How To Bring Nature In Your Home And The Serenity That Comes With It

The lives we lead often leave very little time and space for us to enjoy nature. However, even though we don’t get to spend as much time in nature, we can find ways to surround ourselves and stay in touch with it.

It is scientifically proven that nature has a positive effect on our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Spending time in nature or simply viewing scenes of nature can reduce stress, anxiety, and anger. Apart from that, it also reduces blood pressure, muscle tension, and heart rate.

The problem is you can’t always be in nature. However, you can surround yourself with it. By bringing nature into your home, you bring a sense of peace, serenity as well as a peace of mind.

In this article, we’re going to share with you all the best ways to bring nature into your home.

1.      Decorate your home with natural materials

The easiest way to bring nature to your home is by decorating and styling your home with natural elements and materials.

This implies installing hardwood or stone floors, investing in furniture made of natural materials, decorating your home with natural textiles and fibers, and so on.

If you’re interested in bringing the outdoors in, start with your floors. Nowadays, there are many natural flooring options such as wood, stone, tile, even bamboo flooring – whatever works best for you.

Similarly, buying all-natural furniture, as well as natural and organic upholstery is another way to bring the outdoors in. Plus, all-natural furniture will last longer. Also, furniture made of reclaimed wood will not only bring nature into your home but it will be eco-friendly and sustainable, and much more affordable.

The décor of your home can also be all-natural. Use organic textiles and fabrics such as jute, linen, sheep wool, hemp, and many more. Décor pieces can also be natural – from wicker baskets to stone and wood decorations.

2.      Let natural light in

Bright and airy rooms and places have a positive effect on our mood and health. In addition to that, bright rooms create a completely different atmosphere and all the light can make any room seem bigger.

So, it’s important to let natural light into your home. You can do this by installing windows throughout your home in order to increase natural light. However, this is a slightly more expensive way to let the light in. There are other, more simple, and less expensive ways to let the light in or to create the illusion of more natural light.

For example, place mirrors that will reflect the light and in that way brighten any dark room. Or you can simply paint your walls with lighter colors such as whites or light grays. Apart from that, regularly clean your windows and invest in sheer curtains.

Letting in natural light will not only change the feel of the whole room or house, but it will also reduce your electricity bills which is always a huge plus.

3.      Use eco-friendly cleaning products

This may not be a direct way to bring nature into your home but by preserving nature and being eco-friendly, you are taking care of the nature around your home.

You can easily do this by cleaning your home with natural and eco-friendly products. Instead of buying harsh chemicals and toxic cleaning products that can not only hurt nature but your health as well, try buying or making products that consist of natural and more sustainable products.

For example, if you were wondering how to clean windows without using chemical products that not only hurt nature but often leave smears and streaks on the glass – there is a solution.

You can easily clean your windows with natural cleaning solutions that are easy to come by and are pretty cheap. Moreover, some of the ingredients for those cleaning solutions you already have in your home – water, vinegar, and a bit of lemon juice.

And not only your windows but every surface in your home can also be cleaned with similar solutions that are eco-friendly and sustainable!

4.      Decorate with plants

This is a pretty obvious way to bring nature indoors. Decorate your home with plants – any plants and flowers you like that can thrive indoors. Plants are not only beautiful decorations that will bring freshness and nature into your home, but they are also extremely beneficial for your health.

Plants are natural air purifiers and they help reduce stress and anxiety as well. By bringing plants into your home you can reap many benefits.

In case, you don’t have a green thumb, some plants are easy to maintain and are pretty resilient, so you won’t have any problems keeping them alive.

Some of the most popular indoor plants include succulents, orchids, cacti, ferns, and so on.

You can buy plants of different shapes and sizes depending on the space of your home. There are plants suitable even for the smallest homes and spaces – so don’t lack of space be the excuse for not having any plants in your home.

These are only some of the ways you can use to bring nature into your home. Create a home that will help your stay connected with nature and that will give you a sense of peace and serenity that comes when spending time in nature. It’s really not difficult – bring some plants in and try to use as many natural materials as you can, and you’re already halfway there!
