Minimize Unused Clutter

A seasonal decluttering session is necessary for any sized space because clutter is bound to accumulate anywhere in which life happens. The simplest way to declutter is to evaluate what objects live in your everyday space but don’t see use every day. Adopting minimalism during your spring cleaning is an effective way to keep your most important valuables without compromising the volume of space in your home.

Wipe Down Surfaces

Spring cleaning a small space can help you notice any surfaces you regularly overlook during your usual tidying. After wiping down the coffee table and countertop, turn your attention to the surface of your blinds, ceiling fans, and mirrors. Some things may require a bit more work as well. For example, you may need to remove stains from the sofa with a special cleaner. After you restore a surface that you didn’t even realize was becoming worn, your small space will suddenly feel new again.

Switch Out Covers

Nothing embodies the feeling of springtime like diving into clean sheets. Large furniture like beds and couches serve as the focal point in a room, which means their impact is going to take even greater effect if the room is smaller in size. It’s important to wash or replace all sheets, duvets, and pillow covers (including decorative ones) to help restore the central focus of your living space.

Rearrange Your Furniture

One of the easiest spring cleaning tips for a small space is to work with what you already have. Don’t underestimate how a simple furniture movement can transform a smaller space. The fact that there’s less room can mean that minor changes stand out more. If conserving more of your space is the goal, consider revamping your storage methods to prioritize the items you want for everyday use. Then, put away the rest.

These tips are only a glimpse into what you can do to rejuvenate your home for spring. From planting a window box to decluttering that junk drawer, there’s a lot you can do. So continue your spring cleaning with an experimental approach to renew your humble abode.
