April showers have come and gone, leaving us with May flowers! But before you can enjoy all that this month has to offer, it's best to ensure that your home is in great shape. Take a look at some helpful suggestions to spruce up your space this May:
- Clean you grill: If you're planning on hosting a Memorial Day barbecue this month, you're going to want to make sure that your grill is spotless. Chances are your grill has been unused for many months, so ensure that you scrub off any dirt and debris so that it can work properly. Then, pick up some burgers or veggies to grill!
- Tidy up your home's exterior: "Spring cleaning is a term usually applied to interior chores, like tackling a cluttered closet or removing cobwebs from ceilings. But an outdoor cleanup makes a lot of sense, too," writes Jeanne Huber of The Washington Post. "Besides making your yard more inviting for summer barbecues, hauling away piles of branches, half-rotted wood and other debris can go a long way toward making your yard less hospitable to rodents."
- Wash windows: Now that the weather is finally starting to warm up, it's the perfect time to air out your house by opening windows. After all, what's better than a fresh spring breeze on a gorgeous afternoon? Wash your windows, as well as corresponding window screens.
As always, if you're in need of new custom curtains and drapes, shades, blinds or shutters this spring, be sure to contact Metropolitan Window Fashions for a complimentary at-home appointment. Our home design consultants can ensure that your space is stylish this May!
