Refresh Your Bedroom
If “refreshing your bed” hasn’t made its way to your spring cleaning to-do list yet, write it in! We have a few easy tips when it comes to making sure your bed fluffy, comfy, cozy, and of course clean. First, toss your pillows and comforter in the dryer to tumble on high heat in order to kill those icky dust mites. Then, while the mattress is bare, take a few seconds to vacuum away any dirt and dust that has made its way through the sheets. Finally, rotate your mattress and remake your bed. You will love looking forward to the refreshing sleep that awaits you.
Refresh with Florals
Another way to improve your sleep quality is with fresh green plants and spring blooms. Add these soft pops of color to your bedroom decor for an extra layer of peace and calm as well as happiness and cheer. With a proven ability to decrease stress, these living beauties also increase air circulation and oxygen flow, so you can breathe and sleep a little better.
- Tulips: A joyful and cheerful spring bloom
- Peace Lily: Rest peacefully with improved air circulation
- Eucalyptus: Breathe a sigh of relief with a minty, earthy fragrance
- Carnations: Brings purity and luck with a vibrant hue
Reorganize Your Kitchen
Decluttering and reorganizing is also a way to ease your stress and treat any cabin fever you might be experiencing. Make your kitchen lighter by getting rid of the kitchen gadgets and tools that proved to be less than useful over the winter and holiday seasons. To help stay on track with your New Year’s resolution of living a healthier lifestyle, after you throw out expired food, rearrange your pantry and refrigerator with the healthier choices front and center for easy reach.
Reorganize with Florals
A lovely spring flower arrangement perched on your kitchen counter or windowsill is another way to help say “goodbye” to stress and “hello” to a mood boost. Their vibrant hues and sweet scents are always a great addition to your sparkly clean kitchen. Brighten your space with these favorite spring blooms.
- Hyacinth: A joyful bloom to brighten the room

- Daffodils: The best flower to boost your mood

Refine Your Bathroom
Now that your home is clean and organized, it is time to put on the finishing refining touches. Since the bathroom is one of the smallest rooms, it’s a good idea to start here. Trade your winter scented hand soap and lotions for something light and sweet, like citrus, lavender, or other spring scents. Swap your winter towels, bathmats, and shower curtains together to create a cohesive spring look. Choose pastels or vibrant colors to welcome the warm weather and sunshine.
Refine with Florals
Another beautiful and elegant way to welcome the spring season is with an arrangement of flowers for your bathroom. Display calming and graceful blooms by your sink, on a shelf, or in a stand for added freshness and naturally elegant scents. Take a look at a few of our most loved spring blooms.
