Although rooms decorated in a chic or vintage style have a unique charm, there is something in pure lines and open, light spaces that acts soothing on people.
Decorating spaces in a zen style implies clean lines and the minimal use of furniture, with the aim of opening up a space and helping us relax. Clearing out the space and using natural materials and soft lighting can turn your home into an oasis of peace. Because of that, keep in mind that when decorating your space, make it simple.
Minimalist decoration goes a long way. If you decorate your home in such a way and keep it clean, you will create a pleasant atmosphere for you and for all the people living with you, if there are any.
A light interior, possibly in white, will turn any home into a sanctuary from the outside world and make it visually bigger and more comfortable, even for small rooms.
Earthy tones, on the other hand, like brown, beige, and orang tones and natural materials will make your home seem more natural and neutral, and in touch with nature.
An element that you shouldn’t skip in a Zen home are natural plants, because it is well known that they purify the air, they reduce stress, and improve our energy. There is a great choice of many different plants you can use in your home, just make sure you do your research before you get them, because not all plants will work in your environment.
Lighting is very important. If you don’t have the right lighting in your space, even if you have a wonderful home, it won’t look nearly as good, because the lighting is poor. A good lighting opens up the space, it increases our energy and improves our mood, and it just makes everything look better and be more functional.
Another very important thing is that you keep your home clean. Your counters and shelves, your bathroom and all your other rooms, need to be kept clean. All the little things that you don’t use daily should be moved away from direct eyesight somewhere where they can be used, but won’t create a mess.
A Zen garden is also an element that can be put to great use in a Zen home, obviously. Decorating sand in miniature gardens is a great thing if you don’t have the space for a real life garden. It is something very relaxing, so if you are looking to build yourself a Zen home, it something you should definitely think about getting.
On a final point, natural materials will make the home feel more comfortable, and you can bring them in the space without needing to renovate or do any major work around your home.If you just bring a little wood or some other natural material, your home will feel much more relaxing and wonderful. It doesn’t matter if it is in the form of blinds, or shelves, any natural materials will make things better.
