If you love your home, pamper it! The more you take care of her, the more she will take care of you and yours. Isn’t it worth giving her an extra decorative pampering now and then? And show him that your love is unconditional.
PRESERVE IT FROM THE OUTSIDE BY TAKING OFF YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU GET HOME
Did you know that our shoes can accumulate more than 400,000 parasites, fungi, and viruses? If you want to take care of the health of your home and, with it, yours, the idea is to take off your shoes when you get home. In this sense, it is very useful to have a bench in the hall to be able to take off your shoes comfortably and change your street shoes for those to go around the house. Or, if you prefer, go barefoot, which has many benefits. If you do not have a closet where you can leave your shoes, baskets are very useful, which you can store under the bench.
VENTILATE IT AND ENJOY MORE OXYGENATED AIR
The air in the house must also be “cleaned”, in this case, of CO 2 and other invisible particles that can be harmful. And the best way to do that is to air it out for at least 10 minutes every day. When and how should we ventilate the house? The ideal thing to do in winter is to do it at noon or to take advantage of the moment when the sun shines so that the cold enters the house as little as possible, while in summer it is recommended to do it in the late afternoon.
ILLUMINATE IT WITH SUCCESS
If natural light is important, so is artificial light. And it is that lighting can make the difference between being at ease and comfortable or feeling out of place in your own home. Plan the lighting to suit your needs and the uses of the different spaces.
PROMOTES COMFORTABLE STEPS
If you do not want to have to go home as if it were an obstacle course, you must respect some comfortable steps. A house with large walkways is much more comfortable and looks larger. To move without problems, calculate to leave some areas of the passage of about 80-100 cm. Your home will save more than a few scratches or scuffs and you will enjoy a more comfortable home.
ISOLATES IT FROM NOISE AND HEAT (OR COLD) LEAKS
To do this, pay special attention to the health of your windows. According to the Institute for the Diversification and Saving of Energy (IDAE), insufficient insulation causes the loss of between 25 and 30% of heating or cooling. Check the cracks around the windows and put waterproof caulk. It can also help you install weather stripping. In addition, poor insulation also allows more noise to pass through.
DRESS YOUR WINDOWS AND GAIN COMFORT AND ELEGANCE
we are fans of well-dressed windows, whether with drapes or blinds. But beyond an aesthetic issue – curtained windows will always make a room more elegant and dressed – there is a practical issue. And it is that the curtains help to cover the spaces, making them more welcoming; They allow us to regulate the entry of light and our privacy and, in addition, they isolate us from the cold and noise from the street, especially if they are dense.
HIGHLIGHTS THE BEAUTY OF THE ORIGINAL ELEMENTS
If your apartment has original architectural elements, such as solid wood XL doors, hydraulic floors, moldings, or coffered ceilings, recover them and return your home to its majestic and unique original beauty. Priceless!
GIVE HIM A COMFORTABLE AND PROPORTIONATE SOFA
If the sofa is the king of the living room, what less than choosing it wisely! Above all, it must be comfortable. Try it without haste and in the postures that you usually do at home (if you are normally lying down, why try it sitting?). But we cannot forget either the aesthetic part: in addition to liking you, it must be proportional to space. Too small a sofa in a great room will look ridiculous. And one embedded between walls can cause a sensation of suffocation.
DECORATE IT IN A PERSONAL WAY
Pictures or prints that inspire you, family portraits, a series of travel photos, a collage … It’s your home, let your home talk about you! To make the composition look harmonious, choose a theme – here, for example, it was the trips -, the same frame or a style, such as black and white photos.
