Spruce Up for Spring
It’s almost time to celebrate spring and shake off the last bits of winter. To get your home ready for spring, follow this simple spring-cleaning guide from Bona.
Clean floors last.
It’s best to clean rooms from the top down so that any dust and debris won’t find their way onto a newly-cleaned floor.
Dry mop/dust floors.
Use a microfiber mop to dust your floors. Using a floor mop will gently remove the initial layer of dust and debris on floors. Vacuums are ok, but all the extra weight and tools can scuff or damage a floor. If using a vacuum, avoid using the beater bar and use a bare floor attachment/setting.
Spray mop floors.
Use a spray mop cleaner designed for your floor type. Avoid DIY vinegar solutions or steaming your floors since they both can damage your floor’s finish, leaving it look dull and cloudy. Avoid using an excess amount of liquid on your floors.
Apply a new coat of polish.
Now that your floors are clean and dry, applying a coat of polish is a great way to rejuvenate your floor’s finish. A coat of polish can even out a floor’s look, filling in any small scratches and adding a new protective layer on top of your floor.

Add some paint.
Paint is a quick, easy and cheap way to get a new look. You can change almost anything with a fresh coat of paint—walls, countertops, appliances and exterior doors can be primed and ready for a new look. And it’s not just a color change. There are many paint kits available that can mimic other surfaces like stone and stainless steel.
Upgrade your handles.
Instead of replacing cabinets, consider updating their look by installing/upgrading handles. This simple addition is a subtle way to change the look of a room.
Improve your walls.
Add a bit of luxury to your rooms when you install things like chair rails, picture rails or crown molding. There are even crown molding kits that will allow for simple installs. Each of these wall options are inexpensive and go a long way towards changing the look of your home.
Change your fixtures.
Upgrading light or sink fixtures is another go-to improvement solution that will immediately impact the look of a room. With the wide range of fixtures available, it’s easy to find a budget-friendly option.
