Apartment organizing tips.

Simple Steps to Keeping Your Apartment Clean and Tidy

Our Louisville apartments, The Paddock at Eastpoint, are known for their spacious and modern floor plans – boasting 900 square feet on our single bedrooms and a whopping 1,600 square feet on average on our three bedrooms. With such space comes the liberty to furnish, stock, and decorate your apartment the way you desire. However, maintaining a well-organized and mess-free apartment might seem challenging, but fret not—we bring you five exciting and easy tips to keep your home neat and tidy.

1.) Utilize multi-purpose furniture for storage

While everyone is in need of extra storage, having bulky plastic bins can be an eyesore. But the good news is, we have more fashionable options that serve the purpose. Try out ottomans with concealed storage spaces. They can hold anything from blankets to video games. Other furniture with built-in storage compartments include beds with under drawers, coffee tables with lift lids, cabinets with mirrored doors, shelves with baskets, and storage benches that not only provide additional storage but also make your apartment look more elegant and neat.

2.) Assign Specific Roles to Each Space

An essential part of maintaining an organized home is ensuring every space fulfills its intended purpose. Ensure your coffee table is spacious enough for a coffee cup, a book, and a remote control. Create a space on your nightstand for a lamp, a book, and a charger, and keep your cutlery neatly arranged in kitchen drawers, not on dining tabletops. The objective is to establish a functional, yet comfortable environment without overcomplication. If you succeed in doing so, you’re on track!

3.) Maintain Regular Cleaning Habits

Is clutter overwhelming you? Take action! Dedicate a day or a weekend for a thorough cleaning of your apartment. Once done, make a schedule for daily chores to maintain the cleanliness. Follow these tips:

  • Choose a specific cleaning time every day—before bed, after waking up, or during lunch hours.
  • Divide your cleaning chores into manageable bits to avoid overwhelming tasks.
  • Use a timer to keep track of each task and prevent getting distracted.
  • Give yourself a small treat for finishing cleaning chores for motivation.

With the right routine and attitude, maintaining a clean apartment isn’t daunting!

4.) Adhere to the ‘Use it, Lose it, or Love it’ Rule

We all have a nostalgic attachment to certain items that we no longer have any practical use for. Nostalgia, however dangerous when decluttering, has a strong hold on us. If you’re having difficulties parting ways with certain items, ask yourself:

  • Is this item being used regularly?
  • Do I have an emotional attachment to this item, and can I sensibly keep it?
  • Does the past value of the item justify keeping it now?

If you answer no to all these questions, it’s time to let go. Donate it to a thrift store, sell it, or gift it to someone who values it.

5.) Don’t hesitate to seek professional advice!

Never shy away from hiring professional organizers if your apartment seems overwhelmingly messy. They are experts in organizing spaces efficiently, can arrange your apartment, and also give you tips to maintain order. They bring a fresh perspective to your space and can help you plan and organize your apartment to make it look its best.
