There’s no better feeling than walking into somebody’s house and being greeted with a cosy atmosphere. We have put together some top tips on home you can turn your house into a home:
Add pops of colour
One great way to start transforming your house into a home is to add pops of colour. Although grey, black and white gloss, velvet and everything in-between looks fabulous, it does not make the house feel cosy. Try and steer away from the greys and opt for more colourful cushions, sofa, curtains etc. the possibilities are endless with this one. This will give the room a less show-room like feeling and more of a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
If there is one thing you must do in order to turn your house into a home, its to get some wooden furniture! For example, you could go for a solid oak coffee table, or maybe even some pine side tables; all these little accents will help you achieve a homier feeling. Furniture Plus Online have a fabulous range of coffee tables and side tables at very reasonable prices.
Turn up the heat
If you have the money, this tip will 1000% increase the cosy feeling in your home… Invest in a fireplace! Not only do they look stunning, but they are practical in the sense that they will provide heat for you and your family (or even better, get a log burning fireplace to achieve extra home points!)
I couldn’t stress to you enough how imperative it is to flood your home with candles. Candles are the be-all and end-all when it comes to achieving a cosy atmosphere. Not only will they add warmth, but they will also make the room smell incredible (if you opt for scented that is), plus, come evening they will look gorgeous whilst you have the television on, and a throw placed over you (this will also save you a bit of money from electricity)
Finally, the last tip you should take away from this is to get some display flowers for each room in the house. They do not have to be real flowers, but if you have some placed around your house, you are sure to achieve a homier atmosphere. Link this back with the first point though and make sure you match the flowers accordingly in line with the colour scheme of the room that you are placing them in. Flowers really do lift the mood of a room and can take any place from drab house to fab home! You can look at a multiple range of different artificial flowers online at Dunelm.
