In order to avoid extensive cleaning protect the surfaces like floors and furniture with doormats, runner rugs, soft covers and such. Soft easy washable covers can save furniture from stains and can be easily returned to their original state. Runner and area rugs will save floors from scratching and dulling.

Special flooring or wall coverings are usually used in high-traffic areas for easy cleaning and durability. If this is still an option consider what areas will be high traffic and what materials can be used to protect those areas.


Prevent mess and clutter by organizing the space. Each thing has to have its own place or area where it can be stored without cluttering up the room.
