10 Ways to Refresh Your Home for Spring
Change Out Your Linens
As the weather starts to heat up, now is the perfect time to swap those heavy linens for something a little lighter. Gather up all of your heavy throw blankets, warm winter sheets, and any other heavy linens and give them a deep wash. This will make sure they are clean and ready to be stored until next winter. Bring out your lighter weight blankets and throws to add to your room for the spring season. You can store your throws after spring is over, but sometimes it can still get chilly at night.
Do a Little Spring Cleaning
Take this time to give your home a good deep clean! While you may do a great job keeping your home clean day-to-day, there are a lot of areas that may get neglected during the rest of the year.
Here are some spring cleaning spots you don’t want to miss:
- Windows and screens
- Vents and fans
- Light fixtures
- Under Furniture
- Garbage cans
- Rugs and mats
Clean Out Your Gutters
After a rainy season, check on your gutters to make sure that they are clear of debris and ready to go. As trees start to regain their leaves once more, now is a great time to make sure that your gutters get a clean slate too!
Prepare Your Garden for the Warmer Months
As winter weather becomes a thing of the past, now is a great time to start preparing your garden for peak season!
Here are some things you can do to start preparing your garden for summer:
- Prune rose bushes and other plants
- Fertilize your lawn and other shrubberies
- Add rich compost to your garden bed
- Get rid of weeds from your garden
- Check that your gardening tools are in good condition
Check Your Roof for Possible Repairs
If you live in an area that receives a lot of snow or hazardous weather during the cold months, now is a great time to check your room for potential repairs. Snow can put a lot of weight on your roof and cause leaks and other damage. In addition to roof repairs, consider giving your roof a facelift after the rainy season.
Give Life to Your Potted Plants
Do you have any potted plants in your yard that are damaged or cracked? Take this time to repot your plants or buy new plants for your garden! You can even make your own DIY planters for smaller plants and succulents to add some greenery to your home.
Embrace the Outdoors
As the weather starts to warm up, it’s time to head outdoors! Bring out your outdoor furniture and entertaining supplies and give them a good wash and a wipe down. After spending all winter in storage, these items are probably pretty dusty. Take this time also to clean your grill and get your grilling supplies organized.
Change Your Air Filter
High-end air filters can last up to six months, but it’s recommended that you change them every 30 days. If you can’t remember the last time you changed your air filter, it’s probably time to do it! You can even set up your air filters on auto-ship, so you don’t have to think about replacing your filter!
Swap Out Your Throw Pillows
Add some pops of color to your home by swapping out your throw pillows! This is a great way to add a little more life into your home without having to transform your home decor completely. Make sure to store your winter throw pillows properly, so they don’t get dusty or exposed to the elements during the coming months.
Declutter Your House
Spring is the perfect time to start organizing and decluttering your home! Take this time to go through your home and get rid of anything you’re no longer using or didn’t use during the winter season. This is a great time to get rid of old clothes before you pack them away for the next season, and old holiday decorations you didn’t use. I have a great post about decluttering uncommon areas of your home that you can check out here.
