Go for Brighter Colors

Bright colors such as lavender, blue, yellow or bright orange, etc. can recreate the feeling of natural light and can add up to some brightness in case of low light or darker rooms.

It is advisable to install skylights. The sun rays from the skylights can improve the aesthetics of the room. The amount of natural light in a room affect people’s mood positively. It makes them feel more alive and vibrant. Smaller rooms with windows are more preferable than larger rooms with no windows. Glass can be used in making windows instead of wood or other opaque materials for more transparency. These windows can be covered with frosted films or can be tinted in case of privacy concerns. A few light bulbs can replicate natural light, which can help increase the atmosphere of rooms with no windows.

Ambiance

Research backs the fact that being closer to nature helps maintain physical well-being. It is believed to reduce blood pressure, heart rate and also stress-causing hormones in our body.

Contemplating fishes in an aquarium or fish tanks also have a remarkable impact on reducing stress and anxiety. Hence owning an aquarium in your home or workspace can be highly beneficial.

Positioning and Rearrangement of Furniture for De-stressing

Rearranging the furniture in different ways can help to stimulate the brain in new ways.

Get Sofas that can accommodate both you and your guests, so that it will allow you to have good social relations. Chairs with shoulder-height backs with soft cushions are more comfortable. You can personalize the space with curtains and lamps that go well with your wall color. Rattan furniture is usually meant for outdoors, but you can use it to decorate the indoors too if you wish to get a natural vibe.

Family photos and crafted things look good and bring calmness to the room. Artwork should highlight your openness to different cultures.
