Decorating "Clear Housework" is quite popular lately! It just so happens that I, Xiaochang, am also a lazy person. In order to be "lazy" after moving, I racked my brains while decorating and did many home projects that "may reduce amount of housework".
Today I will give you a list, there are quite a lot of them, but 20 are effective!1. Lazy Kick Shoe Rack
Raise shoe cabinet by 20 cm. When entering and exiting door, change shoes will kick in a lazy kick, and door will be clean and tidy.
In the house where I used to live, there was an ordinary shoe cabinet, everyone wanted to make it comfortable.2. Built-in Corian sink
There are no hygienic dead corners, and thanks to mirror cabinet, entire vanity top can be "empty", and Corian has no bleeding problems and is very easy to clean, just wipe clean.
Unlike faux stone countertop + sink design at home, every cleaning is a big project, not only to solve moldy glass glue at joint, but also to find a way to get rid of bleeding. on an artificial stone countertop.
Tips: To deal with these two cleaning challenges, you can try following two cleaners, which can give twice result with half effort (I didn't take photos before use, following is picture that can explain problem):

①Mildew remover gel, apply it to moldy place of glass glue, let it stand for one night, mold spots will disappear next day, and then wipe with a rag, it will be as clean as before.
②Bleeding Purifier, if you encounter artificial stone or quartz stone bleeding, you can spray bleeding area on bleeding area, cover surface with plastic wrap and leave for four hours, usually Bleeding can be cleaned up.

In my experience, not all bleeds can be removed, such as makeup bleeds on bathroom countertops, soy sauce condiment bleeds and plastic bags bleed on kitchen countertops, watercolor pens bleed on ground... Wait until they will be removed.3. Bathroom cabinet
The bathroom cabinet is wall-mounted, 30 cm from ground. In order not to leave bathroom downstairs, bottom row has been replaced with a wall-mounted one.
In old floor-to-ceiling bathroom cabinets, mop couldn't get in, and every time it was removed, people had to lie down on ground, scoop up dirty things with their hands, and then clean them up. cloth, which was very labor intensive.
Now there is nothing on ground, when cleaning, mop directly drags bottom of cabinet in bathroom, which is very convenient.4. Wall-mounted toilet
Hiding tank in wall and looking good is secondary.
More importantly, old-fashioned floor-to-ceiling toilet has been removed, and dead corner behind water tank has been removed. Cleaning is still a mop.5. Wall for cleaning products behind bathroom door
Use mop hooks and sticky hooks to hang home cleaning tools on wall.
Not only is it easy to take, but cleaning tools can be hidden behind bathroom door, which is more beautiful. It also avoids hassle of laying them on ground and having to move them every time you clean them.6. Laundry pool top without water-retaining strip
Visual simplicity comes second, and more importantly, without adding a water barrier, it can eliminate glass glue in water area, which means less moldy edge that needs to be cleaned frequently.7. MS Sealant
While I've tried my best to reduce number of glass adhesive strips, there are still many places in house that need to be sealed with glass adhesive.
For example, water-retaining strips on my kitchen countertop cannot be made "without water-retaining strips" like on laundry sink countertop due to wall and floor alignment, so two glass adhesives are still needed; one more example. it's above bathroom wall cabinets and sink countertops need to use glass glue.
After some comparisons, I finally used MS Sealant at home. Due to different structure, its mold resistance is much higher than "silicone sealant" that most people use at home. It is very suitable for use in kitchen. , toilets and other water facilities.
There are several places in my house that my husband has taped. He said that construction is much more complicated than ordinary glass glue, but, fortunately, it is complete. So far, new house has stood for 4 years. months and there doesn't seem to be any signs of mold. As expected, no mold.8. External washbasin
The main bathroom in my house consists of a direct separation of washbasin from shower and toilet area. Without water splashing, this can naturally save some housework.
On countertop, for sake of easy cleaning, we still try to adhere to idea of "emptiness", so we made an open compartment for storing toiletries on side of washbasin.
But there are also regrets, because makeup area and washbasin have same countertop, for sake of high comfort, you have to use a sink with a countertop.9. Enamel plate on kitchen wall
Compared to traditional wall tiles, it can be completely seamless, and there is no need to clean up oil stains in beautiful joints. The enamel board, which looks like a small white board, is very easy to clean, even if I have a matte enamel board at home, it can be rubbed with oil and it will be very clean.10. Double-sided door panel
Clean, simple and economical. When I chose it before, I liked texture and look of skin-sensitive film. door leaf with double trim.11. Undermount sink
Compared to above vanity sink, it does not have a piece of moldy glass glue, and small debris on countertop also gets into sink more easily, making it easier to clean countertop and sink itself.12. High spout spring mixer
The faucet can be detached from base frame, which is convenient for rinsing every corner of sink.
Because it can be rotated, when washing pots and vegetables, turning water point towards inside of sink can effectively prevent water splashing, thus reducing damage to countertops, cabinet doors and clothes caused by splashing water. .13. Sweeping and dragging multifunctional machine
This is a very handy tool that allows you to reduce amount of work around house. I used to sweep and mop floor of house every morning. Now it can be used as a water dispenser, and all this is transferred to all-in-one sweeper. Of course, premise is that my husband and I made many complementary designs while decorating.
Without these structures, if there are a lot of things piled on ground at home, I find using a sweeper to be a very different feeling.14. Hanging TV cabinet
The small half of TV stand is on ground, and bottom is tightly closed to prevent dust and toys from getting inside. Most of TV cabinet is raised by 23 cm, and sweeper can clean and mop the floor freely.15. Floor sofa
For sake of comfort and beauty, my family finally chose Yunduo sofa, so it cannot be made with high legs, so it can only be placed on ground.
It's a pity that playground is not airtight, and there is still a small gap, but, fortunately, compared to past, at least no toys fall into it, and even a sock is difficult to put in.
As for dust, it's usually not visible, but every two weeks I'll clean it up with a crevice cleaner.

Gap cleaning artifact, there is a very large plastic sheet on telescopic long rod, sheet is covered with a cleaning cloth that can be tucked into various household gaps, including but not limited to bottom of bed, bottom of sofa, bottom of refrigerator... wait, this will make cleaning crevices more efficient.16. TV cabinet with closed door
At first, designer suggested making a completely open storage cabinet without a ceiling.
When my husband and I saw it, it was impossible, there were not many things in house that could be displayed.
Finally, current version of layout has been developed. In this space, you can store children's toys in living room, household items, books ... and living room looks much tidier.17. Living room without a coffee table
On one hand, this is for children who can run away at home and have enough space.
On other hand, it also eliminates need to clean up coffee table. I remember that big coffee table at home was always dirty.
This is a small side table instead of a coffee table, which can meet basic needs of placing water glasses, and can also be moved at any time, and there is no hygienic dead corner at bottom.
This retro style cart has a very handy folding system that can be used on one side or removed completely. Thanks to properties of pulleys, it is very convenient to use. in bedroom as a nightstand.18. Hanging sliding door
Because shoji door itself is not heavy, there is no need to fiddle with "ultra-slim door with track". Directly install hanging cabinet, there is no cleaning gap at bottom and no hygienic dead corner.19. Japanese style washable wallpaper
Most people might think that using Japanese-style wallpaper is unprofitable. The whole house was papered for more than 20,000 yuan, but it's still wallpaper, not even wall covering.
But I just love texture of wallpaper, and Japanese-style wallpaper, compared to most wallpapers, is also easy to clean. My little Goozy drew on wall a few times with signature pen, and it rubbed off easily.20. High bed
Height 15 cm is reserved, this is maximum size that sweeper can enter. You don't have to dig bottom of bed, sweeper will clean it by itself and bottom of bed will always be clean.
Even though I have little Goosey in my family who loves throwing things away, thanks to this design that doesn't require housework, my family is still in good shape. Of course, above is not all "ownerless" projects of my family. There will always be omissions. We have just met and will have opportunity to share in future.
