After a long winter, there is nothing more exciting than bringing home an arrangement of fresh spring flowers or a vibrant green plant. Purify, brighten, uplift, and feel calm this spring with more than a day of spring cleaning. The team here at French Florist, the best flower shop in Los Angeles, loves a good deep clean and reorganization. We also love to add a finishing touch to each room in the home with a relaxing, mood-boosting, and lovely spring bloom. Read our new guide below to an earth-friendly and refreshing day of spring cleaning.
Refresh Your Bathroom
From shower curtains to shower drains, toilet bowls, and vanities, there is a lot to spring clean when it comes to your bathroom. Keep this year's spring cleaning extravaganza not only earth-friendly but easy for you, too. With household items like water and vinegar, you can create a simple and effective all-purpose cleaner. Use old t-shirts for cleaning rags instead of paper towels and disinfecting wipes. Toss your shower curtains in the laundry, even the plastic liner, and hang them to dry. Finally, before you put the vinegar away, pour some down the drain to ensure your pipes are clean and clog-free. It's as easy as that!
Refresh with Flowers
While your bathroom is all-around feeling and looking nice and clean, add the finishing touch to your refresh with colorful spring flowers and live green plants. From their air-purifying abilities to their lovely sweet scents, you can swap out the plug-ins, aerosols, and maybe even candles. Your bathroom will be the most welcoming as your eyes are met with this natural beauty.

Reorganize Your Bedroom
Did you know that decluttering your dressers, nightstand, and the space under your bed can result in a more restful night's sleep? A few guidelines of feng shui suggest keeping your shoes and luggage tucked in a closet to remove the feeling of being on the go as you sleep. You also want to keep the energy in your bedroom, especially around the place you rest, free-flowing. If you must store things under the bed, choose to store linens, blankets, and sheets over anything else.
Reorganize with Flowers
Spring represents the feeling associated with out with the old and in with the new. As we take this into consideration while reorganizing our bedroom, it seems like the perfect time to bring in a new bouquet of fresh spring flowers. Choose blooms to help make your room a beautiful, calming, inspiring, and happy sanctuary.
- Sunflowers: Spark warmth and happiness
- Gerbera Daisies: Cheerful and vibrant blooms
- Daffodils: Lift your mood for the new spring season
- Hyacinths: Perfect colors and sweet scents for any bedroom
Refine Your Kitchen
Ready, set, refine! Once you have refreshed your space with a deep clean, decluttered, and reorganized, the next step is to spruce up your space. When it comes to refining the kitchen, start by putting away spices into a designated cupboard or drawer and stashing away small appliances. You can always add a pop of color and personality with your dish towels as well as functional canisters to hold sugar, flour, or odds and ends. If you still think a little decor is necessary, go from room to room and pull from the collection you already have before purchasing more.
Refine with Flowers
If you are having a hard time figuring out which type of kitchen decor might be best for your space, go in the direction of spring flowers. An elegant arrangement in the center of your dining table or kitchen island, or displaying sweet blooms in your windowsill or in the corner on your countertop, is a beautiful way to add a pop of color and personality in a refined and graceful way.
- Peonies: Add grace and beauty to your kitchen
- Sweet Peas: A sweet symbol of pleasure and gratitude
- Hydrangea: Inspire calm feelings yet an uplifting mood
- Orchids: Symbolize elegance and refinement
