As the old adage goes, home is where the heart is. Be they apartments, houses, flats or house-shares, the places in which we live exist as little reflections of our personalities. These spaces have the power to influence our moods, facilitating relaxation, socialising and oh-so-precious alone time. For these reasons, it is important that the places in which we spend our down time are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also comfortable and practical.

Of all the rooms in a house or apartment, it is likely that the living room or lounge area is the place you choose to unwind and put your feet up after a long day at work. However, there comes a time when it is necessary to breathe new life into a space. Perhaps you’ve just moved or maybe it’s just time for a change. Either way, you may be wondering how you can create a relaxing environment that reflects your personality and feels like home.

Here are a few quick tips to help you to create a relaxing living space.

Comfortable Furniture

First on the list is comfortable furniture. This may seem obvious but it is crucial to the creation of a relaxing environment. There is no need to spend a fortune on brand new expensive furniture. If you’re on a tighter budget, second hand stores often stock hidden gems, you just need a keen eye.

Consider the basics first, such as a comfortable sofa, a low coffee table and a good lamp. With just a few simple pieces, a room will begin to feel whole. Once these bits are sorted, you can move onto some lighter furnishings and ornaments.


Next up is a must for nature lovers and interior design enthusiasts alike. Incorporating pot plants into a space is a brilliant way to introduce a sense of natural calm and aesthetic appeal simultaneously.

Whether you choose a few smaller plants or a larger one to act as a focal point, there are endless benefits to adding plants to a space. Just don’t forget to water them!

Shutters & Blinds

Finally, if there is one way to add an element of calm and relaxation to a space, it’s high-quality shutters or blinds. Here at Blinds Of All Kinds, we stock a huge selection of made to measure blinds and wooden shutters.
