The birds are beginning to chirp more frequently as springtime rests just around the corner and it couldn’t come at a better time! After all, who couldn’t use a break from the oftentimes dreary, drab days of winter? If spring fever has a hold on you, there’s no need to waste any more time! Follow this quick list to implement easy changes that will have your apartment rental feeling spring ready in no time!
Clean Out Clutter
Your apartment rental has essentially been a nesting spot for the winter, making it easily susceptible to becoming a big, cluttered mess! Before you can truly invite in the fresh, new energy of spring, you’ll have to do what’s necessary to clear out your space of any excess items it may have accumulated. This is the time to fling open closets and dresser drawers, getting rid of any items that seem to only be taking up space! Don’t forget cabinets and pantries, where countless purposeless items have likely found a home over the course of the past few months. Be honest with yourself over which items you are truly likely to use in the future and which ones are better off finding a new home. Clean as you go and your entire space is sure to feel like new by the time spring comes knocking on your door.
Add a Splash of Color
While winter calls for richer, deeper tones that help you to feel warm and cozy, spring is a time to kick the color in your apartment rental into high gear. This could be as grandiose as painting an accent wall in a spirited shade of yellow or blue, or as simple as swapping out some accent items to offer more pop to your space. Throw pillows, blankets, rugs and wall hangings are all great ways to amp up the springtime energy in your home.
Lighten Up Your Bedding
Your bedroom has served as a space of hibernation over the winter, but the time has come to throw back the covers and jump out of bed with new vigor. Replace heavy blankets and comforters with lighter linens that won’t encourage such indulgent sleep habits. Choose fresh, bright colors such as crisp whites, bold yellows, pinks, blues and greens to keep you inspired and excited as you bounce into spring.
Bring in Fresh Greenery
If you look outside the window of your apartment rental, you’re likely beginning to see the first indications of spring. Snow and ice are beginning to melt, the ground is thawing and you may even be starting to notice signs of new life all around you as tiny green shoots emerge from the Earth. This process is what makes spring such a wonderful time, full of possibility and purpose. Invite some of this uplifting energy indoors by filling your space with fresh flowers (tulips, pansy’s and crocus are some beautiful options) and indoor plants that will help to filter the air and brighten up your home.
Move Around Furniture
If the winter woes are heavy in your home, it might be a good time to really shake things up by switching up your space. Get some friends and determine if there are other ways you could make better use of your floorplan that will help to open it up and make it brighter! Move couches, tables and accent pieces in your main spaces or head into your bedroom and play with the layout for your bed, dresser and desk!
Don’t Forget Your Windows
So much grime and dirt get accumulated on your windows during the winter months. If you really want springtime to shine into your apartment rental, you’ll have to clear away whatever is preventing it from doing so in the first place! Cleaning the inside and outside of your windows will have a huge effect on the amount of natural light that is able to filter into your space. Nothing is more effective than sunlight to uplift your mood and shift the energy in your apartment into high gear!
Lastly, move into the kitchen and take advantage of any counter space you have available to display beautiful baskets of fresh, seasonal fruit. A colorful bowl of ripe bananas, apples, oranges and more will serve as a constant reminder that spring is just around the corner!
