It is absolutely okay to splurge on your home — after all, it is that one place where you spend most of your time. This is essentially why people spend so much time and money on their home. A home should feel welcoming. Irrespective of wherever you are in the world, your home should beckon you.
While you can always buy comfortable and opulent stuff to make your home comfortable and lively, sometimes, it is better to use one’s creativity to create an individualistic appearance. Your home should be a reflection of who you are and not the home decor store you buy your stuff from. Here are a few ideas that you can use to make your home more beautiful and comfortable.
1. Make your home bright and colorful:
To make your home look more welcoming, play with colors. There are people who like to pick on beige and whites, but not only are these difficult to maintain, they also appear dull at times. To make your home more interesting, play with colors. For instance, color contrast your bed sheets and pillows to give your rooms a more lively appeal. Similarly, include a colored rug in the drawing room to make it look a bit more playful.
2. Sometimes, it’s okay to have less furniture:
I know people who spent a huge deal of money on expensive furniture which after being finally placed made their home look exactly like a furniture store. To make your home more comfortable, get casual. You can make your rooms look bigger by putting in less furniture. As a matter of fact, create a room for your friends by using floor pillows and low tables because sometimes, sitting on the floor feels more comfortable than sitting on a couch.
3. Include some greens in your house:
If you are lucky enough to have a house with a garden, you are sorted. However, if you live in one of those big-city apartments, you can make your home a little more comfortable by including some potted plants. Not only will these plants keep the air inside your home fresh, they will also bring some liveliness in your life. Not just that, they make the perfect backdrop for your evening tea.
4. Get an aquarium:
This will make more sense if you are someone who stays alone. A fish aquarium is not only very beautiful, it is also quite easy to maintain. The fishes have to be fed only twice a day and unlike other pets, you don’t need to take them out for a walk each day. A beautiful aquarium can actually become the highlight of your home. And you will be surprised to see the kind of bonding you will develop with your fishes.
5. Create an entertainment room:
If you truly want to make your home a place you would never want to leave, you must create an entertainment room in it. An entertainment room doesn’t necessarily have to be a room with a big screen and movie player, it could also be a room dedicated to something that you like. For instance, if you like playing pool, you can put a pool table inside this room and invite your friends on weekends to have a great time. Likewise, your entertainment room may actually be a video game room. The idea is to create a room that has everything that you absolutely love.
