3. Tidy the entry. Put away any lingering winter gear, handle piles of paperwork and clean up the newly uncluttered space. If your entry doesn’t already have storage, add a few hooks, a rack or tray for shoes and a basket to collect stray items.
4. Clean interior windows, mirrors and light fixtures. We all know that shiny-clean interior windows and mirrors make for a lighter, brighter home — but when was the last time you cleaned your light fixtures? Lamps, sconces and pendant lights can all accumulate quite a bit of dust and grime, eventually to the point that the amount of light given off is diminished. Gently wipe down light fixtures with a damp microfiber cloth to maximize illumination.
5. Make your kitchen counter a place of peace. It’s natural for the kitchen counter to accumulate stuff. It starts innocently enough: a blender for smoothies, your coffee pot, a cutting board, a bowl of fruit. But there comes a point when a cluttered counter becomes a magnet for more clutter, and pretty soon your counter is swamped with stray rubber bands, incoming mail, hair ties and half-finished homework. Clear the decks and start fresh by removing everything from the counters. Put away anything that has a home elsewhere and clean the surface. Then selectively put back only the few items you use daily or find beautiful and inspiring. Better, isn’t it?
