4 Ways Your Decor is Affecting Your Emotional Wellbeing

4 Ways Your Decor is Affecting Your Emotional Wellbeing

Interior design is something that reaches beyond simple colours and furniture patterns. It delves deep into our psychology to make a room impact our wellbeing. This is something worth keeping in mind when choosing your home’s décor. To make sure your home provides you with the most optimal environment to relax and stay productive, you need to utilize some common décor rules. If you’re unsure where to start, these are some great examples of how décor will affect your emotional wellbeing.

Natural lighting relaxes and keeps you fresh

Lighting is something that many homeowners take for granted. They count on the various lightbulbs in their home to give dark areas light, even during the day. While this may provide enough visibility and clarity to your rooms, it’s not exactly the best option out there.

Even the most high-quality lightbulbs can’t hold a candle to natural lighting. The sun’s rays are the absolute best form of lighting for your home, no matter what kind of décor or aesthetic you apply to it. Natural light keeps you awake and makes you feel at peace, while also giving you enough energy to go about your day. In every single case, you’re going to want to increase the amount of natural lighting in your home.

To do this, you need more windows, and you need to make them bigger. Living rooms often have a window or two to provide a bit of light during the day, but this isn’t nearly enough. You want to go bigger and better. Have windows in every room in your home, with few exceptions. Even your bathroom is fair game. You can keep It private by installing a skylight instead of multiple windows. Other rooms can have as many large windows as they need, just use curtains where necessary.

Colours and their patterns impact your emotions

Colours and their patterns impact your emotions

Colours have always been considered crucial for home interior design. You need to make your accent your furniture and walls to make them pop. Creating contrasting images with proper lighting allows you to bring a bit more variety to your home, even when using the most basic of layouts. For any great home design, you need interesting colours.

Did you know that colours also affect your mood? A blue-tinged bedroom with blue wallpapers makes you feel relaxed and at peace, while the same kind of yellow bedroom will keep you energetic throughout the day. It’s all about picking the right colours to match the room’s mood.

When you want to get into more complex colours and patterns, you have to use your intuition. How would you feel in a red and black checkered room? A room with ocean themes would go well with some coral-like colours. There’s a lot to weigh here when picking colours, so make sure you get it right. Consult some design magazines every once in a while for help with colour picks.

Peace and sound presence are important for relaxation

When you think of décor, you probably imagine interesting furniture, colours, and room layouts. Very few people will think about sound when designing their rooms, but it’s an integral part of your home’s design.

No matter how peaceful your room feels, it’s not going to soothe and calm you if you constantly hear traffic and commotion from outside. You need to block these sounds out to give yourself a calm and relaxing oasis. This is where laminated noise reduction windows can come in handy.

Noise pollution is a big deal in large cities, which is where these windows come in handy. They have more layers than your average window and this helps block sounds from the outside. The laminated layer is what adds additional protection from noise pollution. It’s an effective way to keep your home quieter and more peaceful.

Minimalism vs maximalism

Minimalism vs maximalism

Many modern décor choices depend on your taste. Take minimalism and maximalism as great examples. Each has its own kind of charm, but they affect different individuals in different ways. You can't just apply one of them without knowing what you prefer.

If you want the chic fake-cluttered look, consider whether or not it will go well with how you planned out the home. If you want a contemporary monochrome look, minimalism might be just the right look for you. If organized chaos makes you feel calm and relaxed in your home, a maximalist chic look would be a better choice. It all depends on taste, and you need to fully realize yours before you make any rash decisions regarding your home’s décor.

Conclusion

Designing the perfect home isn’t easy. You want to be able to match your tastes and make yourself feel good. While these things usually go hand-in-hand, you also need to look at some universally-accepted rules of home décor. Apply some of these examples to your home’s design and you’ll find that you’ll feel a lot more relaxed and at peace within your home.
