house that is clean and tidy will make it even more pleasant and inviting to our guests, as well as to ourselves. A dirty or messy house will absorb all of our energy and make us despondent to be there, regardless of the fact that it is our own. Whether you have a large or small house, we must all take care of our homes and keep it clean. 

Cleaning can sometimes turn out to be a pretty tough job, however. What we need to do in terms of tidying up our living spaces actually becomes a burden on our shoulders. Not only do we have cleaning tasks that need to be performed at regular intervals, but we often also faced with ad hoc cleaning tasks that demand our immediate attention. Faced with this reality, many of us asked how we can simplify cleaning our homes? 

Guided by this ever-present need and the dilemmas we are facing, homify has but together list of helpful tips and tricks that will make your cleaning life so much easier and your living environment so much more pleasant. Join us and see if you can pick up some helpful hints!

1. Maintain a tidy foyer

The first impression of the house, the entrance hall, is worthy of careful attention when it comes to cleanliness and order. A tidy entrance is the first step to a clean a pleasant home. As we can see in this image, closets and cupboards in this space will do very well, creating an uniform appearance while also ensuring ample storage space to hide away all the clutter. 

2. Keep a clean kitchen sink

The sink and kitchen counters should always be clean and tidy. A messy kitchen countertop can transform the appearance of an entire home into one of disorder and disaster. Make sure that you have enough storage space for all your kitchen goods, and if you don't, maybe it's time to reconsider what you actually need in the kitchen. 

3. Get organised

We cannot overstate the value of having a particular space for every item in your entire home.  When all the supplies in your kitchen cabinets,  your wardrobe, all of your cleaning supplies, children's toys etc. has it's own little corner of the world, you are sure to experience harmony in your home. This is perhaps the most important step to a clean and clear home. 

4. Decide on your time of cleaning in advance

Another helpful tip is to decide on the day of cleaning in advance, and sticking to that no matter what. For example, if you decide that Wednesdays is bathroom cleaning days, do not allow anything to cause the deterioration of this plan, delaying the cleaning business by removing yourself to another job. Procrastination is the main enemy of cleaning activities!

5. Try to make cleaning fun

If procrastination is the enemy of cleaning activities, music is your best friend! Turn on your favorite music when you start to work. Music is a wonderful companion that makes everything bearable that we find unpleasant.

6. Don't accumulate more dirty laundry

We should note a simple suggestion that can save you quite a bit of trouble. Today, many to most washing machines offer options for half-loads and shorter cycles. Don't wait too long in accumulating a full load if you have the option to clean smaller collections. Not only will you keep your home clear of clutter, but you will also have the whole house smelling of fresh laundry all the time!
