7 Ideas To Help You Freshen Up Your Home

At this time of year, it’s safe to say that we can all get a little bit tired. We’re waiting for winter to end, for the weather to warm up, and for the days to get that little bit brighter too. And when you’re waiting for this to happen, it can really feel like you’re waiting forever. At the same time, it really does start to impact on your mood. And not only can this make you feel physically tired, but you may also find that it makes you restless. You can get bored with your usual routines, how you spend your free time, and even with you home - and when that’s the case, you’re going to want to take action.

You should find that working to freshen up your home can help. Because when it’s cold and dark and depressing outside, you can really light up your life with your home itself. If you haven’t had a refresh in awhile, then this is definitely going to be something that you could benefit from as well as enjoy doing. And the best part is, that you don’t have to spend an awful lot of money to do it. Some of these ideas are going to be really affordable too. So, if you’re itching to make a change and really brighten up your life, let’s look at seven ideas that can help you to freshen up your home in the process.

Change The Furniture Around

First of all, you’re going to want to think about the way your current furniture is presented. Because when you’ve had it the exact same for a long period of time, it will start to look tired. And it really can be a simple solution to freshening up the space. By moving everything around and even changing pieces between rooms too, you could find that your home gets the new lease of life that you’ve been looking for.

Declutter

At the same time, if your home is full of clutter, then it’s going to impact on how you feel. Your mind is likely to feel very cluttered too. So, a good declutter is going to be in order. By getting rid of anything that you no longer need or use, or donating it to charity, you’re going to be able to free up some space and make sure that everything is much more organized too. This always helps your home to feel fresh.





Paint A Wall

Sometimes, you just need to bring a bit of color into your home. But to paint the entire place, you’re looking at a big (and sometimes expensive) job. So don’t do that, just pick one wall instead. By working in an accent wall, not only is it a really fun feature, but it allows you to add some color and life in a really small way.

Replace The Soft Furnishings

But that’s not the only option you have to work in color. A really simple and effective way to brighten up your home is to work with soft furnishings. With curtains, cushions, rugs and more, you can really change the look of a room. it’s also a simple way to bring in small pops of color too.

Upcycle Your Furniture


If you’re starting to think that your old furniture has seen better days, and you want it to look and feel a bit more in line with what you’re trying to create, then why not upcycle it? By giving it a new lease of life (and a bit of paint), you should find that you’re able to create a better look for the space, and in an affordable way.




Invest In New Pieces

Sometimes, there won’t be much that you can do for your old furniture. And if you’ve managed to save on just about anything else, then you’ll definitely want to think about investing in other ways. And that will be to invest in new pieces. Not only may you want to improve your bed but you may also want to upgrade the dining table. And by bringing in only a few things new, you’re still doing it cost-effectively.

Focus On The Atmosphere

Finally, you’re going to want to work on the overall look and feel of your home. Open up those curtains, let in some more light, light some candles and play some music. These are all very small touches, but they can also go along way. By focusing on the atmosphere, you’ll be surprised by how you can change how you feel about your home.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
