Cleaning the whole house
This involves cleaning every room in the house to ensure a clean and healthy space. Depending on the amount of dirt and the size of each room, cleaning can be done in two ways: automated or manual. So use equipment such as:
- Mop, wet broom, brush, sponge, steel wool for manual cleaning;
- The mop or auto scrubber, the steam cleaner, the brushes are in series for the automated cleaning.
Also, use detergent or cleaning products that match your wall and floor.
Wall repainting and floor renovation
After removing all the dirt, repaint the walls or apply self-adhesive wallpaper.
If you choose to repaint, use white paint to create a bright atmosphere in each room. It’s a versatile and timeless paint while bringing a touch of harmony to any room.
Adhesive wallpapers also offer an undeniable aesthetic. They come in many textures and patterns to suit all tastes.
For the bedroom, choose neutral colors such as gray, white, or beige that give a feeling of clarity. If you want to paint your room with bright color, apply it only to the headboard for a sense of serenity.
On the other hand, first sand the damaged areas and strip the waxed areas when renovating the floor. This allows the new layer of varnish or wax to adhere well. In case of squeaking, strengthen the fasteners of the wooden boards or apply talcum powder in every gap.
Installing the right furniture
For a good comfort in the house, you can:
Install an ornate rug
The living room is the centerpiece of every home. It is, therefore, necessary to focus on the decorative aspect. The carpet is one of the elements not to be neglected, not only for decoration but also to isolate the floor against noise and to bring softness under your feet.
Install the sofa before the other furniture
Place the sofa in a corner or against a wall to save more space. But if you have a large room, you can put it in the center or in front of the fireplace.
Choose furniture that fits the size of your living room.
It’s up to you to decide on the components of your living room, but avoid cluttering it with large furniture. So, for a friendly look, choose the following furniture:
- The TV cabinet to place your TV, decoder, player, and console
- The coffee table adapted to the size of the sofa
- The storage units, such as the bookcase or the sideboard, depending on the remaining space
