Almost everyone you talk to will agree – they want their house to feel as warm and comfortable as possible. Usually, this would mean having a cozy and inviting space for all to enjoy and making the room feel as if it’s radiating warmth as your guests enter.
Achieving this will call for a few changes, but before you know it, your home will give off a comforting vibe that all will feel as they enter your home.
Most think that curtains are just for a designer touch or as a practical window covering, but surprisingly curtains can do a lot more to make your home feel warm and extra comfortable. Adding curtains to your main spaces, such as living rooms, dining rooms or even within a front entrance, brings in a layer of warmth that will play off the coolness of the window and the outside scenery.
Try to choose curtains or material types that match your room that playoff other colors and accents within the space, as this will help pull the entire look together. For example, in the dining room, you may want a decadent and luxurious curtain, whereas, at your front entrance, you could choose a lighter material that will flow with the traffic of in and out guests and family members.
While stand-alone lighting is essential to every room, you can’t forget to layer different types of lighting in each room to create an overall warmth. To achieve this feeling, try to choose lights in various forms and shapes to create a layered feel within each room. For example, you may have a prominent light fixture in the center of the room that provides nice bright light, so to add to that, you would want to add a standing light or table lamp to bring in a lower light source.
To complete the look, you could also consider adding some candles or battery-operated lights to add small but cozy accents to the room. By creating this layered effect, you will help the home stand out and feel comfortable by having different tones and shades spread throughout the space.
Last but not least, what better way to bring warmth into a room than with a fireplace. Whether you install a beautiful Valor Fireplace that provides radiant heat throughout the whole room or consider a smaller, electric fireplace to fit the space, adding in those flickering flames will provide instant comfort that everyone can enjoy.
Fireplaces also act as a great focal point for any room in the home and provide a place for everyone to gather after a chilly, long day.
