Stop the boredom now with some fun spruce up the home and garden tips!
Now that we are in lockdown and many of us are spending our days at home by practicing social distancing and doing our part to flatten the curve, it is important to create new routines and to find meaningful ways to make the most of our free time at home. One great way is by keeping our home spaces clean and tidy. This will definitely give our minds something to focus on and keep our body active.
Here are our top tips to keep your home organised and to spring clean your home while in lockdown.
- The Heart of the Home: The Kitchen
There are still loads of exciting things to do in the kitchen, like joining in on the bread-making frenzy! Social distancing has spawned a new generation of home bakers and my what brilliant bakers we’ve turned into during lockdown! Baking is also a wonderful way to help ease anxiety.
While you’re at it, it’s also the best time to clear out your kitchen cupboards. Organise the entire contents of your kitchen cupboards and spice racks. Be sure to check the expiration dates on those canned goods at the back! As they say – a tidy kitchen, a tidy mind.
- A good night’s rest is essential: The Bedroom
Organise your wardrobe! With more time to spare, now’s the time to declutter your wardrobe and put away those pieces that no longer see the light of day. With winter gone, it’s time to wash and store your winter items such as winter coats, hats and gloves!
- The most lived-in area of any home: The Living Room
Get smart with space! When was the last time you took a look at your bookcase? Use this time to reorganise and refresh your bookshelf, pack books that you won’t be reading anytime soon in a box to store. Then, wipe down the shelves and rearrange your book collection for a cosy book night and a warm mug of hot chocolate (with marshmallows!)
- Sow seeds of comfort at home: Garden
Do some gardening! Spring is here and the sun is shining. In these unprecedented times, a bit of gardening can add a little spark of positivity into your daily lives. Not forgetting the sense of satisfaction of growing and eating your own food. This time of year, the weather is great for growing vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, spinach and lettuce. If you don’t have a patch of greenery outside, don’t fret… plants such as rosemary and thyme make perfect window sill and balcony gardening. Time to bring out the garden furniture and watch your plants grow!
- Boost your spirits with Spacious Living
With more time spent at home, it’s time to make sure your home is cosy but not cluttered. Move those boxes that you don’t need and store them with us in our Cube Self Storage units. By doing so, you’ll get more space at home to move about and adopt a more comfortable lifestyle during these challenging and uncertain times.
