Renew and Rejuvenate: Simple Ways to Refresh Your Home for Spring

Renew and

During this season of renewal and rejuvenation, Mother Nature is busy sprucing up the outdoors with layers of vibrant colors as flowers bloom and trees grow new leaves. Why not take a page out of her book and freshen up your indoor space as well?

Spring is the perfect time for a top-to-bottom refresh of your living spaces, because having an organized and tidy home not only looks good, it can reduce feelings of overwhelm and anxiety, increase productivity and focus, and create a sense of calm and order. Who doesn’t want more of that right about now?

Whether you have a house full of clutter or you simply need the touch of a deep clean, you’ll be happy to know there are several hacks and products that can make this process a breeze!

Start Small: Tackle one space at a time

There’s a good reason most people dread the idea of spring cleaning–it can be overwhelming. Overstuffed junk drawers, crowded closets, piles of laundry, misplaced items strewn about, and dust that appears to be several inches thick, can make tackling it discouraging.

By focusing on one space at a time, you can make meaningful progress as you clean up and clear out. One clever trick is to set a timer as you make your first round. Take breaks as needed and aim to accomplish as much as you can within your timeframe. For more cluttered areas, you can separate items into three piles:

Toss out

Ask yourself, “Does this item serve a purpose?” and “Does this item bring me joy?”

You may not consider yourself a minimalist, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play the Minimalist Game (#minsgame) for a more structured approach. It gamifies the decluttering process, calling for removing items at a set pace over a 30-day period. On day one, you get rid of one thing. On day two, you get rid of two things. And so on throughout the month, culminating in 465 items that don’t meaningfully serve you, no longer taking up space in your home.

Whichever way you tackle the process, keep going. Once you’ve accomplished your goal and vision, it’s time to move on to the next space!

Get Those Closets Organized

No matter how cluttered or overwhelming a closet might feel, bringing a closet organizer or hanging rack into the mix is never a bad idea.

Whether you have a tiny closet with limited room or a big walk-in closet, check out these simple yet effective closet organizers from Amazon to help declutter and free up space.

Keep it eco-friendly

The days of using toxic-laden products to clean our homes and workspaces are a thing of the past. Today’s green alternatives allow us to deep clean without the use of harsh chemicals that can be hazardous to our health and the environment.

Try these and other products for a safe and reliable cleaning that you can feel good about:

Brighten your space with pops of color

Give your space a whole new look simply by changing out pillow covers, a statement chair, throw blankets, and small accents such as frames or vases. Flowers can also be a great way to add cheer and color to any room and you can often find beautiful and affordable selections at your local farmers market or smaller grocery stores like Trader Joe’s. Another quick and easy option to brighten up your space is to add a fresh layer of paint or wallpaper. You’d be surprised how the smallest shifts in color and decor can add zest and vibrancy to liven up even the most dull surroundings.

As you tidy up and renew your space, enjoy a feeling of lightness that allows you to breathe, focus, and re-charge in your freshly cleaned and organized environment.
