Having a space in your home to meditate and get away from the daily chaos of life is essential to emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being. When was the last time you were able to stop running around, handling work and chores and worries, and just enjoy some silence and relaxation? Carving out a corner of your home for some personal relaxation time can work for a while, but if you're building your dream home, why not create a meditation room that is designed specifically to meet your needs? Creating a separate and dedicated space for meditation can give you the perfect spot to empty your mind of concerns without competing with children's toys or office papers.
There are a variety of things to pay attention to when designing and constructing a dedicated meditation room, including:
- Focusing on the lighting. Lighting is essential to creating a calm space that allows you to connect with your meditative practices. Ambient lighting, provided by wall sconces or low overhead can lighting, is a great way to provide the light you need without creating too bright of a space.

- Bringing nature in. Large windows help connect you with the outdoors and allow nature to be present during your meditation sessions. Adding overhead skylights provides light from all directions.

- Adding built-ins. A great way to keep your meditation space clear and uncluttered is to add built-in shelves and cabinets. This provides you plenty of storage without adding any bulky furniture pieces to the space.
