Say “goodbye” to winter and “hello” to a refreshing spring season. After hibernating, our homes could use a good deep clean, a little reorganization, and some refinement to welcome the new season. Here at Bice’s Florist, the top floral shop in Fort Worth, we like to make sure our homes are sanitized and refreshed in a way that is earth-friendly with Mother Nature in mind. This includes some out-of-the-box ideas, DIY cleaning products, and of course, purifying and mood-boosting plants and spring flowers. Learn more below in our perfect spring cleaning guide.
Refresh Your Bathroom
While your bathroom might not be the most pleasant room to spend the afternoon in while you clean, it is necessary and feels like a breath of fresh air once you finish. We know hard-fighting chemicals and bleach cleaners get the job done, but have you ever thought of mixing distilled water with vinegar for a more eco-friendly cleaning product? Throw in the towel while you are at it, well paper towels that is, and repurpose old t-shirts and ratty hand towels you planned to get rid of. This way, you can eliminate even more trash.
Refresh with Flowers
Another earth-friendly way to make your bathroom look, smell, and feel fresh and clean this spring is by incorporating green blooming plants and small floral arrangements. Plants and flowers not only have the power to bring lovely scents into your home but also clean and purify the air!
- Eucalyptus: A refreshing plant with an earthy mint aroma
- Peace Lily: Purifies, calms, and brings serenity to your bathroom
- Tulips: Make your space feel brighter and lighter
- Carnations: A lucky and beautiful symbol of purity
Reorganize Your Bedroom
Spring cleaning your bedroom often leads us to reorganize our closet and ask that daunting question, “do I still like this shirt?” While your closet is an important part of refreshing your bedroom, you also need to remember to rearrange the items on your nightstand and check the drawers for unwanted, miscellaneous things. Drawing from the teachings of feng shui, try your best to keep the energy free-flowing around your bed and clear the space underneath as well. Make sure you are not “sleeping on your problems” or materials from work, nor are you feeling “on the move” by sleeping above your shoes and luggage.
Reorganize with Flowers
With the newly clear space on your nightstand or on top of your dresser, now is the perfect time to bring fresh flowers into your bedroom. As the most important room in your home, your bedroom should be a place where you feel happy, relaxed, and energized when you leave. Try placing some of these vibrant blooms in your space to create the perfect oasis.
- Sunflowers: Inspire warm feelings of gratitude and happiness
- Gerbera Daisies: A colorful symbol of cheerfulness
- Daffodils: The perfect mood-boosting bloom
- Hyacinths: Bring your favorite colors and scents into your bedroom
Refine Your Kitchen
After you have given your home a good scrub and reorganized some items, it is time to refine your space. When it comes to your kitchen, you want to remember to keep things simple, practical, and light while adding your personal style. If this seems “easier said than done,” try starting with your tea towels, canisters for sugar, flour, etc., and small decor that fits nicely on your counter, island, or windowsill. You can also add your personal flair with window treatments. Stick to valances and sheer curtains so that natural bright light can still fill your kitchen.
Refine with Flowers
Flowers are also the best way to perfect your kitchen. With meaning, lovely scents, and a pop of sweet color, spring flowers are a no-brainer. Choose fresh blooms that will make your kitchen feel elegant, graceful, and refined.
- Peonies: A beautiful and graceful bloom
- Sweet Peas: Sweet flower to symbolize pleasure and gratitude
- Hydrangea: Lift your mood while feeling zen and serene
- Orchids: A symbol of true beauty and refinement
From sweet-smelling blooms to uplifting arrangements and even green plants to increase oxygen flow, there is nothing better to refine your fresh and clean home with than spring flowers. Let the flower experts here at Bice’s Florist, help you choose the perfect blooms for your unique decor and springtime needs.
