Replace those fleece blankets with colourful plaids and give your sofa a fresh look with new pillow covers. Roll up those thick winter carpets and let your wooden floor breathe. Light cotton table cloths and a few scented candles can do wonders.
Don’t forget the wall decorations: hang up some new frames, artwork or wall prints with bright colours and eye-catching patterns. Don’t feel like investing in a slew of new and colourful accessories? Tip: replace your lampshades and you’ve got a new home. Literally bring the outdoors inside by adding a few new indoor plants or vases with beautiful leaves and fresh-picked flowers.
Are you truly in good spirits at the start of spring? Then rearrange the furniture or take down those heavy winter curtains and put up lighter ones with a colourful print.
During the autumn and winter months a lot of dirt finds its way into our homes unnoticed. Frequent light maintenance of your floor – using a dry or damp microfiber cloth – is enough to keep dirt from piling up but thorough cleaning a few times a year is still necessary. Also, moving around your furniture when cleaning or rearranging your interior may leave black scuff marks on the floor.
No worries though: all of Quick-Step’s vinyl, laminate and hardwood floors are easy to clean. Dissolve a small quantity of the special Quick-Step maintenance product for your floor in a bucket of water, soak a microfiber cloth in the solution and wring it out really well. Use the cloth to wipe the floor taking care not to leave behind any moisture.
Try to remove tough stains and scuff marks with a dry cloth first. If this doesn’t work, soak the cloth in a small quantity of the special maintenance product and apply gently. If you have an oiled hardwood floor, the spring cleaning is the perfect time to treat your floor with the appropriate Quick-Step maintenance oil. Let the oil soak in for a few minutes and then wipe the floor dry with a clean cloth. If during cleaning you notice that the floor is lightly damaged in places then you can easily remove small dents or scratches with the Quick-Step repair kit.
