Five home décor tips to give you a mental health boost

May 13th 2024

The design and décor of your home can influence your mood and overall mental health.

Since 2020, we have been spending far more time at home than usual, so making your home calm and comfortable is vital.

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, Solidor is sharing five home décor tips to help give you a boost this May.

1. Choose practical but energetic colours

Think about how you want to feel in your home – what colour gives you that ‘I’m home’ feeling?

Choose uplifting and mood-boosting tones throughout your home that you’ll be happy with all year round. Solidor has a range of 27 colours that can help to brighten your front door.

From the vibrant Tangerine and Buttercup Yellow to the more understated Pottery Blue and Chartwell Green, we have a colour to suit your style.

2. Feel more comfortable in your living space

We all put physical safety first when it comes to closing windows and locking doors, but what about emotional safety?

Emotional safety is extremely important. It refers to feeling secure enough to truly express yourself with others and to show up as your most authentic self.

Making sure that your home is organised and reflects your personality can help you to feel safer and more comfortable in your living space. Add personal touches to your décor and include lots of storage to make your environment feel logical and in order.

3. Add a dose of nature to your home

Spending time in nature is great for improving your mental health, so why not bring nature to you?

Accessorise your home with potted plants and hanging baskets – both on your doorstep and indoors.

You can go one step further and use nature-inspired colours in your décor – like Solidor’s Forest Green and Pistachio – to help bring the essence of the outdoors to your living space.

4. Prioritise time with your pets

At Solidor, pets have a special place in our hearts and in our homes. Pets can have a positive impact on mental well-being, and therefore incorporating them into the design of your home makes total sense.

If you have a home office, add a bench or chair for your furry friend to sit on while you work. It will bring you a sense of calm throughout your working day.

5. Make full use of natural light

According to UCLA Health, natural light can help to improve your mood, sleep quality, and mental well-being.

Opt for a Solidor with glass panels to brighten up your hallway. We have a range of patterned glazing available, from simple and elegant designs like the ‘Diamond’ to the big and bold ‘Dorchester’.

Painting your walls, with a lighter colour can also help to reflect light in your space.
