Start your spring sort-out early...

This time of year may still be feeling fairly bleak on the weather front, but fear not—spring is on the way! Well, it’ll get here eventually, and with spring comes the chance for a fresh start so we can all feel a little bit brighter. It’s the perfect opportunity to give your home a once-over whether it’s a deep clean, a thorough sort-out or a time to get started on all those DIY projects you’ve been talking about for months, so why not get started early? Having a head start will mean you’re not racing to get things done in time for summer, and with plenty to keep you occupied it’ll be the perfect way to chase away the winter blues once and for all.

Get cleaned up

Chances are a spot of spring cleaning will be on the agenda, and there’s nothing better than having a sparkling clean home to enjoy for the rest of the year. You’ll want to give everything a thorough once-over paying particular attention to the kitchen and bathroom, and this isn’t time to cut corners—you want to cover everything from the oven and fridge to giving the skirting boards a quick dust, because keeping up with the cleaning schedule will be much easier if you’ve got a home that’s as clean as possible to begin with.

Out with the old, in with the new

It’s a great time to have a bit of a sort out too, so start going through your home to see if there’s anything you could get rid of. Clutter will do your home no favours and it’ll turn your cosy abode into a chaotic one, so make sure to consider everything from your wardrobe to those knick knacks that have started to accumulate. You could have a car boot sale or perhaps donate the bulk of it to charity to do your good deed for the month, and it’s a great opportunity to treat yourself to a few new items as well—items of organisation, of course, with shelves and cabinets (for example) helping you organise the things you’ve got left.

Fixer-upper frolics

Finally, you’ll want to take a look at those DIY jobs that could be building up. Chances are there’s something that could benefit from a bit of a fixer-upper project, so why not get out the tool box and see what you can do? It could be something as simple as putting up those shelves that have been kept in the box since you got them, installing wall panel heaters for a bit of extra warmth, perhaps hanging that mirror that was a Christmas present or even taking a look at the garden and putting up that wooden garden arbour in time for the sunshine—whatever you’ve got to do now’s the time to do it, and with the help of DIY shops in the UK (such as us) you’ll have everything you need to give your home a once-over and bring it up to scratch in time for spring.
