When your home is a place that you can retreat to, shut the world out and spend some quality time away from it all, it can really help with daily life. Having a stress-free and peaceful haven is something that is a great way to help your mental health. If you want to focus on creating a special haven of your own this year, here are some of the things that you can do…

Have a clear out – Having a space that is clutter free automatically helps you to relax. A bedroom that is cosy and clean and a bathroom that is a special space without mountains of stuff in it! Clearing out your clutter may seem a daunting job, but it is one that can be done in stages, so you certainly don’t have to tackle it all in one go.

Treat yourself – Some new furniture or accessories for your rooms will help to create a space that is uniquely your own as well as a place that looks pleasing. If you have things that have seen better days, then consider replacing them or upcycling them even! Statement pieces of furniture make a big difference – a new sofa can change the room, as can a new dining table like these Connubia Calligaris tables.

Use Aromatherapy – Smell can make a big difference in the home – using smells to create a comforting and pleasant environment is something that many people do – you can use candles, essential oils or diffusers to do this.
