Say “so long” to winter and a warm “hello” to a bright spring season. After hibernating in our homes, they could use a deep clean, reorganization, and a little refinement to help welcome this new season. Here at Griffins Floral Designs, the best florist in Columbus, we love refreshing and disinfecting our homes with Mother Nature in mind. With DIY cleaning products, out-of-the-box ideas, and uplifting plants and spring flowers that also help purify the air, our spring cleaning to-do list is like no other. Learn more when you read our guide for a perfect spring clean.
Refresh Your Bathroom
We know that disinfecting wipes and hard-fighting chemicals like bleach are great products for cleaning the bathroom to make it sparkle and shine. However, if you are looking for a green alternative or interested in a DIY all-purpose cleaner, try the mixture of white vinegar and water. Clogged pipes and slow shower drains are no match for a cup of distilled vinegar as well.
Refresh with Flowers
In addition to cleaning products, another way to rid some toxins and chemicals from your bathroom is to swap the air fresheners, like aerosols and plug-ins, for green plants and fresh flowers. Their natural beauty is not only a breathtaking piece of decor but also works to purify the bathroom air while offering sweet scents.
- Eucalyptus: A refreshing green plant with a minty, earthy aroma
- Peace Lily: Calms, purifies, and adds serenity to your bathroom
- Tulips: Make your space lighter and brighter
- Carnations: A lucky and wonderful symbol of purity
Reorganize Your Bedroom
If you find yourself having a hard time falling asleep at night or feeling tired as you wake up in the morning, it might be a sign that you need to declutter and reorganize your bedroom. Start with the tops of your nightstand, dresser, and any other surface that you can see. Then, turn your attention to what you are “sleeping on,” or the things you have stored underneath your bed. Feng shui experts suggest eliminating anything from underneath your bed that would make for an unpleasant dream, such as letters from an ex, materials from work, or books with heavy storylines.
Reorganize with Flowers
With your newly reorganized and zen environment, you are sure to enjoy a beautiful night’s sleep. Although your bedroom should be calm and relaxed so you can successfully recharge, it should also be the room that uplifts your mood and brings a smile to your face. We love displaying spring flowers in the bedroom to add a pop of color as well as create bright, sunny, spring feelings.
- Sunflowers: Inspire warm feelings of happiness and gratitude
- Gerbera Daisies: A vibrant symbol of cheerfulness
- Daffodils: The best mood-boosting bloom
- Hyacinths: Favorite scents and colors for your bedroom
Refine Your Kitchen
Sometimes our kitchen can feel a little small, cramped, and tight with a lot going on, from seasonal decor and cluttered countertops to appliances and gadgets. Since natural lighting is key, trade your kitchen curtains for sheer curtains or valances. This allows for the pop of color and personality without compromising the natural light streaming in from the window. Store as many kitchen tools, utensils, spices, gadgets, and small appliances as you can to make space on the counters. Then, swap some nicknacks for stylish canisters to serve a purpose, make the counters reflect your own style, and clear some space for a larger feel.
Refine with Flowers
Having a bouquet of fresh flowers in the kitchen is just as sweet, if not better, than a fresh apple pie cooling in the windowsill. Springtime blooms add a little more nature, peace, elegance, grace, and happiness to your home. So, while your counters are cleared and your dining room table is sparkling from a spring clean, add these lovely flowers to your decor.
- Peonies: A graceful and beautiful bloom
- Sweet Peas: Sweet flower to symbolize gratitude and pleasure
- Hydrangea: Lift your mood with feelings of serenity and relaxation
- Orchids: A symbol of true beauty and refinement
From uplifting arrangements to sweet-smelling blooms and wonderful green plants to help increase air circulation, there is nothing better than Mother Nature to refresh and refine your nice clean home. Let the experts here at Griffins Floral Designs, help you choose the perfect spring flowers for your springtime and decor needs.
