6 Practical Spring Organization Tips to Refresh Your Space

spring organization

As the days grow longer and nature awakens with bursts of color, there's no better time to breathe new life into our living spaces. Spring is a season of renewal, and what better way to embrace its spirit than by reviving the order and harmony within our homes? In this blog we will focus on organization tips that not only declutter our spaces but also breathe a fresh sense of vitality and freshness into our surroundings. From tidying up forgotten corners to reimagining storage solutions, these tips are designed to not just transform the physical order of our homes but to impact the very ambiance we live in. Here are some simple yet effective ways to rejuvenate our living spaces. It's time to bid farewell to the winter blues and welcome a home that resonates with the lightness and positivity of spring.

“I definitely advocate for a seasonal refresh, particularly in the spring. Even though we have mostly sunny days here in Los Angeles, there is something psychologically gratifying about shedding unwanted or unneeded items just as the flowers are blooming.” - Stefani Stein, designer

Spring Refresh: Assessing and Decluttering Spaces

Begin your spring rejuvenation by assessing each area of your home with a discerning eye. This is an opportunity to go much further than just putting the Christmas ornaments away.  Think about all the extra bric-a-brac that has been added to your shelves, stacked on your coffee and end tables or layered on your couch.  This is a time to step back and really look at what each item in your room looks like, remove older, worn and damaged items and restore harmony to your room.  

Evaluate your bedroom oasis by decluttering bedside tables and shelves. Rotate your seasonal wardrobe, putting away the sweaters, heavy coats, gloves and scarves.  If you layered your bed for extra warmth in winter, clean some of those warmer items and store them away for next winter.  While you are doing that, really take the time to look at your bedding and replace badly worn items.

In the kitchen, purge expired items from your pantry, rearrange cabinets for efficiency, and consider implementing storage solutions to maximize space. The benefits of this decluttering process extend beyond mere tidiness – a refreshed space promotes mental clarity, reduces stress, and instills a sense of calm.

“Instead of the usual declutter by room, we declutter by category in this order: clothing; books; paper; komono (a.k.a. miscellaneous) items found in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, home office, art/craft room, playroom, and garage; then sentimental pieces.” - Vivien Lee-Mayhue, organizing consultant, founder of Tidy Up Los Angeles

Revive Your Space: Refreshing Home Textiles This Spring

We love the idea of transitioning your bedding with the start of each season, but particularly in spring and fall.  This is a time to swap out heavy winter colors and fabrics for lighter alternatives like linen, or styles that evoke spring color and pattern, like florals. This is in opportunity to not only capture the essence of the season but also keep you comfortably cool as the days get warmer. Embrace fabrics like cotton and linen that effortlessly regulate temperature, ensuring a restful and cool night's sleep. Consider incorporating decorative throws or accent pillows for an extra touch of seasonal flair. Think about updating your window treatments to allow more natural light to filter in, amplifying the airy freshness of spring. Making these simple adjustments to your bedding not only ushers in the freshness of spring but also contributes to a more invigorating and visually appealing bedroom ambiance.

Spring Bedding and Decor Revamp: Organizing Your Home for the Season

We can't imagine it bears saying, but don't be one of those people that still has remnants of the holidays well into February!  Don't get us wrong, we love decorating for the holidays, but the end of the holiday season is a good time to start the process of organizing for spring.  Invest in some clear, stackable plastic containers with good fitting lids to carefully put your holiday decorations away in.  While you are savoring the last moments of the holiday and the memories attached to each treasured item as you pack them away, look around at your room and think about how you want your space to fill with spring coming.  In the living room, think about incorporating floral throw pillows or pastel-hued accent pieces; bring the outdoors in with potted plants or fresh blooms in the kitchen; replace your heavy blankets and throws with something lighter and airier for the warmer months.

Seamless Transition: Organizing Storage Spaces for Spring

Maximize your storage spaces by strategically preparing for the seasonal transition. As winter gear makes its way into hibernation, free up valuable space by storing heavy coats, blankets, and winter accessories in vacuum-sealed bags or under-the-bed storage containers. Consider rotating seasonal items, placing spring essentials at the forefront for easy access. Optimize closet space by organizing clothing by category and donating or storing items that are no longer in season. For bulky winter boots and shoes, invest in stackable storage bins to keep them neatly tucked away. As you streamline your storage areas, not only do you create a more efficient space for spring items, but you also make the seasonal shift a seamless and organized process, setting the stage for a refreshed and clutter-free home.

“Sometimes the chaos gets worse before it gets better, so keeping it contained can be key to keeping one’s sanity during the process. If you don’t have the luxury of custom solutions, grouping by categories using baskets and bins can be a fantastic alternative.” - Stefani Stein, designer

Seasonal Shift: Embracing Natural Light and Greenery at Home

Harness the revitalizing power of natural light and greenery to infuse your home with the invigorating essence of spring. Open up curtains and blinds during the day to maximize the influx of natural light, creating a brighter and more uplifting atmosphere. Consider strategically placing mirrors to reflect and amplify sunlight throughout your living spaces. Elevate the freshness by incorporating indoor plants – not only do they bring a touch of nature indoors, but they also enhance air quality and contribute to a sense of well-being. Opt for low-maintenance plants like snake plants, pothos, or succulents to effortlessly introduce greenery into your home. For a burst of color, choose flowering plants that complement your decor. By prioritizing natural light and integrating green elements, you not only enhance the visual appeal of your space but also foster an environment that promotes rejuvenation and tranquility, aligning perfectly with the spirit of spring.

Fresh Start: Rejuvenating Cleaning Routines for Spring 

Revitalize your living spaces by embracing a rejuvenated cleaning routine that sweeps away the remnants of winter and ushers in the freshness of spring. Start with a thorough deep clean – dust neglected corners, wipe down surfaces, and vacuum carpets to banish winter dust and allergens. Consider steam cleaning upholstery and curtains for a comprehensive refresh. Introduce eco-friendly cleaning products to your arsenal, reducing your environmental footprint while ensuring a healthier home. Utilize natural ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, and lemon for an effective and chemical-free clean. Tend to overlooked areas like windowsills and baseboards, and don't forget to replace air filters for optimal air quality. As you embark on this cleansing journey, not only will your home sparkle with newfound radiance, but the eco-conscious choices you make will contribute to a healthier and more sustainable living environment for the seasons ahead.

Of all the seasonal transitions, spring stands as the perfect crescendo for a renewed and invigorated home. As we bid adieu to winter's hibernation, the importance of spring organization becomes clear – it's not just about decluttering and cleaning, but a holistic rejuvenation that breathes new life into our living spaces. By implementing the practical tips shared in this blog, you're not just tidying up; you're orchestrating a transformation that aligns your home with the vibrant spirit of the season. Embrace the power of natural light, infuse your space with the calming presence of greenery, and reevaluate your storage spaces to accommodate the ebb and flow of seasonal changes. As you embark on this journey, envision a home that mirrors the freshness and positivity of spring – a sanctuary that not only sparks joy but also embraces the newfound energy that the season brings. So, let the tips become action, and let your home blossom into a haven of revitalized tranquility and renewed vitality.

Happy spring organizing! 

FAQ

What are the most common bedding types for Spring?

Spring calls for lighter and breathable bedding options such as linen and cotton. Embrace fabrics that regulate temperature, ensuring a cool and comfortable night's sleep. Explore new bedding styles with fresh arrivals that feature vibrant patterns and colors, creating a welcoming and seasonal atmosphere. Don't forget to incorporate cozy throws or accent pillows for an extra touch of springtime comfort.

What are 3 things you can give away during spring cleaning?

Consider giving away or donating items that you no longer use, such as old clothes, furniture, or home decor. Share these items with others to spread joy and create a sense of community. As you declutter, think about organizing a garage sale to sell unused items and make room for new, purposeful additions to your home.

What month should I start spring cleaning?

Spring cleaning is often best started in March or April when the weather begins to warm up. However, the exact timing can vary based on personal preferences and schedules. Begin your cleaning routine by creating a checklist and setting achievable goals, ensuring that every corner of your home gets the attention it needs. Kick off the season with a special sale on cleaning essentials, making it the perfect time to stock up on eco-friendly products.

What is the 12-12-12 rule for decluttering?

The 12-12-12 rule involves selecting 12 items to throw away, 12 items to donate, and 12 items to be returned to their proper place. This simple rule helps streamline the decluttering process. Use this rule as a springboard to create a minimalist and joyful living space. Capture before-and-after moments of your decluttering journey to inspire others on social media, fostering a sense of community engagement.

Which room to declutter first?

Start with the room that feels most overwhelming or is frequently used. This could be the bedroom, living room, or kitchen. Tackling one room at a time can make the process more manageable. Consider creating designated zones in each room, such as a reading nook or an organized workspace, to maximize functionality and bring a sense of order to your living spaces. Share your room transformation on social media to inspire others to embark on their own spring organization projects.
