Create a Relaxing Environment With Our Serenity Spa Home Collection
23 April 2020
Your home should feel like a safe haven where you can shut out day to day stresses. From the living room to the dining room to the bedroom, each area should be a peaceful mecca that reflects your personality and helps you to unwind after a long day.
In this article, the team at B&M will provide a few hints and tips that you can use to create a relaxing home environment. We’ll include items from our stunning Serenity Spa range to boost your sense of wellbeing.
Physical comfort is one of the most important factors of a relaxing environment. Surround yourself with things that are soft or tactile - particularly in the bedroom, which should be the most chilled-out space in your home.
Bedsheets with a high thread count are smooth and silky to the touch and can help you feel truly indulgent, while throw pillows don’t just look great - they can also be arranged to support your head and neck perfectly when settling in for the night, combatting aches and pains.
B&M Top Tip: Distribute blankets and other cozy items throughout your home, so you’re always able to wrap yourself up and have a little “me” time.
Add some green
According to feng shui practitioners, green is the colour of growth, healing and new beginnings. It creates a sense of balance and equilibrium and reminds us of the natural world, sending us “back to basics”.
Why not arrange some attractive house plants around your spaces and use subtle green paint colours to help you feel energised and well-rested? We love to complement them with natural materials and textures.
Make it smell great
Adding your favourite scent can really create a sense of peace and tranquility that is personal to you.
Displaying fresh flowers will brighten up a space as well as providing a natural perfume. Otherwise, you could burn some natural oils such as lavender or chamomile. These scents are known to aid in relaxation and sleep.
Turn up the tunes
Stimulate your senses with your favourite sounds. Invest in a few devices for playing music and take the time to create a calm playlist or two for when you need to relax.
Make room to meditate
Peaceful environments work best when you’re trying to clear your mind, so clear out the clutter and surround yourself with just a few simple and attractive features and accessories.
Natural light can help us feel refreshed, so try to meditate in a room with a window. Just sit comfortably, close your eyes and focus on your breathing for ten minutes or so. As you get better at it, your stressful thoughts will melt away - leaving calm and relaxation.
You can create a peaceful home by prioritising comfort, using green where you can, adding your favourite scents, listening to calming music and trying a little meditation. We hope that these tips work for you - happy chilling!
