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.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
