Spring is almost here—gone are the long days under a blanket of Washington snow—and we couldn't be more joyful. Along with beautiful blooms and lush green grass, we love spring because it kicks us into high gear on tidying our homes. Spring is a time of new beginnings and that always includes prepping the home for a new season.
If you are ready for spring cleaning, you'll be excited to know that today we're covering 6 tips for preparing your home for spring (and we've got more than just cleaning reminders!).
1. Replace your air filters.
Spring air is fresh air...and that doesn't just have to be outdoors. Consider your home's indoor air quality too. If you haven't changed your air filter in a while, now's the time. Replacing the air filter will allow for easier breathing and better in-home circulation when you turn on that A/C.
2. Prep your garden.
Flowers and bushes and blooms, oh my! Prep your home for spring this season by freshening up the exterior with new plants. Whether you have a large area for a flowerbed or just a few window boxes, planting flowers can really get you in the mood for change.
3. Dust off the interior and exterior decor.
In winter, everything is cold; no one really has the time or the energy to rid their homes of clutter or dust off the decor. Now is the time to power wash that patio furniture, dust off the interior, and tidy up the garage. You're sure to feel like a new person when the job is done.
4. Clean all the windows.
When you're cleaning your home, it's easy to forget about the windows—but they are so important. To make your house feel extra spotless, just put some gloves on and grab the Windex to remove any smudges or handprints. Then, if you're really in the spring cleaning mood, open the windows and let fresh air in—you'll breathe easier!
5. Refresh your home goods.
Once the winter is over, you may find your home goods to be a bit outdated. Whether you've been staring at the same throw pillows for twenty years or you just forget to collect all the Christmas decor, it may be time for a home goods refresh. Declutter your main rooms, then consider accent pieces—like throw pillows, candles, and knick-knacks—that would make your room sparkle and shine.
6. Switch up your window treatments.
Many homeowners forget to consider how well blinds, shutters, drapes, and shades can help save energy or spruce up a room when installed. If you're looking to add a pop of color to your living room or let more light in without sacrificing privacy, a new set of window treatments might just do the trick this spring.
