It’s also important you examine your air conditioner before the summer to make sure it’s in good working condition. If you need to contact a service professional, do so now because it will be less costly than if you do so three months from now.

Bring out Your Vases

Fresh flowers are a joy and this is the best time to introduce them in your apartment, particularly if you had substituted them with dried flowers throughout the colder months. Make sure you give the vases a thorough wash, so they can sparkle and substitute those that look worn out.

Bear in mind that cut flowers last longer in daily-changed water and including a drop of bleach helps keep bugs at bay while maintaining freshness.

You should also remember to strip the leaves’ lower stems when arranging flowers in the vases because they could soon become a slimy mess.

Rugs

Area rugs beneath the sofa or bed in a colorful palette will supply the much required springtime color to brighten your room. Introducing a new throw rug along with matching towels in the kitchen or bathroom will add a revitalizing pop of color. Consider a multi-colored block pattern or fun stripe in the rug.

Throw Pillows

You’ll also find that throw pillows are the easiest way of adding spring color in addition to being economical. You’ll not only give your sofa a facelift but also make your space more inviting and warm.

Spring Cleaning

Wallpaper

You can include wallpaper in your apartment by adding it to the back of your bookcase for instance. You can fit wallpaper in picture frames to add some color.

Change Your Curtains

While this might be a luxury for most, keeping two sets of curtains every year can transform a room totally. For spring, a gauze-like lightweight material is ideal over an open window.

Alternatively, if you are investing in a new set of curtains, think about purchasing a reverse set that offers two varied moods.

On one side, it can show off warm tones for winter while on the reverse side, opt for something that lifts the color palette for the sunnier months.
