If your plans fell through for spring cleaning, summer is here to save the day. The days are longer and the sun is shining, creating the perfect opportunity to transform your home with the KonMari method.

KonMari is a term based off of the famous Japanese cleaning consultant, Marie Kondo, who is also the best-selling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. She has recently gained popularity with her hit Netflix show, Tidying up With Marie Kondo. Just like her, Daniel Fox Construction, who provides kitchen remodeling services to Blue Bell, PA, and other nearby areas, wants local homeowners to create the home that they not only desire but deserve.

Marie Kondo has two main strategies for cleaning up:

  1. If it does not spark joy, get rid of it.
  2. Place all of your items in a visible area.

Although it sounds silly, Kondo encourages people to give thanks to objects you choose to remove. Many times, guilt is a frequent emotion people feel when purging a space. If you take the time to show gratitude, it lessens the harshness of the process. 

A key strategy to the KonMari way is to clean and organize by category, not room. These categories should include clothes, books, papers, miscellaneous items, and sentimental pieces. By sticking to one group at a time, you can efficiently clear out an entire component of your house. Instead of going room by room dealing with the same section repeatedly, you can finish the one type of item in one sweep.

Completing one category and then moving onto the next is crucial in the productiveness of your clean up. Not only is it more efficient, but it will make you feel satisfied knowing that you are accomplishing your goals. 
Not having the proper storage in your house can also contribute to unnecessary clutter. Daniel Fox Construction offers a number of renovation services that can help transform your home. Our custom cabinetry is an excellent choice if you are lacking storage, or want to update the cabinets you have. A great looking cabinet can enhance a room and hide a mess you don’t want visible.
