More than 90% of an average person’s life is spent indoors and that makes everything about building design – from paint, décor ideas and room size to airiness, some of the essential considerations while planning your home. Transform your home into the most desired retreat with these décor ideas which have a strong influence on your positive behavior.
Consider the live example of a shrink’s counseling room; the space will be free of clutter with a very few furniture arranged in a perfect tone that is conducive for the patient to open up. Narrow rooms with small windows and low ceilings that are cluttered with a lot of trash & furniture are more likely to exert stress on your mind. Spacious and airy spaces high on natural light infuse a sense of calmness into the atmosphere.
- Welcoming Warmth
Custom size area rugs can not only open up your space but they can also add perfect warmth to your interiors. The kind of patterns you choose can decide the kind of interior you want to create. Invigorating patterns on an area rug can add energy to a space while wavy patterned or textured rugs bring about a calming effect to your interiors.
- Lighting Influence
According to the results of a Japanese study conducted by the College of Humanities and Sciences at Nihon University in Tokyo revealed that dim lighting evoked relaxed feelings. This is particularly evident in the food industry, comparing fast food and specialty restaurants; fast food centers tend to have bright interiors to rev up your activities while the restaurant sports dim interiors that encourage you to stay longer and order more.
- Free Bedroom
Aim at creating a distraction-free environment when designing a bedroom since this is one space that needs to be free from noise pollution of any sort. Free your bedroom of computers, TV & refrigerator because the noise emitted by these machineries can negatively affect the way you perceive a resting place.
- Aroma Ambiance
The smell of freshly baked bread and fresh ground coffee is what makes a house a home; pleasant aromas boost the apparent beauty of a room as perceived by the human mind. Pungent or bad odor can easily put off your mood. An arrangement to infuse aroma through potpourri, scented candles and flowers is a convenient way to calm your senses.
- Colour Commotion
Colour is a personal choice best left to individuals. Nevertheless, pastel colors are mostly preferred by decorators since neutral wall paints have a calming effect on the mind. These shades of blue and pale shades of other colours are associated with calming the mind.
- The Serenity of Nature
A sunroom or an arrangement for having indoor plants helps to build a serene place. Apart from the numerous benefits, an overdose of indoor foliage improves your focus and creates a stress-free environment. We feel calm and happy in a park than in the city traffic don’t we? Of course, we do!
