Welcome to the Home Made Simple Blog
Your home is important to us. That’s old news. But it’s not just the pretty things that matter to us at Home Made Simple. The spaces we spend our time in have such a huge impact on our happiness and health. Our homes and offices, our offices at home, even our cars, are all places we spend hours and hours sitting in, cleaning, looking at, and bringing other people to.
These spaces are what have always been our number one concern at Home Made Simple, that’s why we have so many great products available for you to choose from. But how do you choose the perfect thing? That’s where our new Home Made Simple Blog comes in. We are extending our helping hand to our readers, talking about topics that concern your spaces. If you can’t decide on what kind of bed frame will work best in a small room, or how to sort out that storage issue in the bathroom, or what best suits your washing needs, top loader or front, we will answer the questions we can and open up a discussion for others to share their experiences.
The Importance of Our Living Spaces
It’s not just about what looks best, it’s about what feels good too. Studies have shown that our built environment, our spaces, directly impact our emotional and psychological wellbeing. Lack of sunlight, too much clutter, and amount of time spent outdoors, are all directly linked to conditions such as depression, anxiety, and chronic procrastination. (https://www.talkspace.com/blog/physical-environment-mental-health/) This is why having a well organised home, one that has a livable outdoor space, and lots of light and fresh air, is so important.
Our homes are also our sanctuary, the space where we feel the most comfortable and relaxed. In such a constantly stimulating world it’s vital that we have a space to ‘turn off’. If we don’t, then our experiences in other spaces can be negatively affected which includes our work and education. This is specifically important in school age children, who can greatly benefit from a safe space to come home to. (https://www.lifeskills4kids.com.au/overwhelmed-childs-safe-space/)
Homes are also where we keep all our things, which might sound obvious, but the things we own and value can prompt memories and different emotions when seen or used. These are important connections to our past and the ambitions we have for our future, our homes are strongly connected to our sense of identity. (https://money.usnews.com/money/personal-finance/articles/2012/04/05/why-our-homes-make-us-happy) This is why our homes are so individual and expressive, they are the image of ourselves that we identify with every day and the image of ourselves that we choose to share with others.
We understand that making your home just the way you want it, isn’t always easy. Home Made Simple is here to help you express your identity and help you make the most comfortable and livable space for yourself and your family.
