How to Make Your House Smell Good

If you’re wondering how to make your house smell good, the answer is a simple one: keep it clean, then add an aroma diffuser to give your space a boost of added freshness—plus its own signature scent.

Your home’s scent is one of the first things that people will notice when they walk in the front door. And, to ensure that the first impression is a good one, you’ll want to take a number of important steps to keep your home smelling its best. Here’s how to do it, with helpful tips that anyone can use for a fresher smelling home.

4 Tips for Nice Smelling Home Interiors

All of us want a fresh home fragrance to greet us when we walk in the door. Whether you’re wondering how to make your room smell better or how to improve the smell of your entire home from top to bottom, these easy tips are a great place to start.

  1. Keep a regular cleaning routine

An unclean house is one of the biggest culprits for unsavory home odors. Along with your standard cleaning tasks such as regular dusting, vacuuming, and mopping, make sure that you’re also doing additional things to keep your home smelling fresh, such as taking out the trash as soon as it’s full and disinfecting commonly used surfaces.

  1. Use an aroma diffuser

Whether you go with a small tabletop diffuser or a whole-home diffuser that connects to your HVAC system, a dedicated aroma system is a fantastic way to ensure that your home always smells amazing. Take your time picking out a scent that speaks to how you want your home to feel, such as relaxing, energized, or bursting with creativity.

  1. Clean your garbage disposal

The kitchen can be a hot-bed of unwelcome odors, and that goes double for your garbage disposal. Keep it scent-free by making sure to clean it at least once a month. Put some lemon or lime slices down there with ice cubes and run it for a quick refresh, or go for a more comprehensive clean by adding in a ½ cup of baking soda followed by a ½ cup of white vinegar and plenty of hot water.

  1. Wash your pet’s stuff

Pet toys, beds, bowls, and other items can all contribute to unpleasant house smells. For your own sake—and for your pet’s sake—wash them regularly. This includes laundering pet blankets, beds, and collars, as well as washing out food dishes every single day. Tackle odors on toys too by washing plushies with ¼ cup of vinegar on the delicate cycle in your washing machine.
