As soon as spring hits us with all its force, we tend to scramble to the shop to pick up some flowers, clean the house quickly, and get everything ready for the grand arrival. The only problem is, of course, that spring has already arrived – and we’re rather late to the party.
This year, you can always try to be a bit ahead of time and have everything ready before the sunny months. It might even give you the energy you need to push through the final grey months of winter and, by the end of your project, the birds will be chirping cheerfully outside.
Here is a handful of tips in terms of getting your home ready for spring. It does involve a bit of cleaning, though, but you’ll be happy you had it over with as soon as possible this year.
First: Get your windows clean
While it’s still grey and dreary outside, it’s a good idea to get that window cleaning over with. Sunny days will, in fact, make it a lot more likely that you’re stuck with nasty-looking stripes on your windows as the warmth ends up drying the cleaner too fast.
Cloudy weather is, in other words, the best weather for window cleaning days so get your bucket ready and have a look at this article to read a step-by-step guide.
When the sun is out for good, you can simply sit back and bask in the brilliant shine. You’ll have the most sparkling home on the entire block, for sure and definitely before everyone else.
Next: Invite some nature in
Spring is all about blooming flowers and small buds springing back to life. You should give your home the pleasure of enjoying some nature too, by the way, and might even be able to boost your own mood and energy levels while you’re at it.
Start by investing in some plants that are low-maintenance such as snake plants. They won’t mind it if you place them in a low-light area either, though, and you can watch them grow without having to spend too much time caring for them.
Another point to this is, of course, to use art in order to enjoy nature. Have a look at Gareth Parry paintings, for example, and give your rooms a facelift as well this spring. It will definitely make it a bit easier to hold on until the sunny months are back for good.
Clean up your space
Getting your home ready for spring isn’t really complete without a proper cleaning-up project. This can be really rejuvenating, though, and it’s certainly worth it as you’ll be feeling a lot lighter by the end of it.
Work your way through your kitchen cupboards, your bookshelves, your wardrobe, and perhaps even your garage – the less stuff you have dragging you down, the better you’ll feel.
