We’ve all been spending more time at home recently, using our space for leisure, work and day-to-day living.

If you’re anything like us, that’s probably resulted in a house that’s a little bit chaotic. Perhaps you’ve got piles of things everywhere, or perhaps everything has been stuffed in cupboards so you can make the most of the space you have – only now, you can’t find anything.

On top of that, there's also an increased amount of cleaning to do, from washing what seems like endless dishes to trying to find the energy to dust off the television.

But don’t worry, there are books that can help. Whether you’re looking to streamline what you have, get into a cleaning routine, or become more environmentally friendly when it comes to the home, this reading list is for you.
