Ways to Make Your Home More Mindful When Renovating

A peaceful, mindful home design can make your life more relaxing because it allows you to make your space your own. It is easy to fall into a rut, but if you are thinking about upgrading your space, it pays to take some time to think about your design and how you can make it work for you.

Prepare for the Future

Mindful upgrades can help you be more present, but they can also help you prepare for the future. Some renovations make your home accessible if you were to become disabled. A home elevator is one example of this type of renovation because installing one means you no longer have to worry about whether you can use the stairs. A novel elevator can also add a touch of luxury to your home.

Focus on Your Flow

When your room seems to make sense and has a sense of order to it, it becomes easier to enjoy that space. If you love trying new recipes, you may want to optimize your cooking space by placing the stove, sink, and fridge nearby. On the other hand, if you love entertaining, you might want to focus on an open floorplan. You can even bring the outdoors inside by making sure you can see the outside from any point indoors. If you are worried about a space that is too open and undefined, you can use furniture and area rugs to differentiate between areas.

Let in Plenty of Natural Light

Depending on your project, you might be able to adjust windows or add skylights to allow more light to enter. You might find that removing some walls allows more light to enter certain spaces. Going for a light color scheme allows natural light to bounce off these areas, giving your space a brighter feel. You can even use glass and mirrors to reflect light across the room.

Increase Storage

No matter how large or small your room, it’s important to make sure you use the space as efficiently as possible. Sometimes when you renovate, you will have to leave a space the same size because of existing structural features that can’t be changed. But adding in built-in storage, such as closets and shelving, allows you to access your items while reducing the appearance of clutter. You can even add in a window seat with extra storage underneath for meditation.

Designate Certain Areas to Be Stations

It’s frustrating when you can’t find items around the house when you need them, and this source of stress can reduce mindfulness. When you have to dig through clutter to seek out your items, it becomes even more frustrating. But when you renovate, you have a chance to fix this issue. You can allocate certain spaces to be stations. You might allocate part of the front entryway to act as a mudroom, where you store your shoes, keys, and coats. If you are fixing up your kitchen, you can create a coffee station, a baking area, and an eating space.
