If you have an especially cluttered home, it becomes challenging to give it a deep cleaning all at once. While it was an extremely stressful process, there are some ways to go about it. Having a cluttered house can have a negative impression on your mind and make you more reserved socially. Decluttering actually has been linked to better mood and alleviation in the levels of stress and anxiety. However, it can be not easy to find the right motivation for decluttering your house. There are some ways to clean up your cluttered home and make it new and fresh.
Managing your clothes
The first step in taking care of all the clothes, bedsheets and blankets that are collected all around the room is to collect them and bring them all in one pile. Once you have a clear idea of what you need to tackle, start filing them into two categories: clothes that you need to get rid of and those that need to be washed. Don’t be afraid of getting rid of clothes even if they are special to you. Send them to go to a charity or repurpose them if you can. With the rest of the clothes, please give them a thorough cleaning and enjoy a relaxing laundry day. Once all your clothes are washed, dried, pressed and folded, it is now time to discover and come up with a new organisation technique. The best way to organise your clothes is by categorising them as regular wear, home wear and fancy wear. Keep them separated and in an organised fashion so that you can reach them without knocking the pile off.
Dust and clean
When it comes to the floor space and other furniture around the house, you will potentially need a good dusting and cleaning session. Start by gathering all the stray things around the house and categorising them into different piles. Once done, start dusting and wiping the floors and furniture before dealing with anything else. Once you have done this, it is time to put things back to their place and arrange them one at a time. It is always helpful to keep a checklist ready and check things as you go, which serves as reinforcement in itself. Once you have clean and tidy floor space, you can think of new ways to arrange the furniture and give your room a new look.
Buying new decor
You must only buy new living room decor and other decorative items for your house after you have cleaned it properly. This allows you to have a clearer perspective on what you want and plan before buying an item. There are plenty of things that you can buy which will allow you to give your house a subtle makeover and provide you with a sense of accomplishment. Always look for affordable alternatives for expensive home decor items and Research them well before spending your money.
Give your house deep cleaning, clear the clutter and give yourself space to breathe in a happy and loving home.
