Now that spring is upon us, it’s time to shake off the winter blues and start fresh with a clean home. Organizing closets and cleaning dirt and grime can breathe new life into your house, while some simple changes in decor can change the mood of the entire space.
1. Cushions, Throws, and Covers
There’s no simpler way to create a new look in your home than to add some fresh prints and accent items. There’s no need to replace existing furniture, simply add a pop of color with a fun upholstery cover. Bold prints on throw pillows or accent rugs can also bring an interesting edge to the room.
2. Organize Your Closet
Purging your wardrobe is a great way to create space and usher in the new season. Getting rid of clothes can be tough, but there are some factors to help you decide what goes and what stays:
If it has any ink stains, dye stains, rips, tears, or a weird smell
It hasn’t fit in over a year
If an item never really fit in the first place, you need to let it go.
Clothes often have an emotional pull, but hanging on to a pair of jeans in the hopes you’ll lose those extra pounds only takes up space and picks at your body image.
3. Reorganize Bookshelves
If you keep your library on display, keep your books looking their best by removing any ripped or damaged book sleeves. Instead of lining them all in a row, line some horizontally, vertically, and in a rhythmic pattern. This will create a more aesthetic look for the eye by breaking up the monotony of rows.
