Five Ways to Get Your House Ready For Chinese New Year
It’s that time of the year when you have to close the old and let in the new. You cannot afford to cross over with the dirt and trash in your home. Visitors will also drop by for the celebrations. Conceptualize enjoying your favourite meal in an ambient and clean environment. There is nothing that gives satisfaction than a clean and organised home with all the essentials ready for the festivities. If you’re a last time minute kind of a person, you can celebrate differently this year by preparing your house in advance. The thought of realising you do not have your favourite spices in the middle of preparing your meal is both time wasting and draining. If you are hosting, you don’t want to run up and down looking for items when the guests are already on the dining table. To save you the trouble, here are excellent ways to get your house ready for New Year.
With the blooming of flowers and the serenading of birds out there, you cannot afford to have a stuffy and dirty house especially this Chinese New Year. Spring cleaning is a great head start for the new and positive things that you wish to bring to your life in the coming year. How about preparing a checklist for the exercise?
The best approach to go about this is making one for each room. You can plan to work on the dirtiest and hidden parts of each room. Remember to work on the curtains and dust all the rugs in your home. You can take them out for some airing especially late in the afternoon when there is plenty of sunshine. If you find that there are items that you wish to keep for memories but are taking up too much space in your room, consider keeping them in a self storage facility. This Chinese New Year, enjoy 38% off on our self-storage services at only S$168/month (U.P S$270/month)! One month leases are also available during this promotional period. At Work+Store, your items will be kept in a self- storage facility where you will be granted 24/7 access and the liberty to choose a storage unit of your preferred size. Apart from removing unnecessary items from your rooms, you could also use glass cleaning agents to ensure your windows look clean and shiny. If you have flower vases, dust them and change the flowers to get ready for the celebration.
Dazzle your home with great DIY projects and change the overall look. The good news is that you don’t have to break the bank to achieve that glamorous look for your home. Simple changes here and there will do the trick for you. For instance, you can use empty red packets to form little lanterns or decorations for the celebration. You can also head down to Chinatown and shop for Chinese New Year decorations that will surely bring up the atmosphere in your house. Change up the cushion casings of your living room to red or yellow cushions to add on to the mood.

At Work+Store, storage spaces come in a range of sizes from 6 sqft to 445 sqft. Each storage unit is secured with a 24 hours access card security system and under CCTV surveillance as well.
