We all been there, browsing through magazines and ogling at how showrooms arrange pieces of furniture in s such an inviting way. No, it’s not j just about having expensive art pieces, but it’s how we arrange certain things in our home that sets the mood and vibe that makes it inviting. You don’t have to depend much with the design to make your guest feel welcomed and at home.
An inviting home makes it both enjoyable and memorable for you u and your guests. Here are 5 easy and inexpensive ways to make your home look cozier and inviting.
1. Make Your Entryway and Front Door Set the Inviting Tone
As your front door is the very first thing your guest will notice, let it speak for the rest of your home. As much as you would like to decorate it, make it simple and obstruction-free. Adding an indoor plant to the side of your door will do wonders as it clears out toxins and produces oxygen, the guest will feel a bit of fresh air. Don’t forget to designate a place for coat hangers and boots so don’t need to feel embarrassed opening a dark unclean closet somewhere in your home. Putting a big welcome mat can also make a difference.
2. Clear The Clutter
Nobody wants to clear away random things at the table j just to make room for dinner. And you wouldn’t stay in a room full of unused items, so make it clutter-free as much as possible. As Marie Condo used to say “If it doesn’t spark JOY, throw it” or something like it. Having a clear nice space can instantly add an inviting tone and g guest will feel more welcome as they have a place to sit on and relax.
3. Let More Natural Light In
Read magazines and interior design tips on the internet and they all have one in common – let natural light in. More architects and engineers contemplate how to harness and integrate natural light when building houses. Open up the blinds and choose light airy curtains as it also helps trick the eye in making small rooms look bigger.
4. Indulge In Soft Linens And Pillows
Pillows and linens are soft to touch and can immediately create a cozy vibe. As you may never know who your next guest is and as someone is always cold, no matter what the weather is, an extra pair of pillows is always appreciated. You can also play with textures, as it creates depth and variation of colors to the room, it’s a great and inexpensive way of making your home more inviting.
5. Add At Least One Personalized Furniture Piece.
To make your home not only inviting but interesting as well, add at least one personalized piece of furniture to a room. It’s also a great conversation starter if you are having a person visit your home for the first time. It doesn’t need to be on a pricey art gallery, try to showcase your hobby, if you love traveling try maps or a unique coffee table. Running out of ideas?
