Is your apartment home getting a little stale? The long winter months can leave things feeling stark and stagnant, but spring is upon us once again, offering the perfect excuse to change things up and bring new life to your living space.
It’s the perfect season for some deep cleaning. Tackle some cleaning jobs that are easy to forget, such as dusting baseboards, cleaning ceiling fans, vacuuming upholstery and laundering window hangings. Wipe down windowsills, empty and wipe out kitchen cabinets and drawers and dust all those knick knacks and shelves. You’ll be left with a fresh clean space you can’t help but love.
2. Add Seasonal Flair
Update your apartment home with some fresh spring touches. Plant a container garden on your balcony or patio, place a fresh bouquet on your table or update your bedding with lighter sheets and blankets. Even something as small as a new doormat can make a difference.
3. Tackle Small Maintenance Tasks
Are there smaller maintenance jobs you’ve been neglecting around your apartment home for a while? Getting these done will give you a great sense of satisfaction and a new fondness for your living space. Check all your light bulbs and make sure they’re working properly, take time to conceal those messy cords, and even shampoo the carpet. These quick updates can make a big impact on your living space.
