Homes are the one place we all want to be when we have had enough of the world. They, therefore, need to function as a calming haven. To ensure that your home is your best escape from the ‘Sobibors’ and pressures of the busy outside world, comfort has to be among your biggest priorities. Right from the moment you enter the front door, your home should inspire relaxation and reflect comfort. But all this doesn’t happen magically.
It is your investment into your space that determines how comfortable your home will be. Whatever you do, you have to balance comfort and style to give your home that elegant look. This is not to mention that a comfortable home is more inviting and appealing to guests. Also, some elements of comfort can go a long way into enhancing your home’s resale value. You just have to be keen and creative about your exterior design and interior décor. With this having been said, here are a few design ideas you can borrow to make your home that calming haven you deserve but long for:
1. Include a Plush Sectional
A living room with no deep seating option isn’t that comfy. If you are a family person, like having movie nights with friends, or even love a good sleep stretched out in your living room, you need to have a plush sectional in there. You decide to have a sofa or sectional, but what is most important is the extra space. Even if you pick either of the two, top it with patterned pillows to give it that extra cushioning that is the key to comfort. At the same time, be considerate of the color pattern that you choose.
2. Work on the Outdoors
When creating a comfy vibe for your home, the outdoors should not be neglected. A lot of focus should actually go to the home’s exterior because it is the first thing one comes across when getting into the home. In this case, you will want to keep your lawn mowed, and your garden tended to. The good thing is that there are a lot of home tips online to help you keep your external compound looking cool and sassy. Look out for guides on choosing lawn mowers, tree trimmers, and bush clippers. Sweepers, garden hoses, and so forth.
The list you can do is keeping your home exterior looking green, neat, and clean. If your budget allows it, you can also introduce an outdoor living space – say a kitchen or a hangout lounge for those weekend family gatherings.
3. Play Pro with Several Textures
Especially in the living room, combining different textures in your home is very important. For example, you can have a combination of:
- Baskets and natural fibers
- Plush and soft tapestry
- Smooth leather and rough natural woods
The key to getting that comfortable and peaceful haven of yours even more elegant is engaging all the senses in each room in the house. Pairing different textures and materials can give your house that accent mix that brings out a cozy and comfy look. For instance, you could pair a slip-covered sofa with a leather bench. For the bedroom, you could decide to go for a raw-wood headboard and offset it with piles of soft linen pillows.
4. Layer Some Rugs
Comfort and style go hand in hand. This is why it is essential to look at your ragging. If you want to have that comfort in your home, layering rugs can help add some definition to your floor while bringing out the elements of elegance and comfort it ought to have. As you pile them up, rags set a foundation depth that creates comfort for the feet. This is most suitable for kids’ rooms, bedrooms, or rooms that dampen the noise in. for the foundation of the rugs, use a natural fiber rug and then top it up with cowhide or fluffy sheepskin for that plush finishing touch.
5. Get Poufs in the Mix
These versatile pieces will always blend in your home to add up to that style and comfort you wish to have in your home. Other than the fact that they are essential for that extra seating space they provide, footrests, and at times work as side tables, they also work in any room in the house. Adding to the advantages of these poufs is their endless chic and durability. If you are looking for a stylish living room and a comfy one as well, make sure you include these poufs in the room. However, make sure you are keen on their color to give the room that elegant look with matching colors in the house.
6. How About an Overstuffed Chair?
A good bedroom is not just a good bed. If you want to make that room all comfy and good looking simultaneously, you will have to get yourself an oversized armchair. With this, you can curl up on the chair with a book or with a cup of coffee. Other than the comfort it gives, it brings the idea of practicality and gives it that stylish appeal a bedroom ought to have. Furthermore, your bedroom is the most private space you have in your home. So, make it your ultimate haven for relaxation.
7. Try Adding Some Lush Bedding Layers
There is no other place you want to be most comfortable in your home like your bed. The top of your bed should have those colors that spike your favorite dreams. Design the top with dreamy bedding, blankets adding warmth and color, and soft textured pillows to give it that plush comfort.
A comfortable house is the best place you want to be, especially after a long day at work or running errands. After a day’s hassle, you want to be in a peaceful living room stretched out, and later head for that bed that gives you your best dreams. Your house is your best haven, and that’s why you need to invest in making it as comfy as it can get!
