After a long winter, our homes could use a little freshening up for the spring season. However, instead of using harsh chemical cleaners, paper towels, and air fresheners, let’s rethink the way we welcome this season. Your friends here at Flowers by Leslie, the best florist in Portsmouth, are sharing their favorite “Mother Nature approved” spring cleaning tips to refresh, reorganize, and refine your home. The best part is that the floral experts have also matched the perfect spring flowers for each room in your home to uplift, relax, and add a pop of color.

Refresh Your Bedroom

Spring cleaning your bedroom is more than vacuuming a rug and tidying up your wardrobe. In addition to your typical spring cleaning to-do list, add a few extra steps so you can get the most refreshing night’s sleep. While your pillowcases and sheets are tumbling in the washer and dryer, break out your vacuum’s extensions and freshen up your mattress. It is also a good idea to sprinkle some baking soda over any causes of odor or stains approximately a half-hour prior to vacuuming.

Refresh with Florals

Keep your bedroom fresh for even longer with a new spring floral arrangement or a live green plant. These uplifting and wonderful mood-boosting bursts of energy and color can bring us so much peace, joy, and happiness. Not to mention, green plants are great at purifying the air and enhancing oxygen circulation.

  • Tulips: Feel feminine, beautiful, bright, and light
  • Peace Lily: Increase oxygen flow for a peaceful sleep
  • Eucalyptus: An invigorating aroma to both relax and energize
  • Carnations: A vibrant hue full of luck and purity

Reorganize Your Kitchen

A good spring clean has more than rags, mops, and brooms. It is also the best time of year to reorganize and declutter your home, including your kitchen pantry, refrigerator, cabinets, and drawers. If you plan to remove everything from your freezer, refrigerator, and cabinets to give the inside a deep clean, mindfully replace only the items you are sure to use and toss or donate the rest. You can also reorganize your refrigerator and pantry to help you make smarter food decisions by placing the healthier choices front and center. 

Reorganize with Florals

The best combination to ease seasonal anxiety and everyday stress is a decluttered space and lovely spring blooms. These fresh flowers both brighten and elevate your kitchen decor and your mood. After a long day of cleaning, bring home a favorite floral arrangement that is perfect for your dining table or kitchen counter.

  • Hyacinth: A joyful burst of color
  • Gerbera Daisies: Rejuvenate and inspire cheerfulness
  • Daffodils: Proven to be the best bloom to lift your mood
  • Sunflowers: Incorporate sunshine and happiness into your kitchen

Refine Your Bathroom

With the change of seasons there also comes a change in seasonal hand lotions and matching soaps, and perhaps even a new seasonal shower curtain and hand towels. Refine your bathroom by removing all things dark, cold, and wintery, and replace it with light, warm, and fresh. The bathroom is the best place to start when it comes to bringing spring into your home. 

Refine with Florals

Since you are replacing and swapping seasonal items, you cannot forget a bright arrangement of spring blooms. Fresh flowers are an ideal trade for aerosol air fresheners and synthetic fragrances. They also bring a graceful, refined, and sweet beauty to your bathroom decor.

  • Peonies: A favorite bloom for love and luck
  • Hydrangea: Inspires feelings of “zen” and serenity
  • Orchids: An elegant way to refine your bathroom
  • Sweet Peas: The sweetest representation of pleasure and bliss

Finally, it is time to welcome the spring season once more. There is no better way to say “au revoir” to a cold winter than with beautiful, serene, and vibrant spring blooms. Refine and revive your space with the experts here at Flowers by Leslie. We are always happy to introduce you to a new favorite flower or plant.
