Did you know that spring cleaning and makeover is your chance to make your home sparkle?  This is the perfect time to step out of your house and ensure that everything is on point. Spring makeover goes beyond the simple everyday cleaning.

According to Elle Décor, spring sprucing and makeover goes beyond eliminating hidden dust, dirt, and debris that have accumulated over winter. It is also about organizing everything in your home and ensuring that your landscaping is quite appealing. Kick off your spring in style with these simple 11 makeover tips that will make your home sparkle.

Clean the Windows 

This is the time of the year to let in more sunshine.  Take time to clean your windows to get rid of dust that had accumulated over winter. Make sure that you clean both the inside and outside to give it that perfect appearance. For a simple homemade glass cleaner, mix distilled white vinegar and water. Pour the mixture into a reusable bottle and channel the inner Hazel.

Install Window Treatments 

This is something that is often overlooked, but it is essential to any home.  There is no better time to re-look at your windows and bring in new window treatments than during spring. Apart from blocking out the excess sunlight, window treatments also create a unique surface that allows your eyes to travel from wall to wall without any interruption. Simple roman shades can provide an incredible look for a tailored room. 

Reorganize Your Closets 

Almost everyone hates the idea of reorganizing their closet since it is a difficult task. However, this is an essential makeover tip for spring. Focus on one cabinet at a time and make sure that you do your best. Declutter, clean, and organize as you go. Trust me; your Monday mornings will no longer be gloomy with a well-organized closet. 

Pay Close Attention to Your Lighting 

Make sure that you inspect all the lighting in your home and fix all lights that are no longer functional. You can also do simple tweaks to your light fixtures to make your home sparkle. For instance, you can keep the bulb wattage low so that no lights overwhelm a room. You can also install dimmers to allow for flexibility in your interior spaces. Just take your lamps to your trusted electrician and this feature will be introduced.

Rearrange and Refresh 

Sometimes, sprucing up your home is as simple as rearranging what you already have. Rethink your living area arrangement and figure out if you can make it any better. You can rearrange your furniture or your wall paintings to give your interior spaces that new look. Decorate subtly around a unique theme, feel free to bring in accent pieces form your other rooms and don’t be afraid to experiment with various styles.

Paint

Painting both your interior and exterior spaces is another simple spring makeover tip that will make your home sparkle. Never leave your walls painted in standard white since it affects your curb appeal negatively. Choose your custom colors that compliment your overall style. Experiment with various color shades and don't be afraid to go bold.

Take Care of Your Landscaping

This is the right time to plant new plants and take care of the existing ones. Get rid of all the weeds from your lawn and apply fertilizer. Trim overgrown shrub branches and make sure that your flowerbeds are sparkling. You should also water your grass to make it greener. Forbes reports that taking care of lawn can go a long way toward improving your home’s curb appeal.

Double Up Your Door Mats

You will only trap the most dirt by using two doormats, one outside the door and the other one inside. If you have been using a single doormat, get another one as soon as you can. However, the doormats will not be effective in trapping dirt if they are dirty. Hose off and air-dry your doormats frequently You should also vacuum your inside mats on both sides to allow all trapped dirt to get on the floor so that you can pick it up.

Create a Feature Wall 

You can also create a dramatic feature by painting in a fresh and unique color or consider applying a well-patterned wallpaper that blends with your existing color palette. For instance, if your living space is predominantly grey, why not paint a section of your wall red? Or try fitting self-adhesive, reusable wallpaper.

Revive Your Mattress

Spring cleaning also presents the perfect time to look at that thing under your sheets. Press it firmly with your vacuum's upholstery and crevice tools to thoroughly clean the sides. Go ahead and spot clean any noticeable stains with mild subs or upholstery cleaner. After washing, let it dry and then sanitize it with a powerful disinfectant.

Fresh Frames

You can also revitalize your existing gallery by painting your wooden frames with different springtime shades such as cerulean, sunny yellow, and pink. If you wish to add in some floral fair, feel free to add silk flowers to your wall art.

Conclusion 

Refreshing your home during spring and making it sparkle doesn’t require a lot of effort.  A fresh coat of paint, well-maintained yard, and a decluttered closet can all rejuvenate your interior and exterior spaces. Also, make sure not to spend too much money on trivial things, and seriously consider a reliable home security system!  We hope that these simple spring makeover tips will help you transform your property and make it sparkle.
