SOME BASIC PRINCIPLES FOR CREATING A CALM AND RELAXING SPACE

One of the best parts about having your own home is how calm and centred you feel in it. But go for the wrong interior design choices and you can end up with the opposite feeling. So, if you really want a collected and relaxing space, then here are some tips on how you can get them:

Your colour scheme matters the most

The very first thing that matters when designing a calm space is to find the perfect colour scheme. It’s the fulcrum of the whole debate. If you pick something vibrant and vivid your space is automatically going to feel energetic, but if you pick something understated, then your space is going to look refined, tranquil, and serene.

Decluttered

Physical clutter has a way of causing lots of stress, which is why a neat and clean space is what you should go for when designing a calm space. You can take help from related themes like the minimalist, Japandi, and Scandinavian style. Since they’re very refined, to begin with, they’ll help you manage the amount of physical objects that you bring to the ambiance.

The importance of lighting

Lighting is quite important when designing a calm space. Do note that bright lights can never produce the kind of environment where you can easily relax in. Instead, you should opt for dim, moody, and soft gold lighting. It helps set the mood and makes you want to kick back and let go of all your worries as you relax.

An organized outlook

Making your space look organized can also invoke a sense of calm – especially for people who feel irritated by even the slightest asymmetry. If you’re wondering how you could do this, then think about a grid formation of picture frames on your feature wall, beautifully organized end tables, and sharp décor.

Natural textures

Natural textures are a surefire way to emulate a sense of sereneness in a space. The great thing is that you can choose your pick from quite a number of them. There’s the evergreen wood that is able to evoke a cozy vibe. Then there are all the different types of stone textures that can make a space feel cool, inviting, and modern. There are also fabric textures like jute and sisal that can evoke a boho-chic vibe in a room!
