How to Freshen Your Kitchen for Spring

1) Clean Up

As with any room seasonally, start with some simple decluttering and cleaning. Remove everything from your countertops, then give them a good wipe down with a naturally-derived cleaner (choose one that’s safe for your particular type) or a simple mixture of baking soda and water.

Only put back the essentials and a few “pretty” items leaving some breathing space. Be sure they’re clean too. Even if this is the only step you get around to, your kitchen will feel so much better!

2) Bring in Greenery

Nothing says spring like plants and flowers. Do they make you happy too? Longer days means certain plants will thrive much better in your kitchen. Some of my favourites are ferns, succulents and herbs. You could also put together a terrarium.

Consider adding faux botanicals if natural sunlight is an issue, or do a mix. Do some homework to discover the best plant options for your space, and don’t forget to use pretty pots too.

If you’re looking for houseplant ideas, I suggest picking up a copy of Living Decor by Maria Colletti. It’s such a beautiful book with so many lovely projects using botanicals.

Whether it’s displaying plants, caring for plants or creative ideas for plants, this book has you covered!

3) Switch Out Your Tea Towels

Kitchen linens work hard and are often overlooked when it comes to changing them up. I like to pick up a few tea towels each season to replace those with stains and/or holes.

Spring dish towels are an easy and inexpensive way to add a bit of colour and fun to a neutral space. Look for linen or cotton-linen blends.

4) Add a Pop of Colour

If your kitchen is white or neutral like ours, the smallest addition of colour will go a long way in making it feel fresh. And, even if you don’t want to commit to colour per se, a bowl of lemons or limes will do the trick.

Other options are canisters, bowls, a new rug or even some artwork. Consider a trip to the thrift store to pick up a few items to decorate your kitchen for less.

5) Make it Smell Like Spring

Are you still burning or diffusing winter-scented candles or aromatherapy blends? Time to replace them with fresh and energizing scents like citrus, mint or soft florals.

Be sure to look for non-toxic options if you’re going the candle route and 100% natural oils for your diffuser.

Ahhh… Feels so much better, doesn’t it? It’s the simple changes to breathe new life into your kitchen that make a world of difference!

That’s why I always have a few pretty rugs in almost any room of my home. Also, adding a pop of color is definitely the thing that what will bring the lively spirit into any space. And that’s what spring is all about. :) Thanks for sharing this!
