Décor for your mental space – how furniture can make you feel

How furniture can improve your mental health

Believe it or not, furniture and accessories can affect your mental health, as well as just being aesthetically pleasing! Your home should be your solitude, to help remove you from the stresses of work and everyday life. If you work from home, you can create a separate space from your office which is solely for relaxing.

Here’s how furniture can aid your mental health and help you unwind.

1. Brighten your day

Natural light is a great morale booster, especially after a long period of poor weather. As well as painting rooms in bright and neutral tones, you can also accentuate natural light by using accessories such as mirrors. Mirrors can double the amount of light that shines through your windows, depending on the angle they are positioned. Take a look at our Blanket Metal Floor Standing Mirror for example, not only does it make a statement, but it will help add that extra dose of brightness to the dullest of days! This mirror is currently available in gold and rose gold and would make a great addition to any space.

2. Create comfort

Sometimes you just want your own space so you can chill out and recharge; a comfy sofa is the focal point of your living room and is just what you need for having some time to relax. Whether you choose to spend time with family or friends (when it’s safe to do so) or be on your own, your sofa will have your back, literally! Feeling cosy and snuggled up into a plush sofa helps you restore your energy and provides a sense of warmth, just like our Avondale Sofa Velvet Sofa Set; not to mention how sleek and stylish it is!

3. Create an outdoor sanctuary

Creating a space outdoors to relax in the fresh air is the perfect tonic to ridding yourself of the day’s stresses. It has been proven that spending time outside in nature works wonders for our mental health. Being in nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, but it also contributes to your physical wellbeing, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. By creating a space outside where you can relax – free of distractions and spotting the pile of unfolded washing in the corner! Our 2 Seater Garden Sun Lounger is the perfect addition to any garden’s cosy corner that will have you feeling zen in no time

4. Add personal touches

Adding a personal touch will make you feel right at home – pardon the pun! Seeing your beloved accessories and ornaments that hold sentimental value will have a positive effect on your mental well-being. You can also buy a plant or two to add a natural element, or light your favourite scented candle after a long day; small additions like this will certainly make a positive impact on how you feel
