10 tips from the experts to improve the safety of the house

      I greet you again dear readers! Today let’s talk about safety and comfort in our house. There is no doubt, safety is one of the most important things should have a room, especially if children live in it. So, experts suggest a few simple changes for a more comfortable interior. A big advantage is that the products needed for this change can be found anywhere at an affordable price. But you shouldn’t forget to:
     - aspire to perfection! Don’t buy some thing just because it is cheap, if you don’t really like it. After a while you won’t know how to get rid of it.
    - ask if you may test an object before buying it. This is the best way for choosing home décor.

               So, let’s return to those 10 tips mentioned above:
  1. Install light bulbs in all dark areas used for night work;
  2. Use shining light bulbs anywhere, this will facilitate your works. Today there are several light bulb varieties including incandescent, fluorescent, and LED;
  3. For greater convenience, install lights in wardrobes and adjustable shelves;
  4. Install switches that regulate the brightness, it can illuminate only certain areas of the house with what intensity you want;
  5. Install handles on all doors in the house at the same height as your hands;

  7. Provide all carpets and rugs with double adhesive tape;
  8. Put reflective tape (non-slip) on all stairs without carpet;
  9. Install handrails on each side of the stairs, both inside and outside;

  1. I like the idea of a bench near the entrance to put groceries on but how do you do that in an apartment hallway? Has anyone found a solution to this problem?

    1. Hi Deb! I like your question, it's very good. In this case I would replace the bench with a small cylindrical stool with wheels... i'd like if it also would have inside space for keeping some things.
