Who says you need to crank up the heat to eighty degrees to feel comfy-cozy in your home?
The reality is, making your home a place that feels comfortable and cozy is a relatively simple endeavor. But for whatever reason, many homeowners struggle to implement a welcoming ambiance. And sure, not everyone is interior décor-savvy, but the truth is, you really don’t have to be.
Decorating your home so that it’s a warm environment is a feasible venture that combines personal lifestyle with interior appeal. Once you’ve established these two elements of home décor, the sky is the limit in terms of making your living place a cozy and comfortable environment.
Spark a Fire: There’s just something about building a fire that adds an instant charm of warmth and personality into your home. When the fireplace is crackling, it becomes a focal point to your home—a place of social gathering and a source for family bonding. In fact, the effects given off from a fireplace are much more than the feelings of physical “warmth,” instead, a fireplace strums an emotional chord that is nostalgically instilled in all of us.
If you don’t have a real fireplace, there are still several ways in which you can reap its cozy benefits. Visit your local flea market or antique mom-and-pop store and look for a salvaged fireplace. Disguise its functions using a space heater, decorative faux flames or pillar candles of different heights and shapes.
Dream in Tranquility: Sometimes you don’t even need to be conscious to feel comfortable.
The way in which you sleep at night is one of the most important aspects of leading a happy and healthy lifestyle. If your sleeping routine lacks the quality of comfort, you’re most likely not enjoying your daily routine. For that reason, it’s imperative to invest in comfortable beds throughout your home that you and your guests can enjoy to feel energized in the morning. By finding a bed that is tuned to your comfort, you will undoubtedly experience a more comfortable living experience within the walls of your own home.
Don’t forget your toes: Is there anything worse that being barefoot in your own home and not have your feet feeling comfortable?
By laying vibrant and chic rugs along the surfaces of your floor, you and your guests will feel inclined to slip off your shoes and cozily stroll around your home. However, shopping for rugs can quickly become an expensive venture, so consider purchasing refurbished rugs that compliment the ambiance of your home.
Invite in Mother Nature: As human beings, we were once intended to live amongst nature. Well, as time pasted, evolution has modified to our synthetic form of living and reconciled our need to rely on Mother Nature.
However, by inviting sources of nature back into our lives, we’ve become reliant on its benefits towards interior décor and comfort. Many of today’s indoor plants help homeowners to purify the air and filter out volatile compounds—protecting our loved ones by improving indoor air quality. From the brightly energetic Gerby daisy flowering plant to the vibrantly pink blooms of a Chrysanthemum flower, there are endless ways to naturally implement Mother Nature into your home that help to produce heath, beauty and comfort.
Display family photos and memories of your past: One of the easiest and most efficient ways to make you feel cozier in your home is to immerse yourself with reflections of your life and/or past. When we are reminded of moments or people that have impacted our lives for the better, we feel better.
Comfortable seating in the bedroom: Your bedroom shouldn’t have to be a room that is exclusively intended for sleeping. Giving your bedroom the addition of a loveseat or lounge-like seating will tempt you to relax without going to bed. Whether it’s curling up with a book or indulging yourself with a glass of red wine—utilizing seating in the bedroom is a surefire way to add a sense of coziness.
Display blankets on your walls: Using your blankets as a wall display oozes a feeling of coziness. This artistic yet endearing décor idea is perfect for easy-to-snuggle access, adding colorful charm while showing off your unique interior creativity.
