Now winter’s over, it’s time to clean out the cobwebs in your home and start to celebrate spring time. Here are some tips on how to turn your house into your home this spring time…

Do A Deep Clean

First of all, it’s time to deep clean your home. It’s easy to let things drift over the winter when you end up socialising less and staying on your couch watching Netflix more, but now the spring’s here it’s time to open your curtains, let the sunlight in and feel slightly alarmed at how much dust seems to be absolutely everywhere in your home. If you have some spare cash lying around, you could hire a cleaner to do the worst of it – but if not, dedicate a weekend to making your home shiny and fresh again,

 

Declutter Your Home

It’s time to get rid of some of your old stuff – out with the old and in with the new, right? Look at your winter wardrobe and donate all the sweaters that you never got around to wearing, and make sure that your spring and summer clothes are easy to reach for when the good weather rolls around. Make sure that you start donating one thing every time you buy something new.

 

Pick Some New Furniture

If you haven’t invested in anything new in your home for a while, use this as an excuse to do so. If your bed gives you a back ache, go out and look for a mattress that will support your spine perfectly, or get a memory foam mattress topper. If your couch is old and stained (we’ve all had one of those second-hand ones kindly passed down from family members!) then look at getting a new good quality one like the ones at Duresta sofas and chairs. Remember that spending a little more money on good quality products is a good call – they’ll last and look better for far longer.

 

Invest In Some Greenery

There’s absolutely nothing better than greenery to make your home feel more fresh and springlike. Cacti are very much in at the moment, and they’re great partly because they really don’t require too much looking after. Cut flowers always look incredible, especially this time of year, and add some colour to each room that they’re placed in. Finally, why not make your own little herb garden on your kitchen windowsill? It’ll look pretty, smell even better, and you’ll feel incredible when you get to use the herbs in your cooking.

Add Some Art

If you don’t have any art in your home, what are you waiting for? It’s time to pick out some pieces that make you smile every time you look at them, whether that’s buying and framing some prints by your favourite artists or picking up some art from your local antiques and thrift stores for an absolute steal. Your pieces of art should be the focal points in each room they’re in – don’t let them get overshadowed by each other by crowding too much in.
