No matter if you are in a studio or a townhome, the struggle to keep a clean and tidy apartment is something we have all found challenging at some point in our lives! These tips should help you spend a little less time cleaning and more time doing the things you love like spending time with family and friends, binging Netflix or simply relaxing in the clean and calming space you call your home.

1. Declutter and destress

Clutter in an apartment automatically makes the space look messier than it is. Take time every so often to go through your items and donate or throw away what you no longer need. A great place to start is your closet or a junk drawer. Going through items and getting rid of items you no longer need will help avoid clutter build up that will take more time to go through and can become overwhelming!

2. Invest in organization solutions

Do you find yourself putting items that do not belong on your couch or desk? Look into investing in storage bins, under the bed organizers, cabinet storage, and so much more! When it comes to organizing, the limits are endless. Next time you are cleaning up around your apartment, see what items you are constantly trying to put somewhere. This will give you a good idea of what organization solutions you need to store those miscellaneous objects in your home.

3. Make your bed every day

This one only takes a minute or two to complete, but it may not be high on the priority list when you first wake up in the morning. In fact, according to a survey reported by CNBC, three-fourths of bedmakers say they feel more successful at the end of the day. Also, making your bed can instantly give off the impression of a tidier space. If you are in a studio or loft apartment this tip is especially important because the bed will be one of the first things a guest will see when they walk through the door!

4. Multi-task

Try playing your favorite podcast, turning on a T.V. show, or even steaming a YouTube channel while simultaneously putting away your laundry. Using your down time to quickly clean your space is an efficient way to maintain a tidy apartment daily.  

5. Clean from the top down

Start at the top and work your way down while cleaning your apartment. Make sure you start with the highest point – like dusting your fan blades, cleaning the top of your cabinets, cleaning out your microwave so any excess dust or dirt will fall on the floor. The final step should be to sweep or vacuum all dust and dirt at the end of your cleaning process.  This method creates less work for you in the long run!

6. The 15-minute rule

If you find yourself tired and unmotivated to clean, set a timer on your phone for 15 minutes and clean your space by picking up and putting away what you   can in that time frame. Fifteen minutes may not seem like a long time, but you will be surprised with what you can get done in your apartment. If you find yourself wanting to clean some more, just add another 15 minutes!

We hope these six quick tips help to keep your  apartment  clean!
