    These cabinets are painted in Farrow and Ball Wevet. Unfortunately I do not have access to the wall colour.

Bring in the prosOf course, you could avoid housework arguments altogether by employing a professional cleaner/housekeeper. Yes, it will add to your weekly expenses, but if you can afford it, it could be money well spent. If by doing without a takeaway once a week you end up with a neat, organised home without the conflict, it could be well worth it.

Organise your utility roomIf you’re fortunate enough to have space for a separate utility room, it’s likely this room works pretty hard for you. Sports kits, muddy pets, DIY tools and wellies will all bring in mud, dust and leaves, and result in a chaotic room if not managed properly. As you begin a deep clean, consider if you have enough suitable storage to corral all the different things that pass through this room. Sturdy plastic boxes that are easy to clean can be placed inside cupboards. Strong hooks on the wall, or back of doors are great for keeping coats, dog leads and kit bags off the floor and other surfaces, while wicker baskets can be used for dirty laundry.

Create a sense of unityThis utility room is a lovely, calm space thanks to a simple colour palette of dove grey units, honey-coloured wood and warm-toned walls. By keeping the scheme simple and introducing plenty of storage, from wall cupboards to base units and large wicker laundry baskets, everything is tucked away and ordered. Light-coloured wall shelves provide storage when required, and cleaning materials are neatly stored in dedicated baskets.

Leave it spick and spanWith all the preparation involved in packing for your holiday, cleaning the house is probably the last thing you want to do. But with a little forward planning it should be easy. The key is not to leave it all until the last minute – give the house a good clean a few days beforehand. Then, just before you leave you’ll only need to do a few quick top-ups. Essential last-minute tasks include cleaning the bathroom and kitchen sinks, wiping down kitchen work surfaces and sweeping the floors. This shouldn’t take too long, and you’ll really appreciate it when you return to a shiny, clean home.
