Spring is a time to press the restart button. It's a time to refresh and renew.
Unlike our offices, schools, and other public places, our homes are the one place that we can make our own. It only makes sense to make them as comfortable as we can.
We want to share 4 simple, yet game-changing ways that you can refresh your home this spring.
1. Do a deeper cleaning.
Instead of just vacuuming the rug, take a few extra minutes to move the furniture and clean up the dust that's accumulated over the winter months in those hard-to-see corners.
2. Get rid of old papers.
Mail, kids’ old homework, miscellaneous brochures...papers accumulate. Take 10 minutes to go through and throw out, or file old papers taking up room on counters or desks. You'd be surprised how this small task can make a significant impact on not only the look and feel of your home, but your mental clarity.
3. Give some TLC to what you already own.
Is a door squeaking? Take 5 minutes to oil it. A light bulb out? Replace it with a new energy-efficient bulb.
4. Decorate with some greens.
The beauty of springtime is all the fresh, beautiful flowers and plants that begin to sprout outside. Take a moment to fill a vase with your favorite assortment of flowers or greenery. Not only is this pleasing to the eye, but you’ll have fresh aromas circulating around your home.
