Your home is the place where you escape from the day to day hustle and bustle of everyday life, so it should evoke a calm and serene atmosphere which helps you to relax and recharge after a busy day. However, your home’s ability to do this is so often overlooked and many people are left with a home space which is draining, rather than relaxing.

Your home either nurtures you or drains you of energy and can actually leave you feeling exhausted. In today’s world, it is more important now than ever that we all have space to relax and unwind. No matter your design aesthetic or space, here are 3 top tips for creating a peaceful and relaxing home.

Get Rid Of Clutter

Living in amongst clutter and disarray can have huge impacts on your mental wellbeing, without even realising it. There are very few things which create mental unease, but clutter is one of them. If you’re sleeping in a room full of clutter or sitting in a living room which is unorganised and messy, then this will naturally affect your mood without you really noticing. If you are getting home and are feeling stressed or overwhelmed, then it is important that you take some time to tackle that messy wardrobe or organise an out of control post pile.

Once you do this, you will likely feel the atmosphere of the room shift and feel more relaxed. Spend time sorting through old and unused items to donate and invest in some stylish and appealing organisation storage, such as drawer inserts, baskets and clear jars to encourage you to keep up with your organisation.

Power of Plants

When you have had a busy week, many people spend their weekends trying to absorb as much of nature as possible, whether it be with a trip to a national park or woodland, or visiting the beach. We are naturally drawn to nature, especially when looking to relax and unwind, so why not try and emulate this in your home? Not only do plants and flowers add a pop of colour to your home decor, but they help to eliminate toxins from indoor spaces, which then reoxygenate your home.

Pay Attention To The Bedroom

Your bedroom should be the one room in the house where you go to escape and relax - it is a room used for sleeping, after all! Ensuring that your bedroom evokes calming and relaxing feelings is vital, but it is easy to overlook its importance. You want to walk into your bedroom and be wowed, so aim to make it as welcoming and luxurious as possible, but also somewhere where you can easily settle down and relax at the end of a long day. Additions such as designer furniture, calming aloe vera plants or art prints help to add a little bit of personality to a room, whilst also adding to the decor.

If you prefer neutral colours, then use these around your bedroom, whilst also using some pops of pastel or natural colours which resonate with you. Ensure that your bed is comfortable and relaxing, paying close attention to your bed linen and mattress condition, and avoid adding a television into your bedroom if you want it to be a true relaxation haven.
