How to Keep Your Home Tidy

Whether you are living in a small apartment or a large house, keeping your space organized and tidy can be a challenge. Furniture can be a significant source of household mess if not properly managed. To help you maintain a neat environment, we've put together some easy-to-follow tips to help you minimize mess with furniture in your home.

Choose Storage-Friendly Furniture

One of the best ways to keep your home tidy is by investing in storage-friendly furniture. Pieces like ottomans, benches, and chests offer efficient storage space for everyday items like magazines, shoes, and children's toys. You can also choose furniture with built-in storage space, like a bed frame with drawers or shelves.

Protect Your Furniture

Protecting your furniture from spills and stains is a crucial step in minimizing mess around the home. Invest in furniture made with durable materials that are easy to clean, like our range of Plywood Formica furniture that resists messes and makes it easy to wipe clean. You can also add removable cushion covers to your sofas and chairs, making them easy to wash or replace when needed.

Establish Clean Zones

Defining clean zones in your house can help minimize mess and make cleaning more manageable. Setting up a landing zone for jackets, shoes, and bags by the entrance helps keep dirt out of the main living areas. In addition, designate certain areas of the house as a food and drink-free zone to reduce the risk of stains and spills on your furniture.

Use Proper Cleaning Methods

Using the right cleaning methods is essential when it comes to maintaining a tidy home. For example, avoid using water to clean wooden furniture and use a mild cleaner specifically designed for use on wood. Always use a soft cloth when cleaning surfaces to avoid scratching, and keep harsh chemicals, like bleach, away from furniture surfaces.


A tidy home is a happy home
