Small Home Changes Can Improve Your Family's Health

My husband and I both suffer from allergies and asthma and, unfortunately, two of our children inherited our health problems. Living with both can be a struggle, but we take every step we can to keep our family healthy. One spring, when our seasonal allergies were especially bad, we decided to finally have our carpeting replaced with natural tile flooring and that was a great decision. Even though it seemed like we vacuumed constantly, I guess our carpets harbored more dust and mites than we ever expected! Since then, we have invested in other upgrades to improve our family's health, including antimicrobial kitchen counter tops. I enjoy helping others, so I decided to start a blog to share what we have learned about home upgrades and renovations. I plan to post on a variety of topics, so there will be something of interest to everyone!

Want To Make Your Living Room A Prime Place For Entertaining? 3 Additions To Prioritize

Entertaining comes in all shapes and sizes. It might be your dream to own a house capable of hosting massive parties with family, friends, and coworkers coming over for these events. Or, you might like the idea of low-key entertaining with your closest friends that involves spending time in the living room. Binging new television shows or watching movies may be on your list of things to do. To make this space an exceptional place for entertaining and impressing your guests, you should consider remodeling.

Put the Television in the Wall

If you regularly have people drinking at your home, things can get a little rowdy. Having a television sitting on a television stand not too far away from where people will be drinking can be a bit risky. An excellent solution is to mount the television directly into the wall. This is perfect for when you have been wanting to invest in a 4k Ultra HD and curved television for incredible visuals.

Get Dimming Recessed Lights

Recessed, dimmed lighting is ideal so you can set the mood while you are entertaining. Having to go from bright lights to nothing at all is only going to prevent your guests from being able to engage in the activities going on. But, you can have recessed light pots installed for about $150 each, and you can choose ones with dimming capabilities. This will allow you to turn the lights on a little bit when the sun is starting to go down. It will also help you illuminate the living room enough to move around, but without putting a glare on the television.

Add Laminate Flooring

When you have guests over on a regular basis and you spend time with your family in the living room almost daily, you do not want to have a flooring type that is only going to get extremely worn down. Carpet in this area could lead to a rapid decline in its overall condition. It could also require you to get professional cleaning every 6 months, as opposed to the norm of every 12 to 18 months. So, you should consider removing the carpet or hardwood flooring and put down laminate instead. This particular floor type is perfect for entertaining because it is such a durable choice and you can pick a highly customized look.
