Let make our haven enjoyable and memorable for fall with these 5 quick home hacks – done in a jif!
How to make your home cozy at any time
How to make your home cozy and calm this fall (and for every season) is really pretty simple when you break it down. The following home hacks will help welcome everyone who walks through its doors. We can prepare our hearts too. But beware, when you know how to make your house cozy and warm, you may have trouble getting folks to leave!
1. Add Darkness & Light
Most days, I want the sun to pour in but when we want to cozy up on the couch with movies, I enjoy heavy window treatments that shut out the light and adding my own soft lighting inside. The flickering light of candles and other soft light sources are so calming.
This year, I’ve been obsessed with those flameless, faux candles that flicker just like the real thing. I have a few but can’t get enough of them! These are in my shopping cart right this very minute because they also come with a remote and can be used outside as well…
2. Add softness
One of the quickest, cheapest, and easiest ways to cozy up your home is by simply adding blankets, throws, and pillows in a variety of heavier materials. Don’t have new fall pillows or throws? Just tie a piece of remnant burlap around the center of one of your pillows or hot glue some fall fabric around it like this…
3. Add nostalgic scents
Of course, nothing says cozy like yummy smells in the home. Whether you are into candle, meltable wax, or essential oils, I suggest putting one of them in a pretty container that you love and burning when you walk in the door. Nothing calms my stress away like a fall-scented candle or gluten free banana bread or pumpkin cupcakes baking in the oven.
4. Add warmth
One home hack I’ve had to learn when figuring out how to make your home cozy is to add different textures to a room. Walk into your non-cozy space right now and tell me what textures are there already? Do you already have wood, galvanized metal, fabric like burlap, or any fuzzy materials? If you had a hard time finding a variety of textures in your room, my advice is to just add a little bit of what you are missing.
I believe that’s why the farmhouse living craze has been so popular. We are drawn to spaces that have a mixture of woods, chalkboard, greenery, burlap, metal, etc. Doesn’t that last sentence make you think of THE farmhouse? It’s really pretty simple really.
5. Add plants or small furniture
Fill those empty corners and empty spaces economically with plants and small pieces of decor. This doesn’t have to be expensive. Simply add baskets with cozy blankets in them to the corners of the room. Add a stack of old books on a shelf. Put a container of flowers (real or faux) in a container on the coffee table.
