Spring Cleaning: Keeping Your Home In Shape* | Pip Milburn
We have officially survived the winter months and warmer weather is rapidly approaching. It is the time of the year when people’s moods suddenly improve and motivation amps itself up. There is no better time than right now to think about spring cleaning. Spring cleaning is the perfect time to tackle some of the housing projects you’ve been putting off and getting your house (like our bodies) in summer shape!
However, spring cleaning can be a very daunting task and it is no surprise that many people like to procrastinate and put off the inevitable. Visit websites like how to plan those long anticipated home interior upgrades to help you get started. In addition to the fantastic tips you’ll find there, here are some ways that you can organise your plan and walk away from your house feeling great about your accomplishments.
Make a priorities list
Sit down and really take a good look at your home and decide what needs to get done. Besides the obvious of cleaning the house, what repairs may you be looking to make at this time of the year? Go room by room and rank the priorities. What can be put off for a while and what are the major needs. Is the ceiling in need of a fresh coat of paint or have your rugs been through the winter grind and it may be time to look for rugs for sale.
Clutter causes a tremendous amount of stress. When things appear to be neat and organized, people feel like they have order in their life. Spring cleaning in the perfect time to go through your closet and decide what to keep and what to donate to charity. Go through your bookshelves and decide what really needs to be there and what can be removed. Look at the room as a whole and see what is just simply taking up space and remove it.
Don’t forget the walls and windows
This can be an especially big problem on the outside. Invest in a power washer or outsource it to a company of your choice. All kinds of dust and dirt build up on the outside of your house that many people forget about when they are trying to work on the inside. The same can be true for the inside walls and windows. They need some love too!

Brighten the house up
Spring is the perfect time to take some of your dull and bland rooms and really brighten them up with vibrant, mood enhancing colors. Set the tone for how you want to feel this spring and summer and make your house be visually appealing to make that happen. It will take some work, but the rewards of a clean, bright, cheerful house will lead to your best spring yet!
