A lot is being said about how color affects our mood, but what you may not know is that there are plenty of other aspects about your home or office’s design that are affecting your subconscious. Learning about how design affects mood can help you make the most out of your living space, floor arrangement, even what lies within view out your window. 

Ceiling height 

Studies suggest that the height of your ceiling might actually impact your thought process. Apparently, rooms with low ceilings encourage detailed thinking, whereas heigh ceilings are more likely to promote broad thinking, and abstract connection making. 

What’s out your window? 

Contrary to what many think, studies have found that views of nature out the window cause people indoors to focus more easily. Have a garden in the backyard? Open the window when it’s time to get things done. 

Ties between your furniture and your mind 

It’s no wonder that there’s such a big trend right now towards raw materials in the home. Recent discoveries show a connection between mood and furniture. These studies show that spending time in a room filled with solid walnut wood furniture produces similar psychological benefits to what you receive when spending time in the forest. Wood furniture calms you, reduces blood pressure, heart rate, anxiety and improves social interactions. Wood furniture also improves air quality around the house. 

What does your interior design say about you?

You aren’t the only one who will be affected by the interior design of your home. Much like how having quality, wooden furniture has a subconscious effect on your guests, people visiting your home will make assumptions about who you are based on the choices you make on how you furnish your home. But at the end of the day, we’re the ones who spend the most time in our homes. So why not invest in furniture that expresses us?
