Scents of Home: 5 of the Best Smells for Every Room in Your House

Scents of Home: 5 of the Best Smells for Every Room in Your House

The aroma is a huge part of the overall feel of your home in NOTTINGHAM. Capturing the perfect scent for each room will help elevate the space and can dramatically transform your property.

While candles are great; you should consider other ways of injecting fragrance into each room. Linen sprays and oil reed diffusers are an easy way to infuse refined scents, reducing the need to have candles constantly burning.

Tea Tree for Bathrooms

Harsh cleaning products can smell pungent, meaning it can be challenging to bring your own fragrances into your bathroom.

Therefore, a powerful scent is needed to cut through the bleach products used, and leave your room smelling amazing.

Tea tree provides a crisp, fresh scent, and is powerful enough to abolish the residual bleachy smell left behind by cleaning products. An oil reed diffuser placed on top of the toilet or windowsill will drastically improve the smell of the room. Additionally, for a more subtle way to incorporate a beautiful scent into your bathroom, add a few drops of tea tree essential oil to the toilet after flushing.

If you want to take this one step further, you could develop your own cleaning product which will keep your sink, bathtub and other surfaces looking and smelling fantastic. Simply mix baking soda, tea tree oil, and liquid soap together to leave your surfaces gleaming.

When using tea tree in an en-suite bathroom, consider also using a linen spray on your bedsheets, which will help tie the room together, evoking all of the senses.

Lavender for Bedrooms

Ground-breaking? Absolutely not.

Yet there is a reason it is the first choice of many interior designers, time and time again.

Lavender has been used as a sleep aid for centuries and was traditionally prescribed for those who suffer from insomnia. Lavender is known to treat restlessness, anxiety, and nerves, and is the worst-kept secret to a great night’s sleep.

Consider candles, oil reed diffusers, and crucially, a pillow sleep spray. The scent is subtle, and particularly beautiful in the spring months, where the lavender encompasses the changing seasons.

It is recommended you carry this fragrance through to your spare rooms, so each bedroom in the home has a relaxing and cohesive scent.

Citrus for Kitchens

Cooking smells penetrate the kitchen and can be challenging to mask. Fragrances in the room can mix with the lingering smell of food so it is essential you choose a fresh, crisp scent.

The sharp scent of citrus will cut through the air, banishing the smell of last night’s dinner easily. Lighting a citrus based candle after you have cooked will help cover the smells and leave your kitchen refreshed and revitalised.

When you wake to brew your morning coffee, it is great to be welcomed by such a fresh fragrance.

Using a citrus based cleaning spray around your dustbin will also help freshen up the room – a particular problem area that can cause many issues for kitchens.

Ginger Scent in The Office

As more of us than ever now work from home, a home office has become an integral element of a well-rounded house.

You are likely spending a considerable percentage of your day in this room, so it is essential that it not only looks but smells amazing.

Ginger provides the perfect solution for the office, with properties that are known to fight fatigue. Ginger tea is excellent for stimulating the brain and increasing productivity, and the scent bouncing around your home will create the same effect.

Ginger is known to reduce feelings of lethargy and sadness, so should keep you inspired throughout your working day.

Deep Berries for the Living Room

Your living room is likely the place where your family spend most of their time. So, a careful balance is required from the scent you choose. It must be strong enough to keep the room smelling great but subtle enough to prevent overpowering.

Blackberry scents work exceptionally well for living spaces. They offer a deep and mature fragrance that will sit in the background, providing a delicate aroma for the room.

As well as candles and diffusers, be sure to use fabric sprays for your sofas and other soft furnishings. Especially if you have children or pets, fabric sprays are an excellent way to freshen up the room.

    We have received excellent service from your Long Eaton Office especially from Caroline who has been extremely helpful & a calming & knowledgeable inf...luence especially with our purchase of a new build property. We have not dealt with your estate agency before & although very stressful at times for ourselves, as our first prospective purchaser pulled out, Caroline was very helpful & approachable & contacted us regularly to keep us updated on progress. I can't recommend her highly enough. Many thanks again Caroline Best regards Liz & David

    Harry Hackett and Joely Golding at the Long Eaton branch were wonderful! They were so helpful and would come at the drop of a hat to let us into the p...roperty to view, measure up and get quotes ahead of the completion date. They even offered advice on options for inside the property, which we have taken on. Everything was super efficient and we would highly recommend them! 😊

  • Gayle

    What a long journey this house sale has been - lots of ups and downs (due to 2 failed sales - not due to Robert Ellis) ....so lots of stress. This jou...rney has defintely been made much more tolerable by the lovely relationship we have established with Joely and Holly. They have kept us well informed and always been available to update us with honest, reliable information. Joely, in the later stages of negotiations even responded, on what I know, were days off work. I have so appreciated being able to speak to the team when required.. always caring and respectful and had empathy and understanding. We have received and very professional but personal service I feel. Highly recommend.
