Each of people like to have an apartment of their dream, mainly if it's the first, personal place. To do that, we are buying expensive furniture and accessories, selecting favorite tones of walls, having interesting carpets.
Spring is a very nice season for all kinds of overhauls around our house. We have many more energy, days are warmer, so we might spend some hours on functions like that. If you are owning a big, personal house, you are the fortunate one. Nobody is interrupting you, possibly you have a private garden for your own.
