5 Meditation Spaces We'd Love to Have at Home

Achieve a spot where you can think and relax

Shares

Ask homeowners about their favorite spots at home and for sure you'll get different answers. Others definitely love staying in the bedroom, a few would like to spend some alone time in the garden, and there are those who prefer lounging in the inviting living area. Wherever this nook is found, we're sure that you spend a great deal of time sprucing this area up—whether it's by adding a new decor piece or rethinking its layout.

Aside from prettifying these corners, you may also want to consider adding a few relaxing touches to create a Zen spot where you can meditate and reflect. Here are five calming nooks that we loved and how you can achieve a similar feel:

Turn a bare corner in your bedroom into a meditation spot by placing an area rug. Complete it with pillows, a coffee table, and a yoga mat. Place a small speaker on the coffee table so you can listen to soothing sounds while working on your breathing exercises.

If you live in a small apartment, install wall-mounted shelves and decorate it with a vase of flowers and catchalls for votive candles. Instead of adding an area rug, choose a woven mat that you can easily fold after your session.

Make your nook even more comfortable with small square cushions in printed pillowcases. These furnishings can fit in a cabinet should you need the space for a different purpose.

Even if you only have a small bedroom to work with, you can still achieve your own tranquil corner. Work with large floor cushions and a big kidney pillow. Use these pieces to craft a makeshift chair that you can sit on. Surround this area with potted plants—much better if it's situated by the window so you can add a few more greens by the windowsill and relish the natural light.

RL Tip: If the wall behind you is a bit plain, liven it up with a framed printout of you favorite quote or motivational phrase.

As an alternative to an open nook, you can choose to have a simple meditation area with a low cabinet for your things. You can use the surface on top to display flowers, books, and inspirational art. A huge floor pillow may also come in handy—should you wish to read a book and take a break.

Defining areas is a must in small spaces. If you want to carve out a special spot for prayer and meditation, use sheer white curtains to separate a corner of your bedroom or living area from the rest of the space. Complete it with a printed area rug and small potted plants. Place a huge floor pillow and keep it as is. Since you will be meditating, it's best to keep it free from extra accessories and unnecessary items. 

RL Tip: You can place a tray by a corner to hold your cup of tea and a few books or magazines.
