Ready for Spring?!
What a Winter we’ve had in Central Ohio this year! And on days like today, waking up to several inches of snow, it feels like there is no end in sight. It is March, however, so we know that Spring is coming soon. In fact, the first official day of Spring is just a few weeks away. Start setting your mind on the warmer weather that is sure to arrive soon. And while you’re at it, get your home Springtime ready as well. As always, Connell’s has you covered with great ideas and beautiful home furnishings!
Breathe! On days like today you wouldn’t think of letting in the outside air, but in just a few short days the temperature is supposed to be in the sixties. On those warmer days, let some fresh air in for little bits of time. Move the stale air out and breathe in the fresh air and sunshine as you imagine what the upcoming months will bring. Look toward July and August and vow not to complain about the heat!
Rearrange! The simple act of rearranging furniture and other accessories clears a space and allows you get unstuck, if you are feeling that way after a long winter. Take an overall look at your room and see if the sofa can be moved from an entirely different space or if the bed can be rearranged against the opposite wall. If moving furniture feels like too much, just moving your accessories and smaller items around can make any room feel more open and spacious. Go with what you are most comfortable with.
Clean. Instead of investing a whole day to the traditional “Spring Cleaning” do little bits at a time. Vacuum, mop, clean windows, dust the high spaces. Clearing accumulated clutter and cleaning in spaces that don’t get cleaned in your weekly routine can help to move the energy in your home and get you ready for the days ahead.
Bright. When we think of Spring, we think of color. Come down to Connell’s today to look for ways to colorize your home. Perhaps it’s a brand new sofa, loveseat or sectional, or perhaps its something smaller. No matter what you choose, break out of the traditional and add some beauty to your home by adding more color.
Outside. Bringing nature in is a surefire way to get ready for spring. Houseplants are the perfect decor and they never go out of style. Visit a garden center and look for a new houseplant or tree that will add beauty to your home.
Garden. You may have to wait until May to start planting your garden outside, but now is the perfect time to sprout seeds for those veggies you’ll be enjoying in the Summer. Buy a variety of seed packets, including fruit, veggies, annuals and herbs and plant them in plugs then sit them in a sunny window and watch Spring take life before you.
Renovate! Redo a room or buy something new. Springtime is the perfect time for a room makeover. Painting is best when you can open windows and let the fresh air in. As you clear the clutter, you may notice a new use for a room that you never saw before. We have awesome deals at Connell’s during the Spring, so stop in today.
