Pollen, dust, dry dirt, and even soil, is spread more widely and rapidly during springtime than any other season. The home is bombarded with little flecks of each and it makes it harder to keep clean each week. For many decades we’ve always thought of spring cleaning and something that is annual because we have time to clean our homes more regularly. In fact, it’s largely due to spring making our homes dirtier, naturally. Think about it, we’re not so far from autumn when it was windy. It’s not so hot that the winds have died down. But it can still rain and nature is beginning to shake off its cobwebs. The best way to combat the increase in dirt and debris in the home is to choose decor that makes cleaning easy.
It’s so annoying when you have a floor that is thick and dense, during springtime. It traps in so much heat that it’s almost impossible to control the temperature in your home. That’s why something like laminate flooring is so valuable at this time of year. The warm weather is going to make dust drier and easier to be transported, even a small gust of wind, around the home. Working with the brand, you select the grade and layer, before then moving onto selecting the pattern and style. Laminate floors are tough but thin, so you can walk barefoot on the floor and not be singed by the stored energy that the sun lashes onto other floors. Consider the smaller patterns for smaller rooms like the kitchen. If you’d like to have a contrasting color for your living room whereby the decor is lighter than the floor, choose a darker tone.
Non-stick storage space
Springtime is wonderful. The days are longer and we have more time to read a book after we get off work. This can lead to extensive use of our storage sideboards and bookshelves. Dust and dirt get carried in our clothes and the more we interact and touch our storage spaces, the dirtier they become. Non-stick storage space would be far easier to clean. That’s why you should consider a vinyl Scandanavian sideboard for your home. There’s plenty of top surface area which you can use to stand figurines, lamps, and ornaments if you wish to decorate this space. However, the inside of each row is easily cleaned with a simple household paper towel. There’s no need to use damp cloths or washing detergent to clean away stains either.
Ceramic pots and vases
During the previous decade, wooden plant pots and storage cups became very popular. They still are in fact, because we’re conscious about the environment and we want more eco-friendly decor. However, ceramic pots are far easier to keep clean and they rebound light across the house unlike the former. They also make for great vases and general plant pots. Contrary to popular belief, white isn’t the only color, you can have the classic Mediterranean style if you wish.
Spring cleaning is a project that takes up to a week to fully complete. These decor items and choices, make the home far easier to keep clean while still looking alluring and stylish.
