Of course, having a brand new kitchen is going come with a load of positive energy bouncing off the walls.  However, every room needs those special personal touches to create a happy and relaxed vibe.

ADD SOME PLANTS TO YOUR KITCHEN
Plants bring your kitchen to life and help clean the air.  Certain types are even said to bring luck.  Irish tradition recommends clover, Chinese Feng Shui values lucky bamboo, and in Hawaii, a ti plant in every corner of the home brings blessings and good fortune.

DECLUTTER
Decluttering gives you a physical way to let go of something that has been weighing you down.  Psychologically speaking, it can be an instant pick me up.  Clearing some space can positively affect your mood.

WASH YOUR WINDOWS
Natural light is a powerful healer, and most of us don’t get enough of it.  One simple way to reconnect with light is to wash your windows.  White vinegar makes an effective and inexpensive cleaner, and you can infuse it with lemon and thyme to make it smell good.

FILL A VASE WITH FLOWERS
Fresh flowers from the garden or bought from the store put in a glass vase or jug is an instant pick me up both visually and through smell.

ADD ESSENTIAL OILS TO YOUR CLEANING ROUTINE
Scent can be calming, energising or clarifying.  Rosemary is refreshing and makes a great disinfectant; tea tree oil is calming and makes a good all-purpose cleaner; and orange oil is cheerful and works well for degreasers.
