Spring has sprung, and it's time to breathe new life into your living space. At Coal & Cove, we're all about maximizing experiences while minimizing clutter, so we've crafted the ultimate spring cleaning checklist for you. With a focus on minimalism, let's dive into some creative and engaging ways to freshen up your home this season.
Give your textiles a facelift by opting for lighter, more breathable fabrics. Pack away those heavy winter throws and replace them with simple, monochromatic linens or a lightweight Knitted Sofa Throw Blanket. While you're at it, air out your bedding, launder your linens with eco-friendly detergent, and flip your mattress for a fresh start.
Declutter Like a Pro
Channel your inner Marie Kondo and declutter your space. Get rid of items that you no longer use nor serve a purpose. Organize your wardrobe, packing away winter clothes and making room for those stylish spring outfits. Use sustainable storage options like our Linen Storage Baskets and Hand-Woven Wicker Baskets for a cleaner, greener home.
Deep Clean, Minimally
Who says you can't deep clean without going overboard? Focus on one room at a time and choose just one or two tasks to tackle. Start from the top, dusting ceiling fans and light fixtures, then work your way down to windows, walls, and floors. Use natural cleaning products like vinegar, baking soda, and lemon to maintain a chemical-free space.
Fresh Air for a Fresh Space
A minimalist home thrives on fresh, clean air. Open your windows to let in the spring breeze and invest in air-purifying plants like peace lilies or snake plants. Not only will these plants cleanse the air, but they'll also add a touch of greenery to your space. If you are not much of a green thumb, our Charcoal Air Purifying Bags are a great sustainable alternative.
Simplify Your Kitchen
Time to show your kitchen some love. Deep clean your fridge, oven, and microwave, focusing on removing grime and food debris. Organize your pantry with our Dry Storage Jars, dispose of expired items, and wipe down your shelves. For more shelf space, stack your tableware with our Kitchen Cupboard Organizer. Don't forget to clean your dishwasher and sink for a sparkling, spotless kitchen.
Embrace the Outdoors
Last but not least, give your outdoor spaces a refresh. Sweep your porch or patio, and clean outdoor furniture with a gentle soap solution. Prune overgrown plants and remove dead leaves, creating a clean, open space for relaxation. Add a cozy seating area with furniture and lighting to complete your outdoor sanctuary.
