I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. The weather here on the East Coast was just perfect.
Martha and I spent the long weekend in Maine getting the house ready for the coming summer season. There certainly was a lot to do and all the prep work really got me thinking. Most people already know about spring cleaning and have their routines for cleaning and re-organizing, but what are the steps you need to take to get your home ready for the summer?
Below are some easy and practical suggestions to help you enjoy your home during summer a little more.
Throughout the house, hang window screens, clean fans, inspect alarms, clean the fireplace and air everything out. Then, open up screen windows and doors and let in the fresh air.
In the living areas, freshen up the entryway, change out curtains, clean rugs and carpets, and clear surfaces.
Make these easy updates in the kitchen and bath.
