Creating a happy home: Top tips for mood-boosting interiors

Is your home a healthy, happy environment? If not this could be down to your home interior. Did you know that the right interior can boost the mood?

If you’re looking to create a more harmonious living environment for you and your family, a little revamp of your current décor could be just what’s needed.

  1. 1.     Focus on the lighting

Lighting is one of the major things that can affect your mood. In winter when there’s very little natural light, many people suffer with a condition known commonly as SAD (or Seasonal Affective Disorder).

By introducing various light sources into the home, it can really help to boost your mood. Focus on chandeliers, dimmable lighting and candles. You can even add wooden French doors to help bring more light into the home.

  1. 2.     Don’t be too minimalistic

One of the most modern forms of home décor is minimalism. While this can help to create a more organised and cleaner living space, it doesn’t do much for your mood.

If you create a room that’s too minimalistic it can actually really bring you down. You need to make sure you have a few items scattered around the room that help you to feel grounded. Photos, books and creative projects are all great for adding a personal touch to a room.

  1. 3.     Add wooden elements

Wood has a natural, warm look. There’s an endless supply of wooden furniture and accessories you can invest in. Adding little elements of nature into the home can really help to boost your mood.

  1. 4.     Paint the room

The simplest way to boost your mood via your interior is to give the room a fresh coat of paint. If you currently have neutral coloured walls, paint them a warmer colour. Browns, reds and gold will all help to brighten up the home and help to create a happier environment.

  1. 5.     Move everything around 

If you really don’t have the budget to spend on updating your interiors, moving things around can really help. A change of scenery is sometimes all you really need. Read up on the principles of Feng Shui and you could soon restore harmony back to your home in next to no time.
