To me, spring is the time when everyone is refreshing their home, with an aim to reduce clutter and truly make your home feel new, clean, and sparkly. If you are in spring cleaning mode, here are 4 ways to make your home sparkle this sprin:
Reducing clutter in your home isn’t just great because it reduces the amount that you have to clean, but it can also help you to stay more organized. I don’t know about you, but being organized definitely makes me happier! Having less material things in your home can make it easier to find the things you need when you need them and get on with the rest of your life. Whenever I talk to friends and family members about living a more minimalist lifestyle, we always come to realize that there is so much stuff in our homes that we just don’t need. Having all of this extra stuff can make us feel bogged down, stuck, and take away from the value of the things that actually matter. Not to mention that when you keep only those things that you truly love and find happiness with, you appreciate them so much more. Start small, by organizing and decluttering just one area, then gradually work your way around your home. Enjoy your new, organized, happier life!
Invest in a great kitchen and bathroom
When you purchase a home, what are some of the things that you automatically want? Most people want a beautiful kitchen and luxurious bathrooms. With that being said, upgrading both your kitchen and your bathrooms now is an investment to make – a great one – and it will also help you enjoy your home so much more, too, while you are living in it. You could do a shower reno, or update your floors, but one thing that ALWAYS stands out to me is beautiful countertops and pretty backsplash. If you are planning to replace your bathroom or kitchen backsplash, definitely check out Click Countertops. They have a square footage calculator for countertops, which makes it super easy to get an estimate for your project and they are committed to making the process “Amazon easy” for their customers.

Add in cozy items
There is something about comfy items around the home, making it so much more enjoyable and comforting. Updating these items to cozy spring items will definitely help your home sparkle and stand out this year! Cozy up on the couch or in bed with lots of blankets, pillows, and a good movie or a book. Adding flannel sheets, full down comforters, extra blankets (maybe even a heated blanket, or heated mattress pad), and lots of pillows will definitely keep you warm and cozy as the weather keeps dipping between warm and cold this spring. Cuddling in bed or on the couch with lots of blankets does not sound like a bad way to spend a weekend, in my opinion, and the comfy items that I listed above will make your home much more enjoyable now.
Focus on landscaping
Okay, so apparently EVERYONE is selling and buying right now – the housing market is insane! With that being said, if you are planning to join the majority, you’ll definitely need a sparkling front porch – to show off what you have to offer! When buying a home, first impressions are key! If you have ever bought a home, think about how you reacted when you saw the houses you looked at for the first time. You most likely made some sort of a judgment based on the outside of the home, including the house itself, but also the yard and area around the home. Improving your landscaping should be on your to-do list to prepare your house to be sold. This can include tasks like planting flowers, adding fresh pine straw or wood chips to some areas, keeping your lawn freshly cut, and pulling weeds to make sure your yard looks nice and clean. This can make a surprisingly big impact on potential buyers’ overall impression of the house!
