Achieve a Feel Good Home with Your 5 Senses

how to create the feel good home

We are firm believers that homes can be both stylistic and functional. But even more so than that, they should serve you and your family well. Creating a feel good home, by implementing design aspects that appeal to the five senses can elevate your home to the perfect oasis you deserve. 

 

Catch Your Eye

It’s no secret that the eyes are often the first thing to notice something in a home. What you see will help set the tone for how you feel each time you step into a room. Selecting colors right for the space, controlling light exposure, and keeping spaces clutter free are three quick and easy ways to completely transform a space.

With our expertise being in window coverings, we can work with you to suggest just the right ones for each room throughout your home. Oftentimes, each room has a slightly different lighting need. For bedrooms, it may look like blackout shades to help you catch a few extra minutes of sleep. In the dining room you may prefer a light sheer shade that can help diffuse the light, while still keeping it bright. Regardless of your window treatment preferences, our team of experts can help you to achieve that feel good home you desire.

 

Sounds of Home

Sounds can be such a soothing and serene addition to your home. If you’re craving an extra layer of cozy, it’s important to find the right sounds to add to the background. 

  • Use a speaker to play your favorite music throughout the house
  • A white noise machine or loud fan can help you fall into a deeper sleep 
  • Window treatments can help to buffer noises from neighbors and passing cars

Intentional Scents

Along with sights, scents are one of the common things people also notice quickly in a home. Daily life can tend to leave it’s tracks through different spaces, and sometimes that means leaving an unpleasant scent behind. Good news is there are several simple ways to fix that!

  • An essential oil diffuser or your favorite candles are a great pick me up 
  • Select cleaning products in fresh scents that you love
  • Pot some flowers, herbs, or houseplants around (some houseplants even help to purify the air quality)

A Touch of Comfort

Touch is another sense that can link directly to comfort and coziness. Adding layers of texture helps to tie a design all together, while also helping those within your home “feel good” all day long. Think about mixing and matching a few different textures, such as an area rug under the sofa with a wicker basket housing a chunky throw blanket. The choices are endless!

Keep Good Taste in Mind

Of course we can help you in finding your style taste, but keeping the sense of taste in mind is important too! After all, who doesn’t love a hearty meal shared around the dinner table? A few other ways you can keep your tastebuds satisfied are: 

  • Keeping a fruit bowl on the counter for a quick grab and go snack, and also a pretty pop of color
  • Make meals a family affair! Even down to the planning, get your family involved in planning, prepping, and of course partaking in the actual meal 
  • Keep your kitchen as the heart of the home by making it a welcoming place for everyone in your family
