Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning has the potential to make your home feel like new, and can feel like a cleansing of the soul at the same time.

Clear out and organise each room, removing things you don’t need or never look at. You might discover that you need some extra storage solutions to help your space feel fresh and less cluttered. Remember, the clearer the space, the greater the transformation you will achieve for a lovely fresh start this spring-time.

Create a fresh new look in your home by updating your flooring

It might be that some of your carpets or rugs are getting tired, or you simply fancy a change, either way a fresh design on the floor can do wonders for any room. A patterned rug can completely transform the look and feel to any space and is extremely versatile – you can move it to a new space whenever you fancy a change.

If you want a more permanent change you could opt for a brightly coloured or patterned carpet or vinyl flooring to really create a new interior style statement. Think bright, fresh colours like yellows and greens. You can make a room seem larger, smaller, modern or traditional simply from the type of flooring you choose – transforming a room is a brilliant way to breathe new life into your home this spring.

Homemade Easter decorations

Painting eggs with your family is a fun way to bring some festive Easter vibes into your home. Placed in straw baskets, and accompanied by daffodils and fluffy little Easter bunnies, painted eggs are sure to set the scene for a lovely Easter weekend.

You could also make your own bunting from scraps of old material, host an exciting Easter egg hunt for your family and friends or bake some tasty treats if you want to really push the boat out this Easter.

Bring spring indoors with house plants & flowers

With the world outside springing back to life after winter, there’s no better way to embrace the new season than by bringing some greenery indoors.

Daffodils and tulips are among the first flowers of the year to blooom; they’re beautifully bright and easy to grow. Whether you grow them in your own garden or buy potted plants from a local garden centre or super market, bringing colourful plants into your home is a great way to brighten up any room and quite literally bring your decor to life.

Clean up Your Garden

Give your garden a quick spring clean before Easter arrives. Dust your lawn mower off and get your grass looking neat and tidy. Remove dead plants, trim back overgrown trees and get rid of any dead leaves that the winter chills left behind.

You can also put some plants in bright pots and position them carefully to add a pop of colour where it is needed. Giving a little attention to your garden in spring time will definitely pay off when it comes to summer as you will have already done the groundwork!
