We all know that the outside world can be harsh from time to time. That’s why we want our homes to be sanctuaries. They should be places where we can get away from the troubles and toils of life and just relax and enjoy ourselves.
But how, exactly, are you supposed to do that? Well, we have some answers for you. In this post, we take a look at some inspiring ideas to transform your property into an oasis. Check them out below.
Make Your Home Office Stress-Free
Thanks to the current work-from-home movement, more and more of us are staying put in the morning, working from our laptops. In some respects, it’s great. We don’t have to get dressed in the morning. We simply roll out of bed and get on with work.
In other respects, though, it’s a problem. We’re bringing work into our homes like never before.
The trick here is to turn your home office into more of an inviting space. You don’t want it to feel like a 1970s office, full of cubicles. You want it to be light, airy, and a place that takes some of the stress out of the situation when your boss complains about your work.
Add Plenty Of Plants
Oases wouldn’t be what they are without plants. That’s why it is so important to include as many as possible in your home.
You’ll notice that plants change how you feel. Just being in the presence of greenery elevates your mood and gives you energy, no matter how bad your diet is.
If you’re planning on bringing more plants into your home, it’s a good idea to learn how to care for a Brazilian rain tree bonsai tree. These species are particularly adapted to indoor living and they look great, too.
Turn Your Bathroom Into An Inner Sanctum
If your home is an oasis, you want your bathroom to be an oasis within an oasis. This room should get the lion’s share of your attention, where you bring as many self-care must-haves into the space as possible. Concentrate on creating a multi-sensory experience. Look for ways to enhance the environment in whatever way you can. Add rocks, seashells, scented candles, rugs, plants and anything else that turns the bathroom into a special place.
Add Convenience To Your Kitchen
Nothing is more annoying than a kitchen that fails to function as you want. You’re constantly frustrated, trying to find pots and pans, and juggling items while cooking on the hob.
Here are some ideas for turning your kitchen into a space that reduces your stress:
- Get a pan organizer
- Buy reusable plastic ice cubes
- Invest in a refrigerated drawer

Lastly, consider ways you can transform your bedroom so that it feels more like a hotel. Consider the sheets, the seating area, and decor, adding accents that make the space feel more loved.
Go for luxurious bedding where you can. Then invest in a nook or nap corner you can use when you want to kick back and just read a good book.
