The outside of your home is the first thing everybody sees, so let’s make it pop. Treat your front door to a lick of paint and you will no longer have to deal with the flecks of dried colour dropping onto the doorstep. Perhaps your exterior walls have a few drips of paint from a previous renovation or there are graffiti markings to clear up. If you’re looking for a way to remove unwanted paint from your walls then consider professional powerwashing. You will see the outside of your house transform from dull to dazzling overnight.
Give your garden a good old clear up, by preening your hedges and planting some new colourful flowers. Make sure you clear up any stray rubbish that might have blown across your driveway and keep your bins neatly tucked away to avoid an unsightly view. Consider repainting your garden fences to refresh the outdoor atmosphere. You are much more likely to want to spend time in a clean and pristine garden than a neglected one.
Complete Carpet Cleanse
Your carpets aren’t quite the same colour as when you first bought them. They seem to have transformed from a cool cream to a glaring grey and you’re not sure how they got to that point. When you’ve got little ones running through the house with their dirty feet it’s a normal thing to face. Get your other half to treat the kids to a day out and have some fun with a steam cleaner. You will notice instant results and your carpets will be looking fresh from top to bottom.
The kitchen is one of the most visited rooms in the house; everybody seems to hang out in there. It’s no wonder that grime and grease has built up on every surface, not to mention the overcrowded cupboards. Spend an afternoon emptying out your kitchen drawers and throw away any unnecessary items. Look up some unique kitchen storage solutions and you will feel way more organised. Give your cooker a strong scrub using homemade, natural cleaning products. Steer clear from strong-smelling toxic substances and allow a breeze into your kitchen for a few hours. Let the fresh air flow in and you will be boasting a beautiful kitchen in no time.
Tackle every little nook and cranny, with a complete clear-out and cleanse right now. Life seems totally tranquil and perfectly productive when you have a spotless home, so don’t push this one aside to deal with later. Now is the time to give your home a wonderful makeover, which your whole family can enjoy.
