Top Tips to Get Your Home Ready for Spring

After a long, excruciating winter, spring is finally upon us. The days of hibernation are over and it’s the perfect time to freshen up your home and do some spring cleaning. Here are some essential things you can do to get your home ready for spring and summer.

Let there be Light

The easiest way to bring the feeling of spring into your home is to embrace natural light.

One way to do that is to move the furniture around so that the most prominent areas in a room are soaked in sunlight. Move your sofa to the part of your living room that faces the sun and take it as close to the window as possible.

Another great option is to install a roof light. This will not only bring a lot of natural light into your home, but it will also help reduce your energy bills.

Bring Out the Vases

Nothing can make the mood more joyful than a bunch of fresh, colourful flowers. During the colder months, most people use Berries, Mistletoe and Holly to bring in some warmth into the home.

With the weather getting warmer, fresh flowers are the perfect way to welcome spring into your home. So, take out those vases, clean them and have them ready for some fresh flowers.

Declutter Your Home

Over the winter many of us tend to collect stuff we may not even need. The start of the spring season is the perfect time to sort out your stuff and cut the clutter. Remove anything you no longer use to make way for something you are using.

While you are at it, look at your wardrobe and see what you can sell, donate or discard. This is also a good time to pack your winter clothes and make way for light and airy summer clothes.

Carry Out Electrical Safety Inspection

Spring is a good time to carry out an electrical safety inspection.

Inspect the cords. Check the outlets. Call in a trusted electric services company in the North East for a professional inspection.
