Homes can sometimes have a synthetic, unnatural feel to them due to the way they’re built or where they are located. New homes especially have that unlived air to them, and trying to find a way to add a more natural vibe to make it more homely and comfortable to be in can be difficult. Adding accessories has an effect, but aside from aesthetics, the products you use will also help to create a better environment inside and out. Interested to hear more? The following are five ways to give your home a more natural feel going forward.
Add Some Houseplants
There is nothing that adds a natural vibe more than plants. Choose your favorite blooms and place them in strategic places throughout your home. You can find options that will give a more tropical look and you’ll find the most beautiful small, potted fruit trees that add color and fragrance. It will involve a bit of work in looking after them but they will be sure to brighten up your space and give it a more homely feel.
Natural Cleaning Products
There are cleaning products available that use natural ingredients and these are just as effective at keeping your home clean. Traditional detergents and cleaners leave a lingering, synthetic smell and they are also not very good for the environment. There’s also the worry of allergies if you have pets or children. With natural cleaning products, you are looking after the environment while also protecting those in your home. It will definitely smell and look better, too.
Use Castor Oil
Like cleaning sprays, the products you use on your body can have an impact on your home. Using naturally made products will make you feel and smell fresh and so will your living environment. Castor oil is great for promoting natural hair growth and it delivers nourishment. It’s also beneficial for your scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, skin and nails. Natural castor oil hair growth products won’t just make you feel great, it will add to that natural feel and scent around your home too.
Letting air flow through each room is essential, even on cold days where you don’t want to open the windows. On days like these, it’s advisable to at least leave windows open for half an hour each day. A home with little air feels stuffy and lacking in life. In the summer time make the most of the warm weather by leaving doors and windows open as much as you can. Just make sure you have a fly screen to keep the pests out.
If you have a garden, you can go wild in your attempts at giving your space a more natural feel. Consider planting fruits and vegetables and go all out with hanging baskets and planters. You could also think about having a fishpond that looks great to the eye and also has that immediate visual of thriving life. A bare garden, patio, balcony or decking is such a waste of opportunity.
