One of the things that have helped me create a happy home is making sure it is warm and welcoming. It is great to have a place where you can come to a sanctuary after a long day of work. It’s also important to create an environment at home where you feel peace and comfort for you and your family.
There are several ways you can make your own home warm and welcoming. One of these ways is decorating with items that make your household feel cozy not only for yourself, but also when you have guest and are entertaining.
Check out these 5 items you need to make your home feel cozy!
1. Use Texture
Using textures to decorate your home creates a warm living space. It adds a dose of personality and draws you in to make you want to embrace the coziness.
You can add shaggy throw pillows, velvet furniture, and to knit blankets. Mix and match these to bring an appealing look to your home. Be sure you use three to four textures in each room. Any more textures can create too much busyness.
2. Layer with Blankets
Every bed within your home needs a comforter and sheet. To make it extra cozy, layer blankets and textures. Trade out a single warm duvet for a few throw blankets that can be layered. You can remove them depending on the season.
3. Buy Matching Tableware
Mismatched plates and bowls can be very chic but investing in a cohesive and unified tableware set is very homey.
4. Handles and Knobs
A few hardware swaps can make a big difference in your home. switch out your handles and knobs for crystal or eccentric pulls from your local hardware. Mix and match can create a unique décor that brings out your own tastes. It’s also a cheap and simple fix that can bring life to older dressers and doors.
5. Add Some Plants and Flowers
Indoor plants and flowers are one of the easiest ways to make your home more livable and inviting. Place a few plants in your bookcase or empty corners of your home. Flowers can add an instant charm to your space and bring a more homey feeling. Place the flowers on countertops, coffee tables, and dressers throughout your home.
