Styling your home to suit your wellbeing

DesignInteriors|24 August 2020
Your personal wellbeing is one of the most important things in life, so it's equally important to style your home to suit you and your lifestyle and create a home that you love spending time in. Here are our top tips to styling your home to sut your wellbeing.
Styling your home to suit your wellbeing


Light

The correct lighting is key to a better mood. Natural light makes the room appear, lighter, brighter and more spacious allowing you to feel calmer and more relaxed. Enabling as much natural light to flow through the rooms of your home will help with your sense of wellbeing. If you have limited natural light in places where there are no windows or smaller rooms consider using different types of bulbs to get the same effect. Daylight bulbs are great to use in places like your kitchen and bathroom, whilst dimmable lights are better in your living room and bedroom as this will help create a warm, cosy feel, allowing you to relax. 

Colour scheme

Colour can have a huge impact on our mood. There are certain colours that leave us feeling happy and some that make us sad. These aren’t necessarily bright and dark colours, everyone is different. Look your home and think about what colours make you happy and then fill your home with that colour. Even if it’s just an accent colour to add through cushions or a vase, make sure you inject that colour into every room no matter how subtle to leave you feeling more content in your home. 

Scent 

Using scents in the home is a powerful tool. It can take you back to a different time and place, somewhere you love going. Have a think about a time when you was at your happiest, at peace and fully relaxed. What could you smell? Maybe you was at the beach or a spa?  Pick out candles, diffusers and room sprays to recreate that smell and place them around your home. 

Plants 

Plants are a great addition to your home under any circumstance but they are actually proven to be great for your wellbeing. Not only are they beautiful but they also help reduce stress and breathing problems. Being outside can also boost your mood within minutes so why not bring the outside in, and fill your home with plants. There are some many varieties from low to high maintenance plants, to plants that need to be stored in specific temperatures. Take the time to fill your home with the right plants and enjoy watching them grow. 

Tidy home, tidy mind

Having a tidy home can mean you have time and space to breathe and enjoy the room you’re in. Minimizing clutter is a great way to bring mindfulness into the home and cleaning your home is a great coping mechanism when feeling stressed.  This doesn’t mean that you need to completely rid your home of clutter, but it does mean it may be time to tackle that draw or cupboard that has always being a dumping ground for things you don’t want on show. Take the time to cleanse your home of all the things you no longer need/get the use out of and in turn it will cleanse your mind.
