Do you ever feel like your life is just too busy and hectic that you never get any quiet time for yourself? Are you struggling to get some time to relax and reflect? Does it feel like you never get any quiet time in your own home because of the TV and other gadgets? It might be time to add something new to your home. A home needs to be your safe haven, you need to be able to unwind and get yourself prepared for the challenges that come your way. Just as much as you need to have a workspace in your home and a dining area, as well as a space to entertain; you also need a quiet space for you to meditate, relax, read and do whatever it is that will help you recharge your batteries.
Self-care is very important, it’s really hard to enjoy the present moment and be present with your loved ones when you’re carrying massive amounts of stress around. It doesn’t have to be a day at the spa, or a vacation. Sometimes all you need is to go into your private space away from everyone else to recover and rest. It works even better when you set aside that space and make it your own. It will feel more authentic and special.
How do you even create a space for you to do that in your home? If your home seems to already be packed, can you even have a relaxing space? You don’t have to have a large space to achieve this. Sometimes it’s as simple as a comfy chair and some candles. You can even use an outdoor space and just make it very comfortable and you’re ready to relax. Here are a few ideas to give you some inspiration to make your own quiet space.
Figure out what the space is For
Relaxation means different things to different people. For some people it’s a glass of wine and a book, for others it’s a new Netflix show, and for others it’s yoga and meditation. The very first thing you need to figure out is what you want to do with your space so that you know what to put in it. Knowing the purpose of the room will make it a lot more useful for your life. If it’s meditation, candles a comfortable seat will be great, and if it’s TV viewing, a nice big screen TV and comfy seating will be good. If you’re more into reading, you can install a small bookshelf to keep all your favorite reads!
To get an idea of what you want to have in your meditation and quiet space, ask yourself these questions;
- Do you need to have gadgets in the space or do you want it to be device-free?
- How much space do you have for this room?
- Will you need a yoga mat or a rug?
- How will you make sure the space stays quiet?
Soothing Paint Colors
Nothing makes a room feel relaxing like choosing the right paint color. With just a few hours of work from home interior painters, you can have a space that soothes and calms you after a long and stressful week. The best colors for a soothing calm space are blues, soft grays and neutral colors.
Have you noticed how plants just bring a new energy and vibe into a space? That’s because they bring the outdoors in, and according to many experts being around plants and being in nature is one of the best ways to relax and calm down. Invest in plants that make you feel really serene and quiet, plants that remind you of being in a beautiful garden. This doesn’t have to cost you a lot of cash and a great look and feel can be achieved very easily.
Candles have two benefits in one, they bring a relaxing ambience into a space, and if they are scented they can invoke a feeling of calm if you choose the right flavor. You can also bring in different colors and get some decorative elements through candles, and the biggest bonus is they don’t have to cost you a lot of money!

By bringing some calm into your spaces, you can rebalance yourself and find a way to recharge your batteries to feel better, and just like that you’re ready to face another day!
