5 Ways to Prepare Your Home for Spring

These simple ways to prepare your home for Spring will help the transition from the cold and dreariness of winter into the new beginnings of Spring:

1. Add Some Spring Flowers

Nothing says spring like flowers! Adding flowers to various rooms of your house will instantly give the space an uplifting and fresh new look. If your home is casual and rustic, we recommend bunches of mismatched, wildflowers to complement the laidback, welcoming vibe of your home. If your home is more modern and stylish, find flower boutiques that compliment your colour scheme and serves the purpose of being a stunning reminder of spring and a statement piece. If you have allergies- don’t worry, fake flowers can look just as good.

2. Clean Out Your Gutters

After Autumn and Winter, it is common for gutters to become clogged with fallen leaves and sticks, something you don’t want to have to deal with when the Spring rains come. Grab a ladder and spend a day checking your gutters and removing any debris you can find; this will prevent any flooding or rotting gutters that is inevitable if debris is left.

3. Have a Proper Spring Clean

Whilst it may be super cliché, Spring cleans are popular for a reason. Nothing is better than starting the new season off with a clean and organized home. Start with the areas that guests will see; the living room, entrance hall, dining room, bathrooms and kitchen. Once these rooms have been removed of winter build-up and clutter, move on to the bedrooms, declutter your cupboards and remove all unnecessary items you have accumulated since your last clean. Doing this will leave you refreshed and ready to enjoy the warmer weather, without worrying about the state of your house.

4. Prepare Your Garden

The best thing about Spring is undoubtedly the beauty you can find outside. If you have a garden and enjoy spending warm Summer afternoons outside, begin prepping your garden now. Dedicate some time to cut the grass, rake up the fallen leaves and put the sprinkler out for an hour or two. If you enjoy gardening, you may want to prepare your flower beds by preparing the soil and planting some seeds (or nursery flowers) to guarantee a flower-filled Summer!

5. Check Your Fans

Now is the perfect time to do a quick check on your ceiling fans to ensure that they are in good-working condition for the warmer months. You may not have used them for a few months; therefore, you want to ensure that they are in tip-top working condition for when you need them; the last thing you want is to be stranded without a fan on a scorching day. You can find a guideline on how to know if your fan needs replacing here.
