11 Zen Home Décor Tips
to Keep You Centered


By Elliot Caleira

Your home should be a place of solace where you can rest and unwind after a long day. The design of the interior setting will ultimately determine how much you can feel at peace in the space. If you want to make your home feel zen, there are a few important tips to follow to keep you centered.

  1. Hide Your Electronics
    Electronics are proven to reduce the melatonin levels in the body and can make it difficult to sleep at night. Spending time watching television or using a tablet before bed will cause you to be exposed to shortwave light that will cause your body to believe that it's the daytime. Avoid using any of the electronics for one to two hours before going to bed.
  2. Use Earthy Colors
    You can create a calming environment with earthy colors that include beige, white, and gray. You can also add pops of color with orange or blue that is added for plenty of contrast.
  3. Incorporate a Water Feature
    A small water fountain or an aquarium that holds fish will contribute to the zen environment and will incorporate a touch of the outdoor setting to the interior setting. The sound of moving water will also reduce your stress and can allow you to spend more time meditating.
  4. Incorporate Natural Light
    Keep window coverings simple and allow plenty of natural light into each room. Avoid using blackout curtains and opt for bamboo window treatments when decorating. Taking advantage of natural light will allow you to maintain a normal sleep rhythm and will also make it easy to enjoy the views of the outdoors. You can also consider tearing down walls that are also blocking natural light in the home.
  5. Remove Clutter
    Clutter can make it easy to feel stressed when you want to relax. Remove excess items that are present on the bookshelves or countertops and use clever storage solutions to hide your personal belongings. If you're relocating to a new home, purge each room and get rid of items that haven't been used in the last year before hiring a Dallas moving company to transport your items.
  6. Do the Cleaning
    No one wants to spend all day cleaning. No one wants to spend hours each day scrubbing floors. Here are Simple Hacks to Clean Your House the Smart Way that decrease the time you need to spend cleaning.
  7. Change the Light Bulbs
    When you can't use natural light at night, opt for replacing your halogen bulbs, which can affect your quality of sleep due to a blue light that is emitted. Using LED lights that produce white light, you'll have an easier time falling asleep at night.
  8. Create Symmetry
    Symmetry will create plenty of balance in your home and will make the space look professionally designed. Consider placing a plant on each side of your dresser or adding the same lamp on each nightstand next to your bed. Symmetry will allow your mind to relax and can evoke a sense of harmony.
  9. Add Plenty of Plants
    Houseplants will improve your health and can purify the air in the home. Add rubber plants, ferns, and ivies for clean oxygen that you'll be breathing in during the day and night.
  10. Keep it Simple
    The key to creating a Zen home is minimalism, which will prevent you from becoming distracted by your surroundings. Opt for using one vase in your kitchen instead of two.
  11. Use Low Furniture
    Low furniture will free up extra space in the room and will prevent the room from feeling cramped. Use the same height of furniture to make it have harmony.
  12. Add Natural Fabrics
    Natural fabrics are extremely comfortable and can be used on your couch pillows or throw blankets. Opt for using linen or wool materials and add a fur carpet on the floor to make the space appear more relaxing.
