Isolating yourself from everyday problems, negative emotions, from the crowd and noise can be vital for your health and peace in mind. You should always have a place to go to from a business day when you can relax and charge your batteries. And, you won’t believe, but that place should be your house. And If it isn’t, there is only one way out: use your own strength and do everything possible to make your home a real paradise of peace and comfort. We will try to help you and give a few tips on how to turn your home into a staycation resort.
Buy a fluffy carpet and panels
A pretty, good quality fluffy carpet will have a big role in turning your home into a real resort. Imagine putting your bare feet on it after a long day in uncomfortable shoes. But, a fluffiness is not the only positive side of it. A carpet will absorb all unnecessary sound, so you’ll have an oasis of peace in your home. To get even better soundproofing effect, get some interesting decorative panels for walls.
Get rid of clutter and junk
Unnecessary things tend to create chaos. Collecting it you will find yourself confused and not able to find anything in your own home. This will lead to anxiety and a bad mood. Do a general cleaning, get rid of the unnecessary and not used things. If you find out that you are emotionally attached to some old, dusty vase you can always get a picture of it and you won’t forget all the memories that it brings you. Also, garage sale sounds like a great idea! You can earn some money for a new carper or a vase!
Many people find that they can rest or even sleep better by listening to calm and relaxing music. A compilation of classical music or white sounds can do wonders for you and the way you feel at home. There are great compilations of forest and nature sounds for those who are not fans of classical music. Find something that suits you and enjoy! Some research has shown that listening to music at around 60 beats per minute can reduce stress while increasing productivity, so it’s a double bonus!
There is no artificial light that can replace a natural one. Even if you are not so lucky to have big windows with a view on a forest or a park, try not to darken a single window in your house. Sunlight is essential for our psyche and can always make you feel peaceful and warm. Remember the precious feeling when the ray of sunshine awakens you in the morning.
Bringing nature into your home — resort
Supplementing the interior with natural elements, colours and decorations can bring peace and calmness into any space. A great way of bringing nature spirit into your home is by incorporating a few pots with houseplants. They don’t have just a decorative role, they are also practical and beneficial.
For some people, caring for plants allows them to relax and unwind from problems and daily routine. Others grow plants to make the space cosier and more comfortable. Eather way, it is a great step into transforming your home. Plants can also purify the air, help reduce dust and increase the relative humidity.
A pleasant smell
Now that you finished all the steps above, it’s time to create pleasant smells that will make your home a great place to be in.
Scented wax candles can smell even if you don’t lit it. Place the candle on a shelf in your wardrobe or laundry drawer, so your clothes and sheets always smell great. If you haven’t found candles with your favourite scent on sale, you can purchase aromatic oils and apply them on a cotton ball or disc. A small vase or bowl with scented cotton balls looks aesthetically pleasing and fits anywhere in your home, in a bathroom or living room.
A special corner
Transforming the whole house can take time, but you should at least have one special corner that can be your Staycation Resort. A balcony or a piece of a yard with a pergola roof above it will perfectly do a job. Buy a swing or a nice chair, where you can spend your evenings reading or just enjoying in peace with a glass of vine.
In these crazy days when everyone lives fast, it is very difficult to find a quiet place where you can just relax and enjoy the moment. Taking a vacation is a great idea, but now or then you’ll have to return to your home. And our advice is to follow these tips and make every returning from work or noisy word home into a vocation.
