Last summer we moved from a smallish 1,500 sq ft house to a 3,000 sq ft house. On one hand its harder to keep it clean because there is so much floor space but on the other hand its easier to keep it clean because its not as cluttered and everything has its place.
So how big is your house and do you find it easy or hard to keep it clean? Do you have a cleaning schedule?
mine is 1300sq ft. The set up is open so it doesn't feel small at all. I'd like to have bigger bedrooms but the kids will be moving our in a few years so no biggie. I bought this place for the acre of property and the huge shop out back.

I have no idea the square footage but its a 3 bedroom 2 bath. I'd say its medium in size. Not terribly small and not real big
2700 sq ft. It can get difficult sometimes to keep clean with 2 toddlers and 3 dogs who are just as bad about dragging stuff out, but I can be somewhat crazy about what I consider to be clean. I am a stickler for clean floors so I deep clean them at least twice a week. I have hardwood and tile so it is no easy task. I have a schedule, but I hardly stick to it.
4,000 sf. i feel the same way you do...it's easier to keep "picked up", but the cleaning takes a while.. there's no carpet (except in the playroom and basement), so mopping takes FOREVER. i have a daily schedule, so i can keep the house really clean in 30-45 minutes a day. the past few weeks have been hectic, however, and i've fallen off the schedule a bit. if i try to clean the whole house at one time, it takes about 3 1/2 hours. the hardest part for me is laundry -- the laundry room is in the basement & my bedroom is on the 3rd floor. i wait 'til my hamper is absolutely overflowing before i haul it down 4 flights of stairs.
