Good article, thank you! But it’s not a secret that luxury, expensive homes attract more attention, as they potentially have more valuable items that can be stolen. Burglar proof doors and high fence can increase the safety and security of your house. You should also consider installing video surveillance cameras. It’s recommended to have 3-4 cameras watching your door, front lawn and backyard. Something that is visually obvious that displays security presence greatly deter criminals from targeting the property.

I like the idea of putting some plants all over the house! Not only do they decorate the room and give a cared-for look to it, but it also improves the air quality in your home. Some plants can even remove hazardous toxins from the air. So, by putting some plants all over the house you get the natural air freshener.
