With so many of us living fast-paced, stressful lives, it’s critical your home be as warm and relaxing as possible; there’s nothing better than walking through the door to a space of peace and tranquility. As they say, “there’s no place like home.”
To do this, you need to design your home around your senses, as these are what will ultimately produce this feeling of peace and tranquility. Here are some ways you can do this.
Every home has its own “scent,” and it’s important you take control of it so that it reflects the type of mood you want to feel inside your home. A great way to do this is to get an essential oil diffuser that also acts as a humidifier. This will help to make your home smell nice while also keeping the air health. Other options include using oils on your linens or pillows so that the scent will last longer and calm you down at all times.
How does it make you feel when you walk into a home and see clutter everywhere? For most of us, this probably isn’t great. The world outside is already chaotic enough. We don’t need that chaos on the inside, too. The best way to reduce clutter is to get rid of some stuff. Go through all the items you have laying around and ask yourself if you really need them. Those that you don’t can get tossed or put into storage, reducing the amount of stuff you have and freeing space up in your home.
When decorating your home, it’s easy to drift towards furniture and other items that look good, but this doesn’t mean these things will always be comfortable, which should be your top priority when choosing items to put in your home. Of course, you want to pay some attention to aesthetics, but if a sofa, chair, or bed is not comfortable, then don’t buy it. End of story.
You’ll surely be able to find something else that is sufficiently comfortable but that also helps you achieve the style you’re looking for. In the end, your goal should be to find stuff that feels good. We all know the feeling of comfort when we walk into a home, and this should be the goal of everything you put inside your house.
Focusing on how your home caters to these three senses can help improve the overall zen feeling of your home, turning your house into the sanctuary of peace, comfort, and tranquility that we all need when we come back from a long, stressful day hustling in the busy world around us.
