3 Ways To Turn Your House Into A Home Sanctuary

by Shea Homes on August 29, 2017

Life can get hectic between work, family, and all of the other demands that are thrown at you. While taking a staycation can help you get away from it all, you can also create a daily escape within the comfort of your own home, to eliminate ongoing planning. Creating a personal relaxation space at home will motivate you to get through any busy day and make you fall in love with coming home. Here are three ways you can transform spaces of your home into your own personal relaxation sanctuary.

Create A Cozy Living Room

Having an inviting and relaxing living room space will help you unwind after a long day. Update the space with a soft rug and a comfy chair, bench, or couch that you can sink into. Focus on neutral color pieces and add small accents in your favorite color. Liven up the space with a leafy house plant or colorful bouquet of flowers. Leave your curtains open to allow the natural light to come in, but also have a nice standing or tabletop lamp for soft light once the sun goes down. Top it off with your favorite cozy blanket and a warm cup of tea and let your worries melt away.

Don’t have the time or budget to update your whole living room? You can still follow these tips on a smaller scale and create a personal oasis by building a reading nook wherever you have space in your house. Check out these cozy spaces as inspiration for creating your own living room sanctuary.


 Bring the Spa Home 

Feel as though you just left the spa every time you step out of the bathroom. Hop into a large soaking tub or steam bath to help soak away your worries every night. Light some candles and escape into the world of a good book. Soft lighting and a cozy towel and bathmat will help ease you back to the real world when you are done with your bath. Not a bath person? Glass shower doors will make your bathroom space feel larger and more modern. Use a natural tone palette and use colorful towels and lush plants to highlight the space.

Create an Outdoor Oasis

After a long day in the office, unplug and spend some quality time with the great outdoors. Build a relaxing sanctuary in your backyard or on your patio with comfortable seating and colorful pillows. Let the sounds of nature ease your mind by centering the space around a small water feature or fire pit. Add some string lights and an outdoor rug to bring the comforts of the indoors outside. Grab your favorite cozy blanket and escape reality by gazing up at the stars.
