Neat and clean looking homes are what we wish for every day. But in this fast pace life, it is difficult to take out time to deep clean the house or maintain the uncluttered look for long. So here are three simple, fast and efficient ways to uncluttered looking homes:

    1. Make your Bed:

The bed occupies the significant part of your bedroom, so why not start here. Making your bed first thing in the morning will give you instant gratification in less than five minutes. If that doesn’t motivates you then just imagine the sense of relaxation when coming back to a well-made bed in the evening after a long day’s work.

    2. Keep the horizontal surfaces clean:

Avoid the temptation to just pile on stuff on the various flat surfaces around your house. The dining tables, bedside table, kitchen slab all are potential clutter collectors which make space look cluttered and unorganised. The long-term solution to keep the horizontal surfaces is to give everything you own a place that is preferably not on the surface unless it adds some functional or aesthetic value to space.

    3. One touch Rule:

Following this rule in your life can prove to the most helpful way to keep your space uncluttered. According to this rule, you touch the item only once to keep it in its demarcated space. That is if you come back from office don’t leave your jacket outside on the sofa, keep it where it belongs that is on the coat stand or inside your wardrobe. Don’t leave your coffee mug on your nightstand instead take it along with you into the kitchen when you next get up. This may seem to have initial effort, but if you come to think of it, you would eventually have to place the item in its place so why not do it in one go.

 

I hope you will give these tips a try before the new year to make your space look neat, tidy and uncluttered.
