Spring is right around the corner. You know what that means! It’s time for spring cleaning, decorating your apartment, and switching out heavy bedding to prepare your apartment for spring. What better way to feel rejuvenated and recover from winter blues than by fully immersing yourself in the new season? We suggested some fun things you can do indoors while it’s cold. However, it’s time to look forward to warmer weather, more sunshine, and blooming flowers everywhere (after we get past all the rain). Get your apartment ready for spring with these tips!
Get Your Apartment Ready for Spring with Spring Cleaning
Cleaning your entire apartment can feel overwhelming, but it’s worth it. We suggest not tackling everything at once. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are seven health benefits associated with spring cleaning, including:
- Feeling accomplished
- Feeling less stressed
- More peace
- Improving your focus
- Reducing apartment hazards
- It gets you moving and gets those endorphins pumping
Even if you don’t have the energy to clean your entire apartment, do whatever you can to make it appear refreshed.
Buy Fresh Flowers
Spring is synonymous with fresh flowers. Fresh flowers smell lovely, add a pop of color to the apartment, and enhance your mood. Buying fresh flowers is a perfect way to say “hello” to a new season. Buy your favorite flower to add your unique flare to your apartment. After a long day, you’ll be happy to return to your apartment to see and smell your beautiful flowers.
Try Different Scents
Each season is synonymous with unique scents. For example, some people love pumpkin-scented plug-ins or diffusers during the fall. Switch up your scents by buying aromas that remind you of spring, such as various scents from flowers, rain, plants, and more! Fruity and tropical scents will remind you, your family, or your guests that spring is here. You can also switch up the shampoo or lotion that you use.
Brighten Up Your Apartment
The best part about spring is that it gets brighter and we get to experience more daylight hours. Therefore, we suggest you open your curtains and soak up the sunshine. Natural light can enhance your mood and help with your productivity.
Get Rid of Things You Longer Need
Part of spring cleaning is decluttering. If there are things you no longer need, you should donate them. For example, if you are looking through your spring wardrobe to discover you haven’t been able to wear some outfits in years, it might be time to give away these clothes. You don’t have to become a minimalist per se, but life is much easier when you’re using your space efficiently.
Make a New Playlist
While it often rains in spring, spring is also a time of happiness and to start anew. What better way to start life anew than by enjoying a new playlist? Music, like fresh scents and flowers, sets a tone. Whether you pick something fun/upbeat or soft/mellow, you deserve to dance and twirl around your kitchen.
Get Creative with Decorations
You can prepare your apartment for spring by adding new pops of color, buying a bright area rug, or adding personal touches to your apartment that you might not have used before. There are many affordable ways to get creative with decorations and create a personalized space. Thinking outside the box and making your apartment your own can be a lot of fun.
