Spring Refresh!

Spring is here which means it’s time to freshen up your home and dust away those cobwebs, ready for what we hope will the better side of a rather groundhog year so far!

What better way to start the season than to have a good old fashioned clear out, and our stores here at Meridian can help you do just that!  See below for our top picks to get your home and garden spick and span and ready for a fun-filled spring/summer.


Dust away those cobwebs

A bustling family home gets used and abused at times, so give your home a little love – and disinfectant! Method Antibac All-Purpose Cleaner from Holland & Barrett cleans deep down, killing 99.9% of bacteria while leaving a beautiful aroma of wild rhubarb. Pop some of this into a Bargain Buy Spray Mop and spray and mop as you go – so simple and no need to lug a bucket around.

Add some freshness to your rooms with Puressentiel Purifying Air Spray (Holland & Barrett), and you’ll create a clean, uplifting atmosphere throughout your home without the use of synthetic chemicals. It’s always nice to switch up your laundry detergent now and again to awaken your senses, and we love this jasmine & honeysuckle fabric conditioner (Bargain Buy), it smells amazing and makes your clothes feel so soft.

Time to declutter

Now you’ve got all your surfaces cleaned and fresh-smelling, a bit of reorganising and decluttering is your next job. Kid’s bedrooms are always a nightmare when tackling the big spring clean – especially if you have teenagers! This super cool locker from WHSmith is great for any teenager’s bedroom and looks very trendy too. Sometimes simple storage is best, and WHSmith has a great range of plastic storage boxes, ideal for the home office or loft to keep your items secure and dust-free.

Even the smallest of things need reorganising, and make-up is no exception. Pick up this cute pink make-up storage basket (Bargain Buy) and pop your everyday make-up essentials in so it’s easily accessible.

Got endless amounts of magazines in the living room? Pop them in this handy basket from Wilko’s, the natural seagrass fabric gives off real boho vibes within your living space making your storage look effortlessly chic!

Home décor lift

Once things are looking tidier, it’s nice to add some fresh homely touches to your home, to lift and brighten things up. Add a personal touch to your living room with Card Factory’s personalised family tree cushion, in a neutral colour to go with any interiors.  Bring spring into your home with the scent of wild citrus with these candles (set of 2, Card Factory) and embrace the sweet-smelling aroma.

For the bedroom, why not treat yourself to a new set of fresh sheets such as this Ochre duvet set from Wilko. This beautiful design will bring a breath of fresh air to your room and make you wake up with a spring in your step.

Garden TLC

Last, but certainly not least, is outdoor space, which we hope to be using more often now warmer weather is approaching. Add some sophistication to your patio with Wilko’s pack of 2 tall planters, add these solar lights from Bargain Buy and see your outdoor space light up with a soft glow as night falls.

If you have a green thumb don’t forget the tools for the job – potter about the garden with these outdoor gardening gloves (Wilko), just what you need for your gardening chores.

After a day’s hard work in the garden, spend the evening sitting back and soaking up your surroundings, light these stunning citronella pillar candles (Wilko), to keep those pesky bugs away.
