Seasonal cleaning doesnít have to be an expensive ordeal with these tips from Matthew Robbins, creative director of Matthew Robbins Design and blogger for Stylelist.com:

Polish old treasures. Some of those outdated items attracting cobwebs in your garage can make vibrant statements in your home. ďStart looking for things you could update with a coat of glossy paint,Ē Robbins says. Items like mismatched candlesticks can be painted a bold color and put on a mantel.

Add greenery. Whether it be a subtle fern or vibrant sunflowers, plants transform any room.

Donít forget outdoor space. Create an inviting venue by highlighting favorite shrubs or plants with lighting, Robbins suggests.

Donate. Itís a great way to declutter, Robbins says. ďIf you havenít used it in the last year, you probably wonít use it this year either.Ē
