The Impact of Décor On Mental Health

There are many studies focusing on the intricate connections between interior design and mental health. Colour, the availability of natural light, textures and patterns all work together to uplift and get individuals in a better mind state (an obvious essential for the completion of a successful treatment). Keeping spaces well-organised and airy results in a much better mental predisposition. Proper organisation and aesthetics within a room result in sensations of peacefulness and mindfulness. Find out how the interiors of your home have the power to affect your mood and uplift you. Read on!

Revisit your Color Scheme

Something as simple as introducing splashes of your favourite colour in the interior design can make you feel happier each time you come inside the space. If you’d like to do something a bit more scientific and extensive, focus on the psychology of colour. This is the basis of colour therapy – a methodology believing in the power of colour to affect different parts of the body (including the mind) in very specific ways. Putting a fresh coat of paint over the wall can immediately make the space feel warmer, more welcoming and exciting. This simple effect demonstrates just how much of an effect interior design has on the human mind.

Introduce Natural Light

Light therapy is a recognised therapeutic approach within psychology. Research suggests that natural light affects brain chemicals linked to mood and sleep. As a result, natural light can reduce seasonal affective disorder symptoms and even anxiety.

You can maximise natural light without having to open up spaces for new windows. The use of reflective surfaces like mirrors, for example, can redirect light to parts of the flat that seem dark and gloomy right now. If you don’t know what it takes to maximise light in your space, a Singapore home interior design company with enough experience will be capable of offering at least one viable solution to achieve the desired effect.

Destress with Greenery

Nature is peaceful and nurturing. It creates a soothing space that you’d probably love to spend hours in. the easiest way to accomplish the goal is to introduce low-maintenance potted plants in your environment.

Include Positive Affirmations

Use photographs or posters that make you feel happy in every single room. You can even create your own art and hang it on the walls to remind yourself of your goals, dreams and aspirations.

Turn the living room wall into a canvas that reminds you of what matters to you in life. Have a favorite affirmation or a mantra spelled out on the wall in large letters. This message will subconsciously stimulate you to pursue whatever it is that you crave in life.


Don’t be afraid to seek change. If you’re unhappy with your life or work environment right now, you can modify some key elements without having to spend a ton of money on those.
