Creating a Peaty Room - paint color, flooring, carpet, and furniture

I am going to list my thoughts on creating a peaty room - hopefully others can insert their thoughts on the subject

I would think a room that best supports metabolism would consist of the following:

No carpet and a clean room - carpet is very hard to clean - even if you vacuum consistently I feel it accumulates dust and dirt way more than a hard floor - a dirtier room with a bunch of stuff laying around makes it a lot easier for dust and things that make it hard to breathe to accumulate and it's just in general harder to vacuum and mop

A window - for sunlight and also to easily get some fresh air

Flooring - what do people think of this ? Do tiles or a wood flooring work best ? I would think maybe a more electrically conductive floor would be cool (it's like how people were saying that shoes with rubber soles weren't ideal because they were resistant to electricity when walking on the floor)

Would a steel or metal floor work best ? Could you possibly accumulate metal in the body from walking on it all the time ? I'm not sure it's interesting to think about - I do tend to like wood floors a lot but I have never experimented with a metal floor

Less Furniture - In my view - the less furniture in your room the better and that is because a lot of dust accumulates underneath and behind and in the real world I feel like if you have a lot of furniture in your room people tend to be lazier about cleaning everything - dust accumulating on the floors and furniture on your room can make it very difficult to breathe even if you have an air filter - cleaning everything consistently I think is important

Color - what do people think about this ? I have seen so many studies on this ? We already know that looking at different colored light affects our metabolism greatly but what about the color of paint on the walls ? You might find this interesting :

  • Warm-colored placebo pills were reported as more effective than cool-colored placebo pills in one study.3
  • Blue-colored streetlights can lead to reduced crime according to anecdotal evidence.
  • Red causes people to react with greater speed and force, something that might prove useful during athletic activities according to researchers.4
  • Black uniforms are more likely to receive penalties. Additionally, students were more likely to associate negative qualities with a player wearing a black uniform according to a study that looked at historical data of sports teams and what they were dressed.

    It seems our bodies not only respond to different colored radiation but from different colors altogether ?

    It's like how people used to say that a woman looks better when she wears red - could there be truth to this in everything we see ? I notice I do feel better in rooms in my house that are painted yellow/orange - and these are warm-colored spectrum colors too - I don't feel as good in rooms painted blue with almost everything being equal - these rooms feel more depressive

    Let me know your suggestions and thoughts below I think this thread can be quiet useful for those starting their rooms from scratch

Cannot help but admire the effort you put into your threads - a creative genius.

As for a Peaty room, would imagine that less is most definitely more.

Depending on the size - Just opting the bare essentials.

Pretty sure Peat said that TV nowadays is garbage, so, no TV.

If a studio then probably just a mattress, table + chair(s), fridge/stove.

Probably a Peaty idea would be to make the room as minimalist as possible so it encourages you to go out and socialise with friends but cozy enough that you could have a lazy day in there whilst watching the rain fall down from the outside.

Haha thanks - Yes I agree these are some great points - minimalist as possible in general I think is one of the best rules to follow especially when it comes to these large electrical devices like Fridges, TV's, etc.

As for flooring, yes a wood floor is best but needs to be untreated natural wood instead of cheaper "engineered" wood.

Tiles are nasty and reminiscent of the concrete floor of a prison. Hard surfaces are dehumanising. Surfaces should have some give and large expanses of flat/blank space are best avoided.

Minimalism is likewise the "you'll own nothing and you'll be happy" model and I think the point is to encourage you to feel like you don't belong in your own home (therefore nowhere), and ultimately to cause a sort of embarrassment about existing at all. People have always liked to settle down in a spot and make it theirs; even nomadic peoples cart various knickknacks around with them or spend time making new ones when they settle at a new location.

Ah yes - this is an excellent point

Yes these are very good points - I am thinking of people instinctively buying art pieces like paintings or sculptures to have on their home - It does seem that there are mental benefits to having a very presentable house/room this is a good point

User @Lilac sent me this great piece - this is short and definitely worth the read for housing and for rooms in general - unfortunately it doesn't let me respond to the DM's to say thanks! I have attached it here in case any other user is interested - thanks!

Thanks! This is a great read...
I have been looking for shoes with leather soles - impossible to find. As are cotton mattresses/beddings.

Yep - I am in the same boat - I am not very good at sewing/knitting but it seems like I will have to make it from scratch - I don't mind as this will prove to be a lifelong valuable skill - I am going to start with shoes because I do notice as soon as I put on my shoes before I go outside I do feel worse - it feels a lot better walking around my house barefoot

You can use a sheepskin rug and layers of wool/cotton blankets to sleep on

I use this and it’s fine but would prefer a sheepskin set up

Its just hard to find. I'm in Canada and wool blankets and sheepskin rugs are very difficult to find (good quality, unadulterated ones) and are exhorbitant. But its a good idea - I had given up a few years ago but I think I will start the search again.

I wonder if you can check Etsy. Shipping would probably be expensive but I remember when I traveled to Finland there were sheep and fox furs for very inexpensive at outdoor markets all over Helsinki.

Another thing to consider for sleeping is that the fill for all of these pillows is either polyester or feathers! I find both to be quiet allergenic - yesterday I was experimenting laying my head down on a rolled up cotton blanket instead and it was the first time I wasn't getting allergies laying down on my bed - so much of this bedding they make I think leans on the allergenic side

Where are all the stacks & stacks of papers & books?? Pencils, yellow legal pads, cans of old pens & rubber bands? Bags of co2-producing maseca & buckets of coconut oil?

I prefer my place to be more of an archeological dig.

Agree: attention to color & material is good.

I want to hear what everyone says about this. Interesting.

Excellent thoughts. I think between a minimalist place and a super cluttered (even if tidy) space there is a lot of room for personal preferences that do not have anything to do with dehumanizing, but good thoughts.

+1 for wood floors.
+1 for regularly clean carpets as the amount of dust is negligible for the cozyness they provide.

Red color at bedroom totally disencouraged. Warm, light orange if needed.

Totally white is not good either, as it makes it seem like a hospital or hotel room.

I am talking about bedroom. Living rooms, home offices, hobby rooms, etc are a different story.

Every so often I would check in Winners. One of our similar stores, Home Goods, is where I found my sheepskin rug. But I've moved to a warmer climate and can only tolerate in the winter here. So, climate matters.

I have the hated tile floor and am covering it with wool rugs as best I can.
