Many of us live a fast-paced and busy life. After a hard day’s work all we want to do is to return to a warm, relaxing and welcoming home. Here are some tips on how to create a cozy and inviting home not only for your guests but also for the master of the house – you.
Paint your walls a neutral shade.
When we say neutral shade, most people think of the color beige. Yes, beige is neutral color but it doesn’t always have to beige. You can choose a warmer sage colors or even brownish tones. Warm colors can be any color among the red, orange or yellow family. Just see to it that the color is not a high bright white.
Choose comfy furniture.
For sitting and lounging an oversized and overstuffed sofa, loveseat and ottoman will have you saying “ah”. The oversized furniture will surely make for an inviting feel for a good conversation with family or guests. Again, warm colors are a must.
Add a splash of green to your kitchen.
The kitchen is the busiest area in your home and it is also essential to make it as inviting as possible. De-clutter your kitchen and put live plants on your countertops. You can also put up a small garden of herbs on your windowsill to give it a more homey feel.
Add texture to your bathroom.
You can do this by placing thick, luxurious towels near the shower or tub. You can also place a plush area rug and some plants too. As for the windows, you can use frosted glass or bamboo shades for more light but without compromising your privacy.
With these tips, making your home more warm and welcoming will be as easy as pie. And you might just want to bake one just to give that fresh pie smell to your kitchen!
