How to Create the Ultimate Home Workout Room

How to Update Your Home Workout Room or Meditation Space

The new year is always a chance to start fresh. On January 1st, most are looking at the year ahead and writing down their intentions or New Year’s Resolutions to help kick off 2023.

Whether you are looking to begin a new workout routine, set time aside for more meditation, or prioritize your overall health and well-being, dedicating a workout room or meditation space in your home is the best place to start.

Yet, even with our best resolutions in mind and a well-designed workout room, it can be challenging to be motivated throughout the year and stay consistent with new goals and priorities.

To help keep you on track for the new year, we are sharing our best home gym decor ideas, along with motivation on how to balance fitness and work from Tempaper & Co. CEO and Co-Founder, Julia. 

"After starting a family, I was struggling  to find “me” time. A good work out clears my head and helps me reset.  Over the past 3 years, I shifted my schedule to an early morning workout. It is extremely peaceful and calming to wake up to silence, no demands or meetings scheduled, and have time to focus on myself before the day begins."

How to Create a Workout Space at Home

When it comes to designing a workout space at home, there are many things to consider. While the location, types of equipment, and the overall layout of the room are all important things to keep in mind, choosing the right wall decor plays an important role, too.

From motivational quotes on the wall to having the perfect paint or wallpaper color - the smallest details matter when it comes to designing a place of Zen.

Once you determine where your workout room should go in your home (be practical about the size of your space and make sure there is enough room for everything you will need), it’s important to consider the best color and pattern for your walls or ceiling.

"Having repainted and renovated 75% of our house within 3 months, I left my basement for last. I was exhausted, eight months pregnant and unfortunately selected the wrong paint color! There are no windows in my basement so the color that I choose was very different once it was painted on the wall. Something to keep in mind when selecting color for rooms without windows. Unfortunately, I caught the painters mid-way through the second coat and it was too late to make any changes. I used to cringe every time I spent time in my basement."

Choosing the Perfect Color for Your Home

Color has the power to uplift the mood in your space. It can motivate and inspire you, which is why it’s so important to choose the right wallpaper for every room in your home, especially your home office, bedroom, and fitness space.

Choosing the right color for your home gym or meditation space can seem overwhelming, but we are here to help.

How to Update Your Peloton Room

To help kick off the new year ahead, Tempaper & Co. CEO and Co-Founder, Julia, wanted to revamp her at-home gym. For removable wallpaper, she chose Brick White for her Peloton room decor.

"Honestly, I love the Brick pattern. It completely transformed my space. It went from a yellow/pink mess to an industrial space with character. My husband’s jaw dropped when he walked downstairs for the first time. I think it’s a charming space that makes me feel like I’m back in my Brooklyn apartment."

This subtle wallpaper design was the perfect backdrop behind her motivational wall art. Choosing a subtle print won’t overwhelm your space. Instead, it will set the tone for a clean, organized room.
