It’s been a tradition for families to give their home a thorough clean before ringing in the New Year. For the Chinese, it signifies clearing the home of bad luck.
Decluttering and clearing your home spaces are symbolic, according to Chinese Feng Shui home design experts. Clearing your home spaces and getting rid of clutter is believed to get rid of troubles, sickness, sadness before Chinese New Year celebrations and start a new, comfortable and happy life in new year.
If you do not have a lot of time, hire professionals, make sure you include floors, shelves, windows, doors, lighting fixtures and curtains before Chinese New Year. Your hard work will payoff as you welcome the benefits of the healing positive energy flow into your home in time for Chinese New Year celebration.
Once your home is fresh and clean you should celebrate and fill it with your favourite natural aroma which is believed to attract good luck and create a festive mood during Chinese New Year celebrations. Pine or spruce branches, oranges and tangerines are traditional Chinese New Year decorations that add beautiful colours and festive aroma to your home décor. It is also a good time to visit Nunawading Homemaker HQ and find some special pieces to introduce to the home to celebrate the new year.
