How many days have you spent in your home over the last 18 months without going outside? It feels like we’ll be spending more time at home in the future. It’s going to be hard to socialize as we did in the past.
When you spend more time indoors your home should be as comfortable as possible. It’s the only way you won’t be desperate to go outside every chance you get. Let’s focus on a few improvements you can make to get started.
The best window types that reduce noise level to almost zero when they’re closed are great. Spray foam insulation tends to be extremely effective too. Noise will pass through your walls unless they’re insulated properly.
If you can stop loud noises from getting inside, your ears will thank you. I doubt the sounds you hear at home will be loud enough to cause you health problems, but it’s going to prevent you from relaxing on the couch.
After working with thousands of customers the Canadian Choice office in Ottawa, ON, is filled with plants. The company was surprised by the number of homes that had beautiful plants on window sills and tables.
When you go for a walk in the woods you’ll be blown away by how good you feel. Being surrounded by green soothes our souls for some reason. Try scattering plants around your home and you’ll feel good without going outside.
Did you opt for style over comfort when you were choosing a couch? A lot of couches look great but they’re not very nice to sit on. You can eliminate the problem immediately by covering them in blankets and pillows.
I’m sure you’d appreciate a blanket and pillows on your couch even if it’s comfy. It’s great when you want to curl up to watch TV. If you choose the right colors it’s also a superb way to add life to a dull room.
The perfume industry is worth billions of dollars because people like to splash a little liquid on themselves to smell nice. Smell is our most primitive sense and our brains go crazy when we inhale lovely scents.
Lighting a scented candle is one of the easiest ways to make your home smell nice. If you turn the lights off the flickering flame helps you relax too. There is an endless amount of scents to choose from these days.
Brushing past the wall when you want to sit down at the dining room table is annoying. Walking around a coffee table before you reach the couch gets frustrating after a while. Lots of people don’t think before arranging furniture.
If you put everything in the correct place it can make your life easier. When you live in a small home it helps if you don’t have massive furniture. You can also remove a few pieces if you’ve tried to squeeze in too much.
