Getting Your Home Organized for Spring
The spring breezes are beginning to blow, and people who have been cooped up all winter long will start coming out and improving their homes. There are several reasons for this; some of it can be attributed to spring cleaning, and some of it is due to the fact that many people put their homes on the market for sale this time of year. No matter the reason, spring is prime time for getting everything in shape and in order. Here are some home improvements that you might consider this spring:
- Custom Storage Solutions Storage solutions like custom closets, custom pantries, home office organization and custom garages give you a place to store all of your belongings. Having a professional organizer come in and make sense out of these areas by installing shelving, drawers, cabinets and other organizational accessories can make a huge difference in the way that your home functions. It also keeps everything looking neat and clean, which helps immensely if you’re going to be putting your house on the market, or even if you’re just having everyone over for Easter dinner or to host a bridal shower.
- Inexpensive Spruce Ups There are a few things that you can do to improve the appearance of your home that don’t cost a lot of money. Painting is at the top of the list of inexpensive home touch-ups. Whether you’re painting the inside or the outside of your house, a fresh coat will make everything look cleaner and brighter. For interest, consider painting your ceilings a color other than white, or painting one accent wall in a room. Planting annuals is another way to make the house look nice without spending a lot of money. Consider spending a little bit of money on new curtains for one room, or on throw pillows for a couch. Little touches like these will help you feel good about your home.
- Clean, Clean, Clean There’s nothing that says “dirty and dingy” then, well, having a dirty and dingy home. It’s time to get a broom out to knock down those cobwebs, both inside and outside. Wash all of the window treatments; you might be surprised at how much dust they were holding! Wash your baseboards and dust the wall moldings, and dust off any ceiling fans. Getting all of the dirt and grime out of your home will go a long way in making it a comfortable haven for you and your family.
