How To Create Clean Interiors That Require Minimal Effort

It may seem too good to be true, but we assure you that it is possible to create beautiful and clean interiors that require little effort in order to keep them looking this way.

Desperate to find out how this can be done? Well, keep reading for some excellent interior decorating tips and tricks that could lead you to that beautiful and low maintenance home you wish for.

1. Choose grey carpets

Our carpets see a lot of action from day-to-day. Besides the general wear and tear and dirt that they experience from being walked on, they also suffer from spills and stains from time to time. All carpets require regular maintenance; however, some do far more than others. On a light carpet, every little bit of dirt shows up. So, you may feel as if you are constantly vacuuming and dealing with marks in order to keep it looking clean. However, with a pile in a grey shade, everyday marks would not show up as clearly, if at all. You may wish to check out carpet suppliers and fitters like Donnelly Watson that have a wide range of colours available, from very light to dark grey. The other benefit of a grey carpet is that being a neutral and natural colour, it goes well with many other colours and will always look stylish.


2. Matt finishings

Furniture and appliances with a matt finish are much easier to keep looking clean than those that have a gloss finish or that are made of glass. Many people choose gloss materials for their kitchen. While these can look very attractive, they do require a lot of maintenance to keep them clean. Giving them a clean in the same way as you would for other kinds of surfaces is unfortunately not enough. They must also be polished after cleaning in order to remove any streaks left behind by the cloth, just like glass. So, if you have large areas of gloss or glass, this can be a big task. Fingerprints also show up very clearly on shiny finishings. If you want an easier job, matt finishings are the best option for you.


3. Go storage crazy

Do you feel like you are always tidying things up from surfaces, tables and the floor? Do you also find yourself not knowing where to put a lot of these items? When you are creating a low maintenance home, smart storage is an essential component. Shelves, boxes, storage footstools and ottomans will all be extremely handy. With plenty of storage, everything can be put away easily and neatly. And when everything has a home, you don’t have to spend time searching for an appropriate place for them to go.

As you can see, creating clean interiors that require minimal effort can be done. In fact, these are just a few tips and tricks on how this can be achieved. So keep researching and you can make your home even more beautiful and hassle-free. Have fun!
