Blueair Air Purifiers: Marrying Functionality and Style

Posted by Ashley on January 9th, 2009

There’s just something about an air purifier and home décor that often doesn’t mix.

My mom, an avid decorator, has been navigating this issue for years now, ever since my dad began using an air cleaner in their bedroom to help control his asthma symptoms at night. On my visits home, I’d notice that the air purifier was never in plain sight in their traditionally decorated bedroom. Sometimes it was covered with a pretty piece of linen and made into a makeshift table until it needed to be turned on. Other times, it was conveniently stored behind an armoire or put back in the box and pushed into the closet by day. Anything to get that ugly piece of machinery out of sight!

What’s my point? No matter what your decorating style is, a big bulky air purifier in a less-than-desirable hue can quickly put a damper on any room’s décor.

Taking note of this problem, the folks at Blueair offer a nice switch for those of you who, like my mom, want to maintain your beautiful room décor while reaping the health benefits of a powerful air purifier. Aside from delivering effective allergen and particle filtration, models in the award-winning Blueair air purifier series feature streamlined designs that are meant to blend in with almost any décor and cut down on those “Gosh, that thing is ugly!” reactions.

Blueair Airpod PinkMy favorite in the series is the Blueair AirPod Personal Air Purifier. Although this model isn’t meant to cover an entire room, just a personal-size space of about 30 sq. ft., it comes in 4 eye-popping designs that can actually stand out as funky pieces of art all by themselves. Its compact size is perfect for a nightstand, a countertop, or a desk.

Blueair Eco10 Air PurifierOther offerings like the popular Blueair 501 and the new Blueair ECO10 whole room air purifiers boast sleek, neutral-toned outer casings that won’t rival the existing colors and design elements of your room.

Most importantly, each Blueair unit includes patented filtration technology and no-hassle controls that will help you create cleaner, more breathable air that won’t exacerbate your allergy and asthma symptoms. All models are equipped with a special HEPASilent filter system, which combines both mechanical and electrostatic filtration media to remove 99.97% of particles as small as 0.1 micron. This is a significant improvement over many other traditional HEPA units that can only remove particles as small as 0.3 microns. Other perks like energy efficient operation and a higher Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) make Blueair units as economical as they are dependable. Go find one that fits your style!
