(NC) Most of us are spending more time at home than ever before. With our spaces being used for both work and living, they should be as comfortable and calming as possible.  
Create a peaceful sanctuary in your home with these three easy tips:  

Spend time decluttering  

The adage “messy room, messy mind” rings even truer when you’re home all the time. It’s hard to feel relaxed when there is chaos in your space. Before you tackle the clutter, determine how much time you have. The last thing you want to do is run out of time and end up with an even bigger mess than you started with.

Consider dividing your space into manageable sections so you can declutter during the dedicated time. Clear and organize the clutter by donating, selling or keeping. Donate what you don’t need to a local charity, sell online using a social media platform and reorganize the items you want to keep. Don’t forget to clean and dust the new space you’ve uncovered.   

Plant power

Not only can plants help cleanse stale air and eliminate harmful toxins in a room, they can improve the aesthetic of your space. Consider a little greenery to turn around your everyday mood. Don’t have a green thumb? Choose potted plants or florals that are easy to care for, such as succulents or snake plants.

Colour your way to calm 

A fresh coat of paint in the right colour goes a long way towards creating a soothing space where you can relax. Design a peaceful retreat with calming hues such as whites, greys and creams. Try Beauti-Tone Paint’s Essential Whites Collection, which features a palette inspired by fresh sea air, rays of sunlight and sandy beaches.
