One such common type of checklist is based on the rooms you have. Every room has its own utility, therefore if you prepare a checklist based on the rooms, then you can pick each and every item of a room individually, and dust or clean them up. For example- If you include your bedroom in the checklist, then you can pick up many things from the bedroom such as bed sheets, curtains, closet and other furniture, mirror and etc, and dust or clean them up.
