Everyone is different and their homes will all have different needs and priorities.  But from what people say, the biggest issues revolve around things feeling fresh and clean.  However, if you enjoy living in a dirty dark cave, this post is probably not for you.

People thrive where light abides.  So, as it was once said, "let there be light!"  Rooms can come to life with the simple addition of more lighting.  There are many options here including buying some low cost floor, table or track lighting.  If you're ready for something a little bigger and brighter, talk to us installing skylights.  That's an incredible option that will bring daylight and moon glow into your home- increasing the light, adding freshness and a welcoming ambiance.

Next on my list, because it's so multi-functional, is Eucalyptus Oil Spray. This spray is a God-send as it leaves a refreshing aroma while killing germs and can even be added to your bath, shower or sauna for all the health benefits!  For the health benefits, check out this article on the secrets to a healthy body and glowing skin.

Since we're cleaning the air and brightening things up, let's add some flora and fauna! Indoor plants clean the air as they absorb the bad stuff and release clean oxygen for you and the ones you love.  They enrich the environment with life and bring color contrast to all corners of the home. Be sure to read labels for proper care and watering! For those without a green thumb, you can opt for succulents and air plants; even build your own terrarium!

Sweat is one of the best ways to detox our insides and also provides us with beautiful, healthy skin. Of course, we all perspire outdoors, but indoors, you have the clothing (or not) option and can add the essential oils of your choosing while detoxing at high or medium temperatures.  Even add steam if you'd like!  These additions aren't as pricey as you may think, so give it a try!

Lastly, for peace of mind, get your furniture Built in's are a classic home feature and will not only reduce your clutter, but also up the resale value of your home in the future!  They can be made to suit most any style of home and once they're in, you'll be so happy you did it.
