Making Your Home Your Happy Place

If you’re prone to bouts of stress or anxiety, you suffer from depression, or you simply want to take better care of your mental health, having a place where you feel completely calm and comfortable to call home can really make a difference. If you don’t quite feel like home is where your heart is, or you haven’t managed to put down roots in a new house or condo yet, this guide will hopefully help you turn your home into your happy place.



Celebrate your personality

Your home should be an extension of your personality, so use the chance to revamp the interiors or make the space more homely as a means to celebrate your individuality and showcase your style. Don’t feel like you have to buy pieces you’ve seen on Instagram feeds or follow trends that everyone seems to be pinning. Choose colors, styles, patterns, and textures that you like and put them together to create designs that you love. Who wants to have a house that looks like every other property on the block?


Create a cozy, comfortable space

When you walk into your home, you should feel relaxed instantly. You want to experience that feeling when your shoulders seem to drop automatically, and tension is released from every muscle in your body. Arriving home should feel like a virtual hug. If you’re not quite there yet, focus your energy on adding coziness and creating a comfortable space. Make sure you’re warm enough in the winter by investing in an efficient hot water heater boiler and fit a ceiling fan or an air conditioning unit to keep you cool in the summer. Add textures such as woolen blankets and faux fur rugs in the cooler months and replace them with linen and cotton when temperatures rise. Use colors that you find soothing and comforting and don’t underestimate the importance of a dreamy mattress and a couch you can sink into at the end of a busy day.



Channel your passions

Your home should be somewhere you can kick back and chill out, but it can also be a space that inspires and motivates you. Use your hobbies and passions to design areas that enable you to express yourself and enjoy the time you have at home. Do you love writing? Are you a music lover? Do you enjoy sewing or baking? If so, why not set up a desk in the spare room to note down your musings or use a corner of the kitchen to house your collection of cake tins, utensils and cookie cutters? Focus on spending your time doing things that make you happy.


Do you long to have a home that makes you feel completely at ease? If you don’t feel relaxed the moment you arrive home, hopefully, these tips will help you create a more homely space that makes you happy and calm. Overhaul or refresh the interiors to showcase your style, focus on comfort and use your home to enable you to indulge your passions, relax and have fun.
