Get Ready for Spring Cleaning In Your Orion Apartment


Spring cleaning is upon us and now is the perfect time to rethink our living spaces. Since the pandemic, many of us realize our apartments need to be more than a place to relax, they need to double as a home office and entertainment area. Because we are spending more time at home top home design trends point toward comfortable and cozy apartment living spaces. You are already ahead of the curve, living in comfort at the Orion.

How to Declutter and Get Ready For Spring

Clutter creeps up quickly in a home. And it can take hours to sort things you don’t need from things you want to keep. The easiest way to fight clutter is to consistently address the areas of your home where clutter has a tendency to accumulate. Keep a donation basket in a handy locale so that any unwanted or unused item can go directly into the bin, instead of being piled up somewhere, where you’ll be forced to sort it out later.

Put a “one in, one out” rule into place in your home. Before a new item comes in, an old item must go out, either in the trash or to the donation bin. This ensures there is adequate space to store the new item in your home, instead of just piling new things onto old, unused belongings.

Staple Pieces You Have to Incorporate

Organizing your living room around a staple piece is a great way to add your personal style. A soft-edged accent chair or a curved velvety couch is one way to embrace cozy and comfort. Rounded pieces like wooden side tables or even a colorful round layered rug can be an inexpensive way to revamp your living space and make it feel stylish and comfortable.

The overall message of springtime is to shake off the old to make way for the new. This mantra can apply to the cleaning products you use too! Chances are, keeping up with your current cleaning product arsenal is cutting into your household budget. Not only do most DIY cleaners cost pennies on the dollar to create, but it’s fun to experiment with making cleaning products with common cleaning supplies you might already have laying around. For example, this citrus-scented all-purpose spray uses just five ingredients and is perfect for beginners to make.


Easy Green Cleaning Hacks


The best part about using homemade products is that, more often than not, they’re a lot more eco-friendly than their store-bought counterparts. Name brand household cleaners can contain harsh chemicals and give off strong smells, which can harm small children and pets.
