An entry or mudroom is a great place to start your cleaning because it is where you enter your home. Walking into a clean entry will continually inspire you to tidy up the rest of your space.

Organize your entry by installing hooks or shelves for each member of the family. Add a simple shoe organizer to help keep your entryway clutter-free & use some cute bins to store (hide) outdoor equipment & seasonal clothes!

Dining Room

Tidy up your dining room to encourage yourself to prepare sit-down meals with your family. As weather warms up, grilling is a simple way to prepare quality meals you can share with your family. Now that school is out, kids have time to sit down & enjoy a meal without distraction (maybe at least once a week 🙂 )

In the dining room, try to make decor easily movable & changeable so you can easily decorate for each season. Like a simple basket on the table can be decorated with flowers, candles & wreaths depending on the season.

Office/ extra rooms

There are many ways to tidy up & personalize this space that is a little more private. Be creative!! Browse Pinterest for inspiration & ideas!

Isn’t a clean kitchen one of the most refreshing things!?

Make cleaning this room a family activity & have kids help wash dishes, toss out expired food from the refrigerator & help dream up/create something new to add to the space!

Organizing the pantry or creating an accent wall is a fun place to start!


If you’re like me, the bathrooms are the least favorite to clean. So… to make time pass in this space, think of one thing you could add to the room to make it more functional.

Do you want to add shelves to allow for more storage? Is there a piece of artwork or new rug you think could brighten up the space? Use cleaning time as a time to inspire yourself to continually create a happier home.


Bedrooms are another great spot to dream of trying some new DIY projects. We often forget the value of our own bedrooms, so busy making the more public parts of our home presentable. But there is great value in creating a restful, peaceful bedroom where you both start & end your day.

If creating a peaceful space in your bedroom means simplifying, grab boxes so you can toss stuff in one spot to donate while you are cleaning. Cleaning up your bedroom may just provide the head-space you need to get your creative juices flowing.

Living Room

The main living space is one of the most special rooms in the home because it is where we experience the most community. Inviting friends/family/neighbors into this space in your home creates bonds, builds relationships & brings more life into your home.

If you are looking for a change in your living room, check out the ReStore! You can find items perfect for you style & taste, then donate your old furniture to the store as well! We’ll even pick it up for you!

Other Rooms

Extra rooms in your house, like a laundry room, four-seasons room or even your outdoor deck or patio could also use a little freshening up before the full swing of summer.

Don’t forget to spruce up these rooms so you can fully enjoy the summer ahead!

Hopefully, these photos & tips inspire you to create something new & beautiful in your home as well as motivate you to do a little spring cleaning!
