I don’t know how many of you out there have a cleaning lady to do your dirty work; but if you clean your own home here are a few décor tips to lighten your load on cleaning day.
Opt for a tailored look, with drapes and bed linens that barely graze the floor, to give your back and your dry cleaning bill a break.
Shag rugs are very stylish, but they also collect tons of dirt.
Stick with low-pile rugs or hardwood floors in high traffic areas like the living room and dining room.
If you’re desperate for a shag, try the bedroom instead.
That’s what he said.
If dusting every tiny knickknack on your perfectly styled shelves is not the way you want to spend Saturday afternoon, opt for a paired down version featuring only a few objects.
I have seen so many cool tile designs, but when planning a renovation keep in mind: ‘mo grout lines, ‘mo problems.
Mosaic tile floors are no picnic to clean, even if the grout is well sealed. Try a larger scale tile for the floor and a grout color that won’t show dirt easily.
If you are replacing a toilet, consider a sleek style for easier cleaning.
Life moves pretty fast, if you’re too busy cleaning your grout lines you could miss it.
