Your house is likely one of your biggest investments so it’s important to treat it as such. Since our house serves as our home AND a space where I operate my business, I go extra when it comes to interior design and maintenance. Here are 5 easy ways to take care of your home:
Have a list of quality contacts
One of the first properties we bought when my husband and I got married was a condominium unit. It was handed over to us as a bare unit so it was up to us to turn it into a cozy and functional home for our family.
The first step we took was to compile a list of quality contacts for our unit renovation as well as for emergencies, such as an emergency water cleanup company, a locksmith, and so on.
When these incidents happen, there is no time to research companies and this means you can end up choosing a business that lacks quality. Instead, by doing your research and creating a contact list now, you can protect your home and business overall.
Invest in quality airconditioning or underfloor heating (depending on your location)
Since we live in a tropical country, it’s important to have quality airconditioning installed to make our stay at home comfortable. But if you live in a country that requires a heating system, it’s vital to plan ahead and invest in an underfloor heating system.
By making arrangements for this service now, you can ensure you have plenty of time to have an initial consultation with the underfloor heating contractors you choose. You can thoroughly assess the options that are available to you so that you don’t make a rash decision, and you can have the heating system installed before the harsh weather of winter arrives again later in the year.
But, why is this a good option to consider? Well, the benefits are endless…
- Reduced Your Energy Bills
- Improve Efficiency
- Get Rid Of Allergies
- Comfortable Heat
- Improved Space Utilisation
- … And much, much more!
You are guaranteed to save a considerable sum of money by investing in an underfloor heating system. In fact, you will soon make back the cash that you have invested in terms of efficiency savings, thus, the longer you leave it, the more money you are wasting.All in all, there are many benefits associated with underfloor heating systems for homes, and you ought to make the most of them sooner rather than later. Planning ahead will ensure a hassle-free process while guaranteeing maximum results.
Clear the clutter
Once we moved into our condominium unit, we committed to keeping our home clear from clutter. It was a challenge with little kids in the house, but with a system in place, it eventually became easier to manage our stuff.
We started by being intentional with the things we buy. We don’t just buy for the sake of buying. Everything we purchase has to have a purpose and a place in our home. Otherwise, we skip it!
We also have a box where we put all the stuff we pick up around the house throughout the day. At the end of the day, we take all the items inside that box and put them back in their place.
Believe me, having a clutter-free home is a game changer when it comes to creating a homey house and a space for doing your business.
Have a regular cleaning schedule
We have a regular schedule for cleaning up different areas in the house. We sweep, vacuum, and mop on a daily basis. We also never allow dishes to pile up in the sink.
Every month, we hire the help of cleaners to deep clean our house and shampoo our mattresses.
Stay on top of repairs
We never let broken furniture or scraped paint sit around for months. We set aside a budget for repairs so we can get the house repaired when we need it.
