Let’s be frank. Kitchens look great, but bins often smell. And you may have the most beautiful fitted wardrobe – but if your insoles whiff, it’s hard to feel zen.
For furniture manufacturers, these are the realities of life worth paying attention to. Creating tailored solutions for living, is now more than simply storage and function, ensuring user experiences continue to deliver beyond fitting is part of a holistic approach to design. After all, a new kitchen, bedroom, or bathroom is an investment, with experience part of the ROI.
As a manufacturer or designer, understanding customer needs
is being one step ahead of those that don’t.
The importance of clean air is high on the agenda right now, unpleasant odours always were. This is why Master Perfumer Lorenzo Dante Ferro was the go-to guru for our smart tech partners. Check Up are innovators, so they collaborated to create 6 blends of natural essence, created for kitchen, bedroom, and working environments.
If you are designing tailored kitchen, bedroom, living or home office spaces – without considering air quality and aroma, then you are missing an opportunity to really improve your clients experience.
Kitchen bins and waste cabinets cope with a multitude of odour, and bacteria can multiply with impressive speed. With ionization and ozonisation dealing with pollutants, the kitchen is improved with lemon and vanilla based blends. Antiviral, antibacterial and a wellbeing boost.
Bedrooms, fitted wardrobes, and walk-in closets are ideal places for two evocative scent blends. Scents that remind us of clean fresh linen, and the light floral aroma that reminds us of talcum powder. Research shows that this is a smell that connects emotions and memories. Perfect choices for the boudoir.
And for the living space and office, two blends of thematic notes. Sandalwood, rosewood cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves share anti-micro bacterial qualities and combine to boost mood, increase alertness, and reduce stress. For a sweet and earthy boost, a fusion of juniper, fern, blueberry essential oils unite antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Fragrance can be customised for individual orders. Kitchen and bedroom furniture must appeal to the senses, and for the first time, using smart tech means you can add olfactory pleasure to the repertoire.
Sounds good already, but did we mention the built-in air quality sensor, the smart app control, or super easy installation?
Clean air is the best and most natural wellbeing booster, but in a home and office setting, we really benefit from top-notch innovation.
