New Furniture May Have Impact on Overall Health and Wellness

When decorating a home or office, considering the items and how they affect a person's health and well-being is a must

Studies reveal that there is a specific reason people stay longer at sit-down restaurants versus fast-food establishments. The differences in lighting, music, and even furniture has a psychological effect that encourages people to “sit, and stay a while,” or to eat quickly and move on. However, a person’s surroundings can do much more than just set the mood – they can have a significant impact on a person’s well-being.

The work and home environment have a significant influence on a person’s sense of well-being but are often overlooked. Because these are the environments that a person spends the most time in, it’s only natural they would have an impact.

However, rooms that are brightly lit have also been proven to help improve cases of anxiety and depression. The presence of treasured mementoes and plants do much more than just list a person’s spirits; they can influence an individual’s physical health. Even though a person’s surroundings have such a significant impact, most don’t give much thought on how it can be used to improve their well-being. Regardless of if a person is looking or new furniture or considering new lighting, they should consider the impact their selections will have on their health and well-being, beyond just the aesthetic appeal of what the items offer.

According to experts, the furniture and accessories used in any space will impact the overall feel, mood, and vibe of a space. When selecting furniture and other items work to cultivate comfort by finding comfortable pieces that encourage people to linger.

Another factor that can impact the well-being is the clutter and extra items lying around a home. If a home is unkept, dirty, or otherwise cluttered it can have a negative impact on a person’s mindset. Too much furniture, too many items on the walls, and other similar factors can make a space feel overwhelming, draining, and cumbersome. By reducing clutter, large furniture items, and other factors, the space will look more positive and feel lighter.

The light in a room has a huge impact on the feel of the space. Letting natural light in during the morning and keeping the house bright during the day helps create a sense of being awake and alert. When the evening comes, ensure lighting is in use that’s able to be dimmed. If a house is too bright during the evening, it makes it harder to get a good night’s rest.

The psychological effect of furniture, clutter and lighting is significant, but color can have a similar effect. For example, bright colors make a bold statement while greens and blues can create peace and serenity. Photos, artwork, and curtains are additional ways to visually enhance a space and playing soft music can help engage the other senses create a calming environment.

Creating a space that is visably, psychologically and emotionally pleasing takes work, but it’s something that can help to improve the health and well-being of everyone in the home, office, or other location.
