As the winter days grow closer, most of us are going to spend more and more time retreating to the warmth and comfort of our homes. Since you likely took measures to make your space feel light and airy for the summer, you’re going to need to layer back in warm and cozy elements before the cold returns. Even if you’re selling your house this fall or winter and plan to cozy up somewhere else, making your home warmer and more inviting is an important step to attracting buyers looking this time of year.
Fortunately, the process doesn’t have to be too difficult. Try these tricks below to bring some extra coziness to your home this season!
Textured elements bring instant warmth and comfort to your space. Choose soft, raised textures, such as plush, fur, rattan, velvet, etc. Incorporate them through cozy accents like throw pillows for the couch, a blanket draped over an arm chair, wicker storage baskets, an ottoman coffee table, and even in furniture upholstery.
Use area rugs.
An easy way to bring both visual and tactile warmth to a room is to lay down a big area rug (or layer a few smaller ones). You’ll add warmth underfoot and ground the room in coziness. For maximum cozy effect, choose something soft and solid—as opposed to airy woven or knitted rugs—and with warm and/or bright colors.
Create conversational areas.
Group furniture in a way that invites conversation and promotes socializing to create a homey, welcoming atmosphere. Arrange couches and chairs to face each other, place a coffee table (or that ottoman) in the middle, and maybe add a breakfast tray on top of it. For a little extra personality and warmth, mix and match furniture pieces rather than using an identical set.
Bring in natural elements.
Organic elements are a go-to trick for infusing extra life and warmth into a space. Cozy up any room with some greenery, flowers (real or faux!), and by incorporating wood features and natural fibers.
