5 Finishing Touches to a Clean Home
We’re back with The Low Down on Dirt. In this installment, we’ll be sharing 5 finishing touches to a clean home to really make your domicile sparkle.
These are for those special times you share with family (especially your mom), friends (especially the one who “notices” everything). Allow us to impart some of our secrets toward making your beloved home glow.
In Denmark, hygge is a sense of coziness. Even in the daytime, candles are lit when friends and family gather.
Candles add a special, warm glow that says “welcome”. As they flicker and gently illuminate the proceedings, you can almost feel your company relaxing just a little bit more.
Flameless candles are great in homes with curious little ones who may be tempted by the open flame of a traditional candle.
When company’s coming, let them know how much you appreciate their visit with the finishing touch provided by fresh cut flowers.
Even if they don’t have a beautiful scent (like roses, carnations or lilacs), they tell people you’ve gone the extra mile to set the scene for their visit.
Their freshness and beauty are an often-overlooked detail your visitors will appreciate.
3. One Just For You
You spend fully 1/3rd of your life sleeping. That makes the bed a central place which should be treated as such. Make your bed every day and once a week, change the sheets.
This is your private sanctuary, so make your bed as luxurious as possible, adding throw cushions, soft, high thread count sheets and a mattress topper that coddles you to sleep.
4. Mulled Spices
Who needs artificial air fresheners when you can mull some spices? That’s the scent of home!
To a half pot of water warming on the stove, add spices you love the smell of. Cinnamon, allspice, clove, vanilla bean and orange peel can all be combined to create a signature scent that smells like love (or something like it).
5. Thoughtful Accents
Your home may be delectably clean and beautifully furnished, but it’s the thoughtful accents which really make it the stunning refuge from the world it is.
You love your hardwood floors, but on those cold mornings, wouldn’t an accent rug make a difference? Rugs also anchor areas in a room, creating locations which invite conversation and relaxation. Be bold – – choose a Turkish kilim. Or keep the vibe cozy and nostalgic with one of today’s wool shag offerings in a warm tone.
