Having physical space for yourself within your home can be very relaxing, especially if you have a full house. It is such a relief to escape all the brouhaha, and enter into your own ‘woman cave’ to get some work done. No matter the size of your space, there is something you can do to an area to make it feel more like you. Try these five ideas to make your space more you.
Separate your special space from everywhere else
This idea is the most obvious one because getting a space away from everyone else is as personal as it can get. If you have extra yard space, consider things like garden rooms, which can be furnished to your style and preference. There is more info out there that you can find on the types and what goes into them.
Add a mood board
In making your space more personal, don’t forget to add a reminder of your dreams and aspirations. Those are unique to you and adds to the ambiance, which indicates that that area is yours. Having a mood board reminds you of who you are, what you stand for, and what you’d like to achieve. The inspiration is very welcome, and you can change the information once you achieve them.
Create a gallery
This is where you fill your room with memories and other things you love. Pictures and even objects that trigger fun, exciting, and heartwarming memories care very much welcome. The fact that you want a space for yourself doesn’t mean you can’t add a few of the people around you. Your family and friends make an integral part of your everyday life, and so you can add a few images to remind you of them. You will feel their presence even when they are not there with you.
Add your favourite colours
Adding a touch of your favourite colours can bring some personality into an area. Whenever you walk into that room, no matter who you share it with, you’ll be reminded of yourself. If you like bold colors, then find a spot to paint that color or incorporate objects of that color inside. Do the same if you are a minimalist as well, and that area will feel more personal than ever.
Use fragrance diffusers
If you love scents, then it’ll be nice to have some of your favorite aroma lingering in your area. This can create a more relaxed environment for you to work, rest, exercise, or read better. The benefits of diffusers are endless, and it’ll do you some good to have some around your space.
It’s not a bad idea to want some alone time, but it shouldn’t be bland. Give your space some of your personality so that it’ll be more fulfilling spending time in it. It is even better if everybody knows about your personal area and doesn’t interrupt your time. If you have curious kids, put a creative sign on the door and reward them when they stay away temporarily and give you some space.
