Springtime is one of the best times of year to freshen up your home. After all the holidays are over and you’ve taken the winter to hibernate and relax, it’s time to clean, disinfect, purge, and make sure everything is in proper working order. Then, spruce up your space to give it a nice, refreshing, and welcoming feel for the new sunny season.
When it comes to making your house a home, your friends here at Adrian Durban Florist, voted the best flower shop in Cincinnati, have a few tips as well as the perfect flowers to refresh and refine your kitchen, bedroom, and even your bathroom. We also recommend trading in those chemical-filled cleaning products and artificial fragrances for fresh scented blooms! After all, nature is the best way to boost your mood, too.
Refresh Your Kitchen
Deep cleaning your kitchen doesn’t have to take all day long. We’ve found a few tips to make your life a little easier as you spring clean. Remember those dust bunnies that you can’t seem to make disappear? They tend to live under your stove and refrigerator and in those hard-to-get-to nooks and crannies. If you dampen your broom, you’ll be able to pick them up no problem. Then, simply vacuum the end of your broom to make sure they leave town for good.
Refresh with Spring Flowers
Refresh your kitchen with a bouquet of fresh flowers after a deep spring clean. Add a pop of color with something that is proven to help air circulation and oxygen flow in addition to ease any seasonal depression and everyday stress. A single bloom, green plant, or lush arrangement is perfect for any kitchen decor.
- Peace Lily: A top indoor plant for air purification
- Carnations: A symbol of both luck and purity
- Tulips: Boost your mood, feel lighter and brighter, and inspire happiness and cheer
- Eucalyptus: Brings a refreshing minty yet earthy scent to your kitchen
Reorganize Your Bathroom
Reorganizing your bathroom might not sound daunting until you realize all the expired over-the-counter medicines, an overabundance of hand lotions, and towels you forget you owned. The best way to reorganize the medicine cabinet and linen closet in your bathroom is to take everything out, scrub the shelves, and thoughtfully place only the items you need back in a newly organized manner. You can also save your old towels to use as cleaning rags.
Reorganize with Spring Flowers
If placing a small bouquet or potted flower in your bathroom is out of the ordinary, spring is the perfect time to give it a try. Adding plants to your bathroom gives it a warm, colorful, and inviting feeling.
- Daffodils: The number one mood-boosting bloom that will brighten your bathroom, ease stress, and help relieve seasonal depression
- Gerbera Daisies: A beautiful flower to symbolize cheer
- Sunflowers: A bright symbol of gratitude and happiness
- Hyacinths: Bring joy with vibrant colors and a fresh fragrance
Refine Your Bedroom
Refining your bedroom often starts with your closet and wardrobe, and it often ends here, too. We’re reminding you that there is more to refining your bedroom than just purging your unwanted clothes, shoes, and accessories. Have you ever tried feng shui? Start with refining the space under your bed. Make sure that whatever is left underneath is nothing more than extra linens and pillows rather than books, papers, and other clutter. In other words, you don’t want to “sleep on your problems.”
