Moving into a new space? Although it can be stressful, one of the best parts of it is being able to start fresh and new. And what better way to start off your new place by making it a cozy home?
When it comes down to it, there are several ways that you can turn your new or old space into a cozy home! It’s all about making a personal space in which you feel comfortable. I mean, it is your home after all!
Whether you’re moving into a new place or making over an old one, there are a few tips and tricks you need to know before you get started with the process.
Saving Money On Furniture
First things first, you need to make sure you have enough room for new furniture in your new cozy space. However, if you do, adding new furniture can be a great way to convert a space into something fresh and new!
Unfortunately, it can be quite pricey to purchase new furniture and be able to furnish a new space. However, there are several things that you can use to save some money on furniture if you’re balling on a budget!
The first way you can save money on furniture is by purchasing your items on online marketplaces such as Facebook Marketplace or Mercari! Quite often you can find pieces that are like new and you can negotiate on the price! It’s a great way to get great, and sometimes even high-end expensive furniture for a fraction of the price.
Another place to shop for furniture is the thrift store believe it or not! The pieces are priced so low and more often than not, just need a little wipe down and they’re good to go. It’s also a great way to get unique pieces too! Although you may want to be careful when it comes to purchasing furniture pieces such as couches at the thrift store.
What Furniture Will Make My Cozy Home?
I find that when it comes to creating the perfect cozy home, it’s best to stick with pieces that really make you feel good. After all, the key to being cozy is being super comfortable. However, here are a few tips to help get you started if you’re not sure how.
One thing that I think of when I think of a cozy home is monochromatic colors. Try stick with color schemes such as browns, tans, and blacks or white, grey, and black as they help to create a cozy and monochromatic look.
Pieces such as leather couches really add that midcentury touch which is currently all the rage right now. Make sure you accent your furniture pieces with other outside factors such as flooring, carpets, decor, etc. I also find that putting together different eclectic pieces actually ends up tieing the room together to make it super homey and unique!
What Decor Works Best In A Cozy Home?
The key to the perfect cozy space really lies in the decor that is added as finishing touches. Adding little personal and unique touches to any space can really make it your own while still keeping the quaint and charm.
One thing that I think is really important and sometimes forgotten about is lighting. After all, the proper lighting can make or break any room. The vibes and overall feel of the room often change with its lighting. After all, you’re going to want to showcase all the hard interior design work you’ve done! Go for a cool overhead fixture or a unique floor lamp for maximum cozy home vibes.
Another way to make your room super cozy is to add plant life and greenery! Nothing says a cozy home more than a room that’s filled with gorgeous plants! Bring the outside in by adding small touches of green to your windowsill, floor, or even a hanging basket! It’s the perfect way to really separate the space from the rest home/apartment.
Another great decor piece that also can make the room smell amazing is candles. They are the perfect way to create a cozy home without having to spend too much money. Whether you’re into warm scents such as flannel or floral scents such as lavender, adding a candle is the perfect touch of cozy chic!
Last but not least, don’t forget to add your own personal touches. After all, you are going to be the one spending time in there! Put in whatever makes YOU feel happy such as your favorite wall art or picture frame.
