The spring season is all about new and colorful blooms that inspire a fresh feeling. Incorporating spring flowers into your home is as easy as adding a green plant to help purify the bathroom or a sweet bloom to add an uplifting pop of color to your decor. However you decide to refresh and refine your space this spring, the experts here at Expressions Unlimited, Greenville’s top flower shop, have a few new tips to share. From DIY and earth-friendly cleaning hacks to picking out the best plants for each room, spring cleaning has never been brighter.
Refresh Your Bathroom
Oftentimes, when our plastic shower curtains get a little grimy and slimy, we think we have to toss it out and purchase another one. However, you can give your shower curtains some love by putting both the cloth and plastic liner in the washer. While the cloth curtain may do well in the dryer (be sure to read the label) and you can hang the plastic liner and wipe away the excess water droplets with a dry towel. This not only saves you a few dollars but eliminates some waste as well.
Refresh with Flowers
While your shower curtain is nice and clean, and maybe adds a hint of color to your bathroom, finish your refresh with live green plants and vibrant flowers. From their lovely scents and air purifying qualities, you can toss the chemical-filled aerosols, plug-ins, and even candles. While you breathe a little happier in your bathroom, you will also love admiring the natural beauty.
- Eucalyptus: Adds a refreshing aroma of pine and mint
- Peace Lily: A “zen” way to purify the bathroom air
- Tulips: Bring cheer, joy, and happiness
- Carnations: Symbolize luck and purity for the new season
Reorganize Your Bedroom
As the place you go to recharge, relax, and feel safe, your bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your home. This spring, give your bedroom the TLC it deserves while creating the best sanctuary for you to enjoy. Declutter your surfaces, reorganize your clothes, shoes, and accessories, and purge the miscellaneous items you have stored underneath the bed where you rest each night. While reorganizing your closet seems self-explanatory, make sure the items that are visible to you and stored under your bed are things that bring you peace, inspire ideal energy, and lift your mood.
Reorganize with Flowers
As you clear away the clutter, work-related items, old notes from an ex, and things you have classified as “junk,” bring in something refreshing to uplift and brighten your space. Beautiful spring flowers provide the pop of color your bedroom needs as well as calming effects. Find the perfect bloom to match your decor or to inspire a new mood to welcome the new spring season.
- Sunflowers: Symbolize gratitude and happiness
- Gerbera Daisies: A cheerful burst of color
- Daffodils: The best seasonal mood boost
- Hyacinths: Inspire joy with a wonderful fragrance and vibrant colors
Refine Your Kitchen
From storing small appliances to changing your dish towels to something seasonal, refining your kitchen does not have to cost a lot of money nor take up too much of your time. Have you ever thought of borrowing small decor items from other rooms of your home to add to your kitchen? A few repurposed items on the windowsill, island, or countertops will not only add a touch of your style and personality but help declutter the rest of your home as well.
Refine with Flowers
Spring flowers and beautiful arrangements bring joy and new life into our kitchen. We love to see these fresh blooms on the windowsill as they soak up the sun, as a luxurious centerpiece on the dining table, or on the kitchen counter to help us breathe happier and brighten the space.
- Peonies: A graceful and elegant symbol of beauty
- Sweet Peas: Bring gratitude and pleasure to your home
- Hydrangea: Relax while uplifting your mood
- Orchids: A symbol of love and refinement
From refining your decor with a burst of spring colors or refreshing your space with a sweet fragrance, there is nothing more perfect than your favorite green plant or floral arrangement. The addition of a small gift from Mother Nature after a deep spring clean will you have ready to welcome the new sunny season. Select the best blooms and plants with us here at Expressions Unlimited.
