Out of every destination on Earth, chances are, you feel the most comfortable and relaxed in your home. It makes sense. Home is where you sleep, cook in peace, and indulge in any source of entertainment you wish.
In fact, in the privacy of your home, this is typically where your most precious, intimate memories occur: your baby’s first steps, your silliest conversations with loved ones, personal milestones, and your deepest of thoughts. Often, these occur not only because you spend much of your time at home but because it provides that certain level of comfort.
But right now, can you say for certain that the home is as peaceful as you’d like it to be? If you aren’t certain that the answer is “yes,” consider the following tips to make the home more relaxing in an instant.
1. Fill your home with calming aromatics.
Nothing screams a relaxing home like the right aromatics filling the air. Although aromatics aren’t required for a cozy, comfy space, they can certainly help spice (no pun intended) the place up!
Aromatics can come in the form of fragrance sprays, candles, or essential oils. Some scents you might want to go for might include cinnamon, lavender, sea breeze, apple cider, jasmine, rose, or pumpkin spice.
2. Decorate with warm colors.
Just by including warmer colors in the home interior, you’ll feel more at ease on a psychological level. This doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go overboard and paint over your white walls, buy a couch of a different color, or purchase a new expensive rug. Rather, you can add warm colors to your space merely by filling it with affordable decor like small artwork.
Warm colors you might consider adding to the home include clay, ginger, burgundy, gold, maroon, butterscotch, wine, dijon yellow, burnt orange, or amber. If you wish to add warmth in the form of neutrals, go for gray, brown, tan, or beige.
3. Invest in proper air-cooling.
Some of us feel the coziest when in slightly colder than slightly warmer temperatures. After all, we often associate warmer temperatures with negative stimuli and emotions: fevers, sweating, anxiety, anger, stuffy noses, you get the point. In fact, research shows most people sleep better when sleeping in colder rooms, so surely, we’re more relaxed in these environments as well.
Air-cooling systems you might want to add include central air conditioning, swamp coolers, portable or non-portable fans, and the like. If you’re worried about noise being an issue when installing more air-cooling systems in your home, there are plenty of very quiet fans for sale on the market.
While you might already consider the home to be a calming place to entertain, socialize, and generally unwind, your place might need a bit of a facelift or minor alteration to become a truly relaxing environment. Calming aromatics, decor featuring warm colors, and air-cooling systems can all bring the peace your home lacks.
