What’s Compromising The Comfort Of Your Home?

Our homes are many things. They’re our shelter from the elements, places to create memories, and, simply, a place to lay our head at night, and be at ease and in comfort. Sometimes, however, the comfort level of our house isn’t quite as high as we’d like or expect it to be. The good news is that it’s always possible to nudge our comfort levels in the right direction, providing we can locate what, exactly, is bringing those comfort levels down in the first place. Below, we take a look at four of the more common issues that affect UK homes.


Too Hot, Too Cold

Everything can look good on the surface, but comfort has to run deeper than just the surface level. They need to be in tune with our sense, and what we feel. If our house is too hot or too cold, then we’re always going to be slightly uncomfortable. Of the two, being a little too cold is worse, especially in the UK (does anyone ever feel “too hot” in the UK?). If your home is always chilly, take steps to give the temperature a boost. Replacing your insulation, letting in as much sunlight as possible, and loading up the home with blankets and other warming materials should do the trick.

Behind the Walls

You’d like to think that you know the names of all the beings that are living under your roof, but this isn’t always the case. Sometimes, there’s you, your family, and your pets -- and then guests that you can feel, sense, but not always see. If you have a rodent or insect problem in your house, then it doesn’t matter how well designed or otherwise comfortable it may be, you’re not going to feel at ease. At the first signs of infestation, work with a company that offers pest control services, and take care of the issue. You’ll find that it’s much easier to fall into the deep relaxation that your home provides when you know there are no creepy crawlies living in the shadows.

Clinical Waiting Room

Some people go too big on comfort, ignoring decor; others go too big on style, ignoring comfort. Both bring their problems, but it’s probably the “all style, no comfort” option that does the most damage. If your home has an overly clinical feel, then look at making your house a bit “homier.” You don’t have all guests all the time; there’s no-one to impress. Make the space more livable -- you can still have a stylish home!

Overflowing Items

While a home that’s overly minimalist will present its problems, so will the opposite, which is a home that is anti-minimalist. It’s hard to fall into a relaxing state of mind if there is clutter everywhere. Even if we think that it’s no problem, our mind will be working away, behind the scenes, trying to process the mess -- and when it’s doing this, it means that it can’t relax. Keep things cleared away, and your home will be more comfortable.
