The year we have had shows the importance of having somewhere peaceful to work or simply just get away from the kids for a while. Our home is also the place where we come to after a busy day at work and recharge our batteries. Creating a peaceful home doesn’t come easy and definitely needs some thinking before committing, but in this article, we will go through some easy ways in which you can make your home more peaceful.
Declutter The House
Whether you have a mad busy household with kids running around, are a maximalist or just simply a little bit disorganised from the stresses of life. A cluttered home results in physical and unconscious havoc. Think of it this way, you’re running late for work and you can’t find your car keys or mobile, where are they? Well after about 20 minutes of worrying, you find them in your mountain of disorganization. This creates stress before you even walk out of the door in the morning. So, one of the best ways to create a peaceful home is to declutter. Make a rule about if you haven’t used it in the last year, it needs to go. Once you have an organised home, you will start to feel much better straight away.
Add Some Colour To Your Space
Adding colour to any room or statement wall art prints can transform an area’s mood dramatically. This could be beautiful clean white textiles in the bedroom to make it light, spacious and calm. Adding a bold statement colour to the living room will also create a beautiful family living area such as green for calmness. It can be difficult to pick a colour scheme so have a look at different colours and also check out how they can affect your mood, you don’t want a red room if you have a stressful job as this could make you more stressed. Opt for cooler colours for a relaxing feel.
Embrace The Power Of Plants
Some people like eclectic styling and some like boho, but if there is one thing that can bring any style together is having some greenery in the home. Many opt for a hiking trail on the weekend to be with nature after a stressful week, so it makes sense to have some of this nature in your home. Plants are a great way to make your colour scheme pop. Plants are also shown to help reduce the toxins in the air that helps to re-oxygenate the living area. Another great option to bring some colour to a room is to have some botanical wall art as this will be great for areas of the home that don’t produce much light.
Don’t Miss The Bedroom
One of the most important areas of any home is of course the bedroom. We do so much more than sleeping in there so it is important to have that wow factor. Whether you are giving a tour, sneaking off to read a book or even get dressed in the morning, you should be able to feel relaxed. For your bedroom, it is a good idea to add pastel colours or something that isn’t too hard on the eyes. It is also key to have colours that resonate with you as this is somewhere that you are going to be relaxing in.
