Maintaining a home is often not as easy as we’d like it to be. There’s a multitude of handy tips of course, but where’s the best source to find them? While you can spend a while Googling for such advice, BrightNest does a fine job of consolidating it all - meaning you can be quickly informed within a few seconds.
Like anything, maintaining your home is aided by knowing a bunch of life hacks. While completing a task such as cleaning the bathroom can take an hour or more to do properly, BrightNest can provide you advice that means you can just take five minutes and it’ll make a dramatic difference.
Starting out, the app asks you a few simple questions about the state of your home and where your interests lie. Each time you log in, it ask a few more questions for the sake of suggestions, but you can always skip those and focus on reading the articles. BrightNest gives you a synopsis of what each article is about, as well as how long the task should take to complete. A How To guide, along with an explanation as to why it’s important rounds things off.
In many ways, BrightNest is reminiscent of a cookery app, but for household tasks. It’s organized in a similar way, focusing on speed and efficiency, while also offering attractive imagery. It’s backed up by the ability to add things to To-Do lists or your calender, making it easier to arrange when you’re going to fit things in.
