Out with the cold winter and in with the warm spring! It is that time again to deep clean our homes after our winter “hibernation.” From decluttering and tidying up, to disinfecting and sanitizing, the team here at Carithers Flowers, voted the best floral shop in Atlanta, has a few ways to make spring cleaning this year better than ever. With eco-friendly ideas, spring blooms to boost your mood, and creative ways to revitalize your home, you do not want to miss reading our spring cleaning guide below.
Refresh Your Kitchen
Hard-to-clean items or tools that might not cross your mind, such as a knife block, are just as important to take care of as your floors and countertops. These items don’t have to be “hard to clean” either. Simply soak them in warm water with a little household bleach for about two minutes. Make sure everything is thoroughly dried before returning it to its place and utilizing it again.
Refresh with Spring Flowers
A refreshing pop of color is just what your kitchen needs to help welcome spring. We love lush green plants and wonderful spring blooms to help ease the tension and stress we have accumulated through the winter months. In addition, these gifts from Mother Nature help to purify and enhance air circulation.
- Peace Lily: A vibrant blooming plant to “spring clean” your air
- Carnations: Admire their purity and simplicity
- Tulips: Classic seasonal bloom symbolizing rebirth
- Eucalyptus: Invigorating aroma associated with positive energy
Reorganize Your Bathroom
Spring cleaning not only means scrubbing and sanitizing, but it also means tossing out the old and expired products you might have stored in your medicine cabinets. A good way to reorganize your bathroom while you deep clean, is by removing all contents from your linen closet, medicine cabinet, and even items in plain sight near the sink and on your vanity. You can then assess each item and decide to toss it, give it a new home and purpose, or put it back where it was.
Reorganize with Spring Flowers
When it comes to the ambiance of your bathroom, reorganize the way you keep it fresh, inviting, and simply beautiful. Spring is the best time to trade in those cozy candles for a lovely bouquet of blooms. Spring flowers are also a wonderful “green” alternative to air fresheners like aerosols and plug-ins.
- Daffodils: Spark joy with the number one mood-boosting flower
- Gerbera Daisies: Help you feel reenergized and rejuvenated
- Sunflowers: Radiate sunshine, happiness, and peace
- Hyacinths: Symbol of beauty, pride, and love
Refine Your Bedroom
While you spring clean, add some finishing touches to your relaxing space to inspire happiness and joy. Make sure to keep the tops of your nightstand and dresser clutter-free. Maybe this means you need to finally hang those pictures on the walls, or perhaps you need to evaluate the artwork already on your walls and ask yourself, “does this still speak to me?” As you reassess your wall space, create an elegant and grand feeling by hanging your floor-length curtains taller and wider than your windows before investing in new wall decor pieces.
Refine with Spring Flowers
Refining your bedroom doesn’t only mean hanging new pictures and clearing clutter. You can also refine your space by bringing in fresh spring flowers. A lovely spring bouquet can help create an oasis that is calming and relaxing, yet uplifting and energizing.
- Sweet Peas: Offers a blissful and sweet fragrance to refresh your bedroom
- Peonies: A welcoming symbol of prosperity, luck, and rebirth
- Hydrangea: Enjoy a peaceful and harmonious rest throughout the night
- Orchids: This symbol of refinement also helps balance our energy
spring has sprung and the seasonal flowers and green plants are blossoming. Elevate your space with a living pop of color for purification, happiness, and relaxation. Purchase your favorite mood-boosting blooms here at Carithers Flowers.
