August is Romance Awareness Month, reminding people to add a little spark to their relationship. Taking time to nurture love in small ways can make a big difference in a relationship.

Life gets busy, and it’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind. As a result, you may find life and relationships growing humdrum. There are some simple ways to counteract this:

  • Show excitement when your partner comes home from work.
  • Leave a note on their car dashboard.
  • Call or text them in the middle of the day just to say that you love them.
  • Compliment your partner.
  • Designate one night each weekend as “date night.” Take turns planning it.
  • Turn a regular weeknight dinner into a candlelight dinner.

These are a few simple ideas to get you started, but the possibilities are endless. You can also nurture love by creating a romantic environment. It’s hard to feel amorous in a messy, out-of-date house. Keep your home looking fresh to pique feelings of happiness and love.

If your kitchen appliances look old and dingy, add life to them with appliance covers from Appliance Art. The company carries magnetic fridge covers and dishwasher covers to transform the look of your kitchen. Vinyl versions are also available. Both are easy to apply. There are hundreds of design options, including appliance covers with flowers, hearts, or other symbols of romance. They are easy to apply and can be removed and stored as needed for later use.
