3 Ways to Make your Home Healthier


There are many things in our home that can affect the quality of the air we breathe.
From the flame retardants in our sofas, to the VOCS in the paints we use. 

I have spent many hours researching the best ways to improve the air my family breathes.
You lucky things get the shortcut to all that precious info!
I'm going to give you some specific practical tips in the coming weeks, but here are a few general ones to start you off.

1. Get more plants. We breathe in what they breathe out, and vice versa, if that's not a perfect relationship I don't know what is.
I have got an indoor jungle these days. Here is a link to my blog, with some recommendations of which ones to look for.  

2. Redecorating? Hate that new paint smell? (Ugh, I hate it almost as much as new car smell) Switch to VOC free paints. 
I adore Lakeland paints.
I have used their products on my Belfast sink unit, my walls and everything else. I especially love their matt varnish as I HATE shiny paint. (Die gloss,DIE!)
 They do colour matching too, so if you have your eye on that fancy Farrow&Ball shade, you get the best of both worlds. (That's my cheeky tip of the week)
I also like Little Greene, which I used when I was pregnant for the nursery. 

3. Open your windows to let in fresh air. This one is easy, and free!
