1.Cull and declutter
Physical clutter can have an effect on your mental clutter – and what better time than spring to simplify your life at home in order to free up your mind in the process. Choose the step-by-step approach - Start with one drawer, one storage unit or one room at a time. And work your way through your home step-by-step. Only start working in a new room once you have finished the one you are working in.
2. Clean like you mean it
This is the time to give your home a deep clean. Just like the decluttering process, this is best done by attending to one room at a time. Do a quick research on how to properly clean each room and prepare to get your hands dirty. The reward will be worth it, just imagine how lovely it’s going to be to have every nook, cranny, cupboard, line of grout and skirting board clean.
3. Get smart with storage
Once you have thoroughly cleaned your home and have said your goodbyes to all the things you no longer need, now is the time to think smart about storage. There are plenty of space-savvy storage solutions that are possible without creating an eyesore in the process. Use the wall for stylish shelves and chunky hooks, choose furniture that serve multiple purposes, and prepare to use every nook and cranny by always thinking under and over.
4. Re-fresh and Paint
Consider repainting any areas of the home that need it, repair any damaged or chipped walls and repaint the entire area to restore the condition of the property. The trick is to keep walls neutral and add artwork to liven up a space. Neutral tones can make an area appear bigger rather than using colour.
