Spring is a beautiful season and one that many people look forward to. As the weather starts to warm up, we see buds forming on the trees and daffodils popping up in our yards.
It’s a time of hope and new beginnings. But how can you bring that feeling of spring into your home? We’ll explore five simple ways to prepare your home for spring and truly enjoy this season.
1. Let the Sun Shine In
First and foremost, open up your windows! During the winter, we tend to keep our blinds and curtains closed to insulate our homes and keep them warm and cozy. But this can make our homes feel dingy and stale. So as soon as you have a warmer day, take the opportunity to wash some windows and let the fresh air and sunshine in.
Hang your blinds or curtains high and wide to let in as much natural light as possible.
2. Get Growing
Another way to bring the feeling of spring into your home is to get something growing. While it may not be time to start your outdoor garden (although it is a good idea to start thinking about vegetable garden layout ideas), you can begin to grow something inside.
A small kitchen herb plant like basil or spearmint is a great place to start. You can find these at your local grocery store or big box store like Lowe’s or Home Depot. Then, place it in a cute terracotta pot on your kitchen windowsill or somewhere that gets a bit of light.
Having something lively and fresh in your space can be incredibly uplifting. While offering beautiful scents.
If you want to take it a step further, consider starting some indoor seeds for your vegetable garden. It may seem intimidating at first, but it’s actually relatively easy.
There are plenty of videos on YouTube to help you get started. Getting the kids involved can make it even more special. Watching something grow from a tiny seed to a full-grown plant is beautiful.
3. Spring-Inspired Home Decor
Consider adding some spring-inspired decor to your home. This doesn’t have to mean buying a lot of new things! For example, you can simply switch out your throw pillows or table runner for something with a spring color or pattern.
Add some fresh flowers to a vase or display a bowl of colorful fruit. Even just a few small touches can make a significant difference in the overall feel of your home.
These small changes can make a big difference in the overall feel of your home and help you truly enjoy this beautiful season. So grab some coffee or tea, get cozy, and embrace all things spring!
4. Hang a Spring Wreath
As you bid farewell to the chilly weather, give your front door a warm welcome with a delightful spring wreath. While bunny-shaped wreaths are undeniably cute, tulip wreaths in various hues and styles are trendy this season.
So, hop over to your favorite store and pick the perfect wreath (or watch the video below and DIY one) to add a pop of color and cheer to your home!
5. the Spring Cleaning Tradition
Finally, bring the feeling of spring into your home by decluttering and cleaning. Spring cleaning is a classic tradition for a reason! Take the time to go through your home and remove anything you no longer need or want.
This can include clothes, books, and household items. Donate anything that’s still in good condition, and throw away anything that’s beyond repair.
Once you’ve decluttered, take the time to deep clean your home. This can include dusting, vacuuming, and scrubbing. A clean and clutter-free home can be incredibly refreshing and uplifting.
