Listen, the last thing anyone likes spending their time doing is cleaning. Unless you’re weird (no offense.) It’s time-consuming, your hands get chemical-y, and it’s not exactly the most pleasant of activities.
While it cannot be avoided, there are ways you can make your home easier to clean. We are gonna give you some tips on how to design a clean-easy home.
When it comes to flooring, you want something that does not have a bunch of grout lines such as stone or tile. Stained concrete with a protective sealer is the most easy to clean, followed by laminate and then hardwoods.
If your budget allows for it, we say go with the hardwood. If not, stick to the concrete or laminate! Both options can look beautiful and still enable you to easily clean up when it’s time to.
- Central Vac
These are still a thing.
Get a central vacuum unit installed with sweep inlets. This will allow you to vacuum/sweep your floor without having to bend down and pick up all the particles with a dust pan. Sounds like a win-win if you ask us.
Do not neglect your walls. When you first think of cleaning, you generally don’t think of walls as something that need that much attention.
We dare you to go home and look closer at your walls. Especially areas such as the kitchen backsplash, shower tile, and hallways. Clean easy fix: faux wall paneling. At Faux Direct. we offer faux stone, faux brick, and faux wood panels that are completely impervious to moisture, making them a sinch to clean. Use these in the bathroom, as a kitchen backsplash, or even as an accent wall and you will have a far easier time cleaning than before. No harsh chemicals necessary!
- Furniture Fabrics
Choose fabrics that are stain resistant and durable. Many people actually opt for outdoor fabric, even on indoor furniture. You really can’t tell the difference and it is far easier to clean when spills happen. Listen, if you have kids or plan on having them- don’t even think about spending a fortune on fabrics unless you choose the durable stuff. If you have kids, you know exactly what we are talking about.
- Storage-Friendly Furniture
Lastly, try to choose furniture pieces that also double as storage. For example, coffee tables, bench seating, and ottomans are all pieces that can double as storage. Use these items to store blankets, extra pillows, and things that you don’t need out at all times. This will greatly de-clutter your home and help you to clean up quickly when you need to.There you go, guys! Hope this helps when it comes to designing a home that cleans-easy!
