Spring has sprung which means it’s the perfect time for your annual clean up and a chance for you to sort through your home and get organised. From tasks like rearranging your wardrobe, cleaning the carpets, decluttering the house and adding a new interior style to your home with some finishing touches, there are some easy tasks you should put on your spring cleaning to-do list to re-vamp your home!

If you’re stuck on ideas on where to start sprucing up your home, we’ve created a list of the top 6 things to do when spring cleaning your home. Read on to find out more!

  1. Organise your wardrobe:

The best way to get started spring cleaning your home is by starting at your wardrobe. Whether you have a chest of drawers or a walk-in closet, it’s all the same. Store or get rid of any clothes you haven’t worn in over a year. Organise your wardrobe into clothing types and colours or even outfit options if that helps you!

Once you’ve started to clean out your wardrobe, your clothes will feel and look more appealing and choosing your outfit every morning will be much easier.

A fun thing to do is invite friends or family over to go through any of your old clothes, or sell them at your local market.

  1. Get rid of clutter:

Now that you’ve started the cleaning process, move onto the rest of the house by getting rid of clutter. That includes unnecessary rubbish, papers, books or old items around the house that you don’t need or use. Sort them into a rubbish pile and a pile you can give away or donate.

  1. Remove stains and odours:

Refresh your entire house by getting rid of stains and odours. That could mean cleaning the carpet, scrubbing any mould from the bathroom and airing out your bedroom or house. A good tip is to use a mixture of vinegar and hot water and get scrubbing!

  1. Clean the floors:

paintingTiles, wooden floorboards and carpet all need to be cleaned thoroughly to remove any dirt and grime. Wooden floors only need hot water and a mild cleaner, while something with neutral pH on the label works well for tiles in the bathroom or kitchen. Call the professionals in to give your carpet a good steam clean and leave it feeling nice and new.

  1. Add a coat of paint:

You’ll be surprised what a coat can paint can do for your house. Paint chipping and fading is a way of life, particularly if you have little kids, so adding a coat to cover up any chips or damages is a great tip. If you have the time and are bold enough, you could even add a new tone or colour to the homes’ walls. 

  1. Re-vamp the style of your house:

Now that you’ve got the general maintenance done, it’s time to freshen up the interior styling! New cushions, a bed spread, curtains, paintings or small ornaments around the house can instantly add a refreshed and modern feel to your home. While you’re at it, buy some gorgeous new blooms for that pretty finishing touch.
