5 Simple Ways to
Make Your Home More Cozy
1. Throw on the Layers
When the weather gets cool, clothes aren’t the only thing you should be layering. One easy way to make your home more feel cozy is to layer on the blankets, throws and pillows.
Nothing says cozy quite like layers and textures. Fabrics like wool, linen and sheepskins are the order of the day at this time of year.
Throw them over the backs of chairs, on the seat of your sofa or keep blankets neatly rolled in a basket so you and you can grab them anytime you feel the chill.
2. Add a Rug (or even two!)
Tile and wooden floors have been very popular in modern and minimalist design, but you can’t beat an area rug to warm up a cool floor.
Not only are they a great way to add visual interest to the room, rugs on bare floors help keep in heat, meaning they are literally warming your space.
You can even layer rugs on top of each other for extra coziness on your feet.
3 . Create a warm glow
Nothing says cozy like a flicker of a flame. I love getting candles and dotting them throughout the home, through the living room, kitchen and even the bathroom. It creates such a warm, cocoon like feel.
If you have a fireplace, building a fire is a great way to generate warmth and creating a relaxing environment, but even if you don’t, candles can help transform the mood of any room with their soft glow.
4. Get the scent going
Scent is one of the things can set the mood in a room even before you enter it. An enticing fragrance adds to the coziness of a room as well as complements the decor to create a warm, welcoming feeling.
Warm scents like vanilla, and cinnamon are perfect for getting cozy to those cold days. Candles are great for this reason as well. I also like using a diffuser with essential oils to help with the dry air in the room.
And if you’re up for a little DIY, I have a great tutorial on how to make DIY cinnamon vanilla candle that smells as good as it looks. Check out the full tutorial here!
5. Pillows Everywhere
Pillows are another easy way to change up your decor and instantly make space seem cozy. Pile them on top of your sofa, bed, or even place a few on the floor for sitting on.
Pick pillows with different textures and materials to make it fun. And by adding one or two throw blankets and some pillows in your living room, you’ll be ready to curl up, read a book and relax.
