A 4-Step Guide to Making Your Living Space One You’ll Love
Create an Interesting Mantle to Showcase Art or Décor
A fireplace is a perfect place to hang out and relax when it’s chilly outside. Use the space to add special décor that should be on display or to showcase artwork.
Whether the fireplace and mantle are in the bedroom or the family room, the right décor helps make it look even more inviting and shows off some of what the family loves.
If you don’t have a fireplace yet, find out more about having one installed in your home so you can take advantage of the focal point to display your cherished items and the warmth when it’s cold outside.
Add Comfy Furniture and Accessories
Comfortable furniture is a must. Instead of choosing furniture that looks great but isn’t much fun to sit on, go for furniture that’s more plush and cozy. Add more furniture into the room to have added space to sit depending on what you’re doing.
Instead of just one sofa facing the television, add in a loveseat, and overstuffed chair or other furniture to add to the softness and comfort of the room. Use throw pillows and blankets on the furniture to give it more of a lived-in touch and to create a cozier space you’ll really enjoy using.
Always test out furniture to ensure you’re going to love using it every day and make sure you like how it’s going to look in your space.
Choose the Right Wall Art
The right wall art can completely change the look of a home and make it somewhere more inviting to be. Choose artwork that showcases your personality through the home and has some photos of your family displayed.
Artwork can be chosen to match the furniture in the room or furniture, blankets, and other design elements can be changed to match the artwork for a more cohesive look. The goal here is to have your personality shine, so the home is more of a reflection of you and more inviting for anyone who visits.
Create a Cozy Reading Nook
When there’s enough space under a window, a cozy reading nook is a perfect addition. Choose comfortable furniture to put in this space and make sure it has light, so it’s easy to read even when it starts to get dark outside.
Reading nooks can be used for reading, playing on a Smartphone, or just sitting comfortably while chatting with a friend. Choose colors and patterns for this area that stand out but that do complement the rest of the room for the perfect look.
If your home just doesn’t feel like home, it might be because you need to do a little more work to get everything just right. Use the tips here to create a cozier space you’re going to love being in and to make sure your home is a reflection of you. With the right décor, furniture, and accessories, you’re going to love the space.
