How To Create a Relaxing Space at Home

If you’re looking to turn your home into a sanctuary, take note of the following tips on how to amp up the relax-o-factor in your bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas.

1. Control the temperature

Krissy and Heath’s homestead bedroom makes the most of the natural elements by allowing airflow through the five separate doors – no need for aircon with a system like this!

Tip: Consider the sun and wind when designing the placement of your bedroom and its windows and doors. You can often take advantage of nature to warm and cool your room – and save money on your energy bills while you’re at it.

2. Embrace high end finishes

Nicki and Jason’s ensuite bathroom is reminiscent of a five-star hotel, and this makes it the perfect place to kick back and relax in a spa-like environment.

Tip: Splurge on luxurious tiles and hardware to build your ultimate bathroom.

3. Find fab furniture

Liz and Tim’s bubble chairs are the ultimate hang out spot… literally. What better way to relax than in these iconic suspended seats?

Tip: Don’t be afraid of designer furniture – just make sure you test it first to ensure it’s super comfortable.
