Remodelling ideas for an easier to clean home





Replace your flooring with something that is easier to clean. While you may miss the feel of carpeting under your feet (although you can still put down a rug or two), you might want to consider something that won't attract as many dog hairs, and something that you will have less trouble removing nasty stains from. Polished concrete is proving increasingly popular, as it is both easy to clean and looks amazing too. Check out the some of the options here, https://www.concretecrib.com.au/polished-concrete/ . Alternatively, you might also consider laminate tiling, vinyl flooring, or something hardwood, such as oak, walnut or bamboo. There are loads of options, so work out your budget, and find something that suits your home.
