If you're thinking about giving your home a fresh look this spring, you've come to the right place! Our team of experts at Taskers of Accrington has years of experience in providing valuable guidance on stylish home furnishing that is perfect for the new season. If you're looking to create a light and airy living room to relax in, we're here to help. From choosing the right pieces to lighten up your space to the cleaning jobs to put on your list, we’ve got you covered with everything you need to ensure that your vision is brought to life. Let's get started!

Start with a declutter

Spring cleaning your living room is a great way to refresh your home and create a more organised space (tidy home, tidy mind). No one wants to live in a stuffy home throughout spring and summer, so the first task is to declutter everything that you don't need that you've accumulated over the colder months. To make the task more manageable, make yourself a list to help you through the process. It’s up to you what you choose to put on your list, it could include steps like:

  • Removing all necessary items from the room
  • Sorting them into piles (keep, donate, recycle, or throw away)
  • Deep cleaning the living room (including dusting and wiping down surfaces, vacuuming or sweeping floors, washing windows and curtains, and wiping down furniture)
  • Reorganising the space to create a more functional and open feel.

A list can help you stay motivated and organised while decluttering your living room. And in turn, it'll help you achieve a clean and fresh living space, which you can then use as a base for your new springtime decor!

Revive your furniture and surfaces

With spring in full swing, it's the perfect time to give your home a thorough cleaning and refresh. Dust and other buildup tend to accumulate over the winter months, so tackling them head-on is essential. Start by dusting and polishing surfaces with microfiber cloths, paying particular attention to hard-to-reach areas or anywhere you'd typically forget, like door frames, shelves, and light fixtures. It’s also a good opportunity to give your windows a good clean so they shine, and don't forget to open them and let in some fresh air while you work.

Spring is also a great time to give your upholstered furniture a deep clean by removing any detachable cushions, thoroughly hoovering in the crevices, and using specialised and gentle cleaners for any lingering stains. It's also the perfect time to strip all of your throws and cushion covers and toss them in the washing machine. If they're your winter covers, you can pop them away, ready for the next winter season.

Clean those carpets

Keeping your carpets and rugs clean maintains their appearance and longevity, keeps them comfy, and ensures your living room looks stylish and put together. An easy way to do it is to hire a push-around carpet cleaner. They're inexpensive, and you can usually do the job in a couple of hours. It makes a world of difference (or you could hire a professional and put your feet up).

Accessories with textures and accessories

Now that the cleaning is largely out of the way, you can start transforming your room into a springtime oasis with texture and accessories. We’d suggest keeping things light for a fresh and spacious feel, especially for your curtains and sofa cushions. To us, when it comes to furniture nothing says spring more than light wood and wicker, so the Woodland Living & Dining Double Basket Console Table and Woodland Living & Dining Single Basket Console Table are great options. For something a little softer, the Kepino Hand Woven Pit Loom Natural Wool Pouffe or Isaba Hand Woven Pit Loom Natural & lvory Wool Pouffe would be the perfect touch.

As for accessories, you can’t go wrong with scented candles, and we love the Marmalade of London Wellbeing Calm Luxury Glass Candle. Pair this with a light coloured vase like our Abelia Vase or Athena Porcelain Vase Large and your living room will start to take shape!

Get some greenery

Last but not least, get some greenery! Nothing says spring quite like fresh blooms and foliage. Low-maintenance plants like succulents, spider plants, and peace lilies are all great options that look great but also easily thrive in a variety of indoor conditions. They aren't too complicated to keep alive if, despite your best efforts, you tend to forget to water your plants. Not only do they purify the air, but they also add a touch of nature to your living space, making it more inviting.
