Spring has sprung now that the warm weather and longer days are upon us. Spring cleaning has homeowners wanting to freshen up their homes and make it feel all more comfortable and inviting for themselves and their guests alike. While what makes your home feel ready for spring will depend on what you feel like needs a refresh, here’s a few must-have essentials no matter what you are most eager to do this spring.
Flowers And Plants
The tell tale sign of spring is seeing nature come back to life. It’s the vivid green that seems to pop up overnight and the colorful flowers that quickly follow. If you’ve always been nervous about starting a flower garden, make a quick stop at your local flower shop and an expert will be happy to pick out the perfect starter flowers for you based on whether you have pets, plan to have your plants in the house or planted outside and how much light they’ll be able to receive.
Even adding a beautiful potted plant to your home, without the intention to really find out if you have a green thumb, is a perfect way to bring in the start of everyone’s favorite season. All that’ll have to be done is watering, as needed, and the right amount of water. With that, having a little green in the home will bring the quintessential joy of spring.
With longer and warmer days, everyone will be itching to do all they can to be outside as much as possible. In pleasant weather, there’s no reason to really have to be stuck in the kitchen when making dinner. If a grill isn’t already on your patio, there’s no better time to get one than right now. Given you do have one, now’s the time to make sure it’s clean, still operational and ready again for regular use.
If the grill itself is ready to go, make sure you have all the accessories you need. Think of items like steel brushes, tongs, a handy spatula and items like that. Also, make a stop at your local propane supplier and grab yourself a new tank. There might still be some left in your tank for last year, but it’s always wise to have a little extra on hand,
Lighter Clothes And Bedding
As the spring weather rolls in, you’ll first still be dressed for winter but find yourself cracking the windows during the day and possibly right before you go to sleep for the night. Having the fresh air inside the house again will be a treat on its own but that won’t feel right forever. To make sure you are ready for spring, have some lighter clothing, both you and your bed, ready for use.
In terms of both bedding and clothes, before you think about tossing the heavy blankets and hoodies into the closet for the season, remember that it’s only springtime and the intense heat of summer is still a ways off. For now at least, consider the lightweight materials opposed to just ditching hoodies and blankets altogether.
