Quick Spring Declutter Ideas

We don’t know about you, but we think Spring is a lovely time of year. The blossom is coming out, the days are getting longer, and although there’s been a nip in the air, warmer days are on the horizon. And of course we’re all enjoying the gradual lifting of lockdown restrictions which is adding an extra frisson of excitement.

The change of the seasons is a great time for a bit of a declutter and a reorganisation at home. And of course it’s traditional in many cultures to do a “Spring clean” – freshening and cleaning the entire home to mark the transition from Winter. Decluttering can also be a great way to lift your mood and burn off a bit of energy – and let’s face it, lots of us could do with that after so many months of lockdown!

So here are a few ideas from us to get you started. We’ve deliberately chosen a few smaller projects that are not too overwhelming or time consuming but will go a long way towards helping you feel lighter and brighter and ready for Spring.

Smarten up your doorway – the entrance to your home is the first thing you see when you come home, and the first thing visitors see when they arrive. Now is a great time to have a bit of a tidy up around your front door or porch. Areas like this tend to gather dead leaves and cobwebs, so give it all a good sweep, don’t forget to give the paintwork a quick wipe down and polish your letterbox or door knocker. You could consider adding some finishing touches like a smart new doormat or a pot of colourful flowers.
