Spring is a time for renewal and reinvigoration – and with the longer days and blossom bursting forth outside – it’s time to cast off any winter residue inside. A guaranteed way to do this is to give your home a good old-fashioned spring clean and a revitalising refresh. So dust away the dirt, open the windows and follow our simple steps to usher in the new season.

 

Get organised

It might be a cliché, but clearing out the clutter – and keeping what you need where you can find it – will bolster your surroundings and your soul. Busy, messy surfaces sap energy and waste valuable time spent looking for things. Smart, stylish storage is your friend,

Lighten up

The simplest way to freshen your home is to switch heavy textures and moody tones for lighter, brighter ones. So pack away dark drapes, woollen throws and cosy cushion covers and introduce cool cotton fabrics and soft, spring hues.

Pack properly

Ensure winter woollens are clean before putting them away – you don’t want to attract a moth party – the critters love dust and dirt. Keep them from feasting on your finest with natural (non-smelly) moth traps from totalwardrobecare.co.uk. Save space with surfaces that can double up as storage.
