City life is never easy – it’s fast paced, busy and quite challenging to keep up with. This is especially true for the residents of Singapore, who simply want to catch a break when they get home. So naturally, everyone wants their home to emulate an oasis of relaxation. A carefully crafted interior design is the best way to go about it. Let’s take a look at how you can make your homes as calming and relaxing as possible:
1. The right amount of lighting
The perfect balance of lighting is one of the key aspects in creating a fully relaxing aura. You cannot expect to feel fully at ease under the harsh glare of LEDs. Similarly, you cannot feel relaxed under a dull, badly lit space. So always make sure that your homes have just the right amount of lumens to be as comfortable as possible.
2. Fluid spaces
The fluidity of spaces basically means that your home should look spacious and be flexible enough in aesthetic. Anything too rigid and constraining can make you feel trapped. Therefore, be as boho chic and personalized with your spaces as possible. Go for your favorite decorations, display your precious trinkets and make your homes as fluid as possible.
3. Lots of closed storage
The thing about busy displays is that they can be hard to maintain, which is why lots of closed storage – i.e. built-in cabinets, shelves and more – are the recommended choice when you’re emulating a calming ambiance. They help keep all the physical clutter away while maintaining a solid, relaxing aura in any home interior.
4. Natural textures are the best
As far as textures are concerned, being as natural as possible is the best way to make your homes emulate an oasis of relaxation. If you take a look as this bathroom, the blue tiles emulate the running water at beaches while the white tiles emulate the sand. The overall look of this perfect combination is the epitome of relaxing!
5. Soft, relaxing hues
Lastly, you need to select the most relaxing color scheme for your home interiors in order to have a fully calming effect. All shades of blue are a go – however, the lighter you choose the better. Shades of blue have an inherent relaxing quality that can add an extra dose of happy tranquil to your home ambiance!
