Transitioning Away From Apartment Style

How To Make Your Home Look And Feel Cozier

by June Holland

If you find that your home doesn't have that cozy, inviting feel to it that you have always wanted a home to have, then there are some simple things that you can do that will help to make all of the difference to the look and feel of the inside of your home. Here are four helpful tips you can follow that will help you to transform your home into a cozy place you feel comforted by the moment you enter –

1: Hang up a lot of pictures

Leaving the walls in your home bare can give it a colder feeling. In order to create a cozier feeling, you can hang up a lot of family photos, as well as other pictures that take up space and add your own style and vibe to the living area. You can choose the style you want with regards to the sizes and styles of the frames and pictures. There really isn't a wrong way to go with pictures and you'll be surprised at how much more at home you will feel looking at your family and other things you love on the walls.

2: Use large area rugs in the living area

When you have a living area that has a bare floor it can give the home a spacey feel that can be a bit cold and uninviting. Choose one or more large area rugs that go with the rest of your décor and put them in areas that work well with the flow of the furniture and with the layout of the living space. Rugs can add charm, warmth, and coziness.

3: Get a fireplace

If your home has a fireplace already, then you should showcase it in a way that makes it one of the focal points. If your home doesn't have a fireplace, then you will be glad to learn that you can purchase aftermarket electric ones that you can put against the wall of your choosing, plug in and use to give you a feeling of a real fireplace.

4: Go with nice window treatments

If your house currently has only blinds on the windows, then you'll probably find they don't do much at all to add a warm feel in your home. You should put up nice window treatments that go with your décor and that add that inviting touch of charm to the windows. You can go with window treatments that are still on the simple side if you don't want anything too elaborate, but they can still help give your home that cozy touch you want.
