Spring is in the air and it is National Cleaning Week. This is a great time of year to get a fresh start and make your beautiful home shine and sparkle! Not only will cleaning your home make it look good for you, your family and any invited guests, but getting a deep clean in your home makes it safer for you to live in it because you can breathe in fresh clean air, reduce allergens or bacteria in your home and avoid tripping over items that may be in your way and causing injuries. National cleaning week also gets us removing items we no longer need from our home and in a sense gets us in an organizing frame of mind. Take a look at some great facts offered in the following infographic from Golden Shine Cleaning on the impact of who does what in a home and how you can use green cleaning techniques for better cleaning.

Every homeowner seems to have ideas in their head about what projects they would like to improve their home. The ideas are endless and vision of “what could be” makes us happy in our dreamlike state. Then reality hits.
The woman wants a new kitchen. She also hates the carpet in the bathroom. The man wants a “man cave” big screen TV or theater room. The hot water is not hot anymore and the hot water heater may need to be replaced. The kids want a pool. The budget is tight and you can’t afford everything. Choices need to be made.

What do you want your front entrance experience to be or say about your when guests come to visit? Your entrance tells those visiting a lot about you. Some like a particular kind of door or door color, some welcome their guests with welcome mats, some say a hen is in the house with a wreath on the door, at least that is what a male friend of mine said to me once. It was kind of funny and sweet! Some use potters and planters to say hello to those visiting with blooms or green bushes to give a softer look to a front entrance. Some even have sitting areas for their guests or maybe a package needs to be dropped off and a bench is a good place to leave it. Whatever you style, let your entrance way make a grand impression, for it will be the first impression you give your visitors. Some may even like a king’s entrance. Let us know what your entrance way says about you by sharing your thoughts on the HomeZada Facebook page or the HomeZada Pinterest page. We would love to hear from you.
