The importance of a well designed home has many benefits including psychological, read on to learn more.

As we enter February many people have taken to decluttering their houses of objects that no longer remain appealing to them. This mass decluttering of rooms has been inspired by Netflix’s new show Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. Mrs Kondo’s method of interior design involves the trademark registered Konmari method which involves imaging your ideal life and determining if that the object in your life “Sparks Joy”.

One of the most important things that the Konmari interior design method is about is having respect for the home. In how that having a well-designed home is important for not only your overall state of mind but helps an individual achieve a healthier lifestyle.

Psychologist have proven the effect of a well-organised environment can have not only health benefits but is essential to perform for daily life. As if a person does their office work on their bed during the day it will then become very difficult for that person to be able to sleep on their bed at night. This is because then the brain comes to associate the bed with work. Thus the importance of knowing the room certain furniture goes in, and when it should be used is essential in people’s daily lives.

People thanks to Mrs Kondo’s show have begining to realise this for the first time as many have started to remove items that have not been customised for their houses.

Removing objects that don’t “spark joy” can also lead to even finding long lost “joy” as one Perth family found. The Gorce-Masham family discovered a long-lost biscuit tin that belonged to a great grandmother that they thought they had lost.

Whilst removing an object that doesn’t create “joy” can be easy, finding a sofa that “sparks joy” for the home can be difficult. One only needs to walk up and down the halls of your local furniture store to see that finding a relaxing affordable customisable sofa for a home is near impossible.

Customisable furniture allows a person to spark their own joy as it is tailored for you and there is a guaranteed level of quality. Providing your home with a customised Italian leather sofa that is made for it cannot compete with buying a standard sofa.

Though one could argue why is a sofa necessary in having sparking joy in my home?

The answer to this is straight forward the sofa is the soul of the living room and if the living room is the soul of the house. Therefore sofa is the most important piece of furniture in the home. It is were the family gathers to either catchup on the day’s events, play with the family pets, catchup on the days events and huddle up together to watch tv. These are only some of the reasons as to why purchasing a customisable sofa is arguable as nearly essentially to ensure that your home spark joy.
