If you are looking through the windows of your Branson home, it may be difficult to see, but according to the calendar, spring is just around the corner. Underneath that blanket of snow, the buds of your summer flowers are preparing to push through the ground, the gray sky is waiting to turn blue, and warmer temperatures are only weeks away. Knowing that spring is so close, its time to take care of some of the things you have been putting off all winter. We’ve compiled this to-do list to help your home be at its best in the new season!
If you weren’t able to get to it in the fall, spring is also a good time to change the color of the exterior of your home. Take a good look at the color of your roof and then head to the home improvement store for some samples. This could be the most difficult part of the painting procedure, so now’s the perfect time to waffle over color selection. By the time spring arrives, you will be ready to start the change!
During the long months and short days of winter, we tend to neglect the exterior of our homes. But as the warmer temperatures start trickling in, you’ll find yourself wanting to be outside as much as possible. Sweep your walks, pluck out any dead plants or weeds in the flower beds, and if you have stored the cushions for your patio furniture, pull them out and give them a good scrubbing.
It’s not called spring cleaning because it’s done in the fall; open the windows, air out the rugs, and start de-cluttering. If you get an early start on your spring cleaning, it won’t be so daunting. FYI, the standard rule of thumb in decluttering is that if you haven’t used it in two years, it must go!
