs or darker
colored carpets. It’ll give your room a
new look, and it’ll help your place look a lot more tidy.
When you notice a stain on your tile floor, don’t break out the mop just
yet. If you want your home to look
cleaner, practice spot cleaning instead of major cleaning projects. Focus on cleaning up stains and spots instead
of the entire area. Spot cleaning takes
less time to do, and it’ll really help make your home look cleaner in case you
have to clean in a hurry.
Focus On the Three “T”s
If you want to make your home look cleaner focus on spending time
cleaning these three things: your tabletops, toilets, and televisions. People’s eyes are naturally drawn to those
three things, and if they look dusty or dirty your whole room can look less
clean than it actually is.
Clutter doesn’t have to come from trash and junk, having a shelf full of
knick-knacks and a wall full of pictures can make your room look way too
full. Go around your home and see which
pictures and décor items you can stand to take down, and aim to take at least
two things from areas that are very full.
