How To Create A Relaxing Space In Your Apartment

relaxing space

Our everyday lives have become busier and busier. Most people are constantly on the go, which can be overwhelming. People are out of the house more and more so it’s important to create a relaxing space to come home to. Plus, it doesn’t have to be expensive. Take a look below and see how to create a relaxing space in your apartment that you look forward to coming home to. 

Flowers & Plants

Adding flowers can help to create a relaxing space, especially if they’re fresh flowers. While it might be difficult to stop and get flowers every week, you can also get smaller plants that don’t need a lot of care and that will last longer. Succulents are great plants to have in the home because they are low maintenance. All succulents need are to be placed in sunlight and watered every two to three weeks, sometimes even longer.

There are so many different types to choose from that you’re bound to find something that catches your eye. You can get ones that are vibrant in color or ones that are simply green. There are large ones and small ones. The pots they are planted in can be fun or modern, or you can change the pots they come in. The options are endless. 


Another way to create a relaxing space in your apartment is with candles. Candles can add fresh and soothing smells. However, if you don’t feel comfortable or simply don’t like candles and the scents they have, you can purchase battery operated candles. With a simple push of a button, the candle glow will shine, creating a relaxing and peaceful environment. No matter which candle you may get, the soft glow will transform your apartment into a peaceful setting. 

Remove Clutter

If you want to create a more relaxing apartment for yourself, you don’t have to buy anything to do so. Removing any clutter in your apartment can make it feel cleaner and more spacious, leading to a less cluttered mind as well. If you don’t believe me, think about the last time your apartment was a mess. It adds more stress to your already overwhelmed mind. If you keep your apartment uncluttered it will help create a stress free environment, as well as keep your mind from being overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done. 

Additionally, in your living room, keep some throw blankets nearby. Whether they are stylishly placed on couches or chairs, or placed in an ottoman, having blankets nearby can contribute to a stress-free environment. The coziness of a blanket hug will be right in front you. 

Keep This Space Clutter Free

One of the most important places to relax is the bedroom. The rest of the apartment can be relaxing too, but the bedroom is the ultimate place to go and unwind. After all, it’s where you sleep. Try not to have a desk in your bedroom, unless you absolutely have to, because it is good to have a spot to go to that doesn’t make you think of work. Adding work or bills to the environment of your bedroom can inhibit you from truly unwinding.  

Decorating Your Apartment 

Furthermore, when decorating your apartment, it’s important to not go above and beyond. Yes, decorations are great and can really transform a house or apartment into a home. However, there is such a thing as too much decorating. If all of the open spaces within your apartment are filled, maybe think about dwindling down some of the decorations, especially ones you don’t really care for. Taking certain things out of the way and limiting the amount of decorations that are seen, can contribute to a more peaceful setting. 


Overall, creating a relaxing space in your apartment is not impossible. It may take a few steps and possible purchases to reach the level of stress-free that you’re looking for, but in the end it will be worth it. Having your apartment with features that contribute to a stress-free environment will benefit you immensely.
