In Hong Kong, a lot of people live with their parents, and arguments and misunderstandings can be easily found. Maybe you didn’t notice, but an insufficient interior design and planning might be one of the intensifiers in these misunderstandings. Let Style50s share with you some ideas to enhance your house to decrease the possibility of causing misunderstanding in relationships.
1. Private Space
We all have emotions and at some point of our life, we all have to let these emotions out. Besides having a soulmate that understands and shares these emotions with you, a safe and comfortable environment is also essential. Just like how you need to be in the study room to study, your parents also need an area that belongs to them. It could be the coffee table in front of the sofa or the sitting area in the balcony. Do not underestimate the importance of having a private area, or even just furniture. Therefore, we recommend you to discuss your interior designs with your parents to ensure everyone in the house is happy with it!
Memories define the differences between people. We are unique because we hold different memories and experiences. We all have a lot of objects that represent a special memory. For example, our wedding ring, or the suit that you wore to your first job interview. Your parents do too. If we don’t want to lose these symbolizations of memories, or force our parents to give up their memories for more space in the house, we need to do our best to expand our storage space.
3. Light colors
This might sound irrelevant, but it’s actually one of the most important points! To minimize the possibility of arguments, painting the wall with smooth and light colors would definitely help. For example, colors like, beige, cream, or light yellow. Reducing visual impact which would calm our nerves and reach a better mood. Of course, it is also important to make use of natural lighting for both visual and health purposes!
