How to Make Your Home a Restful Space

 
 
It’s easy to be envious of larger homes with the luxury of space — something dense living rarely allows for. Everyone needs a little rest and relaxation. A comfortable refuge from crowds, traffic and the everyday hustle and bustle is essential to feeling at ease in the city.
 
No matter the size of your home, it’s possible to make it feel like a refreshing place where you can get away. Even small tweaks can help you start transforming your space into something more calming.
 
Follow these simple tips to boost your at-home relaxation:
 

Reclaim Your Space.

Remove unnecessary items by paring things down to what’s essential. Work through your home room by room, searching each nook and cranny to identify items that you don’t need (or want) so you can donate or discard them.
 

Liven Things Up With Greenery.

Plants can make your space feel alive. There are options for any area in your home, from a lush bedroom fern that needs a little indirect light to a beautiful orchid that will thrive in the humidity of your bathroom..
 

Upgrade Your Linens.

High-quality bedding can add hotel-like comfort and luxury to any home. Find new sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers that match your taste and help you sleep easier.
 

Give Your Walls a Refresh.

An accent wall — or a fully painted room — can bring color to any home. Calming, neutral colors such as light gray, pale blue, lavender or sage green make your environment feel more relaxed.
Find the right lighting.
 
Bring in natural light wherever possible. If your window views aren’t the greatest, you can hang sheer curtains to filter the brightness. When evening arrives, use lamps, candles and strands of lights as cozier alternatives to harsh overhead lighting.
