one of the most important aspects of a happy home is making your home cozy and inviting. A haven that will make your family happy. A home that feels familiar and at home.
Here are some tips on how to make your home inviting and cozy.
1. Combines many substances
If you use fabrics like velvet, linen, wool, or even silk, you can use them to create a cozy atmosphere. Use canvas cushions or velvet sofas, knitted fabrics, etc. and mix and combine as you like. This technique adds some depth to your decor. Too many types of textiles can also seem too hectic, so limit yourself to 3-4 different textiles for each room.
2. Dare to use patterns
Bring more character into your home with patterns and motifs that you like. Whether it is flowers, geometric shapes, checks or animal prints, patterns help to generate warmth in the simplest way and at the same time represent an eye-catcher.
3. Upgrade your artwork
Find artists you love, maybe even local artists, and bring their work into your home. You can even take your own artwork or buy items from various stores. Freshening up your art wall is a great way to create a welcoming atmosphere.
4. Choose the right sofa cover
If your room feels too empty or uncomfortable, a well-made throw blanket is perfect to add to the space. A throwblanket with patterns is ideal, it helps to collect the space and creates visual added value.
5. Add a few plants
Indoor plants are one of the most popular and affordable ways to make your home more vibrant and inviting. There are many beautiful indoor plants that are easy to care for, even if you have problems keeping plants alive. Choose plants with an interesting shape or leaves and color to add more character to your home.
6. Place flowers throughout the house
The first thing to do is to invest in decorative vases and jugs that will go with the rest of the decoration. Place them on window sills, work surfaces, coffee tables and on dressers in different rooms throughout. Fresh or dried flowers and twigs are immediately enchanting and help make the room look more homely.
7. Use uniform tableware
Of course, plates and bowls that do not belong together can have their own charm, but if you invest in a set that belongs together and is uniform, it makes the dining room a little more organized and tidy. In addition to beautiful crockery and cutlery, the right table decorations are also helpful for the perfect ambience. This includes, among other things, tablecloths , table runners and or placemats with matching napkins.
8. Vanilla scented candles
Candles create a cozy atmosphere, especially the scented candles. In a study by Oxford University, researchers examined various fragrances. They found that the vanilla scent especially helps you relax and promotes a positive mood.
9. Replace old door handles and knobs
You can even make cheap furniture and old doors look better with a little new furniture material. Attach new door handles and knobs and dare to mix and match different materials according to your own taste. Rummage in the local furniture and hardware store or even at a flea market nearby and you’ll be amazed at what you can find there. This is the cheapest and easiest way to transform old chests of drawers and doors.
Choosing the right lighting for your space can be tricky. From bright light to subdued light, pendant lights, wall lights, chandeliers and LED lights. It is important to keep an eye on the functionality of the lighting for the room before making a purchase decision. There are ambient lighting (the primary light source), work lighting (the lighting for specific activities), and accent lighting (decorative lighting).
