Spring is all about new vibrant blooms and the fresh feeling of a new season. Incorporating this into your home is as easy as bringing home a green plant to help purify the air or a sweet spring flower to add a pop of uplifting yet calming color to your decor. However you choose to freshen up and refine your home this spring, your friends here at City Line Florist, Trumbull’s number one flower shop, have a few tips to share. From eco-friendly and DIY cleaning hacks to the best living plants for each room in your home, spring cleaning has never been better.
Refresh Your Bathroom
When it comes to deep cleaning the shower, scrubbing the walls, tub, and the showerhead is only half the battle. Don’t forget about the dirt and grime that sticks to your shower curtains. However, this doesn’t mean you have to create more trash by throwing away the plastic liner. Simply toss both the plastic and cloth curtains in the washer! Then, hang to dry and use a towel to wipe off the excess water droplets.
Refresh with Flowers
Although the bathroom may not be the freshest room in the home, after a good spring clean and bringing in a live plant or flower, it could become your new favorite room. While the bathroom is a place for you to freshen up yourself, it deserves a little refresh itself as well. Our favorite way to add pretty spring colors, sweet scents, and increase air purification is with spring flowers and live plants.
- Eucalyptus: Add a fresh aroma of mint and pine
- Peace Lily: A serene way to purify the air
- Tulips: Bring joy, happiness, and cheer
- Carnations: Symbolizes purity and luck for the new season
Reorganize Your Bedroom
Reorganizing your bedroom might begin with reorganizing your closet. After you thought about each piece of clothing, pair of shoes, bag, accessories, etc. it’s time to rearrange them inside of your closet in a way that works for you. Depending on your lifestyle and weather patterns, you can organize your closet by color, or by putting pieces you wear most often closer to the center for easy access in the morning. If springtime means storing your winter coats and sweaters in the back of your closet, and bringing your shorts and tank tops to the front, embrace this reorganization with glee.
Reorganize with Flowers
Adding vibrant and uplifting spring flowers to your bedroom decor is the perfect way to say “goodbye” to the dreary winter and “hello” to a sunny spring. Choose the best and more beautiful blooms that will both calm and relax you while cheering you up and bringing a bright smile to your face. We love the pop of color as well as the feelings inspired by these spring flowers.
- Sunflowers: Symbolize happiness and gratitude
- Gerbera Daisies: A cheerful pop of color
- Daffodils: The perfect seasonal mood boost
- Hyacinths: Spark joy with vibrant colors and wonderful fragrance
Refine Your Kitchen
Declutter your countertops and store small appliances, spices, etc. in your cabinets and pantry. Clutter makes your room feel crowded, so this will make your kitchen appear cleaner and larger. By the same token, home decor isn’t just for the living room. Find a few favorite pieces to add to the top of your refrigerator, island, or countertops, and incorporate your own personality and unique style into your kitchen. Make sure to let in natural light as well.
Refine with Flowers
From a dining table centerpiece, windowsill display, or simply to admire on your kitchen counter, spring blooms are the perfect touch to refine your kitchen. Choose your favorite flowers to enhance your decor with more personality and lovely colors. Might we suggest a few of our favorite elegant blooms to spark some ideas?
- Peonies: A graceful symbol of beauty
- Sweet Peas: Bring pleasure and gratitude
- Hydrangea: Uplift your mood while you relax
- Orchids: A lovely symbol of refinement
From refreshing your space with a sweet scent to refining your decor with spring colors, there is nothing better than a spring flower arrangement or a green plant. Spring cleaning is great, but after the addition of a little gift from Mother Nature, you are sure to be ready to welcome spring.
