5 Design Tips To Make Your Home Feel Cozy
Have you ever walked into someone's house and immediately felt like it was a home? I have and every time I do I pay attention to what it is about their house that makes it feel more cozy and inviting.
Here are some great tips from our Showhome Furniture designers, created just for you! Remember, if you want a free design consultation, don't hesitate to give us a call. Helping our customers create stunning spaces that brings you happiness is our number one goal.
First, pay attention to the color of your walls. A lighter more natural color is perfect for a cozy feeling. Make sure it is a warm color. Colors like grey are normally considered cool colors but there are tons of warm greys tones out there to choose from.
I have noticed that homes where natural wood is used in their decor naturally feel cozier. Nature really has a soothing effect for people and being able to use it in furniture and accessories is a perfect way to invite people in. At Showhome Furniture, we love wood. You will find that our solid wood tables, couches, chairs and accessories are one of our favorite things to sell. Each piece is unique and it lasts a long time.
Rugs are a perfect accessory to cozy up a room and fill it with warmth. I love the thick shaggy ones as well as the less shaggy wool rugs.
Layering your home with texture helps to intrigue your eye and causes you to feel more at home and connected to the space you are in. Our brains like mystery, and when you bring in different textures you are causing your brain to stick around to discover all the layers.
Lastly, bring in plants! Plant, whether living or artificial, have a way of tying a whole room together. It's color and texture fill in spaces and add ambiance to your home.
I would love to hear about your adventures in creating a cozy home! Also, don't forget that Showhome Furniture offers free design consultations to their customers.
