1. MAKE THAT LIST
The first thing you need to do before you embark on your spring cleaning journey is to make yourself a to-do list. This way you won’t overlook important tasks and keep yourself on track.
2. DECLUTTER, DECLUTTER, DECLUTTER
It's time to get cut throat and throw away all those things you thought you would use but never have. The papers that have been piling up, the clothing you've been saving but never wear. It's time to make space - out with the old, in with the new.
3. GIVE YOUR SKIRTINGS A TOUCH OF LOVE
Give your skirting boards and window frames a lick of new paint. This will help them look brighter, newer and make the colours in each room pop little more. A small update that will upgrade your home is always a good idea.
4. SIMPLIFY YOUR STUFF
Streamline your shelves for a clutter free space. Choose a few personal items and merchandise your space with a few of your favourites.
5. STAY COOL AND CALM IN THE BOUDOIR
Pack away your heavy duvet and bring out that light, cool blanket. No need to sweat in your fresh, light sheets as the days and nights get warmer.
6. LIGHTEN THE (WINDOW) LOAD
It’s time to get light around your windows and switch your heavy curtains out for something lighter, brighter and breezier.
GET THE LOOK: You can change any window with new sheer curtains or blinds. Use collection Atmosphere to get the look in your home, or opt for a ready made if your space permits.
7. PLAY WITH VARIATIONS
Sprucing up your scatters can be a fun, colourful experience. Pair different fabrics and colours together to get a lighter, cheerier look in your lounge. Always remember to keep a common colour so that the look pulls together in the end.
GET THE LOOK: You can change up the look of your scatters in a jiffy by recovering them with something a little brighter. Collection Southbank is perfect for this because it has a common colour tying each design together.
If you have an old chair or couch that's looking a little tattered and worse for wear, don't chuck it, give it some fresh new threads for a refreshed look at half the price of buying new.
9. GO GREEN
Now that it's springtime, a little bit of greenery is welcome in just about any room. House plants freshen and filter the air in your home while adding some colour. Plants that work well are ferns, peace lilies, philodendron and massangena canes.
