There are plenty of things you can do on the Valentine’s Day, but maybe you never thought of upgrading your home this Valentine’s Day. Maybe you are more interested in going on dates, or enjoying a fancy dinner with your partner. Well, there are many ways you can celebrate the special day, but if you’re more of a homebody, then maybe these tips would help you romance your home.
Switch up the plates
Your dinner doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive to be memorable. A simple, home-cooked dinner can be great if you have the right silverware for the occasion. This being said, it’s time to bring out all the china! Even simple foods can look twice more appetizing once you have the right tools for it.
Flowers, flowers, flowers
Flowers are essential for a good home. You can either place them in a bouquet or even, in a nice-looking vase. There is no exact spot on where you should place them, but bookshelves, windowsills, or nightstands are some of the places you might want to consider. They smell good, they look good, and they can make you feel good!
Create a ‘me-spot’
What we meant by the ‘me-spot’ is a corner in your house where you can just sit and relax. No, you don’t need to dedicate a room for it, and it doesn’t have to be big or nice. However, it has to be comfortable and can make you feel recharged. A veranda, for example, allows you to have a breath of fresh air while reading your favorite book or listening to your favorite songs.
Decorate your bedroom
Our bedroom is one of the most intimate places we know. Sometimes, we may get too comfortable in it; we forget to splurge a bit on it. You don’t have to make major changes, or paint your room pink in order to feel the romantic atmosphere. Why don’t you get some plain white linen, some colorful cushions or a new duvet? These things look simple, but they can improve your sleep as well.
Do something out of the norm
We may have plenty of candles, new coffee mugs, or unused bath products stored somewhere. But instead of sticking with the usual, you can try taking some of these things out and use them. They are, after all, not meant to be kept – they are meant to be used. Spark joy by do little things that you won’t normally do! Another thing you can do: use pretty containers instead of boring ones! They make any task more fun to do and they’re functional as well.
Love the memories
Sometimes we are so busy, we forget to spend time to look back and appreciate the people who have shown us love and whom we love. You can send them a quick message to thank them, or you can print photos of them and display them around the house, at your workplace, or even inside your wallet or on your phone. If you’re married, this can also help you to avoid unwanted advances. Another bonus point: your partner would love to see them! There is no better feeling than knowing someone you love is proud to have you and is not embarrassed of showing you off.
