Spring is often one of the most loved and longed-for seasons. It’s the season where the world begins to wake up from its hibernation, flowers, and plants burst back into color and everywhere nature is blooming. After a long, cold winter, almost everyone welcomes the warmer months, and we often find ourselves full of the joys of spring. Below are four ways to get your home ready for the new season.
Refresh Your Linens
In the depths of winter, it’s comforting for us to snuggle under thick duvets with plush, dark covers. However, now the days are becoming warmer, it’s time to retire the winter linens and the heavy duvet to the cabinet and welcome back a lighter comforter, adorned with bright colors. You should also switch your bed sheets to breathable cotton which will keep you cooler as the nights warm up.
We are all familiar with the term ‘Spring Clean,’ and there’s no better time to prepare your house for a brand-new season than by having a thorough clean of all the rooms in your home. During the dark winter months, it may be difficult to motivate ourselves to tackle the tricky cleaning jobs, such as washing your windows and cleaning your kitchen cabinets. However, performing a thorough spring clean will leave you feeling energized and ready for the upcoming months. You could also clean your interior carpets and any wooden floors which may have seen extra wear during the wet, cold winter. Why not create a schedule for each deep cleaning job and tick them off day-by-day?
Not only does ‘spring clean’ refer to your home interiors, but you should also undertake any pressing maintenance jobs. It’s possible that during the winter months you didn’t use your air conditioning. Therefore, you should ensure you have checked the unit, ready for the new season. If you do find you need air conditioner repair, you can search online and find specialized companies which will often even visit your home on the same day.
Welcome Plants Inside
What better time to bring beautiful colorful flowers inside than spring? Adding flowers to your décor will not only bring some freshness into your home and a new burst of color, but they will also help purify the air. There are a variety of flowers which you can grow inside, including the beautiful Peace Lily which is easy to care for and grows white flowers. You could also choose to grow Jasmine inside, which will bloom pink and white flowers and fill your home with an inviting and soothing fragrance.
During winter, you may have rearranged your furniture to accommodate the Christmas tree or to move closer to the warmth of your heating system. Therefore, when spring comes around, it’s time to rearrange your furniture. It’s the perfect time to open up your windows to allow as much natural light to filter inside as you can. If you have previously had a chair or sofa in front of your windows, consider moving them to a different part of the room and keeping the curtains open. You could even opt for lighter, brighter curtains to really make use of the window area.
