It’s officially spring, which means sunshine, cool breezes, and a fresh start. Spring cleaning is a great way to clear your home and your mind but getting started can be overwhelming. Sometimes, though, all you need is a little organization, and Build.com is here to help with that. Before getting into a full-scale remodel or redecoration, here are some tricks and products to help get your life in order.


For the bedroom: Closet Organization

A great way to kick off your spring cleaning is to simply go through your stuff. Styles change, as does your personal preference, which makes spring as good a time as any to comb through your clothes and accessories and get rid of ones you don’t wear anymore. For those remaining items, closet organization like these baskets and vertical hanging organizers keep your closet clean and tidy, making the rest seem a little less overwhelming.


For the bathroom: Use Vertical Space

Counter and cabinet space are sometimes limited in bathrooms, especially smaller half-baths, so making good use of the available vertical space is crucial to storing everything you need. Taller linen towers like this one don’t take up a lot of floor space, but they do offer a lot of good storage space. The open shelves on the top also let you create a visual display for a little extra flair.


For the kitchen: Find Multi-purpose products

If you’re looking to redo your kitchen for a little extra space, creating more cabinet and counter space is the clear way to go. In the meantime, though, finding furniture that can serve more than one purpose lets you get the most of your space. A bar cart like this one does double duty as just that, a bar cart, but also is a stylish storage space for drinks or other pantry items. A bigger shelving unit has a surface that can be used as a cutting board and also offers storage space for larger appliances you don’t use as often.

In any spring cleaning, keeping a cool head and staying organized is the key to success. If now isn’t the right time to remodel or do a full-blown redecoration, these quick and easy tips can help you start the year fresh.
