How to Declutter Your Home for Spring

It’s so easy for mess to build up when you’ve got a family and a hectic schedule, so it’s important to take care of your home when you get the chance. Spring is the perfect time to refresh and rejuvenate your home – as the days get longer and the weather warms up, you have a fantastic opportunity to declutter and create a more spacious and serene living environment.

To help you prepare for spring’s arrival, we’re sharing a few simple tips with you on how you can create a tidier and more relaxing space for you and your family to enjoy.

Start with a Plan

Before you begin, plan! Identify the areas in your home that need the most attention. Whether you want a clean kitchen, beautiful bathroom, bedrooms with toy-free floors or an organised living room, just break each room down into manageable parts and tackle one area at a time to keep things from getting overwhelming.

Use the Four-Box Method 

The four-box method is a simple, but really effective technique to help you declutter. Just label four boxes as “Keep”, “Donate”, “Trash” and “Relocate”. As you go through your items, sort each of them into one of the boxes – but be ruthless! Keep only the items that you truly need or love to stop things building up again.

Organise Your Items 

Fitting your rooms with practical and stylish storage solutions will help you to stay organised and keep on top of all of the important tasks, even if you have a busy routine. From baskets, bins, shelves and hooks, you can find the perfect storage accessories for anywhere around your home. Remember, there’s a place for everything and everything should be in its place.

Maintain Your Clutter-Free Home 

The act of cleaning and de-cluttering is not only great exercise but also helps you feel better. Once everything is done, you are rewarded with a comfortable and welcoming space to relax each day, and a happier living environment has been proven to work wonders on your mental wellbeing. So embrace the spirit of the season and start your spring cleaning today!
