For the majority of homeowners, once they come home from a hard day’s work, all they want to do is get cosy in front of their televisions and relax. Perhaps that’s where the term ‘Netflix and Chill’ came from? One of the best feelings anyone can have is walking into a cosy home that has the niceties of life and never having to think about anything. Below we have a few ideas that you can implement into your living space that will do just the thing!
Creating a Cozy Living Space
With a few selections of the right pieces, you can easily complement any space in your home and call it your own. Many decorators go for modern looks with contemporary pieces splashed across the different rooms. We think creating a cosy home is all about the smaller details.
What are we talking about? Items such as cushions on couches or throws on beds and stools in the kitchen can all make a home feel, well.. like home. However, the finer things such as your dining table can also add to this feeling. Besides having the right set up with dinner plates and a centrepiece made of candles and potpourri, having a few ideal rattan table mats can have one of the best visual appeals to any table no matter how big or small.
A table that you have your breakfast, lunch or dinner on, will, for the most part, look incomplete without table mats. The plus point is, you don’t need to choose boring mundane plastic ones, but rather go for an appealing set of woven wicker table mats to add some rustic charm to your home. You could either choose a mix of different colours for a playful feel or go for one colour. These are very popular in most modern and luxurious homes and come in an array of different shades from blues, to greens, natural and reds.
You can mix and match the lot with your dishes and voila! The job is easily done.it’s amazing adding a touch of colour can greatly enhance anything in the home.
Other Similar Ideas To Create A Feeling of Comfort
There are various other ideas you can use to add that sense of comfort to your house which include:
The Right Lighting: Don’t go for harsh overhead lighting, and instead opt for soft diffused lights. You can also choose table lamps to keep things ambient, instead of large chandeliers or wall lighting.
Go for Rugs: There’s nothing quite like the right piece of rug thrown onto the floor in the middle of your living room. Colours to go for would include earthy tones such as browns, beiges and khakis. Perhaps a sheepskin rug will do the trick?
Candles: You need to have candles if you’re going for cosy and comforting. Candles have a sense of calm and there are plenty to choose from. You can go with one large statement candle on your coffee table or a few smaller candles. Perhaps scented candles in blissful aromas such as lavender, eucalyptus or rosemary, are your thing? Perfect! Get a few and lay them in a circle in the middle of your dining table or on bookshelves.
