Lax Living: Making Your Home A Proper Chill-Out Space



Relaxation isn’t just something that would be nice to have on occasion, it should be something we have access to every day. But we all operate with very stressful lives, whether we have a stressful job or there are too many things to do, it can have an impact on our quality of life, and if we feel like there’s no let-up, it can severely impact every aspect of our day-to-day living. Your home should be a nice relaxing haven, somewhere that you can truly relax and be yourself but it’s not always possible. But there are ways you can decorate your home to help make your haven a truly relaxing one.

Make The Changes You Really Want

For so many of us, the root cause of not feeling relaxed in our own home is because we’re unable to make the necessary changes we want. And, yes, while this may mean a lot of renovation, it may be the key to you feeling like you belong in your home for the first time. It’s a common complaint that, for a lot of us, there’s one “problem room” which seems to cloud our whole opinion of the house, so this might be a good place to start. There are plenty of companies like Fleming construction and their services that can renovate a house from top to bottom, and while this may be a stressful process at the outset, if this is the key to you finally having the home you really want, then surely it’s a necessary evil in the short term?


Don’t Go Overboard With Color

A lot of patterns and loud colors is an overload of the senses, meaning that it’s going to be harder for you to relax. So if you go through every room of your home and stick to relaxing color tones like cool blues, greens or neutral tones, this will give you the head start on creating a relaxing environment. This is especially vital in the bedroom where you need to be completely relaxed so you can have a good night’s sleep.


Limit Your Light

The temptation is to light up every part of your home, but if you have a big bright overhead light, it can be very difficult for you to wind down at the end of the day. Instead, use spot lighting for areas where you need a little brightness. And make the upgrade to full spectrum bulbs which mimic natural light, creating a more relaxing atmosphere.


Don’t Clutter

Anxiety for all of us is the result of mental clutter, so the same applies to your living areas. If you can create a lot of space it will help you to unwind and not have the feeling of everything being on top of you. But of course, we are all different, so think about what your ideal living space is and bring it to life.

The home should be the last place we feel anxious, but we are guilty of overloading our homes with loud color and items that aren’t essential to our everyday living. So if you can find ways to reduce the physical clutter in your home as well as make a few little changes here and there, it will make your home somewhere you really want to go back to at the end of a difficult day.
