You want to spend as much time as possible enjoying all of your hard work and effort after you’ve worked so hard to buy a home. There is a lot of upkeep involved in homes, particularly if you are the owner and want it to look its best all the time.
We all lead busy lives, and it’s natural that once you get home from a long day at work, you won’t feel like doing housekeeping or gardening. Take a look at some simple methods to keep your home low-maintenance so you can spend more time admiring it and less time working.
4 Tips for a Low Maintenance Home
I thought I would share my 4 favourite low maintenance tips for your home ( aka my home). Simple tips so I can spend my time blogging instead of maintaining lol.
1) Plant evergreen plants in your garden to keep the heat off your house during the summer months
Making sure that your garden is beautiful and tidy, as well as well cared for, may be a time-consuming effort. Why not relieve some of the strain on your back by using evergreen plants in your garden? This way, you won’t have to put in as much effort to maintain your garden looking great all year?
Evergreen plants don’t need to be watered on a regular basis and look nice all year. All you have to do now and then is cut back the leaves to keep them looking neat and tidy.
2) Lay ceramic tile on your floors.
Floors, both indoors and out, can be difficult to maintain clean and tidy. Consider installing tiled floors throughout your home to make cleaning easier and to give your home a more modern and clean appearance. Because tiling tools are so simple to use, why not consider some tiling alternatives for both the interior and outside of your home?
There will be loads of styles to choose from your local flooring store. If you get rid of the grass and replace them with tiled patios, you’ll have even less work to do in the garden! If you notice our back patio it is all stone and trex, low maintennace for more swimming/lounging time.
3) Choose themes that will never go out of style.
If you don’t enjoy decorating your home, adopt timeless looks for your rooms. A fantastic approach to accomplish this is to paint your walls neutral colours and then accent your home with the colours you choose. This method also saves money because you’ll be replacing accessories rather than furniture and wallpapering.
WE are currently in the process of switing from Taupe to a white and grey palette in our home. A new neutral to get us through the next 15 years. yep great paint quality and a neutral palette has ket us from painting for that long.
4) Invest in technology to simplify your life
Finally, we now live in a technologically advanced world where technology is being produced to make our lives more convenient. With the click of a mouse, we can now contact friends and family who are thousands of miles away. However, our world’s great minds have produced smart home technologies. Dvices that will make your life easier and a little bit cooler.
Consider investing in technology to make your life at home easier. You’ll soon find that your home is as low maintenance as it can be! A robotic vacuum, for example, is a great way to ensure that your floors are always clean without having to spend hours upon hours going over your flooring with the vacuum, so consider investing in technology to make your life at home easier, and you’ll soon find that your home is as low maintenance as it can be!
