Essentials of a Home Made for Welcoming Guests

Essentials of a Home Made for Welcoming Guests
  • Opening Intro -

    When you invite guests into your home, you want them to feel welcome and comfortable.

    Creating an environment that cultivates those kinds of feelings is different for every home but there is some common-ground that can truly help your guests feel at home.


Implementing some of the following ideas and design strategies will help you create an inviting place for friends and family to gather.


Comfortable furniture invites your guests to linger and relax. Arranging the furniture so that conversation can flow easily between everyone makes the room feel friendly. It’s also good to create a conversational area that provides a view of the focal point in the room.


The ambiance created by a flickering fire always makes a room feel cozy and welcoming. If you don’t have a built-in fireplace nor a location in which to add a built-in, there are many attractive free standing indoor fireplaces available. These fireplaces can be incorporated into any decor and almost any size room.


Neutral colors or colors described as social colors such as red, yellow and orange are considered to be could choices for a room where you want guests to feel welcome. Accent colors can be used to enliven the atmosphere of a room with a neutral color palette.

Your Front Entrance

The front door is often where guests form a first impression of your home and having an attractive door from Canadian Comfort is inviting right away. A decorative welcome mat or welcome sign or a door knocker that says, "Welcome" can add an inviting element to your front entrance. Consider taking a few ideas from Pinterest or other modern idea sites.


The textures you include in your home will contribute to its friendliness, coziness and comfort. Braided rugs, sheepskin or reindeer rugs and plush shag rugs are good choices when you’re trying to create an inviting and relaxing atmosphere in a room. You can also incorporate texture into the room with accent pillows and window treatments.


Flowers are a fantastic way to lift someone’s spirit, make them feel welcome or simply add beauty to someone’s day. Flowers are a perfect accessory for a foyer, living room, dining room or guest bathroom. Flower arrangements can be changed according to the seasons to continually diversify the decor in your home.

Wall Decor

Wall decals or wall words that express welcoming sentiments or quotes that give guests some thoughts to ponder are wonderful additions to your home decor. The pictures you display throughout your home also have an impact on how inviting the atmosphere within your home is. Hanging pictures that evoke friendliness and stir happy emotions are ideal for making guests feel comfortable in your home.

Hosting guests is not an easy task for many of us but getting the feeling just right can be an extremely rewarding experience. Consider making these changes to your home for a more improved party or visit for your guests.
