Simple steps in getting your home Spring ready

Spring has officially arrived! The clocks have moved forward, hopefully we can kiss goodbye to sub-zero temperatures and there are signs of life in the garden as everything starts to wake up again following months of hibernation.

So, what better time to think about getting your home Spring ready.

I’m sharing some really simple steps on how you can prepare your home for the new season:

1: Declutter
The one task most people dread, however the key here is just to get started and start small!
Something as simple as decluttering a cupboard or drawer is a great first step which Is both achievable and allows you to build on your success. These areas are quick wins for freeing up space.
If looking for further support on decluttering your home why not take a look at my Home Organising page.

2: Re-organise your wardrobe
Spring is a great time to review your wardrobe. It’s time to swap your thick chunky knits for lightweight tops and floral dresses!
Storage boxes and vacuum-packed bags are a great way to store seasonal clothes. Also use this opportunity to recycle any clothes you’ve not worn for a while, if you’ve not worn something in the last 12 months it may be time to find a new home for it, either by donating to your local charity shop, or selling on a Preloved site such as Depop, Vinted or reThread.

3: Spring fragrances and fresh flowers
With an array of scented candles, wax melts and room sprays available on the market, there’s plenty of choice when it comes to adding a Spring fragrance to your home.

4: Swap your home furnishings
Replace winter throws, blankets and winter bedding with lighter, brighter home furnishings; swapping out heavy velvets for linen or hessian covered cushions, woollen blankets to be replaced with cotton throws and chose a lighter, brighter colour palette of summery yellows, sage greens, pastel pinks and neutral bases

5: Time to redecorate
Spring is also the perfect time if you’re thinking about redecorating a room.
From a fresh new colour palette to adding a few new accessories, an introduction of a new colour can completely transform your living space.
Alternatively, just having a play around with the placement of furniture can also make your home feel new.
