For the last three months you’ve hunkered down, endured the cold, and waited patiently for the sunshine to make its way back out to greet you. Well, the waiting is over, as spring is officially here! This spring happens to also coincide with the Full Worm Moon, the last Super Moon of the year, making it a powerful time to do out with the old and make room for all of the new things you’re ready to invite into your space. It’s time to open the windows, clean out the closets, and get your apartment rental ready for whatever this next season has to bring you! Here are a few tips to help you along the way!
The sun can’t possibly shine into your apartment rental if all of your windows are covered in a wintery layer of salt, grime, and dust. Start off your spring-cleaning by grabbing the Windex and getting to work! Clean your windows inside and out, but don’t just stop there! Take your clean to the next level by taking the extra time to address your blinds, curtains, and window sills by dusting, vacuuming, and wiping them down with warm water.
Freshen Up Your Fabric
The stagnant months of winter can leave your upholstery and carpets yearning for a little TLC (particularly if you’ve been tromping in and out of your space in boots covered in snow, rain, and mud). Spring is the perfect time to give them back a little life. Whether you choose to do it yourself or hire a company to come in and do it for you, giving your couches, chairs, carpets, and throw rugs a deep clean is a great way to freshen up your apartment rental!
Reclaim Your Closet
If you can imagine the sun shining on your bare shoulders and a warm, spring breeze kissing your cheek, you can make this vision feel even closer by decluttering your closet! The time for heavy winter jackets, bulky sweats, hats, mittens, and thick, woolen socks is drawing to a close, so let your closet it reflect the coming changes by putting these things back in storage for the next few months! Looking at your lighter wardrobe each day will do wonders to remind you of all the positive changes happening around you!
The air vents in your apartment rental can become an unfriendly and unsanitary place during the long winter months. They naturally become a resting place for all of the dust, dirt, and germs you’ve unwittingly invited into your space. Cleaning your vents is a great way to eliminate some of the stagnation that’s settled in to have you breathing much easier.
Brighten Up Your Bedding
Kick the drabness and dreariness of winter to the curb by adding a pop of color into your living space. Invest in a comforter, blanket or duvet cover that’s bright and airy. It is a surefire way to invite a little springtime into your everyday experience.
Declutter & Decorate
Motivation can be a bit lacking in the cooler winter months, which can easily lead to an accumulation of unnecessary junk all throughout your space. Set aside a full day to take back your apartment rental! Make a playlist of your favorite tunes, crank up your Bluetooth speaker, and get started dusting, decluttering, and rearranging your space! You might even take this one step further and bring in some new decorations that will help to liven up your home. Grab some fresh flowers at the supermarket, some colorful tea towels for your kitchen, or a bright, new welcome mat for your front door.
Prep Your Outdoor Space
Lastly, don’t forget to take your enthusiasm outside! Your outdoor space has likely been a bit neglected over the past few months, and now is the perfect time to bring it back up to snuff so that you can enjoy the first day of spring surrounded by nature. Sweep and pressure wash patios, throw away dead plants leftover from last year and perhaps plant some new greenery! When it’s time for your first BBQ, you’ll be all ready to go!
