Home is where the heart is, but did you know that the things you have in your home can actually make you happier? There are thousands of appliances on the market designed to make life a little bit easier and bring some extra joy to your days, but it can be hard to decide on the one that’s right for you. While material goods aren’t the key to happiness, there’s no need to make life any harder than it is – so treat yourself to a new appliance today. If you need a little help making up your mind, check out these home appliances that might make you happier:


Is there anything more satisfying than fresh, warm clothes that come straight out of a dryer? If you love the smell of laundry and hate waiting days for your clothes to dry on an airer, then a dryer could spark joy in your day-to-day routines. However, if you already have a dryer that isn’t working right, then maybe you should look into buying a replacement dryer belt before you invest in a new machine. Either way, you’ll be able to enjoy bed sheets and towels that feel soft and fresh against your skin.

Toastie maker

While not an essential item, a toastie maker can bring you a lot of joy around lunchtime. If you love going to cafes and enjoy a hot sandwich with cheese, treat yourself to a way of making toasties every day. Relatively inexpensive, you can pick up one of these handy gadgets from most kitchen shops. And don’t forget, you don’t need to use the same old cheese every time you make a toastie. Experiment with different types of cheddar, brie, and mozzarella.

Rice cooker

A rice cooker is an absolute must for anyone who enjoys Asian cuisines. From sticky rice to healthy brown rice, the right rice cooker can whip up the perfect bowl in minutes. Instead of struggling with your pot boiling over and grains sticking to the bottom of your pan, you’ll be able to enjoy perfectly cooked rice time and time again. Depending on the model you choose, you’ll be able to make more than just rice in your cooker. Some people also make cakes, omelets, and stews with their rice cooker – the sky’s the limit!

Cordless vacuum 

Very few people enjoy vacuuming, but a cordless upright vacuum can make your life a lot easier. Instead of dragging a heavy vacuum out of the cupboard, your upright vacuum will always be within reach, allowing you to take care of crumbs and messes as soon as they happen. You won’t have to spend hours taking care of the whole house anymore, because you’ll maintain your carpets as and when they need cleaning up.

Bottle sterilizer

Popular amongst new parents, a bottle sterilizer can keep your little ones happy and healthy, but it has another purpose as well. If you’re a fan of making your own preserves and ferments, a sterilizer can help you to make sure your containers are clean and ready for use.
