How to Cut Down Your Cleaning Time with Interior Design

When it comes to home renovation, it is important to ensure that your interior design is practical and functional as it is aesthetically pleasing. Do you know that having a well-organised interior design can help in reducing the time needed for you to clean up your home? This can be a real life-saver, especially when you have a hectic schedule and barely have time to clean up the home weekly.

Therefore, here are some tips from our interior designers that can potentially help reduce your cleaning time significantly.

1. Go for Grout-less Flooring

Homogeneous tiles have become very popular and can be commonly seen in many Singaporean homes today. One of the main reasons for this surge of popularity is that they can be installed without using grout, providing a layout that can be easily maintained. Being grout-less means that there is no room for dirt and grime to settle between the joints, which can be a pain to remove.

2. Hide Them Pipes

Not only is your piping system rather unpleasant to the sight, but it can also be a hassle to upkeep if they are exposed. Wet areas are a breeding ground for bacteria and dust over time which can require quite some time to clean, especially when the grime has been accumulating for a long time. Concealing the pipes reduces wet spots in areas such as the kitchen and bathroom, thus minimizing the time needed for cleanup.

3. Smoothen Your Walls

Smooth walls can work wonders in making your cleaning less painstaking and troublesome. Bumps and dents on walls collect dust very easily. Therefore, the rule of thumb is the smoother the wall, the easier the cleaning will be. You can also consider installing built-in furniture such as TV cabinets, shelving units, and wardrobes. Apart from saving space, these built-ins can also make cleaning more painless.

4. Add In Stainless Materials

Materials like stainless steel are great additions to a home renovation project because they are effective in preventing dust to hang on and gather. Having stainless steel décor or furnishing typically have smooth and slippery surfaces, minimizing the likelihood of collecting stubborn stains and hard-to-remove grime.

5. Reduce Clutter

One of the most common reasons why we find it hard to clean our homes is simply because we have too many things! Start by removing the belongings that are unwanted or no longer serve a purpose to you. Decluttering your home not only makes the cleaning process easier, but it also helps to free up more useable space as well!

At i-Chapter, we believe that homes should make your life easier, which is why we always take into account the practicality aspect whenever we design a home. Engage our interior designers to create a home that not only looks good, but makes you feel good living in them!
