Keeping Your House Tidy With Children

Have Children? Keep Your Home Tidy With These Tips

Posted on 11 Oct 2017 by

If you have children, we don’t need to tell you how quickly the house can get cluttered. Here are some tips for keeping your home tidy when you have little ones running around.

    1. Storage is Key: Invest in Custom Cabinets

      Children have a lot of belongings. From toys to clothes and books, a large reason why homes get cluttered is because they lack adequate storage solutions. One of the best ways to make the most out of the storage opportunities in your home is to invest in custom cabinets, especially for the rooms where children tend to spend a lot of time and leave items behind. Custom made kitchen cabinets, wall units (for the living room/family room), and wardrobe organizers are all great options when it comes to custom-built storage for homes with children.

      The great thing about custom cabinets is that, not only do they add value to your home, but they also make the most out of any space since the cabinet is specifically designed for that particular place. Ultimately, when everything has a place, homes tend to get much less cluttered. Again, the key is to ensure that everything has a home.

    2. Have Systems in PlaceHaving certain systems in place can also cut down on clutter. An example here would be to ensure that everything is put away before starting anything new. Another system might be to set aside a specific time in the day where you can spend 5 to 10 minutes picking up anything that is not in its place. This system ensures that clutter doesn’t build up over the course of the week.
    3. Involve Your Children

      If your children are a little older, involve them in the tidying process. For example, have them put their toys away when they are finished playing with them, or have them sweep or make their bed. This is a great way to instill good habits in them as young children while also giving them the opportunity to work on their motor skills and independence. The key here is to be specific. For example, telling your children to clean up their room can be overwhelming, but breaking this down into specific instructions makes it more manageable and easy to understand.
