Make the Bed Every Morning

This is one of the easiest and best ways to make your house look cleaner instantly, as it only requires a few minutes of your time each morning. Plus, getting into a neat bed at night is the perfect way to end the day.

Keep the Bathroom Tidy

Whether you have guests over or not, a clean bathroom is a must. Wiping down the mirror, sink and toilet a few times a week will ensure it always looks and smells clean. Also, try to keep small items like cotton balls in clear jars and stash cosmetics and hair tools in drawers or somewhere else out of view.


Light a Candle

Lighting a candle or investing in an essential oil diffuser not only adds a pleasant scent to a space, but also creates a fresh and warm ambience.


Load the Dishwasher

It’s so easy to just place dirty dishes and utensils in the sink and wait until it’s overflowing to put them away, but loading the dishes into the dishwasher right away will enhance the look of your kitchen immediately and save you clean-up time later on.

Utilize Matching Baskets and Containers

Baskets are the best way to store items in an organized way and keep them out of sight. There are so many great basket options available today that will enhance the look of your space and keep your house looking clean. Also, consider storing kitchen pantry items in matching containers.


Stack Items in Size Order

If you run out of baskets or have items like television remotes and books that you’d like to leave out, try stacking them in size order to make them appear organized.

Add Flowers or Plants

Placing fresh flowers or plants throughout your space can help your space look cared for, and can even help purify the air. Plus, who doesn’t feel happier at the sight of beautiful flowers?
