Is your home ready for spring? April showers bring May flowers, and that includes a slew of things to do around your home. Check out these ten tips for getting your home prepped for the warmer months.
Air It Out
Your bed sheets and pillows might’ve taken a beating over the cold winter, and you’d want to get to replace them, so make sure to take out all your heavy winter bedding and stored spring clothing and air them out in the sunshine and fresh air.
Update Your Appliances and Outdoor Equipment
You’ll likely be at least using your vacuum for spring cleaning and your lawnmower for yard work, and spring is a great time for tool and lawn care deals.
Change Your Decorations to Add a Splash of Color
It might be time to replace the popular fall and winter wreaths with the colorful springtime willow branches, catkins, ribbons, and flowers.
Have you accessorized your mantle with candles and winter squashes? Swap them out for rustic wicker or fresh flowers.
If you love infusing the air with scents from potpourri and infuser rods, try mixing it up. Instead of heavy, spicy winter scents, try citrus, white flowers, or fresh berries.
More sunshine, fresh air, and warm weather calls for getting clutter out of the way! Store your heavy winter coats away but keep the rain boots and umbrellas handy for those April showers.
Stock up on Trendy Accessories
Throw pillows and rugs are an easy way to hop into spring’s design trends. One idea could be the Living Coral (Pantone’s Color of the Year). Springtime is also the most popular time for dresses, so make sure to grab those that are in fashion!
Swap Out Your Artwork
Update paintings with spring themes and consider changing the background on your computer and phone to aspirational pictures of flowers and having fun outdoors.
Update Your Home Security
Since you’re going to be spending more time outdoors in the spring, it may be time to install a security system that sends updates on what’s happening at home.
