Home Design Ideas for the Comfort Connoisseur

Home Design Ideas for the Comfort Connoisseur
  • Opening Intro -

    After coming home from a long day of work, nobody wants to feel like they're walking into a stark art museum, or worse, a prison cell.

    Creating a comfortable home is an important aspect of living a happy life.


And lucky for you, it’s easy to add comfort along with style to your house. The following are four ideas to help you insert a little cozy into your home.

Be Mindful About Lighting Choices

Nothing ruins the mood of a romantic dinner at home or an exciting family movie night than harsh lighting. One of the best ways to create a comfortable space is to focus on the lighting in your house. Make sure there is at least one lamp in every room, which gives off subtle light as you’re winding down for the evening.

Choose light bulbs that have a warm color tone (also called low-color-temperature) rather than the harsh blue light of some bulbs. In your bedroom, hang window fixtures that allow sunlight in during the day, but block out all light to create a dark space for sleeping.

Keep Comfortable Accessories Within Reach

Whether you live in a warm or cold climate, it’s always nice to cuddle up with something soft. Don’t waste the opportunity to add comfort and style to every room with decorative pillows and throws. Choose accent pillows that add a pop of color to the room, but also provide comfort for lounging on the couch. Consider texture when choosing pillows.

From faux fur to knit, interesting fabric choices add visual interest to a space, and also provide something soft to cozy up to. Keep a light blanket within reach in every room in case you or your guests get cold. By making smart decisions about the addition of comfortable items, they can be a great way to add texture and color to your décor.

Add a Little Luxury to Your Home

Are you planning any upcoming renovations? Take advantage of the work you’re already doing and add something luxurious to your remodel. Take the time to think about hot tub deck ideas for your backyard. Nothing beats relaxing after a long day like lounging in a new hot tub on your deck, or a bubbling Jacuzzi in the master bathroom.

And don’t stop with just adding a hot tub to your outdoor space. Create a comfortable entertainment area with the addition of mood lighting and outdoor speakers, terrace seating, or even building an arbor for visual interest and a bit of privacy.

Splurge on Key Pieces of Furniture

Nobody likes lounging in front of the TV in an uncomfortable armchair. Make smart furniture purchases by being realistic about how you’re going to use each piece. Splurge on a nice couch or recliner for the living room and a comfortable mattress for sleeping. Think outside the box when it comes to the other rooms in your house as well.

Why not add banquette seating in the dining room instead of the traditional wooden chairs? Or hang a hammock outside for some nice summertime relaxing in the yard. Watch your spending on things like artwork and smaller décor so that you can splurge on the pieces you’ll be sitting on day in and day out.

By keeping in mind these four ideas, it will be easy for you to add comfort and style to your living space. Don’t be satisfied with just owning a house. From details like lighting and throw pillows, to luxury items such as a nice mattress or a new hot tub, adding comfort is what really turns your house into a home.
