Apartment living is fun!
Everything and anything you need is right there… down the sky-soaring stories, around the corner of the streets. Entertainment hubs, rocking pubs, city-traversing stops…everything!
Limited floor space and a whole lot to fit in, keeping an apartment clean and organized can undoubtedly be a big challenge. It Can Be Stressful.
So we thought about making things easier and less stressful for you by sharing some tips to keep your apartment neat, clean and tidy.
Separate your apartment rooms into zones
Quite often, due to small space, an apartment room has to serve many purposes. For example, a living room may be used as a dining room, TV lounge as well as a playroom for children. This obviously makes a room look cluttered and disorganized.
What can you do about it?
Instead of just throwing everything together, try separating your apartment rooms into zones. You can practice different coloring schemes to highlight individual zones in a room. Use rolling carts to keep items organized for each zone.
Cut the clutter
Space isn’t always the problem in apartments; sometimes, the problem is having too much stuff. Extra stuff. Stuff that you don’t really need.
It’s important to cut all this clutter.
How to do that?
One really cool trick (that always works) is to take a snapshot of each room of your apartment and then review what items you need to keep, and which ones can you do without.
But what about that lamp shade my grandma gifted me? I can’t simply throw it away!
You don’t have to.
Anything you don’t need, but is dear to you (or you think it may be used in the future), you can put it in your store room.
Don’t have a store room in your apartment?
You can rent a storage unit in your area; websites, like Storage.com, can help you locate a storage unit near you.
Do a little cleaning everyday
Walk through your apartment and make a list of the cleaning chores. Everyday do one chore to keep from getting overwhelmed. Set reminders and maintain a log to make the cleaning process effective. Even a few minutes of apartment cleaning every day will help you keep your apartment neat and clean.
Pro tip: Reserve heavy cleaning chores, like mopping the floors, vacuuming the carpets and upholstery, for weekends. Small chores should be kept for weekdays as these are less likely to tire you.
If you live with your spouse, you can share the cleaning duties with them.
Hire an apartment cleaning service once a month
An apartment or residential cleaning service expertly handles all types of cleaning chores and performs deep cleaning. It’s advisable to hire an apartment cleaning service once a month for thorough cleanings. They’ll clean your carpets, floors, cabinets, upholstery, walls – everything. This will help you keep your apartment clean and uncluttered.
