While you might work extra hard to keep your home flawlessly clean, we at Jettison Express are aware that when it comes to organisation, you might end up making your spotlessly clean home appear disorganised and untidy.
Some of the most frequent home organising mistakes people make while trying to get their home to look clean, neat, and of course, tip-top have been compiled to help you ensure that your home is looking its best!
No Display Countertops
Your home can look messy if it is cluttered, but a scattered environment can also be problematic. This is particularly true in the kitchen, where a clear countertop may reveal every dirt you don’t want guests to see. Display any items you use frequently, such as a toaster, blender, or fruit basket.
A Fridge Packed With Magnets
Many of us mistakenly believe that a fridge filled with photos, notes, and magnets makes a wonderful family centrepiece, but in reality, this might be the complete opposite. Why not use a tiny clipboard or noticeboard in the room instead of cluttering up the front of one of the most used areas of your home? You can keep track of everything there, so it ends up being the family’s go-to information source.
Having Your Cabinets Completely Filled Up
We are all guilty of possessing that one closet, cabinet, or drawer that serves only to hold the “stuff” that does not have another place in our house. While this is helpful for keeping the rest of the house tidy, it can really make you feel very depressed when you open the door and find a mess.
Be sure to double-check everything once in a while; if you are not using it or you are not likely to need it, throw it away. Put the leftover stuff in smaller containers (like Tupperware) after you have cleaned out the area. This will maintain everything organised and guarantee that items are simple to find.
A Messy Corridor
Most likely, the hallway or front porch will be used to enter your house. This area of the house is frequently packed with bags, jackets, shoes, umbrellas, and other accessories. Its placement can significantly change how your home appears.
Have a basket to store those discarded shoes in and, if you can, have a designated spot for bags so that these are not strewn around the space.
If you can, select an area for bags so that they are not left lying around the room. Have a basket to put those old shoes in.
Not Putting Label On The Container
It’s great that you’ve decided to use containers or bins as your organiser. It describes the act of discarding things out of sight and out of memory. But what happens when you need something and are completely unable to recall where you put it?
Use labels to prevent this from happening and the possibility that you will then mess up everything in search of it. Anything that would provide you with a hint as to the contents will be helpful. They might just be the room the items came from.
So those are the top mistakes that regular people like me make when organising our homes. We hope that you have learnt some techniques to maintain the appearance of your home, but if you require the help of a seasoned clearance firm, get in touch.
