Do you ever feel that your home isn’t quite cuddle-worthy? There’s nothing wrong with it per se, but there is just something missing from making you want to settle down for the evening. If so, it is important that you work to increase the overall coziness of your home through increased comfort factors.
Here are four ways that you can successfully increase the overall coziness of your home:
1 – Add Blankets
If you want to increase both the overall coziness and warmth of your home, then adding blankets is undoubtedly the best way for you to do so. A blanket is both comfortable and comforting to cuddle into at the end of a long day. So, a cozy home needs multiple.
Place blankets in your living room, bedroom and other areas where you tend to spend a large amount of time. As this is where you will gain the most benefit from your blankets.
2 – Choose Softer Textures
For ultimate home comfort, you need to make sure that the textures in your home are cozy by association. Knitted items, faux fur, and velvet are all good examples of this. And luxury velvet furniture isn’t as costly as you might expect compared to other contemporary furniture. Especially if you choose to shop secondhand or upcycle some of your older pieces for this task.
3 – Candlelight
The soft illumination of candlelight can be a feeling of delight. Candles can be warm, smell delightful and just add a special kind of atmosphere to any space. This is why adding a lot of candles can genuinely be the quickest–relatively cheap–way to improve the overall coziness of any room.
4 – Let Nature In
This may be a surprising piece of advice, but nature can actually be a great way to add coziness to space. A plant or flower is a special kind of homely, with a delightful scent and bright colors that add something to any space they are in. In the depths of winter, this can add a new grasp of life to space.
5 – Warm Colours
Often the colors we choose for space can really impact how warm or cold we find it. As well as whether or not it is actually cozy or not. For example, an icy blue color may be aesthetically pleasing to you. But, ultimately, it won’t be all that cozy.
For added coziness through color, choose deep colors that soothe the soul. Deep blues, warm reds and crystalline whites. It will differ depending on your tastes, but it all should only add to your coziness and not detract from it (as so many people mistakenly do).
All in all, it is important to consider the space you have and the elements needed to increase coziness. Cozy means different things to different people. So, make sure you make the choice that fits you and your space.
