5 Ways to Get Your House Spring-Ready: How to prepare your house for spring

Spring is finally here, and it's time to shake off the winter blues and get ready for some sunshine! With warmer weather on the horizon in Poole and Bournemouth, now is the perfect time to start spring cleaning and getting your home ready for a fresh new season. From decluttering to deep cleaning, there are plenty of ways you can prepare your house for spring. In this blog post, we'll explore five simple tips that will help you get your house looking its best in no time. So grab a cup of coffee and let's dive in!

Spring Cleaning

The weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer. That can only mean one thing: it's time to start thinking about spring cleaning! If you're not sure where to start, don't worry. We've got you covered with our top tips for getting your house spring-ready.

1. Start with a deep clean

Before you start tackling your spring cleaning checklist, it's important to give your house a good deep clean. This means getting rid of all the dirt and dust that has accumulated over the winter months. Set aside some time to tackle each room in your house and make sure to clean every surface.

If you don't have time to do a deep clean yourself, there are plenty of professional cleaning services that can do it for you. Just make sure to get a few quotes before you choose one. If you are more interested in having your exterior professional cleaned then Amalgam can help. See the section below for more details.

2. Donate or sell items you no longer need or want

One of the best things about spring cleaning is that it gives you a chance to get rid of any clutter in your home. If there are items you no longer use or need, consider donating them to a local charity or selling them online or at a boot sale. Not only will this free up some space in your home, but it will also help someone in need. In the Poole and Bournemouth area, there are lots of options to donate the items you no longer want to keep. See the section below for more ideas on where to take them.

3. Clean out your fridge and pantry

While you're decluttering your home, take the opportunity to clean out your fridge and pantry as well. This job often gets put off and can lead to some unwanted smells emanating from your kitchen. Check all the expiration dates and toss any food that has gone bad. Then with your fridge cleared out, organise your fridge so that you can clearly see everything and the food will last longer.

Getting Rid of Clutter

One of the best and most cathartic ways to get your house ready for spring is to declutter and remove any unwanted items. We work alongside Organised Home Company who specialise in decluttering and organising homes in the Bournemouth and Poole area. Sometimes it can be overwhelming. Are you wondering: “Where do I start?” This is where “OHCO” come in. They can guide you through the decluttering process and will remove any unwanted items to be donated or recycled. Their firm belief is a clutter-free home creates space in our homes and heads leaving more time for what’s important. See their Instagram account to see some satisfying transformations. You’ll feel lighter and ready to conquer the spring clean!

If you were wondering what to do with your items then here are a few ideas for Poole and Bournemouth area:

Once you’ve decluttered you can organise what remains. This will make your everyday routines simpler, reducing stress and saving time. If you don’t have the time or desire then get in touch with Organised Home Company here.

Freshening up Your Space

When the warmer weather starts to roll in, it's time to start thinking about freshening up your space. Here are a few ways to get your house spring-ready:

1. Let in some fresh air. Once you've given your house a good cleaning, open up the windows to let in some fresh air. This will help get rid of any lingering dust or smells from the winter months.

2. Bring in some new life. Add some new plants or flowers to brighten up your space. Not only will they look nice, but they'll also help purify the air in your home.

3. Freshen up decorating. Sometimes you might notice that rooms need to have a lick of paint to look their best again. Sample pots can be a great way to do this without wasting paint. Check anywhere that has furniture leaning up against it, or areas that might have been exposed to damp over the winter.

Adding Some Seasonal Decor

Adding some seasonal decor is a great way to get your house ready for spring. There are many ways to do this, and you can find inspiration just about anywhere. Pinterest is a great place to start if you need some ideas.

One way to add some spring flair to your home is by adding floral arrangements. You can either buy these or make your own. If you want to save money, try looking for clearance items at your local craft store. Another idea is to add some greenery, such as potted plants or flowers in vases.

Another way to get your house ready for spring is by adding some bright colours. This can be done with throw pillows, rugs, curtains, or even wall art. Choose colours that make you happy and that will help brighten up your space.

Finally, don’t forget about the little things that can make a big difference. Things like changing out your doormat or adding a wreath to your front door can really help give your home a fresh, springtime feel.

Updating Your Outdoor Space

As the weather gets warmer, you may be spending more time outdoors. Here are some ways to spruce up your outdoor space and make it more inviting:

  • Give your porch or patio a fresh coat of paint.

  • Hang some new curtains or add some colourful throw pillows to your furniture.

  • Plant some flowers or add some potted plants to brighten up the area.

  • Add a new piece of outdoor furniture or decor.

  • Wash your outdoor cushions and blankets.

  • Sweep your porch or patio.

  • Pressure wash your patio or decking.
