How To Further Simplify Your Home

simplify your home

If you run your home on autopilot, then it’s likely that it’ll become a little complicated and chaotic. After all, simplicity in the home doesn’t just happen. You have to make it happen, by doing things such as decluttering. While that’ll be a great first step, it shouldn’t be the end of your journey. For starters, unless you take extra steps, you might find that you fall into the same problems as before, or you might encounter entirely new problems. In this blog, we’re going to run through some useful tips that’ll help you simplify your home from top to bottom.


Think Before You Buy

Part of the reason your home began to feel cluttered in the first place is that you were buying too many items for the home. And unless you stop that habit, then you’ll just end up with the same issue later on down the line. If you’re a classic impulse buyer, then look at developing some habits that’ll help you to stop. One such method is to wait 24 hours before buying something. You’ll usually find that by the time the 24 hours is up, you no longer want the item. 


Easy to Clean

You’ll hope that your home is relaxing. The problem is that, sometimes, our homes require too much effort. For example, you might find that you’re spending too much time cleaning your property. While you can’t avoid this task entirely, you can make it easier — and thus reduce the amount of time that it takes. It’s all about using materials that are easy to clean. For example, solid oak flooring is much easier to keep clean than other types of flooring (and it also looks great). In the bathroom, you should use large tiles — that’ll mean less grout to clean. In the living room, opt for a leather couch, which is easier to maintain than couches made of other materials.


To-Do Lists

You’ll have a busy life outside of the house. And, as such, it can sometimes be easy to overlook some tasks that have to be taken care of inside the property. One way to get around this is to keep a to-do list. Every time you see something that has to be taken care of, write it down. And then dedicate some time each week to going through the list. 

Solid Organisation

Organisation is the key to everything. A well-organised home will never fall into a state of disrepair. Organisation can extend to everything; it could mean allocating chores, investing in smart storage solutions, spending time arranging the garden, and more. 


In the Kitchen

Finally, look at ways to simplify your home life even further by streamlining your kitchen processes. Meal prep is often one of the more chaotic elements of home life, but it doesn’t have to be. Learn the art of preparing simple, healthy meals that use just a few ingredients, and remember to clean as you go, and you’ll find that your time spent in the kitchen is much more straightforward.
