Incorporate Self-Care Spaces into Your Home

Are you considering investing in green and sustainable interior design renovations for your existing or new home? Plan well and make your home a harmonious environment to escape from modern life.

With our ever-changing world, it is important to create homes that are our sanctuaries. Our homes should feel safe, so we can escape from daily pressures, disconnect from work, technology and the forever-negative news.

People today are relying more than ever on their home environments to elevate their moods and sense of well-being. When renovating, building or buying a home consider the ambiance you want your home to convey and incorporate special rooms that are tailored to helping you feel good. Whether it is a meditation/yoga room, library or personalized spa-inspired master bath.

Vacations are beneficial for getting away from stresses and routines, but on an everyday basis, our brain needs to get relief from recurring routines, just as much as the body does. This is where specially designed rooms such as a home library, for example, is desirable to some people. A home library gives bibliophiles a place to retreat into pleasurable books, which has become a valued luxury.

Adding a stylish library to your home provides some luxuriousness. It can be as elaborate as you can dream, with a bar and an area to entertain company after dinner, or it can be simple as a small, quiet, and comforting space with a wonderful view to the outdoors, allowing the use of natural daylight to come in and a view of the night sky.

Besides providing a place to read and relax, a home library can include storage, places to display treasured art pieces and collectables. It allows you the opportunity to create a special space that exhibits your character and personality, whether your home is modern, transitional or traditional in style.

Make your home sustainable, healthy and your personal sanctuary. It should be a place where you look forward to going to at the end of the day. Taking care of your health and well-being is part of what green and sustainable interior design is about. Wellness is what “green design” has long meant for environmental sustainability.
