Want a room by room guide to creating your healthy home?

If you want to design your home so it supports your health and well-being, start by understanding key tips and strategies for each room.

Hello, and welcome to Episode 9 of Season 10. I bring Kate Hamblet back this week, and we go into more detail about creating a healthy home, looking at your home and project room-by-room. If you haven’t heard last week’s episode, I introduced Kate there, so make sure you check that episode out as well.

Kate is an architect with her own business, Balanced Architecture, and she’s a specialist in how our homes can be designed to support our health and wellbeing, so, let’s dive in.


In this podcast episode, we welcome Kate Hamblet back. Kate was on last week’s episode, discussing how to create a home that supports your health and well-being.

This week, she takes us through some key spaces and rooms in your home, and how to design them so they improve your lifestyle, and make your home a healthy one.

Kate is owner and architect at Balanced Architecture, and she’s a licensed architect and sustainability expert.

(We met Kate in our episode last week, so if you haven’t listened to it, check it out now).

Kate also is the architectural force behind the fantastic online business and resource, “Balanced Home, Balanced Life”, where she teaches homeowners everything she knows about creating healthy homes of their own.

Kate also has her own online course “Designed for Wellness” to help you create your own healthy home, as well as packaged services for you to get advice and architectural support along your journey.

Kate says on her own website ...

“I started on the path of wellness design in 2015 and haven't looked back. When I first went back to work after having my son in 2014, the struggle to manage it all definitely hit me hard. There was stress at work, stress at home, minimal sleep, and so much to do! I barely made my way through that first year, and I knew something needed to change. I needed to find calm in my life as a working mom.

Since I wasn't able to do too much about the stress at work, I decided to look at what was causing my stress at home. And then I realized that the house I was coming home to was not set up for providing wellness. It was actually hindering my and my family's health and happiness.

I went to work making small adjustments to my home that had a big impact on our health and wellness. Within a few months I was seeing changes in my mood. I was eating better. I was getting a better night's sleep. I was more productive at work.

And most importantly, the time I spent with my family improved dramatically. Creating a home that promoted wellness was a life saver for my happiness, my relationships and my sanity!”

With well over a decade of architectural design experience, Kate has the expertise to guide families toward the creation of a home they will fall in love with, all while keeping them safe and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

If you’re planning your renovation or new build, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and confused about the best way forward.
