I’m the proud owner of a spotless kitchen 🙂
Now if it would just stay that way. Unfortunately it normally last about 10 minutes, and then it looks like a bomb went off 😉
Having a smallish place, I’ve found that it doesn’t take much before the house suddenly starts to look messy. You know what I’m talking about! A glass here, a pot there, a few magazines thrown around, a bowl, a cup, a piece of clothing, some shoes and WHAM, what the heck happened to my spotless place?
The key to keeping it “kinda” under control, is to have space to put things away, preferable behind “closed doors” 😉
And no, I’m not talking about the, throw everything into a room, close the door, and hope (seriously hope), nobody ever opens it, because they will surely loose their life, by all the things falling on top of them, kinda “closed door” 😉
I’m talking about the being able to open a drawer, cabinet, closet and nicely put things away, kinda “closed door”!
I wish I had a few more of those spaces available, and that is why I’m decluttering. To give myself some free space to tuck things away, for the everyday clean look, that I love.
And to show you, that I – for at least a minute – succeeded with the clean look. I’ve attached a couple of pictures of my kitchen (which, by the way, I am really proud of – you see – my dad and I installed the kitchen ourselves, when the house was built 🙂 ).
