Family togetherness and peace can sometimes be difficult and hard to maintain, but it is definitely one of the best things that you can build in life. One of the key elements of having a successful family is to have a peaceful, serene and relaxing home environment, where family members can always feel safe and sound.

We’ve got some tips on how to create and maintain a serene home enironment.

Why Do We Want A Serene Home?

The first question that pops-up is why would people even want to have a serene family home? There are multiple reasons for this, so let’s take a look:

Need a rest after a busy day – if you’re working the whole day, you usually want to come home and enjoy some peace and quiet with your family. Coming home to chaos is exhausting and tiring.

Children like peace too – even though children are restless, especially when they are young, sometimes they also need to take a break and enjoy some peace, or play some games on their own.

Reducing stress levels – all of us face different kinds of stress every day, so being in a family home should be the place where you can remove that stress and rest for the next day.

How to Do It?

What are the most common ways to create the most serene home for your family?

1. Put Some Thought into Decorating Your Home

Because of Covid-19, which has increased our reliance on working from home, our homes have started to become more important in our everyday life. Because of that, there is a need for comfort and a sense of peace, which can only be achieved if you put some thought into choosing the right interior design elements for your home.

This also includes choosing high-quality furniture. It is important to emphasise wood as one of the long-lasting materials, which also gives a traditional and warm effect of comfort in your home.

2. Importance of Choosing Long-Lasting Furniture

It is especially important to carefully choose elements for rooms where we spend the most time with our family.
This means that you should consider getting a top-quality dining room table and chairs, so your entire family can enjoy time together. There are some materials, such as wood, stone, or even leather, that last longer, and give your home a natural serenity.

3. Try to Separate Your Children

Even though children usually like to run around the house, sometimes they also need their personal time to blow off some steam and rest. Therefore, if you can afford it, each child should have their own separate area or room, so they can rest and refuel. They should have a relaxing bedroom, which can help enhance their mood.
Include children in decorating their own rooms, since, after all, they are the ones who will spend most of their time there.

4. Everything Has Its Place

The statement that some people like to live in organised chaos is definitely wrong. No one likes chaos, and everyone prefers that everything has its place. Every piece of furniture can fulfill a specific need, such as a laundry basket, shoebox, bookshelf etc.
When designing your home make sure everything has its purpose and special place.

5. Keep Up Your Regular House Routine

To avoid creating chaos in your family home, you should always try to keep up with the regular house routine, such as cleaning, doing dishes, laundry, and similar. It is really a weight off your chest when you know that all of this is done and that you can simply relax and chill.
Also, following a specific house cleaning routine can help you bond with your family members, and teach your children useful habits.

6. Remove Unnecessary Stuff

Another good way to avoid chaos in a family home is to declutter your entire home and remove stuff that is completely unnecessary.
When it comes to decluttering your home, the KonMari method can help. It is a simple, and yet very efficient method you can use to organise your home and get rid of stuff you don’t need.

It’s developed by Marie Kondo, and it follows six simple steps:

  • Show the will to tidy your home
  • Know what kind of life you want to have
  • Before everything, remove unnecessary things
  • Create different categories, and clean by category instead of by room
  • Stick to the premade order
  • Make sure to create an enjoyable system

This will increase the space you have for other things, and make you feel satisfied and relaxed, without having to worry too much about useless stuff.

Shrinking your living space is also not a good idea, since, in order to feel peaceful and relaxed, people need to feel like they are free.

If you clutter yourself with too much furniture and other things, you will eventually start to feel trapped in your own home, which will make spending time in it a living hell.

7. Create Personal Comfort Zones

Everyone needs to have some personal space, a comfort zone of some sort, in order to rest after a busy day at work, or just to stay away from all the chaos for a short amount of time.
Always try to designate some room or area in your home which will only be your personal comfort zone. It can be a personal office or gaming room. Whatever helps you release stress.

  • I’ve found a little bit often is the only way I have been able to conquer my chaos – not that I am anywhere near done, I just feel like I have a little bit of a better grip on my house nowadays – I’ve been gradually plugging away at it and getting through my chores list – it’s amazing how much progress you can make with little wins!

  • I watched a few YouTube clips of Marie Kondo’s which looked fascinating. I borrowed my friend’s copy of Marie’s book & was only able to get through about 6 pages,
    She couldn’t possibly have kids
    She mustn’t own much or replaces her ‘things’ often.

  • I culled recently and it was so cathartic. I got rid of so much. Stuff that others had given me that I didn’t like but felt I needed to keep. Stuff I had no idea I still had. I just god rid of stuff and it was great. I also like to keep things tidy — organised space/home, organised mind vs chaos if things are messy. I do like to create peaceful looking zones for each of us and I’m loving the process.
