Summary, etc.:
"Simple, practical advice on how to design your home for health and happiness. With indoor air pollution now worse than ever, and more of us spending more time in our own homes, discover how to create calm, social and comfortable spaces by making small changes to every room. Design a Healthy Home breaks down the complex subject of sustainable, biophilic design into specific subjects, including lighting, air quality, acoustics, temperature, colour, pattern, texture and plants. 100 tried and tested research-based ideas support our health and wellbeing in even the smallest of spaces. Optimise lighting in your home by using reflective surfaces for a brighter space; follow a ventilation checklist to replenish the air in your home and remove pollutants; or unlock the powers of a tech-free bedroom for a better night's sleep. Leading sustainability architect Oliver Heath has devised each practical solution with implementation in mind so that regardless of your budget (or if you have any money to spend at all), if you rent or own your property, Design a Healthy Home contains creative ideas that are easy to understand, and solutions that are stylish, fun and affordable to implement"--Publisher's description.
