6 Ways To Get Your Home Ready For Spring

Spring is here!

Finally, the flowers are blooming; the evenings are getting lighter; and the weather is getting warmer. The new season marks a fresh start, it’s time to put away your winter things and embrace spring.

Here are 6 easy ways you can get ready for spring!


Spring Clean

It isn’t just called spring cleaning by coincidence; the start of this season is actually the perfect time to give your house a proper clean. Spring cleaning has several proven benefits for your overall wellbeing and happiness. It is good for your health, can boost your immune system and increase productivity. Part of spring cleaning means tackling all the parts of your house you don’t do regularly. Do a deep clean in all your rooms, making sure you get all those little nooks and crannies like skirting boards and underneath cabinets.

Remember to wash your windows too! This will help natural light to flow into your house, which will make a real change from the darker winter days.


Move Your Furniture Around

Having a good spring clean is the perfect opportunity to switch up your furniture layout. You will probably move your furniture around while you’re cleaning, so why not take it a step further? Spring is the time for fresh perspectives, so try moving your furniture in a more intentional way. For example, you could put your dining table closer to the window so you can enjoy the sunlight with your family at mealtimes.


Have A Clear-Out

A new season is a fresh start, so it’s the perfect opportunity to have a clear-out and get organised.

Whether it’s old magazines, books or clothes, decluttering provides you with a feeling of calm and relief. Decluttering doesn’t just have to apply to your old possessions either, you can get organised by clearing out your fridge, freezer and kitchen cupboards. Get rid of anything that’s out of date and donate any of the non-perishables you know you will not use.

Here are some more tips to help you get your home organised.


Get Started On Your DIY Jobs

Spring is the perfect time to make those repairs you’ve been putting off. As the weather gets better and the days get longer, you’ve got more time for those outside jobs too. Whether you want to fix a broken fence, or the gutters need cleaning, now’s the perfect time for those DIY jobs.

It doesn’t just have to be outdoor repairs either – you could brighten your interior with a fresh coat of paint or create a stylish feature wall with brightly patterned wallpaper.


Update Your Accessories

Why not try styling your accessories for the season? Spring is all about vibrant hues like yellows, oranges and greens. So, add a brightly coloured cushion and put away your winter accessories, like big thick blankets, and replace any dark bedding with lighter colours. Create a fresh vibe with brightly coloured botanicals like these pink and cream cherry blossom stems. You can also make the most of the increasing amount of sun with mirrors, which reflect light and make your home look bigger.

Finally, introduce a few fresh scents into your home to mark the new season. In spring we love dandelion and clover or verbena and eucalyptus.


Freshen Up Your Outdoor Space

As the weather gets warmer, you’re going to watch to make the most of your outside space, whether it’s a garden patio or balcony – you can easily freshen up any outdoor spaces you’ve been neglecting over winter.

Start by cleaning the furniture and cutting the grass. You could even get adventurous by creating a herb garden!
