I remember as a realtor going through homes on Monday morning realtors tour of new listings and in this one particular home the carpets were covered with a clear plastic sheet, supposedly to keep them clean, but when you walked on the plastic you could feel a layer of oil, like cooking oil, on your feet afterwards. I could not wait to get home and wash my feet.
How to use your serenity room? Take an hour per week, or day, or whatever time you decide, and go there. Light the candles. Draw the shades. Put on acappella chant, Tim Janis, Enya, or Secret Garden on the stereo. Stretch out together on the pillows, and just listen to each other breathe. Relax. Enjoy. If this isn't part of everyone's mental health regimen yet it soon will be, as people discover the value of this priceless 'sensory deprivation'. The biggest obstacle you'll find in the beginning is allowing yourself the luxury of ignoring all the 'have to's', 'should be's' and general restlessness that causes you to need the room in the first place. But it's noise that's the primary concern.
Decorating from scratch, that is a new home, is relatively easy and just by browsing on the internet you will get many ideas for decor, color schemes and price ranges. Or if you are redoing your home then of course it will take some more time to get the old out and discarded, to make way for the new. Kitchens are important in that you need your cabinets fitted with a wood that can be matched with wall tiles and flooring. Blend in the colors to create uniformity and space.
