Often, life becomes chaotic and overwhelming. Having a home that helps you relax and unwind is important to your well-being. We’ll be giving you some ideas and tips to curate a feel good home so you can live well. Let’s dive in!
Balance the Light
No one likes to feel like they live in a cave. On the other hand, too much of a good thing can actually be harmful. That’s why light filtering window treatments are a go-to feature for your feel good home. Soft, warm light promotes a healthy lifestyle and overall happy mood. In turn, it can help you sleep better at night. We love the look of a sleek roller shade to achieve these benefits.
Remember when you took that trip? Or what about that special moment with friends? Photos of your favorite memories and people are worth adding to your space. Easily create a photo wall with printed images from your camera roll. You’ll love how they elevate your feel good home. Pro tip: Before hanging your photos on the wall, arrange them on the floor to make placement easier. Add some matching frames and your mood booster for the day is done!
Piles of random objects, stuff hanging from every chair and the internal anxiety of organizing. This is the anti-thesis of the feel good home. Clutter can easily build up over time. Cut down the chaos and get organized with a few of our top tips.
- Sift through items regularly to determine if it has a space in your home
- Determine what your clutter boundaries are
- Choose organization tools that are easily accessible
One of the best ways to get clutter out of your home is to regularly let go of items you don’t use. Another practice to impede clutter is limiting where it can go. Having zones where you can be completely at ease without having to look at the piles is key. If you notice trends in clutter production throughout your home, we have some ideas. Put out a decorative basket where your family tends to drop random items so you can curb and contain it right away.
Functionality at Home: Your Lifestyle + Design
We’ve all seen the TV shows and DIY gurus that say “this is the best way to do X for your home.” In reality, if your home isn’t functional with your lifestyle it’s time for a change. When things aren’t convenient enough it can leave you feeling frustrated. Here are some evaluation questions to ask yourself to see what improvements you need.
- Is my space allowing us to do what my family likes doing?
- Are there zones where individuals can have quiet time by themselves?
- Would daily habits become easier if I customized a space?
- Is my home designed with space for family members to enjoy hobbies?
Say Good Morning to Good Sleep
Being in the perpetual cycle of sleepless nights and groggy days. Is there anything worse than this? Setting rhythms for when you go to bed and getting quality sleep is part of the feel good home. Making it a reality starts with your window treatments. Set your shades to automatically open at your preferred wake-up time. It’s just one less step to your morning routine.
Assess Your Senses
The ways you can improve your home can be intimidating and stressful. Quickly determining what changes you can make starts with the senses.
Creating the ideal home for your family might seem like a daunting task. But, there’s one way to personalize it quickly–or at least identify which elements will make it feel more like home. Use your five senses to evaluate which elements could use some work.
Smell: The scents of air fresheners, candles, plugin scent diffusers, and cleaning products help personalize your home. The smell of a fresh home when you walk in is unmatched.
Sight: We already addressed clutter. But clean spaces, a pop of artwork, and color elements are quick ways to the feel good home aesthetic.
Sound: What could the right sounds to your mood? In moments of relaxation perhaps soft sounds from a bluetooth speaker is what you need. Or what about at night? Some white noise in the background can be the perfect touch.
Touch: Soft textiles, plush pile rugs, and chunky woven blankets. These textures create warmth for a feel good home.
Taste: Make it easy to grab a healthy snack of fruits, nuts, or veggies. Practically, this makes tasting good food more convenient. And if you’re tired of cooking the same rotation of meals, try making a menu together with your family.
