There’s really nothing like it: warm spring breezes, days full of glorious sunlight. It’s no wonder that spring is truly a sign of renewal for both you and your home. So if you’re looking for ways to refresh your home this spring, these tips will help you spring forward.
Do A Deep Cleaning
Cleaning your space is a great way to wake up your home up after its long winter nap. But we’re not just talking about dusting and vacuuming. No, we mean that deep cleaning that comes with spring, like power washing your windows, dusting all the baseboards in your home, and replacing all the filters and outdated cartridges. It might take some time, but it will put you on the path towards a spring awakening.
Open the Windows
Winter can stink…literally. All those months of closed windows (and cooking smells) means that there are probably a lot of trapped odors in your home that you might not even be aware of. So as part of refreshing your home, be sure to open all the windows and let in some fresh air. After all, there’s nothing quite like the scent of spring to reinvigorate you.
Add Some Natural Elements
There’s a reason why home improvement stores and nurseries are so busy come spring. People begin purchasing plants and flowers to make their homes look lovely. If you want to get into the spring spirit, buy some plants that will not only make your home look beautiful, but also help clean the air and give your place a relaxed feeling.
Ditch the Clutter
Spring is synonymous with cleaning. (After all, they don’t call it spring cleaning for nothing.) As part of your home’s new look, you should strive to get rid of all the clutter and miscellaneous items that are taking up precious real estate in your home. It will make your home feel brighter and lighter with less stuff in it.
Clean Your Carpets
Carpets can collect a lot of dirt and debris over time. Whether you choose to do it yourself or hire a professional carpet cleaning company, you should definitely make it a priority to care for your carpets. They could contain harmful allergens that you and your family are breathing in on a daily basis. Not only will your carpets be cleaner, but the air quality in your home will be better, too.
Add Some Color
If you were contemplating adding some color to your home, spring is the perfect time. You can add pops of color in your space with pillows and throws, paint an entire room, or even an accent wall if you’re unsure how bold you want to go. It’s truly amazing what a little bit of color can do to your home…and your life.
Spring is truly a time of renewal and awakening, for both you and your space. So seize the season and welcome in the warmer weather by refreshing up your home with these simple yet impactful ideas.
