A New Home Smell For An Old House

Interior design isn’t only about looking great. To cover every base, your house has to smell the part too. No one wants to be the family in the neighbourhood whose home is known for how it smells. Anyway, dirty air is bad for your health as well as the environment. Seen as you’re an eco-warrior with a penchant for your well-being, it’s time to take scents and smells serious. These are the hacks which will make your old home smell brand new.




Open A Window


Anyone who thinks they have to turn to candles and air fresheners is wrong. The easiest and most effective way is to open a window in the autumn. Thanks to the cold weather, the air is fresher and cleaner. So, the wind should whip through the house and circulate fresh oxygen from the kitchen to the attic. Apart from smelling great, the house should feel better. Because of the higher O2 levels, your whole body will benefit and not just the home.


Light A Candle


Should the breeze get too cold, there are candles. Just light a handful of wicks and let the aromas from the candles waft throughout the house. What a delightfully basic and useful hack! Of course, the candles should reflect the smells which you and your family find pleasant. At the moment, vanilla extract is very popular, but the choice is yours and yours alone. Additionally, candles need replacing on a regular basis as they burn out.




Get An Air Freshener


Nowadays, air fresheners or diffusers are advanced enough release a spray to top up the fragrance. So, you don’t even need to walk around every hour with a handheld aerosol can. Just plug it into a socket and let the diffuser do the rest. There are a couple of hitches. Firstly, a little freshener may not be big enough to impact the whole house. In this case, an oil diffuser for a large space or a commercial air freshener is an excellent investment. Secondly, some manufacturers don’t produce sprays which are powerful enough to linger for hours. Always research the brand before heading to the checkout. A diffuser could cost you a lot of money if you do not research first.


Cook


Not everyone wants their home to smell like a waiting room in a doctor’s surgery. Some people prefer the natural smells and aromas which drift in and out of an average house. A prime example is the smell of food which is on the stove. Garlic and onions may not sound appealing, but they smell as good as they taste. Cooking is one way to let the fragrance waft into every room in the house as long as there are zero blockages. So, if the doors are closed, open them and let the smell of tonight’s dinner get the taste buds salivating. Just be sure to clean up afterwards, or else the house will stink of stale food. Baking is also a good option to get your house smelling good.

Last but not least, fresh coffee is just as nice smelling as food. By roasting coffee beans every morning, you can get your caffeine hit while topping up the air.
