There's nothing more satisfying and exciting as starting a new life in a new home. This marks a new chapter to a person's life.

However, there's no denying just how much of a hard work it is. From packing to moving to storing, everything can be oh so tiring! Not to mention, making sure your new home is clean enough for you to be able to stay in.

There's no escaping from this task so if you do not know where to start, here are the 5 most important move-in check list you should do.

  1. Clean your refrigerator - This is where you will store all fresh food and drinks so this should be prioritized. Remove all shelves and individually wash each. Having a hard time with grease or anything sticky? Use hot water to get rid of these, then scrub hard!
  2. Walls and ceiling - Before you clean each room, make sure that you clean ceilings to walls. Starting from the top. This may seem like a hard task but it's easy if you've got an adjustable handle mop and ladder.
  3. Kitchen - If you were in a rush to move, chances are you didn't clean any of your kitchen equipment and just moved it to the next house. This is the perfect time to deep clean your oven, microwave and other appliance that you use frequently. Kitchen counters should be wiped down and the most important one - pour boiling water all over the kitchen sink to disinfect and kill germs. Last step is a full wipe down of all kitchen cabinets before you start placing items in.
  4. Bathroom - This should not be too hard if the previous owner/tenant did not leave the room filthy. Bathrooms are usually smaller spaces than any part of the house and with unlimited water supply in, then all you need is an all purpose cleaner and your handy brush then start scrubbing. Pay close attention to toilet bowls and make sure to effectively disinfect toilet seats before using.
  5. Floor - This should be given some attention especially if you have little kids that would run or roll around the floor. After vacuuming/sweeping, make sure to use a floor cleaner fit for the type of floor you have. (Wood floor, tiled floor, vinyled floor, etc)

There's no denying that Metro Manila is getting denser. Buildings are getting built left and right. Due to this, houses are being replaced by condominiums as main choice for living.

There are many advantages in living in condos such as amenities, security, etc. However, the major downside is not enough space.

There are ways to make a dorm/condo/small apartment in the city look bigger. Here are the top 7 tips Manila Maid has for city dwellers like you, living in Makati, BGC, Taguig, Ortigas, Mandaluyong, Eastwood, etc who are getting sick of the cramped look of your home.

  1. Do not get big and bulky furniture. Opt for a smaller size couch that are raised on legs or have exposed legs. This will create a sense of space. Also make sure you pull your furniture away from the walls. It will give the illusion of space.
  2. Steer away from dark paint or dark wallpaper. Your home color palette, from ceiling, wall and furnitute should be in the light or neutral tones. Think whites, beiges, greys.
  3. Buy items with multi-functions. Such as coffee table that has storage space or an ottoman that can be used as a side table.
  4. Want decorations in your room? Great! Make sure you don't crowd it with tiny items. A few bigger pieces like a statement lamp or a nice painting should do the trick.
  5. Place mirrors with nice modern frame in areas of the room. Mirrors are great in creating the illusion of space.
  6. Leave your windows uncovered. Take advantage of natural light as much as possible.
  7. DECLUTTER! Get the clutter out of the way and keep your home clean and tidy.

The main idea is to get your tiny space free of unimportant things. Hide unecessary stuff in storage or better yet, donate anything you no longer need.

Manila Maid can help you de-clutter and make your tiny space look so much bigger! We do apartment or condo cleaning in areas such as __Makati, Taguig, BGC, Eastwood, Mandaluyong __and more.

Organize your closet just in time for the summer.

Here are some really helpful tips on how to beautify your closet. One goal you need to keep in mind is this: IF YOU CAN SEE IT, YOU CAN FIND IT.

  1. Before folding or hanging clothes up, take everything out and go over your clothings, bags, accessories and shoes. Are there any clothes that don't fit you anymore? Or clothes that you've not used for more than a year? How about outdated accessories? Shoes that are just not cool anymore? Separate all of these and donate.It no longer has any room inside your closet.

  2. After you're done getting rid of clothes and shoes that you will no longer wear, organize your clothes a certain way so it won't be difficult to fin what you are looking for. How? Simple. You can do color coding, or separate casual wear, work wear formal wear & active wear. This not only saves you time in the mornings to get ready, but it also makes your closet better to look at.

  3. Make use of hooks. Look at the space inside your closet that isn't covered by your clothes. Use these space for hooks to reclaim wasted space. Best for bags, belts, accessories, scarves, etc.

  4. Have more space for rods? It's likely that you would. A normal closet would have one rod on top however, a second rod can be added in the middle. This could be home to your pants and skirts.

  5. Get yourself some clear boxes. It might be considered as an eyesore but these boxes are awesome because it can be where you can put small items that can easily be lost in your closet. This way, you can see it right away and you won't be tempted to mess up because messing up means ugly closet.
