At the end of a long, exhausting day, most of us just want to be home. We want to relax and unwind with a good book, maybe a glass of wine, and we want to enjoy the sounds of silence.
If you want a home that will give you this sense of tranquility, here are a few tips.
First and foremost you absolutely need comfortable furniture, you certainly can't relax with a metal bar from a couch sticking into your backside. As for your surroundings, you want it to be almost mediation friendly decor. Simple is your friend here. A few soothing pieces neatly placed will suffice. Clutter and untidiness are your worse enemy, most of us can not relax in a cluttered hectic environment.
Finally, you want to utilize nature as much as you possibly can. Natural light just before sunset can put you entirely at peace. Don't keep your blinds closed and shut yourself out from mother nature, even if its raining, snowing or even cloudy. There is a reason we love the sounds of nature, it's relaxing. Don't be shy to add some nice plant life to your home either, but try to stay clear of the plastic green, real plants warm us best.
