Spring has finally arrived in Minnesota! This is probably the one time of the year when the word “cleaning” actually has a positive connotation! It just feels so good to get the whole house cleaned and organized after the dreary winter months. Here are some tips for getting your home in fabulous spring form!
- Swap out those heavy quilts and blankets for lighter-weight bedding. Store your winter blankets in under-bed boxes, zippered bags, or vacuum-seal storage bags, which save space and protect against insects. Insert cedar or lavender sachets for extra freshness.
- Changing out your wall artwork can make a space feel fresh and new. Better Homes & Gardens has some great ideas for filling wall space, including a DIY gallery shelf, reflective artwork, basket art and wallpaper art.
- Add a fresh coat of paint to your home’s interior or exterior. We’ve got some great tips in our previous post about prepping your home inside and out for painting.
- Give your home’s curb appeal a facelift with new hardware, freshly potted plants or a new light fixture.
