With spring moving in and winter blues on their way out, refocusing your home’s ambiance to complement the warmer months can be as big or as small a project as you want. Regardless of how much you can and want to change things around, make sure to incorporate scent into your plan. SampleHouse has a wonderful selection of candles, but we know some people want an alternative at times. The perfect way to get the scent you want without having to dig around for a lighter is to get a diffuser! Here are 5 of our favorite reasons and places for diffusers:
1. No Flame, No Problem
Let’s face it, candles make can make some people just a smidge nervous. If you’re the type who would rather babysit the candle than enjoy the party, it might be time to transition to a diffuser. Or if you have a pet who likes to swish their happy tail dangerously close to the candle (we’re talking to you Winston!), a diffuser may save you a trip to the vet. There’s a built-in security factor with a diffuser, not to mention the huge array of scents and designs in which diffusers come. In fact, a lot of your favorite candle scents are likely available in a diffuser. Now that’s a win-win!
2. Guest Room Miracle
Diffusers are great for guest rooms and guest bathrooms. The scent emitted by a diffuser is constant but not overpowering, and some types of diffusers can cover an much larger amount of space than a candle. There’s no candle flame to worry about and it’s an easy, inexpensive way to give your guest room a little boost and make it feel really special. For extra special guests who want to know what that wonderful smell is, a diffuser makes a great gift.
3. Make It Your Own
The great thing about a diffuser is the simple science behind it. Reed diffusers absorb scent from the oil or other material they’re placed in and disperse the scent in a constant, subtle way, so you can actually adjust the scent’s intensity by adding or subtracting reeds.
4. Fill Up an Empty Space
Diffusers work very well in large, open spaces that might just be too big for a candle to handle. Whether you have a two-story foyer, playroom, media room or a large back porch, a diffuser is a great option for filling up that large space with little effort. Invest in a large reed diffuser and scent that helps the space come alive.
5. Long Live the Diffuser
Depending on the brand and size of the diffuser you take home, you’re sure to enjoy the scent for quite some time – larger diffusers can last 6-8 months or more! When it comes to staying power, candles just can’t hold… well… a candle to a diffuser. If you’re searching for the perfect scent, may we suggest the SampleHouse Signature Blend?
