Find a spare room--empty bedroom, walk-in closet, furnace room or bathroom if need be, and turn it into your serenity room. Darken the walls. Furnish the place with very little--a stand for candles, a small stereo, floor pillows. Heavy shades will enhance the mood. Install a lock on the door. Better yet, make the room off limits to anyone under the age of thirty, or shorter than three feet. Make that four feet. And no pets, either. One suggestion, unless cost is a factor, is an actual contracted remodeling. Look in the Yellow Pages or Online under quiet rooms, in-home theater construction or meditation rooms and peruse all the offerings. There are elaborate window shades, a product called QuietRock that is, drywall fabricated specifically for sound deadening applications. There are indirect, or mood lighting resources, even lighting that enhances the amount and kind of light if you suffer from seasonal affective disorder, in addition to noise pollution. . The same affect in reducing outside noise may be achieved by hanging blankets on the walls, and that may be a novel solution for couples. The wall hangings can be an art project, or a garage sale/antique store/self-spoiling expedition.
6. Bathrooms - this room should have tiled or linoleum floors and should be clean with fresh towels, shinny faucets and mirrors, matching paint and shower curtains or glass enclosure. There should be no mould in the grouting or around the shower doors or on the window ledges and this goes for the bedrooms too.
1. The Entrance Way - first impressions are made walking into that front entrance so think of what people first see when coming into your entrance way. It must be clean, the floors should not be scratched or worn carpets laid down and no dead plants hanging around in pots? Is should be bright and airy looking and the walls nicely painted in a light color?
