Helpful Guide for a Spring Refresh

Check out this list of productive activities you can do whilst at home!

1. Give the kitchen a deep clean

This is one of those tasks that is long overdue and you just haven’t had the time to do it. Well now is the time. Make sure to get under those appliances, in every cupboard and even give the oven the clean it’s been waiting for.

2. Do some gardening

Give your garden some TLC. With this sunny weather we’re having there’s no excuse to get the grass cut, get those weeds pulled out and why don’t you plant some flowers in time for summer?

3. Clear out old clothes

We know we all have a bunch of old clothes we never wear buried away in the back of our wardrobes or draws. Why not pull them all out and have a sort through? This can clear up a lot of space in your storage which makes room for even more clothes, it’s a no brainer!

4. Up – cycle your old furniture

This one is for those who are feeling especially creative. Do you have an old piece of furniture lying around? Well why not up-cycle it? This can work with anything such as a coffee table, a chair, an old storage box etc. First give it a good clean to get rid of any old dirt marks, then a good polish, you may also need to sand it down. Then grab some paint and decorate it however you want. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

5. Re-Arrange your furniture 

Re-arranging furniture or certain items around the house can help give you a fresh outlook in your home and make it feel like a whole new environment. Perhaps there’s a mirror that would look better in another room, or maybe you’ve always want to move the sofa around and re-jig the room layout? You’d be surprised at the difference it can make in your home and guess what, it costs nothing so why not give it a try?
