7 tips to create a cozy home for your family
"A cozy home is the perfect place to take off your shoes, relax and escape. You can't beat it!" I love when people say that my home is cozy. It makes me feel so amazing, because then I know they are comfortable in their surroundings and enjoying themselves with what's happening outside of them as well!
I wanted to share some things about decorating for coziness - there are always new ideas coming up these days which can make any space more inviting than ever before- but first let me tell you why this comment/ compliment means so much to us? When someone says something along the lines “Your place made me really relaxed” or even better yet "you have created an elegant oasis here," those words ring true on many levels
The million dollar question is how do you make your house cozy? Well, there are many ways of doing it.
1. CREATE WARMTH THROUGH LIGHTING
Light is the first step to creating an inviting, cozy atmosphere. It can be difficult figuring out how many lights are enough for your home but one way you might want check on this front would be with a task light in each room and also using incandescent bulbs instead of fluorescent ones which emit much less heat - not only will they create more warmth throughout rooms but these traditional lamps have been proven time after time as being effective at making people feel happier too!
It can be difficult to work in a space with harsh overhead lighting. Instead, make sure you have plenty of task and table lamps as well as floor or candle light--depending on your preference! When it's dark outside, create clusters where there are focal points so people will congregate around them when they're done working for the day.
2. ADD LIFE WITH PLANTS & FLOWERS
If you want to make your home more cozy and inviting, we recommend adding some plants and flowers. You can use this information to create a space that feels like yours – one with personality and life! Here are our top four recommendations for the best indoor plants (and how they’ll help you). We also have a list of five fragrant houseplants if you need something soothing or calming in your living room. Finally, don't forget about packing bamboo flower pot for those places where there isn't enough light! It's not just an old wives' tale; it really does work as a natural air freshener too!
3. WARM UP YOUR SPACE WITH RUGS & TEXTILES
When the warmer seasons approach, you can always strip back your carpets and store them for winter. It’s also fun to switch up how your home decorates!
Coziness is all around us; it's in every room of our houses (or homes). But did you know rugs make great additions too? Striping down a rug will let warmth seep through from underneath that layer while keeping dirt at bay on top-no need cleaning constantly because we haven't even mentioned adding color or patterned designs which only adds more character into any space--and who doesn't love some added beauty?!
4. ADD TEXTURE
Adding texture to your home is a great way to make it feel cozy. It also gives you the opportunity to play with different colors, patterns and textures that will make your space stand out. There are many ways you can add texture to your home including pillows, rugs, blankets and furniture upholstery. Today I'm going to show you how easy it is for you do this yourself!
1. Add a soft rug to the living room
2. Hang some tapestries on your walls for an eclectic look
3. Install hardwood flooring in your home's entrance or hallway, so it looks less cold and sterile
4. Place rugs around furniture to add texture and warmth
5. Add plants indoors - they can be used as decoration while also adding oxygen to the air
6. Buy curtains with patterns or colors that match your current decor style
7) Change out lightbulbs in rooms where natural light isn't enough (or is too harsh) with ones that are more flattering like daylight bulbs, which emit more of a warm glow than fluorescent lights do
5.AVOID COMPLETELY EMPTY WALLS
Conclusion paragraph: To create a cozy home for your family, it is important to avoid completely empty walls. Walls are meant to be filled with artwork and photos of loved ones. They should also serve as organizational tools- home offices can use them for shelving or storage; bedrooms can use them for displaying favorite books; living rooms can store TV remotes and other items in an attractive manner… There are many ways you could fill up those blank spaces! One thing we like about these hexagonal floating shelves from COMFIFY is how they take up minimal visual space while still providing ample room for storing anything from DVD collections to cookbooks.
6. DON’T FORGET FRAGRANCE & SCENT
Adding fragrance to your home can make it a more welcoming place. There are many ways you can add scent to your home, from using candles and incense to essential oils! Add some scents in the bathroom for a relaxing experience after work or in the bedroom for a romantic evening with that special someone. You could also try adding different smells throughout the kitchen or living room for a unique way of changing up the moods of those spaces!
7. BRING IN SEASONAL GREENERY
No matter the season, we always want to make sure that our decor is natural and earthy. There are many ways you can do this: from hanging flowers in your home or placing a vase with some stems on it- all while using greenery such as leaves for fall decorations!
For an understated yet really chic seasonal autumnal look, I recommend experimenting with things like long sculptural stems, dried flower pods and eucalyptus. A perfect combination will be wheat or grasses mixed in for some texture!
