37 Cool Ways To Add A Cozy Feel To Your Home

cool ways to add a cozy feel to your home cover

We usually think of coziness when fall or winter comes but the truth is we need coziness every day, in spring and summer, too. How to make your space cozier and what elements to incorporate into your decor to make it homey?

Cover The Walls

To make the space homey and cozy, cover the walls with wallpaper, wood or even fabric if you want. Wallpaper is a very trendy idea, even if you go for a single statement wall, it will make the room more welcoming and bolder. Wood in any colors and finishes never goes out of style and such walls bring rustic coziness anywhere – from living rooms to bathrooms (you may use wood-imitating tiles there). Upholstered walls aren’t a frequent feature, so it will make your space look like no other, besides upholstery makes the space more soundproofed.

Dim The Lights

While bright, cool lights may help you be more productive at work, filling your home with cool light will only serve to stress you and your family out. In order to enhance the hygge feeling in your home, switch off or dim your bright overhead lights and swap cool bulbs for warmer alternatives. You can further amplify this effect by using candles and small table lamps to give your home a calming and comforting feel.

Put Upholstered Furniture

Anything upholstered is always more comfortable than anything non-upholstered, so choosing furniture, give preference to upholstered pieces. Before picking necessary items, consider the type of ambiance that you wish to create as well as the way in which you’ll be using the room. For example, if you entertain a lot, you might want a sectional sofa. If you’re going for a super cozy look a small sofa with comfy cushions would be perfect.

Bring Textiles

Personalize

Comfort is often about familiarity, so if you hang a few family portraits and treasured artwork pieces to remind you of the important things in life, your home will be cozier. If you have heirloom furniture or some old decorations you love, feel free to add them to the space, too.
