Your home should be a happy place for everyone who lives there. It should be peaceful and comfortable since you should be spending a lot of time there. Here are some tips to help you make your home happy.
Get yourself some pretty cotton slip covers for your furniture. Then when they get dirty just take them off and wash them. Put them back on the furniture while they are damp and you will not need to iron them. Or you can take them off when company comes over and let your beautiful furniture show.
Keep your bed made when you are not in it. Make it as soon as you get up in the morning so your room looks nice longer during the day.
If you have draperies get the kind that are insulated to make your home cooler in summer and warmer in the winter.
Make your home smell nice with potpourri bowls set here and there. Once in awhile you need to shake up the potpourri to bring out more of the scent.
Dry air in a home can create static electricity. It can dry out your sinuses and make them uncomfortable. You will get shocked from certain objects in your home if the air is too dry. You can help keep moisture in the air with a humidifier. If you do not have a humidifier you can put pans of water on radiators or boil a little water in a pan. Keep the bathroom door ajar when you take a shower to let some of the steam escape into the home to add some moisture into the house.
Pets in your home can add comfort, entertainment and joy. A big aquarium with fish swimming around in it can be relaxing to watch. Or a bird in a cage can be a joy to listen to when they sing and fun to watch. A dog or a cat can make a home lively and be a cuddly part of the family.
House plants are good for the environment of your home. They add moisture and they help to clean the air in your home. Floor plants, table plants or hanging plants of different varieties give beauty to a home.
There are many ways to make your home warm and inviting. A warm and inviting home is a happy place where family and friends can go to relax and enjoy themselves.
