It’s getting to be that time of year where we hear about “spring cleaning” and while it may seem like a chore, it can be an incredibly rewarding one. Instead of putting it off this year, here are reasons why your home deserves a good spring clean this year.
Your home is crying out for it
It doesn’t matter how tidy you try to keep your home, a spring clean will still improve the look and feel of your home. Even the cleanest of homes could go for a good spring clean as it is a time to go beyond the surface of what you see and get a deeper clean than what you might do through weekly routine.
Time for a change
A spring clean is the perfect time to change things up in your home for a fresh look in time for the warmer, sunnier months. After a deep clean and declutter, consider switching the furniture around to make your space feel new and inviting, taking advantage of being closer to windows to enjoy the pretty views that come with springtime. We have a few suggestions of ways to rearrange furniture that help you make the most of your space. If new furniture is something you want to look into, then our sofa collection is the ideal choice for injecting a new, clean and modern style into your home this spring.
You will love coming home
After a long day, the last you want to do is walk into a disorderly home. When the area around you is messy, it can be stressful, and that’s the last thing you want. You deserve to walk into a home you can be all too glad to relax in and be proud of. You’ll never feel as happy to be home as you do after a spring clean.
Get the kids involved
Spring cleaning isn’t a chore you need to take on alone. Everyone should be ready to help, so assign tasks to every ember of the family, including the kids. Young kids might enjoy cleaning the windows, sweeping the sills with a dustpan or beating a carpet and cushions outside to rid of dust. Teenagers can be asked to vacuum, mop, sweep or dust – something they can do whilst wearing headphones and tuning out the world, making the chores not so problematic for them to get into. Make it a fun time for all of the smallest members of your family by playing music, having special well-earned snacks and even making a game out of it.
Find old gems
Sometimes it takes a deep clean to help us rediscover old things that have been buried away with time. There’s the chance you will come across old heirlooms that have been stashed away but with decluttering you now have a space for. There’s also the added bonus of finding something you may have lost in the last year like a set of keys or your child’s favourite toy that went missing.
A spring clean benefits everyone in the home, and although it may be needed again the following year, the effects are long lasting and will make you feel proud about the space you live in.
