This time of year, we can’t get enough of all things “new.” New grass is growing, new flowers blooming, and we want our homes to look and feel as fresh as the springy outdoors. You can make your home feel like new simply by casting fresh eyes on what you already have – you never know what might strike you.
…in your own closets. From clothing to cleaning supplies, you just might rediscover something you’d forgotten hidden behind your everyday items. Whether it’s an outfit that’s been waiting for warmer weather, or a hand-me-down piece of artwork that would fit perfectly in your breakfast nook, you may be surprised by what is already hiding in your home!
While you’re searching for hidden gems, don’t hesitate to get rid of things that are just taking up space. Spring is the perfect time to find new homes for household items that have been outgrown or replaced – be it books, clothes, kitchen items – you name it! Look for a local donation center for items still in good condition, or consider hosting a yard sale in your neighborhood.
Try to look at the items you see everyday in a new light. That pitcher you take out occasionally when you host guests for dinner? It might make a perfect, flower-filled centerpiece. Or those jars in your recycling bin? Clean them up to create custom storage for your bathroom. Look for creative new uses for everyday items to help transform your space.
We’re making the most of the spring season here at Haven Ridge, too – we’ll be hosting our annual Community Yard Sale this Sunday, April 19. Stop by and start planning how to transform your home with something new from Haven Ridge!
