Spring Refresh Tips
Clear out your winter essentials
It’s time to pack up those heavy winter blankets. Clear out your winter decorations. Wash or dry clean your winter items and pack them away till next winter.
Winter leads to hibernating. We like to hibernate with all of our stuff. Clear through those piles of old mail. Go through your closet and donate the items that are no longer used. Now is the perfect time to get rid of those items that no longer have lids, or the one sock without a partner. Recycle mismatched containers and give away those dishes residing in the back of your cabinet. Bringing more space will breathe fresh air into your home and allow you to relax.
Clear Out Your Pantry
Dry goods and packaged items last a long time. Think about donating to your local food bank or shelter. Now is also a good time to plan for fresher, whole foods. Clean out your fridge and throw away any expired or old items.
Refresh Your Décor
Pack up your heavy, dark items. Fresh, bright colors renew any space. New accent décor can bring a fresh new look to an outdated space. Rooms can quickly brighten with small upgrades:
- Fresh greenery
- Bright pillows
- Rearrange furniture
- Fresh paint or wall coverings
- New area rugs with fun patterns
Looking for bigger upgrades? Spring is the perfect time to renovate your home. Winter can cause unforeseen delays due to weather and cold. As winter wraps up, Spring brings warmer weather and less delays. Also, the warmer weather provides a better environment for building.
