Designing a Happy Home: How to Create a Mood-Boosting Interior
You can decide the location for your new house after a couple of surveys. You can sort what you want and determine the furniture you would like around the house without much hassle. Perhaps, you can even decide the colors you’d like.
However, putting everything together may not be just as easy. It will be a rather complex and confusing process, especially when you want everything to come together in an energizing manner. Perhaps, radiating a mood-lifting aura. In that case, you will need to look at things rather strategically. Here’s our take at it:
Decide: Minimalism or Luxury Looks?
Perhaps, the first and essential question that you have to ask yourself is: what is your comfort zone? Do you feel more comfortable with minimalistic interiors, or do you require luxurious and grand looks to feel good about life?
According to various sources and actual house setups, minimalist homes give off a more determined and productive feel, while luxuriously set up homes give off a relaxing feeling. You should opt for what truly feels more appealing to you.
Remember, futuristic looks and a well-equipped house have nothing to do with minimalistic or luxury looks. In either case, you ought to keep your place equipped with the latest tech you can afford (not only for convenience but also for efficiency). Be it smart LED’s, kitchen equipment, or smart ceiling fans. Ensure that you have all that you can afford to arrange because surely you wouldn’t enjoy much in your home if you’re not comfortable.
Go for Vibrant Colors
According to psychology, vibrant colors keep the environment energized. You want to pick yellow if you want to feel happy and productive. Note that the shades of colors matter just as much. Although gold and mustard belong to the same parent color, they will not bring about the same liveliness to the environment. Similarly, blue can come in handy to bring about calming and tranquil effects at home.
Surely, you need not stick to one solid color only. You can use a combination or perhaps patterns. However, ensure that the colors fall in harmony with one another and are not in conflict. Otherwise, the entire aura and feel of the interiors can become rather disturbing.
Keep it Warm
Moving onwards, you should assess your interest in rugs and carpets, even if you have settled for a minimalist interior. We know, most people do not find the two a perfect fit. Plushy carpets often fall in conflict with sharp edges and solid, minimalist styling.
You can balance it out by choosing the right colors. A beige plush rug would not look as luxurious on a surface as other things. The reason we advise you to do so is that it adds a whole of warmth and comfort to your place. It makes it more welcoming and eradicates the cold feel.
And Keep it Tidy
Surely, you cannot expect the interiors to make you feel good (despite spending heavy sums) if they are not well maintained. Say you set up a top-notch, premium-quality lounge and still walk into a place turned upside down at the end of the day. You’ll most likely regret spending a penny even, which of course, will make you even more exhausted and frustrated after a tiring day.
If it’s difficult to clean up all by yourself, you can perhaps take home-maintaining assistance. Or perhaps, set up your house such that you have organized shelves and cupboards (or a proper place for everything). Naturally, it will all eventually contribute to your peace of mind.
Pour Yourself In!
Well, lastly, we will ask you to add a touch of yourself in every single room. You cannot quite feel connected to the interiors or the house if it doesn’t reflect you or your loved ones. Perhaps, add a frame or two with personal pictures that remind you of the good old time.
And if that’s not your thing, you can go with placing objects or ornaments that reflect your choices and make your home feel more like yours. Of course, this brings in a sense of ownership and makes the house feel more mood-lifting in both good and bad times.
Summing up, remember that designing a happy home requires both mental and emotional input. You need to make the right calculations and take the right measures. However, simultaneously, you need to ensure that these measures go hand in hand with your personal preferences. Only a fair combination of the two will truly yield an interior that possesses a mood-lifting element at all times.
