Valentine's Day is a moment of generous love and appreciation for the people you admire.
Maybe you go out for dinner with your loved one to celebrate, or give your friends cards and candy to remind them how much you care about them.
But if your home has done so much for you, shouldn't it get some love? Of course, you may not be ready to buy a new sofa or decorate your kitchen with a new cabinet that you have been longing for since you moved in.
But it's not just about throwing a lot of money.
Give your house some friendly way-needed TLC.
Did you notice a small change? say, a mani-
You can make others feel that your home is the same.
While you may not have the time or energy to put a new coat of paint on your entire house, you can still give your home a small makeover by picking the right paint.
For example: Maybe you are tired of the blue front door and want something new.
Or your living room feels bad and the wall with a red accent can easily make it dizzy.
You will be surprised that a little bit of paint can make your house look fresh, new and beautiful.
I don't know what you want to focus on here.
Maybe the most important part of Valentine's Day is to mess up your daily life.
While you usually cook dinner at home and watch TV, on this day you may spend a night in town or find yourself dancing salsa (yes, you! ).
Just through, it's easy to shake things at home.
Remove the sofa from the wall and use your credenza as a partition for the room, go crazy!
You will be surprised that the new furniture combination will make your home feel like a brand new place.
Of course, after you push all the furniture again, you may feel that you really like the old furniture.
Don't worry, you can move everything back (
New appreciation for the fact that everything is in the right place).
We are all familiar with the thoughtful behavior of sending flowers to a special person.
Well, why not give some flowers to a special place?
So this Valentine's Day, when you buy some flowers for your lover, buy a second bouquet for your home.
Don't worry, you don't need to get the most beautiful bouquet (
Save one for your partner).
You can even divide the bouquet into several vases and place them around the house.
Put one on each of your bedside tables, one in each bathroom, one on the coffee table, maybe one in the kitchen.
If the flower matches the color inside your home, score points.
Don't worry if you don't have a collection of vases: I prefer to use mason jars (
Or a clean pasta sauce can)
Sometimes I mix it up with some old wine bottles.
Sentimental gifts like photo frames or souvenirs on your first date, make great Valentine's Day gifts --
So is your home.
Consider creating some wall art to celebrate your residence.
Maybe a photo of your home or a commissioned watercolor or crossover
Your Place and the year you bought it sewn underneath.
This may be a thoughtful way to say "thank you" to your house, as it has served you with due diligence over the years to have a roof over your head.
Another way to make your home look the best is to clean it up.
Over the years, you will definitely find some serious dust build-ups in these buildings, which may be the time to solve these problems.
Spend an afternoon this month cleaning up small places you 've never been to, such as under the refrigerator, behind the TV, or under the shelf.
I have some very cute fixtures that have never been cleaned before, but I have given them good dust and now they really shine when I turn on the lights!
Or, better yet, if you don't usually have a cleaning service, rent one this month to show love between you and your home.
So it's easy to just click a few mouse clicks or have Alexa bring someone over.
Maybe it's not a "Valentine's Day romance", but, just like your annual medical check-up and a half-yearly dentist appointment, your house needs the same care and maintenance.
Give your home some love!
You can think about getting one or one of your homes.
Maybe it's time (
You should change every six to twelve months)
Or you just need to check all the batteries in the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
You don't have to wait for something to break down in order to arrange a little preventive maintenance.
I don't know what to do here.
