Home Scents

One of the first things you notice when you step into a home is the smells in it. Considering how smell is one of the more powerful senses, presenting yourself and your guests with pleasing and appropriate aromas is an important task. Make your home feel and smell welcoming by trying these ideas for home scents in your apartment here at Liv Avenida in Chandler, AZ.


Clean. A few weeks ago we mentioned that cleaning your apartment can help you relax for a break. Keeping it clean is also important for getting rid of bad smells so good ones can come in! So put dirty clothes in laundry baskets away from living areas, get rid of old food, vacuum or sweep, and mop floors. Open your windows while you’re at it so you can encourage the fresh air to remove stale scents.


Light a scented candle. This is one of the easiest and most common ways to bring sweet smells to your home. All you need to do is find a smell you love, buy the candle, and light it!

Candles are also great for changing the mood of a room, especially for making a setting more intimate. So when choosing your scent, consider how it may affect the experience you or your guests will have in the room the candle will go in.


Try a diffuser. If you’ve never tried one before, this could revolutionize the way you keep your apartment smelling sweet all day long. These are great because you can set them up once and forget about them until you need to refill them. You can use diffusers for different purposes, so research the various diffuser methods and find one that works for what you want to get out of it. Then you can buy all types of diffusers online once you find something that works for you.
