Sprucing Up Your Home To Get Spring Ready

All opinions expressed herein are my own!

The trees are blooming, the rain is falling, and the temps are warming up. All of these indications mean that spring is well on its way to Florida (and the rest of the United States, hopefully) and that means that it is time to get your home spruced up for spring. Get ready to take down your snow dusted wreath and dust off your warm weather clothes because that is what we are chatting about today!

Don’t worry if you don’t know where to start – I’ll help you out! There are so many ways to get your home spruced up, but here are my favorite ways:

Deep Cleaning

I know deep cleaning is a ton of work, but you will feel so much better after it is done. Make sure to get the areas that you do not normally clean like baseboards, under your beds, your curtains, inside your cabinets, and maybe you could even give your carpet a good deep cleaning. In my opinion, you should be doing a very thorough deep cleaning at least twice a year, but I think spring is especially important because it falls right after all of the holidays, when more people are in your home. During the holidays, your house fills up with dirt, dust, dander, and of course, a lot of extra items. Spring is the season of new, so it is the perfect time to get your home fresh and clean.

Getting Your Home Spruced Up for Spring

Give

After you have finished your deep cleaning, you should have pulled out everything that you do not need. Make sure you did not forget about your closet! Pack up these items in boxes or bags and consider giving them away to people that actually need them. Research places in your area where you can do this. From homeless shelters to goodwill stores, there are endless places to donate your clothes, toys, and other items and you will feel good about it, too. Huffington Post wrote this article, 15 Places To Donate Gently-Worn Clothes And Unused Beauty Products to help you find a great place. They say, “In most cases, you can even turn your donations into tax savings. It’s important to be informed when you’re giving back, so be sure to check out sites like CharityWatch.org to find out how your donation will actually reach people in need.”

Bring in the Decor

This is the fun part! Replace your snow dusted wreath and eucalyptus garland with pastels and other spring colors. You could even get fun with it and start decorating for Easter! If you want to stay low-key with the spring decor, you could go with lush greens and light blue colors, as well. One great decor piece that I have seen this year is olive branches. They are so elegant, but at the same time, not over the top. You don’t need much, maybe just a few things here and there, but whatever you do, don’t forget to add a touch of gorgeous flowers because they just scream ‘spring’ to me.

Paint

Paint is a fantastic way to get your home ready. If you choose to paint an entire room, fantastic! Or, maybe you just want to touch up your paint. A few times a year, I touch up my baseboards and walls with paint that I store in my garage. This makes my home look fresh and new, which is perfect for spring.

Do a New Home Project

If you have any new home projects on your to do list, spring is the perfect time to accomplish them (remember – spring is all about creating new life!). This spring, I was thinking about adding a fun brick wall, or re-doing my fireplace surround, to incorporate brick, but when I researched pricing, it was so expensive and timely. I did a bit more research and found a company called Faux Brickwork. They are the leaders in the supply of faux brickwork to the domestic and commercial world, providing faux brickwork to luxury homes, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, offices, retailers, and more. I figured, why not check them out for my home? Apparently their materials make it easy and affordable to install yourself and the faux brickwork looks authentic. They have an installation guide online, which is great for those that DIY.

    These are all such great tips. I think I will actually start with the painting and go from there. We need a serious paint job!

    It was only somewhat recently that moved into a house (and out of apartments), and saw how much there really is to do. (SO MUCH TO DO!) But taking care of things properly can be rewarding and sometimes fun, and I feel like your post here reflects that. 🙂 I’ve recently started to tackle the real “deep cleaning,” and I did the washing machine yesterday! Yes, it was disgusting as heck. But it felt SO NICE when I was all done, and it was sparkling clean! It really motivated me to do even more deep cleaning around the house. I’ll be taking breaks in between projects, but this is so far this is turning out pretty well. Thanks for this post!

    I am not one of those people that will clean it all and say spring cleaning is done. You have a lot of good information here. My problem is I get side tracked! I start on a drawer and it has stuff that goes some placce else. Then I will move to else and repeat the side tracking. So I just do a little here and there
