Sharing is caring!

Let’s take a look at some easy decorating ideas that will make your home feel cozy!

It is my favorite compliment to receive: “Your home is so comfortable!” It is a sign that my guests feel at home in my home.

I get asked a lot about how I make my house cozy. So I decided to write this post. I’ll be sharing the things I use when decorating and you might find some tips to help make your home more inviting.


Lighting is essential to make your home comfortable. Lighting is the most important thing to make your home cozy.

You can start designing a warm space by first assessing the lighting situation.

  • How many light sources can you find in your home?
  • How do you feel about the lighting? Are you happy with it?
  • Are the bulbs that you use warm or cold?

Avoid single, harsh overhead lighting.

You should have ample task lighting, table and floor lamps, candles, and candles that are scented. Ambiance lighting, and task lighting.

Make clusters to illuminate the areas you desire as focal points or conversation points.

If additional lighting is not an option due to budget constraints, you can still make sure that you only use warm bulbs in rooms you desire to be cozy.

What are cold lighting and warm lighting? The temperature on your light bulb will tell you how yellow (warm), or blue (cold).

Warm white costs around 3000k while Cool white costs around 5000k. The lower the K (kelvin), then the colder it is.

This is why candlelight feels so cozy. A candle’s color temperature is approximately 1850k, which is a very warm light.

BANISH ANY LOW-TEMP LIMITING LIGHTS IN YOUR HOME. They do not serve you any favors.


If you don’t have any plants, it’s worth seriously considering adding them!

But beware: eventually, your plants will die. Even experienced gardeners can experience this so don’t panic! It’s all part of the learning process.

It is possible to get expensive plants, but you can still save money and have lush greenery.

  • Learn how to propagate existing plants
  • Ask for cut-offs from family and friends
  • Collect fallen succulent leaves from garden centers and propagate them. Just ask the manager of the store – they will always permit since they wouldn’t be thrown out anyway!

You can also accessorize with many different beautiful vessels, which is another great advantage of having lots of plants!

Plants placed in pots, baskets, or planters are very cozy and can add texture and interest to any space.

– Select pots or planters that are warm in tones like terracotta, or warm metallics like brass.

– You can choose baskets from seagrass and other natural woven material.


Laminate flooring and hardwood floors are great but can become chilly during the colder seasons. The same applies to tiles.

You will feel instantly more comfortable and warmer if you place layers between your body and the ground.

Beautiful rugs can be used in every room of the house.

You can also use rugs in your bathroom or kitchen – many people are using beautiful Persian rugs to decorate their bathrooms and kitchens!


How can I add texture to my home?

Simple! You can place any textural objects you are drawn to in your home.

Consider what you do when you shop: Do you touch the things that you are attracted to? This is what I do all the time! Many items that are “touchable” will have interesting textures.

Encourage this behavior in your tulum homes for sale as well!

Texture describes the surface quality material has.

Here are some easy ways to add texture and warmth to your home.

  • Place woven baskets that contain extra pillows or throw blankets.
  • Use textiles in inviting fabrics, such as velvet, faux fur, and chunky knit.
  • Pile on the pillows
  • You can create a variety of tactile experiences by mixing accessories made from le
    ather ceramic, or wood.
  • A simple, but elegantly designed shelf of books adds texture to a room.
  • If you don’t own a shelf, stack your books. If they are tidy, stacks can be very satisfying to look at.


If nothing is hanging on your walls, and you aren’t sure why your home feels so stark or empty, hang something!

It can be striking to have a wall empty and just one piece of art. However, if you choose this route with your art make sure it is not accidental.

Prints can be a good option for those who don’t have the funds to invest in original artwork.

Besides painting and prints, you can also hang:

  • Fiber art
  • Textile wall hangings
  • beautiful quilts
  • Take your photos
  • Mirrors
  • Children’s artwork

If you are renting and don’t have the right to use nails, consider using adhesive commands strips or hooks which won’t leave any holes in your walls.
