Spring is almost here. With the weather warming up, it’s a good time to show your house some love after spending so much time in it during the winter. Winter weather can put stress on the interior and exterior of your house—but with some love and effort you can give back to it.

There are many ways you can do this, but these seven different ways to love your home are a good place to start:

1. Hardwood Floor Treatments

2. Clean Tile Grout

3. Paint Kitchen Cabinets

4. Organize the Garage

5. Paint the Front Door 6. Window Treatments

7. Flowers

Hardwood Floor Treatments

Hardwood flooring is a good way to add character to your home, but it takes some maintenance to keep it looking nice. Over time, hardwood floors start to show wear and tear from all your family and friends walking on them—especially after the holiday season.

Here’s an easy DIY Wood Floor Treatment from the Healthy Home Dream Team that will give your flooring just what it needs! If you have other types of flooring such as laminate or tile and want to polish them up too, check out our article on How to Polish Your Floors.

Clean Up Tile Grout

Tile grout is one of the hardest places in the whole house to not only clean, but to keep from getting dirty in the first place--especially after all the foot traffic and spills that can stain it. That’s what makes this a great project for loving your home.

Some grout stains may only need some water and a stiff brush, but others might take more cleaning power to get out. BobVila.com has some great tips and tricks for getting those pesky grout stains out.

After all the stains are gone it is important to prevent others from happening. To prevent future stains we have a few grout products you might like to try.

Paint Kitchen Cabinets

With all the cooking that goes on in the kitchen, your cabinets are bound to have some food splatters that left a mark. You can update your kitchen cabinets by simply adding a new coat of paint! There is no need to get all brand new cabinets when a little paint will do the trick. HGTV has a way of getting this done in just a few easy steps.

Organize the Garage

Longer days means more outdoor activities! It is easy to let the cold, dark garage go during the winter months because no one wants to stay out there and organize it. Now that it’s warmer, it’s the perfect time to get it all in order. Whether it is building a bike rack or fully de-cluttering your space, this will definitely show your house some love!

Paint the Front Door

This might not seem like a “loving your home” kind of task but trust us, it can make a big difference! The front door is one of the first things you see when you arrive at a house, but it can also be one of the most neglected parts of the house. By switching it up and adding a new color, everyone will be able to see that you love your home just by walking by.

If you need some inspiration to help you choose your new color, the DIY Network has some great options.

Window Treatments

With all that warm sun starting to come in the windows it’s a good time to give your windows a treat!  Don’t get us wrong—the sun is great… but so is a little shade. There are many options when it comes to windows.

Window treatments have been said to “make or break” a space. It all depends on the look you are going for, whether that is making the room look taller by adding colorful ceiling to floor curtains, or by simply adding some white shutters. If you want some inspiration take a look at HowToBuildIt.com.

Flowers

People give flowers to others to show their love, so why not give some to your home that you love so much! It has a great benefit to both your home and you. They’ll add a pop of color that will not only brighten up your day, but also brighten up your house in a non-permanent way. This is a good trick if you don’t want to commit to colorful house decorations. Not to mention the sweet smell that will be filling your house!

You can go for the store arranged flowers or try flower arranging on your own. If you start to see the flowers drying up, but you’re not ready to let go of the bouquet just yet, then just preserve them and put them right back in the vase! Tipnut.com has some great tips on how to dry out flowers while keeping their shape.

Your home is where your heart is, so finding ways to love your home is an important thing to do. It can be something simple like painting a door, or it can be more extensive like de-cluttering a garage. With these seven ways to love your home, showing affection is easy and fun.
