The summer has always been the perfect season to tackle those at-home DIY projects that you’ve been putting off...
Every kitchen needs cabinets, but not every cabinet opens as effectively as we would like; perhaps there’s a cupboard which opens the wrong way, a door which swings shut when you want it to stay open, or that one corner unit that houses all the junk that no-one needs because it’s impossible to get into to...
  There are few things more aggravating than the constant slamming of cabinets and doors, but your home shouldn’t be a stressful atmosphere...


Peaceful Bedroom Design


For a room that screams peaceful atmosphere, almost everyone will look towards perfecting their bedroom, whilst some will think of their study and a lucky few will think of a personal library. In this blog, we’re catering to the masses by focusing on the bedroom, but there will undoubtedly be a few tips in here that you can apply to other rooms in your house that need a little extra peace in their design. We’re thinking soft-close doors, heavy blankets and clean colours for a room that you can really relax in.


Scandi Design


Perhaps linked to the rise of Ikea and the affordability of flat-pack furniture, Scandi designs have been in for a while but they're here to stay for the foreseeable future. There’s more to Scandi furniture than some heart-warming memories huddled around a bookcase that resembles a 3D jigsaw more than the desired piece of furniture, however, the minimalism that is at the heart of Scandi is perfect for a room where you want to remove distraction and pursue peace and relaxation.

We have plenty of options to help you achieve space saving solutions, such as the Blum Space Tower which is both a sleek and elegant storage solution for your home. For extra snazzy storage, you may also wish to adorn your tower with some LED strip lights. Using motion sensor lights can help you to illuminate the contents in the dark when you pull the drawers out.

By creating more space in your bedroom, you are also making space for activities such as yoga which is good for improving flexibility, heart health and mental fortitude.



Clean Colours


Trending for 2019 – and likely 2020 too – clean and neutral colours are a good choice for a home that you can relax in. In the bedroom, this means off-white, grey, or sandy coloured walls, combined with ethically sourced wood-effect tiles to match your wood or wood-effect furniture. These clean colours are perfect for helping you to relax because they avoid distraction.

It is well known that different cultures have their own meaningful associations with colours that result in differing emotions resulting from how those colours are read and understood. White instils a feeling of peace in most people, but in the world of home designing, pure white can, in fact, lead to a lot of stress in trying to keep the room free from visible dirt. This means that using greys can provide more relaxation in the home, despite colour theory.



Soft Close Doors


If you own young children, then you’ll understand that the antithesis to a peaceful home is a slammed door, which is why you might choose to invest in some soft close BLUM blumotion hinges. Soft close hinges take you one step closer to avoiding being woken up by someone using the bathroom in the middle of the night.



Heavy Furnishings


To create a room that is not only peaceful but also warm and comforting, you should consider using some heavy furnishings such as weighty gravity blankets, thick shag pile rugs and comfy counterpanes. You may also want to consider investing in some black-out curtains if you struggle to achieve a lie-in when the sun’s up.

If you are considering going all-in on heavy furnishings, we also recommend having an excess of pillows for a bedtime snuggle.





Real or fake, having a view of a potted plant can also bring peace and relaxation to your bedroom. This is widely known as biophilia, which refers to human affinity with plant and natural life. Living in a house that feels quite artificial and electronic can deprive people of their need for natural aspects in the home. We’re not suggesting you undertake a digital detox but adding one or two plants might help your home (and you) to find balance.

If you find that adding a few flowers has indeed helped your bedroom, then you might want to take the natural elements in your bedroom further by increasing the amount of natural light available in your room or increasing the air flow so that your room always smells fresh.

Once you have achieved the perfect peaceful bedroom, you will soon find yourself more rested in the mornings, and you may even find yourself spending more time in there. More than just a room where you go to sleep, your bedroom could be your new reading room or exercise space. Design a space that has meaning for your life.
