Many of us suddenly have extra time at home. Why not use some of your time to do some things for your home – especially if you’re considering listing it for sale once we return to normal! Here’s our list of Top 10 Things to Do at Home for Your Home!
Edit Your Space ✂️
This is the time to go through your home and start removing items that you may not need anymore. Things can start piling up and become clutter when not properly placed in a room.
Rearrange Your Furniture 🛋️
This can create a whole new fresh look for your home and open up space you may have not even realized you had before. You can even download room layout apps before moving any furniture. Or just take out the old measuring tape to make sure your have enough room before making adjustments.
Deep Clean Your Home 🧹
If a global pandemic doesn’t inspire you to deep clean, maybe putting your home on the market will. First dust and vacuum and then go ahead and begin disinfecting. Make sure to clean your fixtures, vent covers, appliances, toilets and mirrors.
DeClutter the Décor 🖼️
If you have a lot of knickknacks, candles, artwork, and other items that cause clutter in your space, consider trimming down to just a few pieces and placing everything else out of sight or in a storage box in the garage.
Clean Your Windows 🏨
A great at home recipe for cleaning windows is to take one part hot water to one part distilled vinegar. Be sure to clean both the inside and outside of your windows.
Scrub Your Grout 🧼
You can clean your grout with vinegar as well – equal parts of warm water and vinegar. Spray and let it stand for about five minutes and then scrub with a stiff-bristled brush.
Magic Erase Your Doors, Doorjambs, Window Sills, and Baseboards 🧽
Don’t forget about these places! If you stocked up on some Magic Erase sponges, just simply dampen and wipe down.
Polish Your Countertops 🧽
If you have granite, it’s easy to polish. First clean it thoroughly and dry completely. If you have a granite polish, use as directed. Here are some at home granite polish recipes online:
Organize Your Closets 👚
First declutter and get rid of anything you no longer need. You’ll want to think about a “design” and organization for your closet. A good tip is to store your clothes by category. Hang longer items and delicate clothing. You can stack thicker items like denim and sweaters. Be sure to also make use of your vertical storage space.
Wipe Down Your Entry Door 🚪
Keeping the exterior of your home, especially the font door, can boost attractiveness and curb appeal!
