Spend time inside rearranging furniture

Rearranging Your Space

Just because you aren’t in the market for a new sofa or bedroom set, doesn’t mean you can’t spice up your current decor. Changing the layout of your furniture is a quick fix that can transform your current space. Move your bed to a new wall, switch lamps or a carpet from a different room, or simply move around some of your wall hangings. These quick, simple changes can make a world of difference and make you feel like you have a new home all over again.

Cleaning & Organizing

There is no better time for spring cleaning than now! When you’re feeling bored at home, try tackling a few of these tips:

  • Clean all your vents and baseboards – with allergy season in full force, the dust that accumulates around your house is more noticeable than ever. When cleaning these areas, we recommend using a vacuum cleaner with a dust brush or a microfiber towel. Using water and cleaning products often smears the dust, instead of picking it up.
  • Although you may vacuum and sweep on a regular basis, when was the last time you moved your bed or the couch to clean underneath? Probably a little longer than any of us want to admit. Now is the perfect time to check these areas and clean out any under-the-bed storage, as well.
  • Clean your drawers – We all have that one drawer in our kitchen – often called the junk drawer, that gets a little hard to close at times. Take time to clean out this drawer and reorganize, you may be surprised at what you find!
  • Closet cleanout – Even if you keep your closet in tip-top shape. When was the last time you took everything out and went through it? It’s probably been a while. Take this extra time at home to declutter your closet and throw away or donate the items you don’t use anymore. For more information on having your donations picked up, click here.

After you tackle a few of these tasks, you may not only be feeling better, but breathing better too!
