SMART CLEAN HOME WITH DYSON PURE COOL

Are you looking for a new way to automate your home and improve your quality of life?

Living in an apartment with 2 kids under 5 years old, and busy professions as well as ministry, requires us to be smarter in managing the house. It’s honestly hard to keep on track with the house chores and cleaning schedule, not to mention the thick dust behind the TV cabinet and window crease, which often increase the chance of my rhinitis. That is why, as a family are always on the run to find new ways to simplify and to improve our quality of life at the same time. One of them is by automating our home.

For this matter I trust Dyson for its innovative game-changing idea for the future. I heard countless reviews on some of their home appliances products, and now I get to try it myself. Yes!! Few months ago, I was invited to try their latest range – Dyson Pure Cool Tower Fan. And man…I have been using it for the past weeks and honestly I am quite impressed.

Not just another purifiers

As it names – Dyson Pure Cool Tower Fan. It is a purifier (duhhhh..) ; it removes contaminants and allergens for a cleaner environment. However, it is not just another purifiers, this appliance removes potentially toxic fumes and odours too and it also cools in summer. How cool is that?! This means we have found our long-lost house keeper for all year round.

Automatically monitors, reacts, and purifies

What’s more, the Purifier automatically monitors, reacts and purifies – then reports to your Dyson Link app so you’re kept in the loop. Woot woot!! This is seriously one of the best innovation I love about Dyson. It automates my house and it tells me the level of air quality inside the house daily. Dyson Link App could easily download via  App store or Google Play Store. Then follow the instructions to set up your machine. Once you finished with the machine set up, you will be able to see the summary of your house air quality information on the homepage. Tap on the chart to see the daily or weekly report.

The air quality level meter turned red which was an indication of low air quality level. Then, I placed the purifier onto a mouldy room, and found that the level of air quality gave me a red signal too.

Last step, let the Dyson Pure Cool do its job, to purifies/eliminates the toxic mists, fumes and odours. Check out other cool features on your app, such as, timer, night mode, oscillation, air-flow, etc.

Quick and easy filter changing

It is as easy as setting up the machine itself. It is low maintenance. It took me less than 5 minutes to assemble everything. Place the two filters around the base and lock it in place. This filter can last up to 12 months depends on the frequency of use with built-in notifications when they require replacing.

A modern kids friendly home appliances 

The first time I noticed once I finished assembling this fan was its sleek and minimalist look. It blends with my white wall and seated steady and well on the floor just like a bigger version of a sound speaker. Dyson Pure Cool is blade-less; it has no spinning blades and it is safe near children. This fact put me at ease when I leave the boys hang around it.

The only possible way to keep a free pollutant/allergen house 

Since having children, I realised how important it is to keep the cleanliness of the house. Children are very sensitive to the changes in the air quality. They are more susceptible to the viruses and bacteria in the house than adults are. It is my nightmare to have a suffering kids from any viruses or bacterias.

And I admit no matter how well I clean my house, I can’t do a better job than a HEPA filter to get rid of the 99.97% of the particles 0.3 microns in diameter. I want our nose, eyes, and lungs to get a break from pollutant and allergens at least when we are at home.

Ever since I got Dyson Pure Cool at home, my hay fever attacks lessened. Asher is sleeping well and longer during night time as well as Jared. Last but not least, all of us are more comfortable playing on the carpet floor without following sneezes.

So, if you’re thinking to keep the house fresh and healthy in order to increase your family quality of life, choose the smart way, air purifier is worth your attention. I would recommend Dyson Pure Cool to automate your home. And feel the difference.

6 TRICKS TO DECORATE YOUR ROOM ON BUDGET

Who doesn’t want to live in a “pinterest” decorated room? Huh.

But, how much will it cost me? How much effort we need to pay for this? 

Wait….decorating your room won’t be necessarily costly or time consuming. Perhaps, you only need a little tweak or good catch around the house.

As a growing family with single income, we always find ourself adjusting our lifestyle again and again. We moved houses several times, but it doesn’t mean we buy new things every now and then. We love to keep things minimal yet liveable. So here are my tips in decorating a house on budget.

6 TRICKS TO DECORATE A ROOM ON BUDGET

  1. Regular Declutter – How often do you do decluttering? I used to be a person who was very unorganized plus irresponsible to my belongings. If I can’t find things, I will straight away buy a new piece or set. I piled up so many junks around the house that will eventually become an eye-pinching wall art in my room. Till I met my organized husband, and he inspired me to be his clone. Nowadays, decluttering has become a part of my life. We do declutter every trisemester. First, the house feels light. Second, it freshen your soul. Third, ease you to find and move things around the house. Once you get cleared your house, you might find some old forgotten bits and pieces which will suit your house theme. Such as, a cute family caricature, an old newborn book journal, a traditional wooden music instrument, a handmade plate you bought overseas, etc.

  1. Move around your furniture – Every now and then, you need to re-arrange the furniture around the house to freshen up your mood. Who would ever think that changing position of your sofa or dining table could give a different vibe in the house. Do you realize that visual repetition is boring? But changes boost your interest? Most importantly, it’s my favourite zero cost hacks in decorating a house.

 

  1. Featured wall – It is so trendy nowadays. But sometimes paintings can cost much of our money and time. Another way to keep your wall on trend is by sticking a wall sticker / paper. Easy to apply on dry surface and easy to peel off without damaged. Perfect for those of you who are living in an apartment like our family. Top hack for all mums; decorate your kids wall room using duck tape/round label from officeworks. It cost less than A$5 for the entire wall in the room. 

 

  1. Frame the kids’ artwork – ha. This is obviously my favourite hack. We all know that a pretty wall art can be pricy sometimes. And definitely we need more than one wall arts to fill the house. Alright….why not skimming through your kids school artwork and find some best one which match the colour theme of the room. Next step is….. FRAME IT!! Voila… your new Picasso wall art is ready to hang. Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

 

  1. DIY – One of the thing I love to do as a stay at home mum is DIY. When the house is silent, I love to express my creativity through some art and craft. Most of the time, it cost less than the off-shelf bundles. More than that, I love how DIY bundles add a personalized touch to the room. (eg: DIY Dreamcatcher)Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

 

  1. Light it up – Invest in a good light fixtures. Light fixtures work as a vital element in decorating any room. As per the experts, the decorative lightings are the architectural jewelry pieces. So, to have the best home decoration, it is necessary to consider the shape, style, size, and color of the lights. A creative use of lighting can actually enhance any home décor project a lot. Its the hero in the room.

 

Hope you enjoy above articles. And be encouraged to start a new room decor project for your own house.

My last tip is to be creative. Stylish does not always pricy. Find small precious things in the house and make them stand out.

See you on the next post! X

10 SMALL SPACE HACKS YOU MAY NEVER CAME ACROSS BEFORE

Whether you live in a small apartment or have a tiny room in your home, it’s quite likely that you’re going to get yourself into some trouble figuring out how to make your space livable. – Shelby Wax

Our growing family lives in a 800 feet; 2 bedroom apartment. There are 3 (soon to be 4 ) living under the roof; 2 adults, 1 toddler, and 1 newborn’s on the way.

Not to brag that we have a LOT of stuffs. toys and music instruments, since my boys are musician buddies. For more than a year since we moved in, we have never felt comfortable with the space that we’re staying in. You will see stacked stuffs on every corner of the room. Or perhaps some squeezed things in between the cupboards. Trust me, the view was really unpleasant to the eyes and soul. Limited storage is mainly the only problem we could jot down on the list. But then, I realised, if we didn’t try to make things work, it won’t do any good to us, especially with the next living human addition is going to enter the house.

Thus, this year, we made a new resolution to create a livable home for the family. 

After spending 264 nights on pinterest, we came up with 10 hacks of making small spaces livable. Hope we did something right, and may inspire you to start revamping your space.

10 SMALL SPACE HACKS YOU MAY NEVER CAME ACROSS BEFORE

  1. TALL THIN LEGS – Furniture with tall thin legs are the go-to solution for the storage issues. They looks light, they don’t use up a lot space in the room, we are able to tuck away stools or extra storage baskets underneath.

  1. VINTAGE CRATE – Do you have some unused crate? Do not throw them away, store your magazine and books there. And in case you need a coffee table, it will do too.

  1. SKIP THE FLOOR LAMP – proper lighting is really needed in the room, but sometimes a floor lamp could be very burden. Instead, hang the lamp next to your bed or working table. Then, you may have more free space to work on the ground.

  1. HIDE THEM SHOES – Who love shoes? I DO!. Too many is never enough to me. I loose count on my black shoes. Duh. But, seeing them placed on along the doorway is way too heavy, plus it leaves stains on the wall too. So, why not hiding them at the back of the door and leave your doorway clean and tidy.

  1. CLEAN STATE – Visually open up your space by painting your walls white. The neutral works wonders at making a home feel bigger and brighter.

  1. MULTIFUNCTION FURNITURE – It’s all about functionality. Be smart in choosing your furniture and homewares. Pick high-tech things which covers 2-3 functions for the house. For example, I bought this bedside table/coffee table/speaker. It has Bluetooth and phone charger too. Perfect for a relaxing night in my room.

  1. COLLECTIBLE JARS – You may have no space for another boxes or baskets in your room. No worries. Collect more pretty jars in your room, and store your jewelry, cables, and stationaries in there. Other thing, these jars will add some aesthetic look to your room.

  1. EMBRACE MIRRORS – Invest on some mirrors. It will definitely adding reflective surfaces to open up a tiny space.

  1. FLOAT UP – Shelving units are great for adding some much needed organization to a home, but they can also take up quite a bit of space. Consider using floating shelves instead that let you place other furniture pieces below.

  1. STICK ON THE WALL – Great way to store your outfit master-piece is by hanging them on the wall. Make them a statement in the room.image26.jpeg

 

Motivation is a horrible leader. So, don’t wait to be motivated. be active and motivation will follow. – @crtvchurch

Above are some results of our “active response” towards the new year. We are still waiting on some deliveries and giving some finishing touch to some rooms here and there. We are extremely happy with how it turned out so far. It’s not the best compare to other houses. Yet it is livable for the whole crew of The Tjungs Squad. (well, isn’t it the end goal, is it?) Both adults and my kid are happy to stay longer in the house while creating beautiful memories here.

What about YOU?! Are you still waiting for some motivation to do your house or are you ready to make some move to make things happen?!

Full house tour blog is coming up in a few months time, predicted to be out before the 2nd baby arrives. So, stay tuned for more.
