Ever looked at those freakishly austere photos of minimalist, modern homes that we post and been stumped about how to keep your house clean like that? There is a simple answer: Never. Stop. Tidying. This advice comes courtesy of a recent Apartment Therapy story and the strategy is simple: cleaning your home isn't an hours-long affair on the weekends. It's a constant ritual. And it can become as easy and effortless as breathing.  To do this, think of your home the way a server would think of a restaurant dining room. As you move from one room into the next, look for things to tidy. Shoes out of place? Move them. Finished with a dish? Wash it.  The trick of course, is making sure everything has its place in your home to begin with. Begin with an ample amount of modern shelving so you can keep table surfaces free of books and magazines: Morrissey Driftwood Bookshelf Add a console table with drawers. Placed at the entryway or behind the couch, these are perfect utility spaces to stash random items like keys and remotes. Slim in design, many modern desks can serve this purpose too.

But having weekend days free of cleaning (not to mention having a clean home worthy of a mod mag photo shoot) is worth it, isn't it? Images: Est Magazine
