*This is a collaborative post*

Whether you’re living with many family members, a few of your closest friends, or even by yourself, your home sometimes becoming messy and full of clutter is unavoidable. Properly organising your house will not only help you keep it clean but will also make it seem a lot homier. Here are a few simple ways to renovate your space and make your house feel homier.

Review your colour palette

A warm colour palette will make your home cosy and welcoming, and since your home is somewhere you want to relax your mind and soul, steering away from any bright and bold colours and instead opting for softer tones will quickly make your house feel a lot homier. An easy way to add warm tones into your home is by adding artwork onto your walls, or even placing dried flowers and leaves into various rooms.

Combine textures

Speaking of interior additions, adding and combining textures is another simple way to make your house feel cosier. When it comes to interior design, texture refers to using furniture, objects, and other finishes to create visual interest in a room. The texture is essential to giving a room vibrancy and warmth and can add depth as well as comfort. It’s also easy to match your textures to the season. And remember, every single element of a room – the flooring, furnishings, wall finishes, accessories, and even artwork – is a chance to incorporate and combine new textures.

Experiment with layered lighting

Just putting on the main light can make a room seem rather empty. Instead, placing lamps around a room and adding dimmers to your light switches can help you create some warm lighting that can be adjusted later in the evening gets. Candles are also a quick way to make a room feel homier, as well as add a gorgeous smell to any space. For the cosiest of smells, think clean and subdued scents like lemongrass, lavender, sandalwood, and seasonal spices.

Mask empty areas

Big empty areas can often make a home feel cold and blank. Instead, filling these spaces and masking empty areas can make a space feel more welcoming. For example, converting your understairs storage into something practical or visually appealing can make a place feel more inviting in no time. Equally, a statement rug can hide a wide expanse of flooring and add a pop of colour to a living space.

It doesn’t matter what season it is, coming home to a warm and welcoming space can make all the difference. Better yet, you don’t need to completely break the bank to transform a space and add some cosiness to it. Just follow the above ways to make your house homier, and very soon, you won’t ever want to leave!
