Whether you own your home or rent it from a landlord, housework and other chores around the house can quickly take up your free time. Whilst everybody wants their home to look great and be clean and tidy, there’s no denying that being faced with a long list of household chores day in, day out, can be a bit of a pain. Thankfully, there are many things that you can do to cut the workload down, without having to worry about your home looking worse in the process, or being a mess to live in. Here are some of our top tips to help you reduce the amount of work that you need to do in your home and garden, without compromising on having an amazing looking place.
Tip #1. Switch to Synthetic Lawn:
If you have a large garden, then you probably find yourself working in it an awful lot. This is great if you love gardening, but for those who aren’t too much of a fan of this kind of work, it can be a chore that you want to put off as much as possible. Luckily, synthetic lawn in Sydney has come on so much, it can barely be recognised as fake! The installation process for switching your lawn to synthetic turf is easier than ever, and most companies that sell it will also offer an installation service that you can take advantage of. Whilst it looks and feels just like the real thing, it never requires cutting or trimming – all you’ll need to do is wash it, which can be done easily and quickly with a spray bottle, or in the case of larger lawns, with a basic sprinkler than can be left on as you get on with other things.
Tip #2. Use Smart Storage Solutions:
Are you tired of picking things up off the floor in your home all the time? If so, then smart storage solutions could be an ideal option for you. For example, in your bedroom, you can use under-bed storage to stow away belongings, keeping them tidied away and out of sight without having to worry about sorting through them and throwing things away. You can also get some great smart storage solutions for your kitchen, such as hooks on the walls for hanging pots and pans, or sliding draws where you can stack all your plates and bowls away.
Tip #3. Have a Chores List:
Lastly, if there’s unfortunately no way of you being able to cut down the amount of work you have to do around your home, then creating a chores list for yourself can make it easier. Setting out a process for yourself of completing chores will not only mean that you can do them in the easiest order, it’ll also help make sure that you don’t forget about anything and have to come back to it later. In addition, you’ll also be able to ensure that you don’t do chores in an order that makes things more difficult for yourself – such as cleaning the floor and then realising you need to walk over it again to get another task done.
