What Does Your Interior Style Have to do With Your Wellbeing

What Does Your Interior Style Have to do With Your Wellbeing

How do you feel when you walk into a perfectly clean and tidy hotel room with a large bed, a Jacuzzi and a gorgeous nature views? Like most of us, you probably feel happy, relaxed, fresh and energized! Now imagine getting into a small, stuffy room with dark blinds, outdated colors and stained carpets. The feeling this environment evokes is so much different, right? As you can see, the interior we inhabit has a huge effect on your mood, emotions, behaviors and general wellbeing. So, how can you boost only the positive feelings and ditch the negative ones in your home? Here’s a little guide that explains the psychology behind interior design.

Layout

Layout

If your layout is tailored specifically to your lifestyle, you’ll have a much better experience in your home. For instance, if you love to host parties, a kitchen connected to your dining room and living room will be the best layout for you. If you’re a deeply private person, compartmentalized space will make you feel the most comfortable and relaxed in your home.

Colors

Colors

Colors not only add interest to the space, but they also stimulate the brain and trigger emotions. The psychology of colors is very complicated, but long story short, different shades impact our feelings and affect the chemical composition of our brains. So, when incorporating color into your home, make sure to be careful. Neutrals are always a good path to take because they aid calmness. A neutral environment with a few splashes of color will achieve the best balance between relaxation and enthusiasm.

Furniture

Furniture

Your furniture is here not only to offer you comfort and usability of the space, but also to reflect your style and taste. Furniture is often used to convey the owner’s preferences as well as cultural heritage. Your sofas, recliners and other elements have a big impact on the feel of your space and need to be picked out carefully. If what you aim for are clean simplicity and maximum comfort, check out King Living furniture with gorgeous minimalist design but also practical materials and color palettes. If you want something that’s designer yet simple and practical, this look is something to consider. For people who prefer something a little busier, feel free to play with design and materials, but still choose something with more simplistic and softer forms. Too many sharp edges trigger stress.

Lighting

Lighting

The amount of illumination in your home will have a great effect on your mind. Spaces with more lighting evoke optimistic, relaxed and confident thoughts, so if you want to improve the look and feel of your home, take a look at your lighting. If you have the chance, boost the natural light in your home, otherwise, look into some artificial lighting solutions to brighten up your space.

Windows

Windows

Windows are very important components of your interior. They not only provide light, but also cool or heat the space and give healthy airflow. But, they can also be key in your decoration for wellbeing. When choosing your window treatment, consider your position and climate. Some coverings that reflect the light are perfect for energy efficiency and warm homes, while those airy window treatments offer plenty of airflow and sunshine. You might also consider the amount of privacy. No matter how beautiful your space is, it will never be comfortable if you lack privacy.

Nature and plants

Nature and plants

Greenery adds a touch of freshness and wellbeing to every space, no matter if you love succulents and cacti or flowering plants. In theory, every room deserves a plant that will create that beneficial connection with the natural world and help with creating a serene space. In turn, this will provide your mind with a good base for relaxation, positivity and calmness which is what we all want from a home.

Minimalism or maximalism?

Minimalism or maximalism?

The number of things you have in your space will definitely affect your mental state. Rooms with a minimal amount of visible décor will fill you with different emotions than those brimming with furniture, decoration and colors, so consider what feelings you want to evoke. For instance, if you’re aiming to achieve that open, airy and pleasant vibe, make sure to get rid of all your visible clutter and embrace minimalism. Neutral and minimalist spaces help the human mind recharge, relax, recover, reduce depression and anxiety and achieve mental clarity. On the other hand, spaces with a lot of personality boost the spirit of community and familiarity and make everyone feel welcome no matter if they live there or just visit. See what sort of energy you need in your life and decorate accordingly.

Wellbeing is a complex concept that can be affected even by the smallest things like your home’s interior design. So, through some careful research and décor selection, you can create a space that will satisfy all your needs, no matter if you crave relaxation and peace or energy and inspiration.
