Spring Cleaning + Home Organization
There is no better feeling than coming home to a clean house - which is our motivation for our annual deep clean. Spring is the perfect time to get rid of all the “stuff” laying around your home that you can live without. After deep cleaning your home and refining your belongings, you will feel the rich benefits of rooms and spaces that can breathe, flow easily, and facilitate deep relaxation. Here are our top tips for a successful spring cleaning:
Make a Schedule
One of the biggest challenges when it comes to spring cleaning is getting started!
Creating a cleaning + organization schedule keeps you on track and helps you to prioritize spaces that need the most work. Regardless of where you start, having a written plan will keep you focused on the task at hand. Just go room by room.
Still don’t know where to start? Or you’re having trouble creating your own schedule?

Declutter Your Home
Studies have proven that a cluttered home leads to higher stress levels and lower productivity. Let go of unnecessary stress and reinvigorate your mind by purging your home of old, unwanted, or unneeded “stuff”. Since we’re all spending more time at home and in our home offices specifically, keeping a clean and orderly workspace is more important than ever. A good place to start is that junk drawer you’ve been avoiding.
Maximize Your Storage
There is nothing better than a beautifully organized kitchen cabinet. Maximize your storage spaces to eliminate clutter and ensure that every item has a home.

Incorporate Decorative Storage Solutions
Something that we love about spring cleaning is the opportunity to incorporate beautiful and decorative storage solutions into our homes. These pieces can not only be wonderfully functional but also one-of-a-kind or unique, adding personality to the space you’re organizing. Keep your home stylish and your belongings neatly stowed away by adding a fun hutch or trunk into your dining room.
