Spring is finally here. As we wave goodbye to the cold days that winter brought us it is time to look forward to the warm days ahead. We all made resolutions this year to improve ourselves and our homes.
As you begin to settle into your new lifestyle, it’s a good idea to start making a list of goals you’d like to achieve around the house to enjoy a blooming spring inside and outside the home.
From cleaning up clutter to maintaining things organized here are five chores to make part of spring cleaning.
Clean up indoor paint
Unless your walls need a fresh coat of paint, go through them with a sponge and freshen up the paint on your doors and cabinets. Take a deeper look and spot the smudges and dust that builds up in these areas. An easy run through will freshen the paint in the house and reduce the need for a new paint job.
Add some Color
It’s Spring. And with the new season comes a new set of colors. Although this year has brought us dark and bold tones, don’t be afraid to add those bright yellows and greens into the mix. Spring days bring a bright sun that brightens up your day, so make your home have the same effect.
Clean under the heavy stuff
It took time and lot of energy to put the fridge where it currently stands, the oven in its place, and the dresser in its corner. It’s understandable not to want to move them again. Though, there is dust and trash that can slip into these areas. This is not an every day clean, but it is a chore that should be done every few months to prevent bad build up over time.
Mattress and Bedding
Refresh mattress by vacuuming and laying it on its side to fully air itself out. Replace the current sheets you have to give the bed a fresh new feel. It might be a good time to start packing up the winter weather bedding and start replacing it with springtime vibes.
There are a few windows that get all the attention while the rest go unnoticed. The dust and grime that gets into the surface of these windows will make them look old and cloudy. Take a look at the windows around the house and grab some window-cleaner to take the cloudiness right off.
