After a long day of running errands or crunching numbers at work, you want to go home to a place you feel most comfortable. A house is simply a place you reside in. But a home? That’s a place you live, laugh, love, and build never ending memories in. If you want to turn your house into a home, you need to add character and personality that stays true to who you are. To make your home more comfortable, consider these 5 tips that will never make you want to leave again!
Probably the most important room in the house, your bedroom should scream comfort and relaxation. Spending a third of your life asleep means you need a bedroom that is your own personal sanctuary. Start with the bed. Invest in a mattress that fits your preferences. Do you prefer a firm mattress or a memory foam mattress you can sink right into? Top it off with luxury sheets and a plush comforter and you’ll wake up on the right side of the bed every morning!
Aside from the bed, turn your bedroom into a private escape by decorating your walls with cherished photographs and add a unique rug to add some warmth to your hardwood floors. If you have a small bedroom, free up space by investing in convenient storage space such as drawers for underneath your bed!
The Living Room
This is the place you gather with your friends and family alike. The living room should be a place where you and guests are able to relax, socialize, and be entertained. To design a beautiful living room, you need to combine luxury with practicality. Begin by purchasing an eye-popping, yet comfortable, sofa where people can sit down and relax. Then, add in a few accent chairs that don’t compromise looks for functionality!
Another important component to creating a comfortable living room is by adding a personal touch. This is the living room, after all, so breathe some life into your living room by mixing in the old with the new. Showcase family heirlooms and antique floor lamps, paired with a modern mirror, for some added pizzazz. Incorporating personal pieces into your living room will create a comfortable space that you’ll always enjoy!
If your kitchen feels like it doesn’t belong to you, it’s time to make a change for the good. Turn your boring kitchen into a place you can dance in while you cook, sing in while you sweep, and enjoy your company with a few easy steps! As the hardest working room in your home, you’re going to need to be fully prepared. Stock your cabinets and drawers with all the essentials, such as pots and pans, utensils, various sized bowls, and appliances so you can easily make your favorite homecooked meal.
Bring life into your kitchen by investing in an indoor herb garden that provides you with the freshest produce for all your meals. Whether you’re leaning towards a modern kitchen or a rustic farmhouse design, adding homey textiles such as vibrant table clothes and flashy napkins will add some color and character to make your kitchen more comfortable. You’ll be able to stand the heat of your kitchen any time the going gets tough by implementing these simple tactics!
No one wants to go into a bathroom that looks like it belongs at a service station on the side of a highway. Take your bathroom up a notch by turning it into a luxurious oasis with spa-like comfort. Turn your bathroom from drab to fab with unique tiles and a countertop that matches. Cozy up to your bathroom with scented candles, potpourri, and incense that relax and calm you. For maximum comfort, get a bathtub tray so you can safely place your book, candle, a cup of tea, and soap in a prime location as you soak up the suds.
Not only should the inside of your home be comfortable, but the outside also has to be as well! You don’t want to be a shut-in and lose out on some great vitamin D. However, relaxing outside is difficult if you don’t have the right yard. For the most comfort, design your backyard with privacy in mind. Doing so will allow you to lay out by the pool or enjoy a candlelit dinner on your patio without neighbors or walkers watching your every move.
Turn your backyard into a luxurious outdoor living space with patio furniture you and your guests can enjoy on the hot summer days or cool fall nights surrounded by the fire. Do you enjoy the finer things in life? Install a beautiful inground pool to make a splash! Pool parties will turn your home into the go-to-spot during every summer vacation.
Turning your house into a comfortable home doesn’t have to break the bank or require a full renovation project. With a few changes, you can transform every living space into a blissful haven for you, your guests, and family to enjoy!
