I think the one most important thing our homes should do for us is give us a comfortable place to relax and unwind. Warm blankets, comfy places to curl up and sit. Great sheets on our beds. Soothing essential oils that remind us we are home and can finally just chill out. It helps so much in this hectic world of ours. Maintaining a clean and tidy home I think is mandatory for this. No one wants to go home and go to “work” after we get off work. But a little picking up and cleaning every day does wonders.

Homes should be places where you can sit back, relax and allow the stresses and strains of the day to melt away. But, that’s not always what they’re like. Sometimes, the comfort factor just isn’t there. 

In this post, we take a look at some of the quick ways you can make your home cozier so that you’ll never want to leave. Check them out below:  

Give Your Living Room A Makeover

Giving your living room a DIY makeover is one of the best ways to make your home more comfortable. 

Here are some ideas you might like to try: 

  • Install modern sectionals to create the ultimate sofa setup for you and your family
  • Add floral elements to create a softer feel to the room, undoing harsh lines
  • Add more mixed neutrals, creating layers of tones and shades
  • If you have a hard floor, put down a rug to provide a pleasant sensation for your toes when you walk on it
  • Put up pictures that remind you of happy times in the past
  • Invest in recessed lighting to build a cozy atmosphere in the evening
  • Add new throws and cushions to your existing seating

Renovate Your Porch

Your porch and front door area are the first thing that you see after getting home from a busy day. They set the scene for what’s to follow. 

If they look sparkly and new, then it puts you in a good mental space and helps you appreciate the rest of your rooms. However, if they look run down, then it can foster a negative view of everything else. 

Usually, renovating your porch is just a matter of scraping off the old paint and applying a fresh undercoat and gloss. Other improvements could include adding pot plants either side of your door, improving the draft insulation and even installing columns. 

Create A Picture Montage

For some people, pictures are highly emotive. Just seeing a happy scene from your past can boost your mood and help you to look on the bright side of life and feel more comfortable. 

Putting up a single photo is okay. But creating a montage is a lot more fun. 

Start by finding a bunch of images that make you happy. Then decide how you’re going to create your montage. If you’re low on space, you may wish to cut out relevant sections of each photograph individually, stick them to a backing board, and then place them inside a single frame. However, if you have more room, you could try experimenting with placing each picture in a single frame and then arranging them in an attractive way on your walls. 

Don’t be afraid to use up a lot of space on your walls. Oversized features look great in most rooms. 

Go Solar to Avoid Outages, Save Money and Help The Environment

Solar energy is becoming ever more accessible. This means that you can save money on your energy bills and help the environment at the same time. It’s alarming how animal caused power outage stats and figures are rising in recent times. Gone are the days when you used to worry about power outages.

Take the plunge and install solar panels on your roof. These will provide you with power in a blackout situation and help reduce your electric bills during regular usage. With net metering, you may even find that your meter actually runs backward a few days of the year!

This is an investment that pays off over time and helps you make your home both comfortable and sustainable.

Put Fresh Flowers On Rotation

Lastly, regularly rotating fresh flowers in your home is one of the best ways to make it feel more comfortable. Flowers are welcoming and relaxing, and they help you better connect with nature. Just make sure that you get somebody to deliver them on a regular and predictable schedule. 

I think the one most important thing our homes should do for us is give us a comfortable place to relax and unwind.
