Creating a healthier home in a few steps!

In the midst of a fast-paced everyday life, the home you come to at the end of a long day should be a healthy surrounding where you can relax and unwind. With the increasing awareness and interest in improving the quality of life in all aspects, we have decided to address the topic of how you can make your apartment or house a healthier living space!

All of our suggestions do not require major interior changes, so anyone can implement them in their home and quickly feel a positive change.

Ensure the purity of indoor air

What will immediately make you feel more comfortable in your living space is better air quality. Although regular ventilation is recommended, in cities, especially during the heating season, we are exposed to various external toxins. The best protection against them is a professional air purifier. It is a smart investment that has become a necessity in recent years. When choosing, opt for a device that has a HEPA (High-efficiency particulate absorbing filter) as only this type is considered effective against the most dangerous particles. It is also important that the capacity of the purifier is adequate for the square footage of your apartment.

Another important thing to pay attention to if you use an air conditioner is its thorough cleaning once a year before the summer season. This prevents the accumulation of microorganisms and their dispersion into the air.

DIY natural cleaning products

Regular maintenance of hygiene is the cornerstone of a healthy living space. Vacuuming and wiping surfaces are a given, and when cleaning, it is not necessary to use heavy chemicals. Products based on alcohol, baking soda, or vinegar, which you can easily make yourself, are effective and refreshing enough, while ensuring that the fumes will not harm any family member or pets.

Regularly ventilate bathrooms to prevent the formation of mold, which is one of the biggest toxins found in homes and apartments.

Filtering tap water

Like air, water is the element we consume the most, so its quality is of great importance to health. Sometimes, due to old pipes, chlorine, or other problems in the region where you live, it is useful to filter tap water, which you can easily do by adding the tap attachment with a filter.

Say YES to minimalism

Many people realize how much easier it is to live in a space with fewer things and get rid of those we rarely or never use. The basic rule of minimalism is to ask yourself: Does a certain item serve or mean anything to you? If the answer is "no" to both, it's time to get rid of it. If you live in a smaller area, you will especially benefit from minimalism, and we also advise you to read our ideas for decorating small spaces.

Minimalistic apartment decoration is less demanding to maintain, making it a healthier space. Do not overlook the psychological factor of relief when you get rid of excess things that often just collect dust, so we recommend that your trash can become your favorite item you own.

Deep clean carpets and furniture

Several times a year, it is necessary to thoroughly clean pieces of furniture that are regularly used. For surfaces we walk or sit on, such as carpets, sofas, and chairs, it is best to hire professional help for dry or wet deep cleaning. This step will keep your furniture clean, preventing the accumulation of dust, mites, and dirt.

Introduce plants into the space

It is proven that plants can effectively remove harmful substances that form in enclosed spaces, such as formaldehyde, benzene, and ammonia. In addition, plants increase the humidity of the air, which is extremely important because dry air causes respiratory irritation, especially in sensitive individuals.

Make your home reflect you

Finally, it is important that the home you live in is adapted to your habits and values. This applies to the desired style and interior design, but also to those aspects of life that you want to improve. If you like to cook and eat healthily, you should organize your living space accordingly - create a functional and inspiring interior for the kitchen. If you want to switch off at the end of the day and relax in a quiet environment, remove all technical devices from visible areas. If you're the sporty type, create a space in the home for your fitness area where you can set up a training mat and all the necessary equipment.
