Spring cleaning is a ritual as old as the seasons themselves, but unlike your daily and weekly chores, it’s about much more than simply tidying up around the house. Spring is an opportunity to reconsider your living space and to decide what your home needs in order to become more functional, comfortable and enjoyable for you and your loved ones.
While many people spend time cleaning out their wardrobes and donating old clothing, spring is also the perfect time to focus on decluttering other areas in your home, especially in your kitchen and bathrooms. If you find yourself having trouble making cuts, a good rule of thumb is that if you haven’t used something in the last year or so, think about tossing it onto the donation pile.
Once you’ve cleared some space, think about how you could improve the individual areas where you and your loved ones spend the most time. When it comes to sprucing up the kitchen, adding a touchless faucet is one of the quickest and easiest ways to give your kitchen a fresh look and some added functionality. Touchless models like the Sensate® kitchen faucet operate by allowing you to turn the faucet on and off with the wave of your hand, helping to prevent messes and the spread of germs while also allowing you to save water.
Creating a cleaner home is also a great time think about personal cleansing and making small, impactful updates to your bathroom(s). Bidet seats are an easy, affordable addition to your existing toilet and provide an elevated cleaning experience that also allows you to reduce toilet tissue usage. Bidet seat options range from simple, manual models that require no electric power supply and install in a few minutes to models that create an extraordinary, luxurious experience with warm-water cleansing, a heated seat and warm-air drying.
Adding a contemporary medicine cabinet in your bathroom is another excellent way to declutter your space and create a more enjoyable, less stressful daily routine. Our Verdera® medicine cabinets feature adjustable glass shelves that let you customize the interior precisely to your needs, a mirrored interior, and a magnifying mirror that pulls out and slides up and down to assist with detailed grooming and makeup. The Verdera mirror also features integrated lighting to eliminate harsh shadows and hot spots for a more accurate reflection.
Another tried-and-true way of adding vitality and a splash of color to your home? Houseplants. In addition to creating visual drama and texture, houseplants clean the air by converting carbon dioxide into oxygen, which can help you feel more energized. The right houseplants for you will depend on the amount of light your home receives and the amount of time and effort you want to put into their care. There are plenty of online resources for choosing plants that suit your preferences, and even some retailers that deliver the plants right to your front door.
