The season of spring is rolling in fast, and there’s no better way to welcome in the warmer weather than refreshing and renewing your home. As the flowers start to bloom and the temperatures begin to rise, say goodbye to those winter blues by bringing spring indoors.
Make time for spring cleaning
An annual spring cleaning is a great way to make your home feel brand new again, and it provides a fresh start for the new season. To start, scope out your home to see what’s needed and plan from there. Is it a month's worth of reorganizing first? Or just a day designated to spring cleaning? Map out your objectives for each room throughout your home and highlight the areas that need more attention. Although it may be tempting to jump right in without a plan, having a set schedule will help. Get the family involved, and clean throughout your Trophy Signature home from room to room. Whether you’re scrubbing the bathrooms, mopping the floors, dusting and wiping off surfaces, cleaning out the pantry and fridge or changing the sheets—a good deep cleaning is a great way to re-energize your home and prepare for spring.
Declutter the corners and closets
There’s no doubt that all of us collect clutter over the winter season—whether it’s from the holidays, the hectic weather or anything in between. Clutter can be a lot easier to attract than most people realize. But regardless of how the mess got there, it can be a bit difficult to get rid of it. A good starting point is to identify problem areas of clutter within your home, and then you can analyze the reasons for it. Is the clutter there for a specific reason, and is it necessary in any way? A simplified and decluttered wardrobe can be the beginning of a real mood-booster, and now’s the perfect time to reorganize your clothes for the spring season. Some ideas for ridding your home of clutter is to host a yard sale, invest in storage elsewhere, donate, or simply throw items away.
Revamp your yard
The beautiful spring weather brings the perfect opportunity to spend some time in your yard, but it may need some extra care and attention after the harsh winter. Take some steps to get your lawn and yard back in shape, such as raking leaves and collecting large branches that litter your yard and garden beds. Give your home an instant neat look by pruning your trees and shrubs, and consider applying fertilizer and weed killer in your yard to ensure the greenest, healthiest grass. Plant springtime flowers in your landscape such as Summer Lilies or Tulips to cultivate fresh aromas and add even more scenic value to your Trophy home. For the ultimate outdoor space, incorporate some outdoor furniture to your porch or patio—and enjoy the fresh spring warmth and cool night air in your own backyard
