6 Spring Spruce-Up Ideas for Your Apartment or House!
March 20, 2022
Three words you’ve been waiting to hear: Spring has sprung! The first official day of spring was March 20th. We’ve got 6 ideas to help you get your home in spring season shape.
A spring ritual is the deep clean. It may not be the most fun task to do, but you will thank yourself later. Focus on one room at a time, jam out to your favorite playlist, and get cleaning. Don’t forget to clean those windows to let that sunshine in. Get ready to feel happier and healthier in your home!
Here is a cleaning checklist to get you started.
If cleaning really isn’t your forte, there are always options to hire a local cleaner. Heather’s Housekeeping is one of the many great cleaning companies in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
Clutter detracts from the functionality and beauty of your home. Throw things out that you no longer use or need. Gently used items can be donated to your local charity. Try replacing one new item for each two that you get rid of. If you’re not ready to let go of it quite yet, box it up, label it, and store it for later. Decluttering will not only clear up your space but will also be a mindful reset.
Bring the outdoors… inside! Live life in full bloom this spring by adding greenery to your home. Houseplants improve your environment, increase your mood, and bring a pop of color. Add some plants to your windowsill or grow some herbs for cooking. If taking care of plants isn’t for you, just stop by your local grocer or flower shop and pick up some fresh floral for your dining room or bedside table. (Pro tip: fake flowers work too!)
Add accent décor throughout your home that adds a pop of color. It can be as simple as adding a pillow to your couch or a book to your coffee table. These subtle additions can change the vibe of the whole room and even your mood. Glass and lucite décor increase brightness by letting the light shine through.
Closets, Cupboards, and Cabinets
Time to put things back where they belong! Things get misplaced all the time. Reorganize your closet with a spring mindset. Put your spring/warmer weather clothes to the front of your closet. Stack those containers, pots and pans, and dishes in an order that makes sense to you. Rethink the organization of each space to make it the most efficient and effective use of space.
Give your furniture some TLC. With a fresh coat of paint, an old piece of furniture gets a fun new look. Use furniture wax or polish to give natural wood a new life. Wipe down all picture frames and glass for a crystal-clear appearance
