Home Beautification

Part of making a home beautiful is actually the maintenance. It’s not always as fun as decorating a room, but it is necessary. Here’s a good tip that I need to remember more often:

Sweep and/or dust-mop the main rooms (with heaviest traffic – for us, this is the living room, dining room, and kitchen) daily.

It may be that your house naturally stays cleaner than ours, and will not need dust-mopping as frequently… No, I’m serious. Our house is fronted by a dusty dirt (specifically, chert) road, our driveway is the same chert, and my brothers and father are always doing very dirty things around the farm. So, dust-mopping daily is really pretty necessary.

As a hint if you’re busy choosing your flooring right now, dark floors show everything. They’re beautiful when clean, but any dust, crumbs, or anything else will show on them almost immediately. I would recommend going with something a little lighter… A nice middle-ground between very light and very dark. 🙂

    I can certainly agree with your comment on dark floors. We have dark flooring in our kitchen and it needs constant sweeping and mopping to keep it looking clean. Every little spot shows.
