Spring often makes us crave bright, fresh spaces. After weeks of winter weather, dull days and low temperatures, we want nothing more than a bright and colourful home as ‘happy’ as the flowers bursting into blossom outside!
Spring is a great time to deep clean our homes and reduce the clutter, but it's also about make it fresh and new! Here are our top tips on how you can get your home ready for the season ahead...
CLEAN THE CORNERS
Spring cleaning is an opportunity to address those areas you overlook daily. From dusting cracks and corners for cobwebs, to blinds, tackling those forgotten areas will help you stride on into spring with a clear home – and an even clearer mind.
Also, it's a good idea to include window frames in your spring-cleaning routine. Over the winter months, condensation can build-up on windows due to a combination of central heating and cold weather.
DECLUTTER YOUR WARDROBE
A simplified and decluttered wardrobe or clothes rack is a real mood-booster, so now's the ideal time to reorganise your clothes for the spring season. Sort through the garments you no longer need, be mindful of re-using, gifting, or selling unwanted items and give them a second life!
REFRESH YOUR WORKSPACE
While many of us are embracing hybrid working, we're coming up to almost two years of working from home, so there's never been a better time to refresh your personal workspace for the spring season.
Whether you're in need of a new desk (shop our round-up of stylish, space-saving desk) or an office chair, or perhaps you're on the hunt for stylish office storage solutions, upgrade your space to ensure it's comfortable, fun and functional.
GO FOR CHEERFUL SPRING COLOURS
To embrace the spring season, leave behind the dark colours and let the sunshine in with a palette of cheerful shades. From sugary pink to daffodil yellow, giving your room a fresh coat of paint instantly makes everything feel brighter and fresher — like spring mornings themselves. If decorating a whole room isn't on the agenda, introducing colour through soft furnishings, such as rugs or cushions, is another small win.
STYLE YOUR SPACE WITH FLOWERS
Magnolias! Tulips! Wisteria! Bringing the branches and buds inside your home is the perfect reminder of everything coming to life outside. If you're anything like us, the spring season is all about adorning your home with sprawling arrangements that will make you happy instantly!
CREATE AMBIENCE WITH SPRING SCENTS
Mood-boosting spring scents will help to lift you out of winter hibernation. Classic spring notes include lemon, bergamot and mandarin or other citrus, while floral scents like iris, jasmine and rose will also lift weighed-down winter spirits. The days might be brightening up (we can't wait!) but you can still create a cosy atmosphere in spring with the flickering flame of a candle, or a diffuser.
ORGANISE YOUR OUTDOOR SPACE
Finally, to make most of your outdoor space, bring the indoor out with comfortable and inviting sofa set to entertain and relax. You can create different outdoors areas for dinning, lounging and recreation and don’t forget outdoor lighting which will set the mood when the sun goes down.
