QUICK AND INEXPENSIVE WAYS TO UPDATE YOUR KITCHEN You probably spend a lot of time in your kitchen: cooking, eating, celebrating, chatting, etc. as life seems to happen around food and in the room where it's prepared. If it's not your favourite room in the house, give yourself a small budget and a weekend to make a few notable changes to create a happier space. Here are five ideas: 1. Paint your cabinets a trendy colour like blue or a more neutral colour like white to give your kitchen a whole new look. Note: two toned cabinets (for example white above the counters and green below) is quite trendy this year. 2. Update your light fixtures. Creating a bold focal point with a unique light fixture will give your kitchen a whole new perspective. 3. Add art to the room. Whether it's a painting on the wall or an artful pattern on the curtains, add a bit of personality to your kitchen with art. 4. Give your feet a break with luxurious, washable runners or rugs under the table, in front of the sink and anywhere else you have to stand for long periods of time. Keep the rug neutral or go bold, but focus on comfort as you'll be thankful for that in the long run. 5. Install a fancy (and functional) faucet. If you're still using the basic faucet that was there when you moved in, treat yourself to a fancy new faucet with sprayers, touchless operation or even lights.

PICKLEBALL ANYONE? At some point in the last couple of years, you've probably heard of the latest sport taking over the country - pickleball. A sport that required no skill and relatively no special equipment to start, anyone can head to a local gym or league to partake in the sport that is a mix of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. Played on a badminton-sized court (indoors or outdoors) with a paddle and a plastic ball that has holes in it, like a whiffle ball, the sport is great for singles or doubles. If you're looking to try out the sport, players say it is really easy to learn the rules and you can make the game as intense as you'd like. Start by finding an athletic pair of shoes that offer foot support and have good grip to prevent slips on the court. Check with your local gym or community center to see if they provide equipment for the sport or if you need to purchase your own paddle and ball. Paddles and balls can be purchased online or at most sporting goods stores.
