It doesn’t matter if you have a small apartment of a five bedroom house, keeping your rooms tidy and clean can be very difficult.

Now you would think that people with larger homes should naturally have more space to ‘hide things away’ but this isn’t always the case. We live to our means – which means that people with larger homes usually have more things and more things equals more clutter. So contrary to what many people may think, it’s the people with smaller homes or flats that are generally more tidy, as they need to make the most of the space. And it’s those people with larger homes which struggle to cope with finding somewhere for everything they own.

Whether you have a small apartment or a large home, keeping them clean doesn’t have to be a chore. Things you can do to help include:

• Do little and often – if you keep on top of the tidying and cleaning your home will never get too messy.
• Be tidy – If you leave a mess you’ll have to tidy it at a later date, if you tidy things straight away mess will not get out of hand.
• Get some storage space – if you’ve not got enough storage space things can quickly get out of hand. Even if you have to invest in fitted wardrobes the extra space can be a lifesaver.
• Get some help – if you have a regular cleaner things will never get too bad. Even if they only clean once a month you will be sure you’ll always have a clean home.
