4 Ways to Make Your Home Feel Tranquil and Harmonious

The world can be a stressful, fast-paced place. When we get home from a busy day at work, shopping, or running errands, it's nice to kick off our shoes and sit down in a restful home. If your house is in need of a calming makeover, here are 4 ways you can make your home feel more tranquil and harmonious.

Clean and Clear

A home can be made more relaxing when it is cleared of clutter. Mess lying on floors and surfaces and obstructed walkways can cause a person to become stressed, as a cluttered house usually leads to a cluttered mind. Keeping your home tidy will de-stress your mind because you will not be fretting about having to perform a big clean-up job or feel angry when you fall over a piece of clothing or a pair of shoes left lying on the hallway carpet.

A clean and tidy house promotes calm. Each day, keep on top of the clutter. Have a place for everything and put everything in its place. Once a day, vacuum quickly to pick up dirt and debris dropped throughout the day, clean the bathroom and kitchen worktops.

Consider cleaning the high-touch surfaces like hard-back chairs, doorknobs and light switches at least once in 3 days. These areas may seem clean to the naked eye but consider disinfecting them properly to eliminate bacteria and viruses dangerous to your health. Use alcohol disinfectant wipes with natural ingredients against germs that are safe both for your health and the environment.  Once a week or so, give your home a deep clean by dusting hard-to-reach places, mopping the floors, and changing bedding. To keep your home fresh and pristine, you may want to think about professional floor cleaning and deep cleaning of the upholstery and soft furnishings once or twice a year.

Soothing Scents

Inhaling relaxing scents such as lavender and rosemary will make you feel calm and relaxed. A pleasant-smelling home can do wonders for the brain. Buy some attractive scented candles, incense sticks, an oil burner, or a plug-in diffuser for your home and make it smell scent-sational.

Meditative Music 

Nothing promotes a feeling of calm and tranquility like some relaxing music. Panpipe tunes, slow tempo classical music, or nature sounds like water flowing, and bird songs are wonderful sounds to play on your stereo and spread through the house. If you live in the countryside, you could open a window and enjoy the chorus of the birds in your backyard.

Delightful Decor

The colors you paint the walls in your home can have a significant influence on your emotions. If you want your house to feel tranquil, you need to decorate it in relaxing colors such as cool blues and greens. Earthy, natural shades of yellow, grey, and brown are also calming colors.

Do not over-furnish your home – have plenty of space to move around. Do not cover your doors and windows with thick curtains or blinds because you want plenty of soft, natural light to illuminate your home rather than harsh artificial light. In the evening or on cloudy days, you can use a light fitted with a blue light bulb to promote calm rather than one with a white bulb.

Introduce soothing textures to your rooms. Soft faux fur rugs, large squishy cushions, and plush throw blankets provide warmth and coziness and give your home a cocoon-like appeal.
