What makes a room relaxing?

If you have walked into a room and felt instantly calm and relaxed, you will understand that a relaxing space can make a difference to your day. Here are some features that can be added to your space to create the feeling of calmness.

Room to breathe – Uncluttered spaces with clean lines are one of the best and easiest ways to create a relaxing space. Look at neatly arranging often used items on shelves or in cupboards, so that your counters are clear.

Minimal details create a feeling of spaciousness – Excess detail will make any space look cluttered. Look at clean interiors with glass or furniture in white to give the illusion of space.

Soothing details – Artwork can take us to a special place. Look at freshening paintings that will transport you to your happy place.

Fresh greenery – Plants can make a space more inviting, and the color green is known for its calming properties.

White – When in doubt, choose white. The color white will provide a room with a neutral backdrop that can soothe eyes as it provides the mind with the illusion of space and a blank canvas.

Comfortable bed linen – Good quality bed linen can help relax you when you get home from a long day at the office. Add good quality towels and a bath robe, and you have the luxury hotel feel at home.

Mood lighting – Strategic lighting that illuminates a room correctly, will provide you with sufficient light that is bright enough yet not harsh.
