We know that the decoration of a house has a powerful influence on people’s well-being, although it is also true that we often make the mistake of not paying too much attention to it.
In reality, home decoration is a set of guidelines that can be more or less in harmony and have a very relevant influence on people’s moods. That is why it is so important to pay attention to every one of the decorative elements that we integrate into the different rooms of our house. Even beyond the aesthetic sense that they have or pursue.
But is it possible to find a balance? Of course, yes. And it must be done if what we want is to enter our house and feel at peace and harmony in it. So today, we want to give you five ideas to help you find the point you are looking for to improve your well-being at home through decoration. Ready for the change? Well, let’s go!
First of all: order
Put everything to order. You cannot start decorating or redecorating your house if there is no order in it, so before getting down to work with the changes, try to order all the rooms thoroughly. You don’t have to do everything in one day, but you can start with specific rooms: the bathroom, the living room, the kitchen … This step will take time, so don’t despair.
When you’re done with one stay, start with the next. Knowing that your drawers and cabinets are organized will also help you put an order in your mind because you will know that your house is beautiful both inside and out.
Make up your mind and unify the style
That things have an aesthetic sense is everything and, in a house, the style must be unified to be harmonious. What does this mean? Well, if you have chosen a Nordic decorative style for the whole house, it makes little sense that you continue to keep your grandmother’s dresser as it was in her living room. What can you do about it? Well, if you like it so much that you cannot do without it, it would be interesting if you did important restoration work, adapting it to the aesthetic sense of your home.
Perhaps the wood will have to be stripped and sanded, and you can apply paint or varnish more suitable for the new style of your home. You can also change the knobs or renew the mirror, which has deteriorated over time.
Minimize and simplify (please)
Let’s tackle a topic: less is more. And although it sounds like the usual, it is no less true for that. When it is your turn to put order (the first step), you will have eliminated most of the things you do not need so that you will have done much of the work. But if what you want is to gain well-being at home, you will have to take one more step: minimize and simplify.
A house in which objects are not accumulated is a house you want to be and enjoy. That helps structure our minds when we are exhausted and need a little peace.
The colors? Neutral
Let’s not go crazy with colors. There was a time when some houses looked like nightclubs. The walls of the living room, in red. The cushions: in black. The hallway, in pistachio green. The girl’s room: in fuchsia pink. We are aware that there are colors for tastes, but … how should the colors of a house be in which well-being is enhanced? The choice is clear: the tones must be as neutral as possible, which does not mean that we cannot add color notes. There are ways.
A very personal decoration
If there is something that you should take into account before embarking on the task of redecorating your home, it is the decorative elements that you are going to include in it. For a long time, we have filled our houses with objects that others have given us or paintings that our family and friends have made us without asking them. So stick to your decorative goals.
Those elements you choose must have a positive influence on you. That is why you should select only decorative objects that mean something and comfort your soul. You can also frame photos that you like, of people or special moments.
