A nightmare house is a house that doesn’t feel comfortable or cosy. It’s a place that doesn’t work for your health, may it be mental or physical. You need to remember that your home is your sanctuary. Consequently, a nightmare home is doing nothing for you. It is actively keeping you from resting properly. Whether it is stressing you out, making your ill, or simply disturbing the comfort you deserve, there should be no reason for you to stick with its problems. Here are four essential steps to tackle your nightmare home and turn it into a health paradise.
No More Cold Winters
Who likes to be cold in winter? Even when it is snowing outside, you certainly don’t want to feel the cold breeze indoors too. Or if you can’t imagine the horrors of a cold winter anymore – it can be difficult when the summer months are nearly there – just picture yourself trying to sleep at night in a hot house that won’t cool down. If there’s one thing that you want to control in your home, it’s the temperature. That doesn’t mean that you should install temperature sensors everywhere. Instead, it’s about finding insulation solutions that can help you to improve the situation. In most cases, when homeowners think of insulation, they consider changing the windows. However, you can plan an affordable DIY roof insulation that will be more effective in only a weekend. So it’s worth thinking about it!
Get Rid Of Bacteria Traps
Bacterial growth is never a topic that homeowners enjoy to talk about. However, the presence of bacteria is inevitable, and consequently it’s something that you need to be aware of. This starts by teaching the kids to wash their hands after going to the toilet and can end with a bathroom revamp project if you’re struggling with mould patches. Mould growth can be difficult to clean and sometimes it’s easier to get rid of the old bathroom equipment to start with something fresh. The key, when you redo the bathroom, is to address the areas that are the most likely to be damp or to retain moisture.
Empty Those Cupboards
Did you know that one-third of children under 10 eat junk food every day? The prospect is properly terrifying when you think about the impact of junk food on the body: obesity, diabetes, slow development, etc. This isn’t anything that a caring parent would like to inflict upon their children. Additionally, it isn’t anything that you want for yourself either. While junk food can be appealing as it is synonymous with quick and tasty, it’s important that you give your body a fighting chance. In other words, keeping only healthy food in your home is key to look after your health. That means it’s time to get rid of any pack of biscuits, crisps and processed fatty meals that you have in your cupboards.
Make Some Breathing Space
Last, but not least, is the importance of space in your home. With British homes being incredibly small, it is important to master the rules of organisation. The best way to do so is to declutter your home by getting rid of everything that you don’t need, use or want. It may sound simple but decluttering is a process that will gradually make your home feel more relaxing and peaceful.
