If you’re like a lot of Window Treats customers here in Monmouth Beach, you want your home to be a relaxing haven to enjoy after work and on the weekends. Yet maybe you don’t feel it’s exactly that way just yet. Don’t worry—we’ve got a few tips for how to achieve it. Check them out below!
Create Your Refuge
Creating a refuge from the everyday life shouldn’t have to be difficult. In fact, it can often just boil down to some easy choices. Use neutral colors to shape the scene. Obviously, bright colors up the vibe in a room. So if you’re looking to unwind, a neutral palette with milder colors can create a greater sense of ease. And don’t worry! Neutrals don’t have to be boring—you can add pops of color in specific areas to brighten the tone, and you can add texture in things like area rugs, comfy blankets, throw pillows, and artwork to create additional visual interest. Also, highlight happy memories to help you feel more at ease. Photos of times with friends and loved ones can bring a greater sense of happiness to your space—particularly if you aren’t able to see those people all the time. Some other tips include:
- Declutter. You might not actively notice it, but any form of clutter could be gnawing at your subconscious, making it harder for you to relax. To bring about a more calming atmosphere, clear the clutter. Use baskets, decorative boxes, or soft space cubes as storage for things like mail or paperwork.
- Highlight relaxing activities. If you find peace in reading, listening to music, or doing jigsaw or crossword puzzles, designate one area for that relaxing activity. You might find that, after time, you’ll have trained your brain to start to immediately relax as soon as you sit down in that spot.
- Make the most of natural light. Let your window fashions lead the way here. For perfect light diffusion, consider Silhouette® Window Shadings, Pirouette® Window Shadings, or Designer Banded Shades from Hunter Douglas. If you want to completely control light, consider the tilting power of Heritance® Hardwood Shutters. Especially in the winter, light can be the most important relaxation tool, so speak with one of our representatives to find out what will be best in your particular space.
