You can create a designated space for peace and quiet that allows you and your guests to take a break from their chaotic lives and finally relax. Fill this space with comfortable furniture, warm colors, and cozy elements to encourage relaxation. It can also help to make sure this place is free from any outdoor electrical outlets that might encourage you to plug in.

  1. Spice Up Your Furniture
