Most people want their home to be a haven, a relaxing zone where they can just unwind after work or on the weekends. But what if your home doesn’t offer you that relaxation? At Windows, Walls & More here in West Bloomfield, we’re offering a few tips below on how to help shape your home to the relaxation zone you want. Read on for more!
A Refuge From Everyday Chaos
Getting away from the stresses of everyday life shouldn’t have to be difficult. In fact, sometimes it just boils down to some decoration choices. For example:
- Neutrals as the foundation. Bright colors make for a bright and heightened vibe. Which is perfect for a room where you know you’ll be active. But if you’re looking to unwind, a neutral palette with milder colors can create a greater sense of ease. And don’t worry! Neutrals won’t make “boring” room—you can add pops of color in specific areas to brighten the tone, and you can add texture in things like area rugs, blankets, throw pillows, and artwork to create additional visual interest.
- Reduce the clutter. Your conscious mind might not recognize it, but your unconscious mind could be wound up by any form of, making it harder for you to relax. Clear up that clutter to create a more calming atmosphere. Find woven baskets, decorative boxes, or soft space cubes to store things like mail or paperwork. Pare down your décor to only the items you really love—a busy room can lead to anxiety and stress.
- Natural light can help reduce stress. There’s a reason animals enjoy that one patch of natural light in the living room. It’s a bit magical—even if it’s not direct sunlight shining through your window. Choose window fashions that will enhance the beauty of the light in your room. Hunter Douglas has great products that can perfectly diffuse light (such as Silhouette® Window Shadings, Pirouette® Window Shadings, or Designer Banded Shades), control light (for example, through the tilting power of Heritance® Hardwood Shutters), or offer full sunlight with privacy (like with the top-down/bottom-up operation available on many Hunter Douglas shades). Especially in the winter, light can be the most important relaxation tool, so speak with one of our representatives to find out what will be best in your particular space.
