How to Prepare your Home for Spring

How to Prepare your Home for Spring

As we enter March, it is time to start thinking about preparing your home for spring which is a great way to refresh and revitalize your living space after the long winter months. It also might help you to prepare for marketing your property. Here are some steps to help you:

Time for a deep clean: First things first, clean your home from top to bottom. Dust, wash and vacuum all surfaces, even those that you don’t always think about like blinds and underneath the sofa.

Try to declutter: Have a thorough sort through all your possessions and decide if there is anything that your no longer need in your home. If it is broken, bin but if it is in good condition, think about where you can donate it. Clear surfaces give a great feeling of space.


Begin to organise: Once you have decluttered, organise your belongings. Some items might fit neatly in their original space or perhaps in a new space that has become free following the decluttering process. Otherwise, storage boxes and drawers can provide a handy space to hide those important bits and bobs you don’t necessarily want to look at.

Fresh air: Hopefully, it will begin to warm up soon which provides the perfect time to open windows and doors to let fresh air circulate throughout your home. You might even be able to hang washing outside to dry again!

Small DIY jobs: This time of year is a great time to check if there are any repairs required both internally and externally. Make sure all those little DIY jobs are done now so that you can enjoy the summer months without worry.


The garden: As the sun begins to shine and warm the air, it's time to start thinking about your garden. It might be a quick tidy, weed and sweep of the leaves or you might need to polish the patio and plant some new shrubs but get ahead of the game so your garden is beautiful during the summer months.

Home decor: Finally, can you swap your dark, heavy blankets for light and brighter coloured? Spring is a fantastic time to change your décor to fit with the sunnier season. Maybe add some fresh flowers and new scent diffusers to your home.
