Advice to make your home cozier

1. Make your home cozier with pillows

Pillows to make a cozier home.
Pillows invite you to rest. Mix and combine different colors, or make them with extra fabric.

Pillows can help to make your house cozier. It seems like a silly thing, but it’s like this: pillows help people feel comfortable and welcome. So don’t hesitate and add them to your décor.

You can put different sized pillows on your armchairs, and even use a patchwork technique to make them yourself, taking advantage of leftover cloth or old clothes you have at home.

Another nice idea is to make huge pillows with nice prints and pile them on one side of your living room. When you have a lot of guests, ask them to use those pillows to sit. You can even have a Japanese dinner and eat at the coffee table!

If you have kids, you can make a reading corner with the crib mattress or another mattress you don’t use and add enough colorful pillows on top so that they are comfortable while they dive into their favorite stories.

2. Lights

One extremely important decorative element to make your home cozier is lighting. Choose curtains that let natural light in and can open completely. Additionally, it’s important to choose well the different lights and lamps in your home.

Many times we don’t pay attention to the lights and lamps in the house and that’s a mistake. Lighting is key to adding warmth to a room. When you buy light bulbs make sure you buy ones with warm light.

Regarding lamps, a standing lamp for reading can be perfect for right next to an armchair. You can also play with the lights to light up specific areas like the bookshelf or a painting.

How would you like a dimming lamp in your living room? Or a lava lamp or some candles?

These options that give low light are perfect for adding warmth to your home at night.

Using wood is one of the most common tactics to make your home cozier. A wood floor, tall natural wood or painted baseboards, rustic wood furniture, etc. Everything adds together to give the room the warmth you’re looking for.

You can also play a little with the colors. Any browns, oranges, and yellows will add an endearing style to the place. Additionally, you can use wicker, either in furniture or baskets to reinforce that feeling.

4. Make your home cozier with carpets

Rugs can help you to achieve the objective of this article. You can use neutral colors, but we recommend you look for warm tones. Pay special attention to where you place them: under the armchair, in a reading corner, or under the bed are nice options. The idea is to invite relaxation.

Blankets are another good trick when you’re decorating a room. You can fold them over the side of an armchair or even leave them hanging off a little.

Who wouldn’t want to recline in your armchair with pillows and blankets?

Just like with pillows, we recommend you play with the colors, the textures (woven or imitation fur), and prints. Let your imagination run free and give your sitting room a touch of color through the blankets.

Do you already have some changes in mind to make your home even cozier?
