Imagine having a really hard day at work, productive perhaps, but tiring still. The least you want to do is to go back home, try to unwind, lay down, turn on a good show, and feel like the place itself won’t let you unwind at all. Maybe it’s because of the poor lighting, maybe it’s because of too much stuff laying around. Whatever the reason may be, you need to fix that up. How are you going to relax otherwise? So, let’s get to it. Time to make your home calming living space in 5 easy steps!
1. Make Sure You Get The Important Vitamin D
We need sunlight, not just for health reasons but because it lifts us up. Ever been locked up all day? If you’ve been through 2020 you probably have, so you know as well as I how much some sun can do for your mood. So pull up those curtains and let some light in for once. Trust me, it’ll do you wonders.
2. Introduce Green Spaces Inside Your Home
You don’t need a greenhouse, but ornamental low-cost plants freshen your environment and, if chosen properly, will complement your living space, both from a design and a color standpoint. The contrast really helps to liven up your home and what better than something that’s actually alive.
3. Choose Calming Colors For Your Décor
While contrast is a good thing to have, neutral colors are just as important for your head to slow down and process a day’s worth of work. Neutral colors are easy to work with, easy on the eyes, and easy to implement in just about any kind of home, in any shape or form.
4. Clean Up And Remove Clutter
There is such a thing as background noise. Old papers, throwaway clothes, and books. The sort of stuff we leave lying about and never worry to pick up, because “what’s the harm?” Thing is, it does hamper you in a way. Cluttered living space is an unfocused one, which hurts both a working mentality and a relaxing one. With a clean living space, you are free to put your mind into it, whether it’s an important paper due yesterday or a well-deserved rest on the couch.
5. Surround Yourself With Things You Like (but in a good way)
Too much of a good thing can make you hate it sometimes, so instead of loading up the walls with posters of your favorite childhood band without any sense of décor, strategize and place objects that bring you joy all over your home. With a properly implemented background presence, these objects (be it books, discs, favorite paintings, quirky ornaments, and so on) will fuel you with good vibes 24/7. When you’re getting ready to leave for a day of work and when you’ve just arrived, and find yourself in need of a good rest.
