This is the main concern of most families when considering an at home session, but it shouldn't be. Your home is perfect the way it is. Character is what makes a home special. Don't even bother to clean anything. If something is distracting, I can easily change my angle, or quickly move items. That's what makes it a lifestyle session. You and your home are not models and performers. It's about documenting your life so that you can look back on it when your children grow up. The only thing I request is that basic clutter be removed so that I can move around freely; so just toss things in a closet or bathroom. Make your bed, because I often use this as a backdrop and throw all your side table items under the bed. Ta da! You're ready to be filmed.
