NJW, your Columbus, Ohio general contractors, are excited that spring is finally here! Spring means, house renovations are underway, and room additions are making people more comfortable. It also means you have to do some work around the house to get your home ready for the season! We have put together some tips to really invite the season into your home (and outside of it)!

Change Your Welcome Mat
Make a statement right through the gate (literally) with a new welcome mat for spring. This will welcome not only a new season, but whoever is coming to your door!

Clean the Windows
Rid your windows of all the gunk and grime from a winter’s worth of weather. It is amazing what a clear view can do for your mood too.

Add Flowers
Head to the local nursery and pick out some of your favorite blossoms. Buy bulbs to plant in your garden outside, and buy freshly cut flowers for various bouquets in your home.  

Brighten Up Prints
Change up your table cloths, throw pillows, hand towels and area rugs with brighter colors and bolder prints that scream sunshine.

New Table Setting
Buy some colorful new dishware for spring. If your dishware is white, buy some salad plates or bowls to accent them, or try cloth napkins or a statement table runner.

Flip Your Mattress/Change Bedding
Put away your heavy comforters and quilts and make way for lighter fabrics and softer colors for spring and summer. And we all hate doing it, but while you’re at it, flipping your mattress will increase its life span and help you sleep better, and who doesn’t want that?

Clean!
They don’t call it “spring cleaning” for nothing…and when you are done you will feel so much better, it is just taking that first step!

 
Lay Down Mulch
If you have a backyard, grab your rake and get to work! Prepare the dirt around your hedges for mulch or fertilizer and get your garden ready for a season of planting.

After you have done these few things you will find you are truly ready for spring and summer, you might be a bit tired but you will be ready! Also let us know if while doing all these chores, you discover a need for a room addition, outdoor patio, or any home renovations, we love working with our clients to discover new spaces they didn’t know they could utilize!
