With long working hours and a tight schedule, most people tend to leave cleaning their homes on the backburner. Unfortunately, neglecting to attend to household chores can also result in your home or apartment getting stuffy, cluttered and looking like a small bomb went off in it. Thankfully, all is not lost. Today, we have a look at some simple and effective ways in which you can revitalise a stuffy apartment, so read on to find out more!


1. Get The Hoover Out

Vacuuming isn’t the most fun of activities, but it is something that everyone should do at least once a week to prevent dust and dirt from accumulating. Thankfully, in 2020, there is a myriad of options when it comes to vacuum cleaners. From cordless stick vacuums to robotic vacuum cleaners, there is a multitude of options for busy people to choose from. We highly recommend getting yourself a vacuum cleaner that makes the job easy and devoting 30 minutes of the week to giving your apartment a good vacuum. You’ll be amazed at how much better your space looks and feels when it is rid of dust, debris and dirt.


2. Time To Declutter

Most of us fall victim to allowing things to pile up over the years. Chances are if you find that your apartment is stuffy, you probably have accumulated clutter over the years. This is why it is so important that you dedicate a day or two to getting rid of unwanted objects. You can either give these objects away to friends and family, sell them on Facebook Marketplace to make a quick buck or simply donate them to those in need. The most common clutter that tends to accumulate include old magazines, electronics, clothing and unwanted food items that all of us seem to have in our pantry.


3. Rethink Your Storage Plan

Of course, when it comes to revitalising your apartment, we don’t expect you to get rid of all your belongings or items. This is why rethinking your storage plan is important. Do you have too many belongings just strewn around the apartment, with nowhere to hide them? Thankfully, there are a vast variety of storage solutions available on the market today. Some of the most popular ones include storage beds, storage sofas and options such as wall shelves and cabinets that you can obtain at very reasonable prices. Adding these storage solutions to your apartment is one of the best ways of keeping things out of sight and creating an uncluttered and harmonious space in which you can kick back and relax in.


4. Invest In Quality Pieces

Purchasing a lot of poorly made pieces of furniture can clutter up an apartment in no time. We highly recommend going with a “less is more” approach if you’re looking to turn your apartment from stuffy into stylish. Minimalism is more popular than it has ever been before, with many people opting to invest in just a few pieces of high-quality furniture and accessories for their home. Keep decorations to a minimal and choose furniture that is both practical yet simple looking. Investing in quality pieces that last for years may come at a small price initially, but will save you thousands in the future as you won’t need to replace them every six months.


5. Stick To A Routine

Last but not least, anyone who is looking to win the apartment clutter war is going to have to stick to a cleaning and organising routine. This means setting aside a few hours a week to give your apartment a thorough refreshing. You can even create a mini routine of daily tasks that you need to do such as dusting, wiping down surfaces and ensuring that all your items are kept in their allocated spots before you head to bed.




Having a tidy home is one of the best things anyone can come home to at the end of a long and stressful day. We hope that this article has given you some insight into how anyone can go about revitalising a cluttered and stuffy apartment.
