Many house owners are often fixated only on the aesthetics when they renovate. The truth is that your house strongly affects your health as well, not only your eyes. And thus, as a wise house owner, you should focus on how your renovation ideas can positively improve your health.?

Get the Right Paint Colors?

Warm colors like soft gray, light blue, light green, charcoal, creamy white, and pistachio give your mind just the right relaxed nuance without inducing sleepiness. Therefore, you’d better have them for your bathrooms. As for the bedroom, lavender, soft green, deep blue, pale blue, and soft grey can help you sleep much faster than if you have other colors.?

But how can you mix them all in harmony? The easy answer to that will be, “It depends on your taste. As long as you’re okay with a certain combination, go with it.” But if you have more budget, you should consult a professional painter instead. Start by checking a local service.

Have an Air Purifier

Unless you live close to the wilderness, then you’ll need an air purifier in your house. The quality of air around the world, specifically in big cities, is declining. According to Air Visual, India and China have the most polluted cities in the world. South Korea and the United States are the next ones on the list. And according to WHO, the harmful impacts of pollution cannot be taken for granted. Around 3.8 deaths per year are caused by overexposure to polluted air.?

Besides, allergens like pollen and dust can be detrimental to anyone who is allergic to them. If you have kids or relatives who like to visit you, save them from the trouble by having one or two air purifiers in your house.?

Invest in Healthy Kitchen Appliances

Your overall health depends heavily on your gut bacteria. According to an article on Health Harvard Edu, there are separate studies that link the role of gut microbiota to health conditions such as cancer, heart disease, cardiovascular disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. It seems like the old proverb has some truth in it after all, “You are what you eat.” Therefore, invest in decent kitchen appliances to be healthier. For instance, make a place for convection oven in your kitchen. If you’ve been frying with oil so far, consider changing your cooking method with a dry fryer. Provide extra sockets so that you can have juicers in the kitchen. Improvements like these may look small and trivial, but they can bring a significant impact on your life.?
