The interior design choices to boost your mental health

Interior design usually prioritises aesthetics: from clean minimalist kitchens, to dazzling light-filled lounges, it’s all about the looks. However, it is possible to boost your mental health through your interior design: from establishing agency and control over your surroundings, to just grabbing a feather duster.

Whether you’re looking to redesign your own pad or looking for homes for sale in Grants Pass Oregon, here’s how to make the inside as great as the outside.

Tidiness

Yes, sorry, there’s no escaping this: can’t go redesigning your bedroom if it’s still covered in takeout cartons and yesterday’s coffee mugs.

Clutter and mess can be a double-edged sword. On one hand, it can encourage certain creatives to make unconventional mental connections in their work.

However, for most of us, it contributes to a sense of anxiety and chaos. A Princeton University study confirms this: they found that clutter makes it more difficult for a person to focus on a task.

Specifically, your visual cortex becomes overwhelmed by items not linked to the task at hand, making it more difficult to focus on an individual project.

Sunlight

Sunlight itself is a mood booster: organizing your room to maximize exposure to this revitalizing force is a fantastic way to start a redesign and help relax your mind.

Start off by evaluating what blocks light flowing into a room: do you have thick, heavy curtains? Even when wide open, these restrict light and add to a sense of enclosure, essentially bordering up the window.

Instead, look into other light control methods: shutters and blinds can be a stylish way to retain your privacy that also sits flush with the wall itself, minimizing the intrusion into the living space that you see with curtains.

I don’t know anyone who isn’t experiencing some form of pandemic fatigue.That’s just the reality. It would be nice to see one another’s faces, gather in large groups, attend concerts, travel like we used to (without fear), not have raw skin from washing so frequently, and just not have to be concerned about the virus. I know these examples are truer for some of us than others, and we have all been impacted by this virus.
