With the holidays coming up, it's a great time to start preparing for guests and visitors. There's nothing better during the cold season than a cozy home to escape the chilly air. As a host, you want your home to feel welcoming and comfortable for your visiting friends and family. Here's how to make your home feel cozy this season:
Light A Fire
Nothing says cozy more than warming up beside a fireplace. Gather your family around to swap stories and play games together. If you don't have a chimney or your fireplace is broken, then you can burn candles. Scented candles matched to the season could be the perfect addition.
When your house smells good, it feels good. You can try burning candles, decorating with cinnamon pine cones, melting wax scents, or baking something delicious to eat. Some popular seasonal scents are mistletoe, pine trees, cinnamon, and vanilla cookies. You can do a sniff test to pick one your nose will thank you for.
Quilts, Blankets, and Pillows
Displaying quilts and having extra blankets and pillows within reach are great ways to make your home feel cozy. As the seasons grow chillier, you can avoid turning up the heat by having extra comfort draped over the couch. Choose comfy pillows to help your guests feel more at home.
Keep It Clean
A clean house can be one of the most comfortable things out there. When it's a mess, there's constantly something to distract you. Keep it free of clutter, garbage, and dirty dishes to feel relaxed. By appealing to the eyes, you're creating a look of comfort that is easier to settle into. Pick up ahead of time, so you can relax and talk with visitors.
You can beat the gloom that comes with the chilly air and gray skies. A cozy home will make you and your guests feel comfortable and happy. Curling up in a blanket next to a fire in a clean house that smells good is one of the best things you can do during the cold seasons. Whether you're spending time with visitors from out of state or hanging out with local friends, your home will look, smell, and feel cozy for everyone.
