We enter our home to escape from all the unwanted stress and chaos that the outside world shoots at us. That’s why the phrase “There’s nothing like home exists.” But how do you achieve a relaxing chillout room in your house where you can destress yourself? Here we offer some ideas regarding the same which we hope you will find useful.
Ways you can create a Relaxation/Chillout Room
Get a day-bed installed
You sleep in your bedroom during the night time. But it might not be that relaxing during the day time. As opposed to the beds in bedroom, a day-bed is placed either in living room or any place with a large window, providing excellent sight of the outside. It’s perfect to take a nap and spend the afternoons with your family. You can throw in some rug and cushions for added comfort.
TV-free Book Zone
Reading a book of your preferred genre is a best way to shrug off stress. Therefore, to create a chillout zone in your room, dedicate a section with a mini library which would stock all of your favorite books. Whenever you are free or want to read some books, you can turn to this section. To make it more engaging, it’s always advised to not have television or any other gadgets in there.
Everybody would agree that nothing soothes the body as good as nature itself. So why not have a small indoor garden inside your home? You don’t need to over-invest in it. Just 5-6 flower pots surrounding a couple of chairs will do good. When you rest within this natural cubicle with your eyes closed, you will get connected to the nature, without even leaving your home.
Get some candles
The best part about candles is that you can lit candles in any room and have them for cheap. Science does recognizes candles as a calming agent and the flames coming out of the candles soothe our soul. This is furthered by scented candles which positively stimulate the olfactory organs. Whenever you feel the need, sit calmly in a room with all doors and windows closed, lights out. Light a candle in the middle of the room and sit back for positivity to take over.
Choose tranquilizing paint colors
While you may not realize it, colors do subconsciously affect your mood. Most home designers advice to paint bedrooms with peaceful colors, playrooms with bright colors. For example, red color is thought to elevate heart rate, yellow and orange stimulate energetic feelings. This study of colors and its effects on humans falls under color psychology. According to this, the colors that take you into a relaxed state are blue, purple, and green.
Clutters can give even the most organized homes a chaotic look. These in turn affect your mood adversely. Clutters can be anything from dust to unused/old furniture. So it’s wise to remove all the clutters from your range of vision.
As you see, creating a relaxing chill out space is not too hard, neither expensive. You just have to be creative and listen to your inner self for ideas.
